With just six opportunities for buyers to choose there own finishes and “Enjoy Life” in a brand new Lake Hills townhome, Olthof Homes has completed development in the maintenance-free sections of one of the area’s most scenic neighborhoods.

Now there are five.

Along with the benefit of being able to move into a brand new and highly efficient 5-Star Energy Rated townhome as soon as they are ready, the latest buyers were attracted by the many advantages of Lake Hills living, according to New Homes Sales Consultant Maria Gurtler.

“Lake Hills offers residents features not found in any other community - rolling hills, calming lakes, scenic open areas and a dense forest border make it a very special place to call home,” she said. “Beyond that, a community clubhouse, amphitheater, walking trails and a fishing pier, plus a few different community parks, add to the uniqueness of Lake Hills.”

For homebuyers in search of the perfect maintenance-free home, Lake Hills boasts a convenient central St. John location on W. 85th Street just east of Route 41, where Olthof homes is building elegant townhomes loaded with exceptional features inside and out for homebuyers in search of the perfect maintenance-free home.

“The majority of our buyers carefully considered all their options before choosing Lake Hills. There’s no doubt that the location is great – St. John was named one of the Top 100 Best Places to Live by CNN/Money Magazine – and the scenery is amazing. But ultimately, it’s the value of the amenities offered by Olthof Homes that sold them,” Gurtler explained.

“Our Lake Hills townhomes come complete with the options they’re looking for – 9-foot ceilings and plenty of windows to make the living space bright and airy on the main floor as well as the finished lower level, 42-inch kitchen cabinets, a main floor master suite with attached bath plus walk-in closet and a lower level bedroom also with a walk-in closet and full bath. The master bedroom easily accommodates large pieces of furniture like an armoire or four-post bed with plenty of space to move around, while the lower level bedroom offers comfort and privacy for both long- and short-term guests.”

Located on the north end of Lake Hills, right across the street from the 38-acre “Golf Lake,” community center and amphitheater, Olthof’s townhomes flank a core of stunning executive-style homes, the majority of which are valued over a million dollars. With just five remaining opportunities for buyers, including two that back up to the woods, pricing starts at $250,162 for a two-bedroom Augusta with 1,983 square feet of living space. The Muirfield offers the option for three bedrooms, two up and one down.

“All five of the available townhomes are in the early stage of construction, so they offer buyers the opportunity to make their own specific selections when it comes to flooring, doors, cabinets, lighting and plumbing fixtures,” Gurtler added. “It’s also important to note that everyone appreciates all the storage space in our townhomes. They were carefully designed to make it easy to stay organized, from stowing seasonal items and decorations to pursuing specialized hobbies like woodworking, sewing or crafting. The attached garage is also another wide open space since lawn mowers and snow shovels are no longer needed thanks to the ease of maintenance-free living.”

With no yard to mow during the warm weather months, there will be plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful community vistas and views from the concrete patios and wood decks included with each townhome.

“By itself, Lake Hills has so much to offer,” Gurtler said. “Residents can catch bass from the fishing pier, exercise on the extensive trail system, socialize at the parks, walk to community concerts and enjoy impromptu picnics right in their very own neighborhood. Then there’s all that St. John has to offer, and we’re just a short commute from Chicago for both work and play.”

While buyers searching for maintenance-free living have many options, Lake Hills and Olthof Homes have been exceeding the expectations of townhome buyers in St. John for several years. Now, with just five brand new opportunities remaining in this community of distinctive homes, time is running out. Based on the fact that Gurtler has already sold one of the six final townhomes to be built in Lake Hills, now is the time to visit her and see Lake Hills for your self.

To see the last five townhomes offering maintenance-free living in Lake Hills, visit the Olthof Homes sales center at 9911 Settlers Court in St. John Tuesday-Thursday 11am-6pm, Friday 11am-5pm and Saturday 10am-5pm. You can also call Maria Gurtler at (219) 365-3674 or go to
