Why You'll Love It

Welcome to the Essex model at Silo Bend in Lockport, IL!

Get inspired! This 2,872 square foot Urban Farmhouse Essex model is a new, smartly designed, floorplan that has it all: an open-concept kitchen, breakfast nook, and family room; a den and a flex room; four bedrooms and a loft; two-and-a-half bathrooms; an upper-floor laundry room; and a standard three-car garage.

As you enter the front door, a flex room that has been decorated as a welcoming living room sits on one side. Continue forward and you’ll find the tucked away staircase to the second floor and basement, adjacent to a coat closet for guests.

The main living spaces, which includes the kitchen, breakfast area, and family room, are all open to each other, making it a true open-concept floorplan. The stunning kitchen is lined with 42-inch latte-colored cabinetry with white countertops, dark hardware, GE® stainless steel appliances, accented by stunning gold lighting fixtures. The large center island with a gorgeous Kohler® ceramic farmhouse sink finishes off the kitchen, providing more functional space, storage, and seating.

Tucked into the corner is the owner’s entry to the mud room entrance, which shows the space with more cabinetry with a countertop—a great space to house a drop zone for keys or mail. A walk-in closet finishes the mud room, so there’s no shortage of storage space for your bulky winter coats. Back out through the kitchen, another entryway can be found near the rear of the home in the breakfast area, this time leading to a private den, powder room, and a landing for backyard access. The den is beautifully decorated with floor-to-ceiling white custom cabinetry and plenty of modern lighting—a perfect background for work-from-home virtual meetings.

Upstairs, the Essex holds four bedrooms, a loft, a second-floor laundry room, and a hall bath. The owner’s suite sits in the rear corner of the home and features a tray ceiling, dual-toned paint colors, and our impressive luxury walk-in shower option. This spa-like bathroom leads to a large walk-in closet and even a secondary closet near the private water closet.

The three secondary bedrooms are beautifully furnished to showcase the size of their space. Each bedroom is equipped with a closet and has large windows for lots of natural light to shine in. Finishing off this floor is the hallway bathroom, which features dual vanities and a soaker tub, and the laundry room with plenty of cabinetry and a sink. The days of lugging laundry up and down the stairs are long gone with this floorplan.
