The Essex is a new floorplan debuting in the Chicagoland market. This home 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; upper-floor laundry; and a standard three-car garage. Come explore!
Choose from five distinct exterior elevations such as the trendy Urban Farmhouse with board and batten siding, black front door, and black windows.
As you enter the front door, a flex room sits to the side of the home. This space can be closed off to create a private study, or leave it as is and transform the space yourself to fit whatever your lifestyle calls for! Continue forward and you’ll find the nicely tucked away staircase and an adjacent coat closet for guests. From here, the home opens up beautifully to the open-concept main living spaces, which includes the kitchen, breakfast area, and family room.
The kitchen is lined with lots of cabinetry and has a large center island. Tucked into the corner of the kitchen is the entry to the private mud room entrance, which provides lots of space for taking off boots and coats during the cold Chicago winters. A walk-in closet finishes the mud room, so there’s no shortage of space in this room. 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 den, powder bath, and a landing with backyard access. The den can be converted to a first-floor guest room, perfect for when family is staying over!
Upstairs, the Essex holds four bedrooms and a loft. The owner’s suite sits in the rear corner of the home and has a private en-suite bathroom attached. The bathroom leads to a large walk-in closet and even a secondary closet near the private water closet. There are two different owner’s bathroom options if you’re looking to change up the standard layout, including one option with a separate soaking tub and shower, and another with a large walk-in shower.
The three secondary bedrooms share no walls, creating lots of privacy within the home. The loft can even be converted to a fifth bedroom if you’d like! Finishing off this floor is the hallway bathroom, the laundry room, and a hallway linen closet.
The Essex is waiting for you to call it home; are you ready to call it home? Welcome to Better. Welcome to the Essex!
