Hinsdale, Ill.-based Foxford Communities announced the start of sales at Clocktower Pointe, a 108-unit luxury condominium development in Countryside, Ill. Clocktower Pointe is one of the only new-construction condominiums in the area to offer buyers two-bedroom homes with up to 2,267 square feet and luxury finishes such as Bosch appliances. The grand opening for sales at Clocktower Pointe will be on Saturday, May 31, and will include a tour of a newly decorated model home.
Located at the intersection of Joliet Road and Willow Springs Road, the luxury condominium development is just minutes from Interstates 55 and 294, providing easy access to the city and surrounding suburbs for commuters.
Originally started in 2009 by another developer, Clocktower Pointe came to a halt due to the recession after the first of six planned buildings was completed. Foxford purchased Clocktower Pointe in the fall of 2013 and began construction on a second building, which will be move-in ready this fall.
“Revitalizing stalled residential real estate projects is what we do,” said Peter Brennan, president of Foxford Communities. “When we looked at Clocktower Pointe we saw great potential. Not only is it one of the only luxury condominium developments in the area, but it’s also in one of the best locations in Countryside with access to just about any type of shopping and restaurant a homeowner would enjoy.”
Each six-story, 18-unit building will include a combination of brick, limestone and stucco exterior. The two-bedroom homes have 2 to 2½ baths with select plans offering an option to include a third bedroom. Homes are priced from $359,900 to $550,000, with approximately 1,882 to 2,267 square feet.
With only four units to a floor, each building offers optimum privacy as each home encapsulates a corner unit. This layout also means windows wrap around on two sides of each residence to let in natural light. Additionally, all of the Clocktower Pointe condominiums provide a large, flexible and open living area that leads to oversized private outdoor balconies and/or terraces that range from 165 to 1,000 square feet, providing ample space for a full-sized grill and patio furniture.
“The combined indoor and outdoor living area makes it a perfect space for entertaining,” said Brennan. “Terraces on the penthouse suites even offer expansive views of the city skyline and include access from both the living room and master bedroom, which can help optimize traffic flow when entertaining.”
Homes at Clocktower Pointe feature upscale, eat-in gourmet kitchens with quartz countertops, Bosch stainless steel appliances and custom kitchen cabinets. Additionally, each home includes a master suite featuring a walk-in closet and master bath with a soaking tub, walk-in shower and a quartz-topped double-bowl vanity. Residences also include a large laundry room complete with a full-capacity side-by-side, top-load washer and dryer.
“With only four plans per floor, and only two on the penthouse level, Clocktower Pointe offers homes so spacious that in some cases they rival single-family home sizes,” said Brennan. “It’s an ideal community for those looking to downsize from a home and enjoy maintenance-free living.
And, when you combine the homes generous space and high end features with such a convenient location, it’s also a smart home for professionals looking to commute downtown.”
Additional standard features in Clocktower Pointe condominiums include nine-foot ceilings that create a spacious feel along with crown molding and hard wood floors in the kitchen, living and dining room areas. Each building also includes an elevator and a secured heated parking garage with extra storage space.
Nestled in the bustling Countryside community, Clocktower Pointe is part of the highly regarded Lyons Township High School district and minutes away from shopping, dining, theaters and recreational activities provided by the surrounding country clubs and golf courses. Conveniently located for commuters, the condominium complex is only 30 minutes away from downtown Chicago. Its close proximity to Interstates 55 and 294, not only offers easy access to the city and neighboring suburbs, but to Chicago’s Midway and O’Hare airports as well.
Clocktower Pointe’s on-site sales center and decorated model will be open Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information or to make an appointment to visit Clocktower Pointe, visit http://www.clocktowerpointeresidences.com/index.html or call 708.579.2222.
