Imagine owning a cool row house overlooking an expansive four-acre civic green in the New Town at St. Charles, a new urbanism development off Hwy. 370 and New Town Boulevard. Whittaker has recently completed a 1984-square foot row house on West Civic Green and for a limited time only, buyers will receive luxury upgrades at no additional cost!

"This row house features beautiful hardwood floors throughout the first floor, 42" cherry cabinets throughout the home and granite countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen," says Greg Whittaker, president of Whittaker Homes. "There's also ceramic tile in the owner's bath and hall bath and upgraded lighting and ceiling fans throughout. Additional features include upgraded carpet and pad, oil-rubbed bronze hardware throughout and a 2 x 4 skylight in the staircase. For a limited time only, all of these luxury upgrades are free of charge in Model 1984 on lot 1316 on West Civic Green. This elegant 1984-square-foot home is $299,000 with all the free upgrades mentioned above!

The Model 1984 is exceptionally spacious with a large living area that flows directly into the gourmet kitchen where buyers will find a convenient center island. The upper level features three bedrooms, including a large owner's retreat with a convenient walk-in closet.

As mentioned, this particular Model 1984 offers an amazing view of a four-acre civic green. "You walk out the front door and have a four-acre professionally-maintained area with a koi pond, custom-designed playground, unbelievable landscaping and more, as your front yard," says Whittaker.

This is an amazing offer on this row house, especially considering that The New Town at St. Charles is one of the most highly desirable places to buy a new home in the entire metro area. In fact, according to a recent report, New Town was the best-selling development out of over 17,000 communities in 16 states! And while many people are under the impression that the wait to get in is lengthy, Whittaker does have a few spec homes in Phase I, such as the Model 1984 above, that are ready for fall move in.

While the way of life is the first reason people buy at New Town (we'll get to that in a second), the architecture and features are close seconds. The homes, simple and classic in design, are built with some of the finest standards in the industry – and not typically found in new construction anywhere else in the area. In fact, the fiber cement CertainTeed Siding, quality Kolbe & Kolbe Windows and AZEK Trim are exclusive to New Town in the metro area and add thousands of dollars of value to your home.

Additional quality standard features at New Town include Tyvek Home Wrap, exposed aggregate driveways, enclosed soffits and fascia, white six-panel doors and trim, 30" wood cabinets, 9' ceilings on the first floor and more.

Now on to the town ... For those that do not know, New Town adheres by new urbanism design principles and standards. It simply goes back in time where small town America is revived. People looking for new construction now have a viable alternative to suburban living, which requires dependency on the car. New Town allows people to walk more and drive less with their daily needs in a town setting. It allows a wide range of demographics and lifestyles to live harmoniously in a small town setting ... and while this may seem like a new building concept, it's quite the opposite. The design principles go back to the way towns used to be built before the 1950's ... before suburban sprawl.

There are already two churches, Marsala's Market, retail stores, a local cafe, Torta Della's Pizza and Rudy's Ribs open in New Town. The first of nearly 40 live work units are expected to close this fall, with more and more businesses opening during the fall and winter 2006. With gas prices on the rise, doesn't walking or biking to daily needs just make sense? And while you will save an enormous amount of money on gas, you're also simplifying life. Mega centers and car rides to the nearest lake give way to a stroll to the market and kayaking on the endless lakes and canals within New Town. And this is only the beginning .... New Town is eventually planned to have four neighborhood centers and a town center.

Think about the entertainment aspect as well. Instead of driving on the weekends, families can enjoy free music festivals and more. Friends can gather at the Prancing Pony Books & Café – recently named one of St. Louis' best outdoor places to dine in St. Louis – for an import beer or glass of wine. "The Prancing Pony offers live music every Thursday night and karaoke every Friday night in the back European-style courtyard," offers Greg Whittaker, developer of The New Town at St. Charles.

Visit the New Town Sales Center and inquire about the Model 1984 on site 1316 with the free luxury upgrades today. There are also five single-family homes, five row houses, an apartment mansion and a lakefront home on display.

Ultimately, this $1.5 billion project will be a thriving town with approximately 5,700 residences in ten phases, with a carefully planned mix of homes in addition to a proposed town center and four neighborhood centers.
