Town Homes and Single Family Homes are for Sale in New Country Club's 55+ Gated Neighborhood

Located approximately 30 miles northwest of Chicago, Illinois, Elgin is home to Bowes Creek Country Club, a development built by Toll Brothers.  This community features single family homes and town homes for all ages, but it also has a separate, gated neighborhood with single family homes and town homes (named the Active Adult Collection) for those age 55+.   Bowes Creek is well planned across 616 acres, and golf is the focus here, with all residents enjoying the 18-hole, 6,900-yard course, a stretch of green designed to be fun for players of all skill levels.   Residents in the 55+ section, however, have a clubhouse all to themselves.  




The town homes for sale in the "adult" section come in three floor plans and have two baths and two bedrooms, although square footage ranges from 1,686 sq. ft. to 1,989 sq. ft.  All homes are built on one level and have an attached 2-car garage.   Oversized closets, dual bathroom vanities and a formal dining room are standard.  There are three residences in each building and the middle one is the least expensive).

Buyers find a bit more variety in Bowes Creek's active adult single family homes.  There are nine floor plans, with square footage starting at 1,690 sq. ft. and reaching 2,590 sq. ft.   Five models have two baths and two bedrooms, and four of them have three bedrooms and three baths.   A great room, formal dining room and a Roman soaking bathroom tub are standard features.  The three bedroom residences also boast a second story, and all homes have an attached 2-car garage.  Visit www.bowescreekcountryclub.com for more information.


The private clubhouse has an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, a fitness center, a library and bocce courts.   A creek babbles through the property grounds; a full time activities director ensures that everyone stays busy and walking trails throughout the development make getting outside for a stroll easy to do.  

The true highlight of the community, though, is the Rick Jacobson-designed golf course.  This patch of green rolls across rolling farmland, prairie, wetlands and flat flood areas and is designed to be in harmony with the surrounding land.   Distances stretch from 5,000 yards for the junior golfer to nearly 7,000 yards for the pro golfer, and there is a putting and chipping area and an elevated driving range as well.   Those age 62+ receive discounts on daily rates.

Elgin is a bedroom community of Chicago and has a median household income that meets or slightly exceeds the U.S. average.  The cost of living just meets the national average, and it is racially diverse.    Crime meets the national average.  

Summers are hot and humid, with temperatures reaching into the 90s.   Precipitation averages two to five inches per month, and during winter months, a foot of snow can fall each month.
