Grand Reserve is located in Algonquin, Illinois, a pretty town situated roughly
50 miles northwest of Chicago. The
builder at Grand Reserve is Grant Pointe Homes, a
well-known Chicago developer, and this is their
first active adult (age-restricted)
development. This is a smaller
community, with a total of 198 homes, all designed
to be low-maintenance.
There are 84 town homes, 110 duplexes and 44 detached
homes. The town homes are four units to a building and have
two stories. Square footage ranges from 1,470 sq. ft. to 2,310
sq. ft., and each unit has one to two and a half baths, two
bedrooms, a two-car garage and a flex room and/or a loft.
Stone detailing, 9-foot ceilings, decorative trim, columns, covered
entries, sidelights and transom windows add to the distinctiveness
of these residences.
There are four duplex models. The Oxford is a ranch with 1,575 sq.
ft., two bedrooms, two baths, a U-shaped kitchen, a den and a two-car
garage. The Raleigh is a 1,613 sq. ft. ranch with two bedrooms, a den, a
formal dining room and a 2-car garage. A fireplace, entertainment center,
skylights and cathedral ceiling are optional in the great room while the
covered patio can be upgraded to an optional screened-in
porch. The Quincy is a two-story residence with 2,029 sq.
ft., two bedrooms, two and a half baths, a loft and a first floor
laundry. All come with sodded lawns, laminate countertops, oak
cabinetry, vinyl siding and a private patio.
The single-family homes come in six designs. Square footage ranges
from 1,725 to 2,059, and homes have one to two stories, two to three bedrooms,
an attached 2-car garage, a great room, 9-foot ceilings, large walk-in closets,
a laundry room and sodded lawns. Exteriors are maintenance-free
Grand Reserve does not have any amenities in and of itself, but it is
located within close proximity of six golf courses, including the Golf Club of
Illinois, Terrace Hill Golf Course and Boulder Ridge Country Club, and abuts
the lush 100-acre Ted Spella Park. A walking path winds through the
community and around the property's wetlands, connecting the single-family
homes, manor homes, and duplexes.
Algonquin is nestled along the Fox River, has a pleasant hometown feel and
is hilly and wooded. The Old Town neighborhood is the original village
and has older, established neighborhoods; new developments and
subdivisions to the west are popping up (this is where Grand Reserve is
located) as Algonquin is experiencing growth. It is a safe spot, with a
crime rate well below the national average.
Summers are hot and humid; daily temperatures reach into the 90s F., and the
area receives three to four inches of precipitation a month. During the
winter, temperatures dip into the teens and 20s F; seven to ten inches of snow
per month are not unusual from December through March.
