Troy, Illinois, 62294 $286,900
Serenade starts with a parcel of land ideally suited for active-adult living; close-in with great access to all of SW Illinois, on the big-city side of Troy. It's a walk-everywhere place with a long border with Troy's Tri-Township Park, a gate opening directly to the park's own trails and activities. A cleverly disguised 8 acre storm water basin and its 2 acre lake serves double duty as a real nature center. Walgreens is just up on the corner...banks, restaurants and churches nearby...many within walking distance.
The homes themselves enjoy a revolutionary construction system, where walls are built with poured concrete, sandwiched between two thick stay-in-place slabs of styrofoam...all left in place to do their work forever, passively. You can imagine the off-the-chart toughness and durability, the energy conservation and maintenance ease...but concrete needs a pretty face, and stucco and stone provide that. The builder dubs it "The Cozy Fortress!", all at a conventional cost.
