Located off High Lake Road a few blocks west of Winfield Road, Shelburne Crossing is near the Illinois Prairie Path and within walking distance of downtown Winfield and its Metra train station.
Downtown Winfield offers several popular restaurants, the post office, library and shopping. A pretty park and veterans memorial, Creekside Park, sits south of the Metra station about a block from village hall.
"Shelburne Crossing continues to be one of the most desired new home communities in the area, and we are excited about our new model," said Cheryl Bonk, vice president of sales and marketing for M/I Homes' Chicago division.
"This opening kicks off sales in the final phase of homes in the community. With the limited availability, we expect sales to remain brisk. Those considering a new M/I home purchase should visit Shelburne Crossings' new Diversey model to take advantage of the best home plan and site selections."
The Diversey model is priced from $239,990 and features 1,858 square feet with two bedrooms, two baths, spacious lower level and two-car garage.
This open floor plan features a transitional interior with contemporary touches and hardwood oak floors with a distressed look.
The kitchen, breakfast area and great room combine for one large gathering space. A taupe sofa and two upholstered chairs provide seating around the fireplace with marble surround. A multicolored rug adds texture and interest.
The kitchen sparkles with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and furniture-quality cabinetry, while mosaic tiles create a decorative backsplash. The space includes a breakfast bar and pantry. The sink overlooks the great room for ease of conversation with family and friends.
A glass-topped table with upholstered chairs occupies the breakfast area along with a credenza with wine rack. This space accesses the deck.
Topped with a volume ceiling, the master suite features a patterned bed cover, chandelier, stunning white sheers that reach to the ceiling, and a walk-in closet. The private bath features dual European-height sinks, a tub, walk-in shower, decorative bath accessories and a second walk-in closet.
