RE: A Set of Keys, a Couple Suitcases and You’re Home!
Model homes are rare opportunities for anyone who is just starting out, starting over, or wants a
home that is fully decorated. And now, as Bigelow Homes introduces six new models in its newest
HomeTown Reserves neighborhood, the HomeTown Aurora models are finally for sale.
Buyers will get the furniture at an 80 percent to 90 percent discount over buying it new and can
expect a lot of extras and upgrades such as upgraded appliances, wall décor, custom paint, decorative
moldings, custom window treatments, walkways, and fully mature landscaping.
Since the first day award-winning Eleni Interiors decorated these homes, they have been
immaculately maintained inside and out. They are across from Holiday Park and the HomeTown Cafe and
come with the proven track record of seasoned construction.
There are 4 single-family models to choose from. Prices range from $184,819 to $212,825.
The two-bedroom-plus-loft to three-bedroom, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 bath homes with 1,168 to 1,428 square
feet, all have attached garages. They are smartly planned inside and out and feature front porches, large
eat-in kitchens, high-quality oak kitchen cabinets and laminate countertops, built-in kitchen pantries,
General Electric kitchen appliances, king-sized bathroom mirrors and cultured marble vanities, and luxury
carpets with 7-year stain resistant warranties.
Award-winning, environmentally friendly HomeTown Aurora includes small neighborhood features
such as classic American architecture, large, inviting front porches; white picket fences; big bay windows;
six-foot wide sidewalks that accommodate side-by-side strollers; living courts; private cul-de-sacs; streets
designed to keep traffic under 15 mph; and inviting destinations. In addition, there is a daycare center on
the premises and an elementary school close by.
Bigelow Homes includes a three-year $400 heating guarantee with all of the models. This means that
if buyers’ heating bills exceed $400 per year in any of the first three years, the developer will pay the
HomeTown Aurora has its own community life director that plans and oversees traditions such as

landscaping industry, and an abundance of managed open space.
HomeTown Aurora is within three miles of the Westfield Fox Valley Shopping Center, Oakhurst
Forest Preserve, Phillips Park Golf Course, Phillips Park Zoo, and the Eola Community Center, which
includes a public library. The East-West Tollway and public transportation are 10 minutes or less away.
To get to the community, take Route 59 to Ogden Avenue, west to Montgomery Road, then north
The models are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and from noon to 6 p.m. on Fridays. No
appointment is necessary.
