EDWARDSVILLE – Following approval by the Edwardsville City Council, Infinity Land Group plans to begin construction on a new 42-home development in the central part of Edwardsville just off Governors’ Parkway at Esic Drive and Cloverdale.
The development, called @Cloverdale, is designed for “simplified living,” featuring open floor plan designs including single-story, main-floor master and traditional two-story homes with standard features sought by many of today’s buyers. It will be constructed along a planned extension of Cloverdale, from its intersection with Esic Drive, which now dead-ends, east to Cloverdale’s current intersection with Meadow Lane.
An area home builder, Spencer Homes, will be in charge of construction, with groundbreaking anticipated in July. Mike Rathgeb of Spencer Homes, is a partner in the development with Kathy Long. Long is also the president of the Stillwater Senior Living complex, which opened recently in Edwardsville.
The single-family homes will offer options of two-, three- or four-bedroom floor plans and all feature a “luxurious” master suite, Infinity Land Group says.
Several plans provide a flex room appropriate for a home office, hobby room, or guest accommodations. All home plans and building sites offer oversize, two-car garages while many allow for a full, three-car garage.
Simplified living refers, in part, to lawn care and landscape maintenance services being offered through the Homeowner’s Association. It also refers to the recreational aspect built into the development, including a one-acre park-like area dedicated for families to enjoy time outdoors.
“@Cloverdale is centrally located and connected to the heart of the Edwardsville community at the Madison County Trail system, adjacent to Leclaire Christian Church, Esic YMCA, schools, movie theater, shopping, restaurants and community parks,” said Rathgeb. “The development is also only a short walk to downtown for a morning at the farmers’ market and conversation at the coffee shop.”
Homes will be offered from the $290s. A primary feature of a @Cloverdale home design is the front porch, which functions as an extension of the home, and a place for people to gather.
“The secret to the comfort of @Cloverdale homes is the floor-plan design. Each home is planned for the way you live your life. It’s the small, subtle touches that add that good feeling to your home. Each home is designed with careful attention to detail, including nooks and built-ins,” Rathgeb said.
