Regency at The Woods of South Barrington Reviews (13)
We have lived here for almost three years, and we are very happy we made the decision. We love our home and the fact that we can walk to the Arboretum for shopping and restaurants, but most of all we love the people who live here!
We are very comfortable in our home. We have a look-out basement that works well for us. We were able to build a sunroom on our elevated deck and the basement with its windows is great for hobbies and entertaining.
Like I said to my neighbors in one of the restaurants in the Arboretum shopping center (within walking distance of the Regency) at the Social Committee sponsored Happy Hour Get Together last night, it sure is nice to live in a place where new friends and acquaintances are easy to come by!
The construction process was explained thoroughly and there were no surprises.
The builder was easy to work with
We love the lifestyle and our new neighbors and friends. Love living near the Conservancy so we have lovely green space and avian life.. Retirement is great at Regency
Toll Brothers has an open door policy at the sales office. Any concern or question they are most helpful.
Make the move to the Regency and join a caring community.
We have an active social program that gets everybody together in the clubhouse. Our location is ideal, within walking distance to a number of quality restaurants and shopping. Also, attractive is our location to I-90 which connects us to the city, airport and north south highways.
The house itself is just the right size for us and is well insulated and modern. Overall the community and accommodations make the Regency the ideal place to live.
Then, a miracle occurred! My wife and I stumbled upon Regency at the Woods of South Barrington and immediately fell in love with it. And the more we learned, the more in love we became.
It's now been a short few months since we moved in, and I have to say, it's even better than we thought. We knew the walkable shopping and restaurants were there (with great Happy Hours), but the camaraderie (with both the other residents and members of the Toll Brothers team), budding friendships and long list of things to do were way more than we ever could have imagined.
My wife and I have a beautiful house, a warm home, and even more important, a new life. Come join us!
Once we made the decision to build in Regency, Toll Brothers accommodated our requests and kept us involved every step of the way. Once the sale was complete and closing done it is not the end of the relationship with Toll. The sales office door is always open for a friendly conversation. Any construction issues are taken of in a timely manner by the construction office.
We are very pleased with our decision and happy with our new lifestyle. It is a welcoming community and in a short period of time we have made great friends.
The community itself is just the right size. The homeowners are engaged and welcoming and yet very independent. Since we are both still working and have large extended families, the location was very important to us. We feel we are far enough removed to enjoy the open feeling of the area and yet still close enough to feel connected. The clubhouse with the pool and fitness center is great and the walking paths are just beautiful. There is great shopping and restaurants nearby, so we never feel out of touch.
We could not be more pleased with how this move has turned out for us!
Living within a reasonable distance from our children and grandchildren was very important to us and this factored heavily in our location choice. When we first heard about Toll Brothers developing an Active Adult community in South Barrington, we researched all we could about the development. Toll Brothers of course has a long history of building quality homes and the elevation, floor plan and general amenities were what we wanted. Other deciding factors was the accessibility to Interstate 90 to get downtown in 40 minutes (non-rush hour), shopping at the Arboretum and Woodfield, and proximity to many suburban cultural and entertainment venues. Given this economy, we are also seeing that our property value is holding well for the area as we anticipated.
Although we already had a busy and varied social life, we have been delighted to find that one of the unexpected pleasures of living at the Regency is the many new friendships we have developed. There is a sense of family here, where everyone keeps an eye out for their friends and neighbors and a dedication to including new home owners into our activities and social circles.
All in all, we are very pleased with our decision to live at the Regency.
