Kelley Glen – A Traditional Neighborhood – Normal, IL


New Single Family and Duplex Homes Starting In The $180’s!

What is a traditional neighborhood? The concept of a traditional neighborhood emphasizes the development of neighborhoods with people-friendly features which restore a sense of community that has been lost with the advent of housing tracts designed to accommodate automobiles. These neighborhoods often contain houses built on a grid pattern with alley-access garages, sidewalks, community green space and pedestrian access to schools, parks, etc. It is becoming one of the most promising trends in neighborhood development because it encourages and enables people to connect with others in a vibrant neighborhood setting.

Kelley Glen fits the description of a traditional neighborhood perfectly by providing the following:

  • Traditional Neighborhood Layout
  • Green Space cared for by the Normal Parks & Recreation Department
  • Pedestrian access to Prairieland Elementary School
  • Pedestrian access to Little Jewel’s Learning Center
  • Pedestrian access to the Constitution Trail/Carden Public Park/Bicycle Safety Town
  • Pedestrian access to the Bloomington/Normal city bus line
  • Convenient to shopping/movies/churches/Uptown Normal
  • Easy access to the Interstate

All plans have been carefully designed not only to work within a traditional neighborhood layout but, even more importantly, to function for the way you really live. All of the wasted space so common in today’s ‘big box’ houses has been ‘designed out’ of these homes resulting in extremely efficient, comfortable homes requiring minimal maintenance. The designs are fresh, exciting and incorporate the latest trends and styles. The plans are also trans-generational and work well for any stage you may be at in life. Although economizing on square footage, The Shannon and The Kelley boast amenities and finishes not typically seen in homes of this size and in this price point. Below are just a few of the amenities you’ll enjoy within the base price:
