SHOREWOOD, Ill., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NVR, Inc. (NYSE: NVR), one of the nation's largest homebuilding and mortgage banking companies, announces a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the new Shorewood Towne Center single-family home community in Shorewood, Illinois. The mayor will officiate at the ceremony, which will take place on Friday, September 27, at 11:30 am, at the Rome model. Built by NVR's Ryan Homes division, Shorewood Towne Center is a planned community located in the acclaimed Minooka School District. Homes at Shorewood Towne Center are priced from the mid $200's. Shorewood Towne Center is a charming neighborhood of luxurious single-family homes accessible via a lovely river-walk bridge. Shorewood was created as a pedestrian-friendly development of residential and retail areas with breathtaking landscape views. The community is filled with amenities for an enjoyable lifestyle. To enter Shorewood Towne Center, residents cross the bridge leading to Towne Center Boulevard. This landscaped thoroughfare leads to Towne Center Park in the heart of the neighborhood, featuring an inviting gazebo amphitheater within a short walk of the homes. The park is the site of regularly scheduled concerts, art fairs and performances. This appealing space is also the venue for farmers markets and a variety of community functions. Newly constructed civic buildings are also on site, and a new community library is in the works. Residents will find shopping and dining a short stroll across the bridge, and commuters will have the benefit of I-55 and I-80 within easy reach. The Rome model blends traditional architectural features with an open layout design. A covered entry leads to the formal living room and dining room. The well-equipped kitchen features a full pantry, plenty of counter space, a dinette and an optional center island. For more living space, a sunny morning room may be added. The kitchen opens up to the spacious family room, which may be outfitted with an optional fireplace. A home office is tucked away off the family room. A stairway near the powder room leads to the upper level where residents will find four spacious bedrooms and a dramatic loft. The opulent 23-foot owner's suite is a true retreat and features an optional tray ceiling, a sitting area and two walk-in closets. The owner's bath may be enhanced with a separate soaking tub and a dual vanity. A fifth bedroom may be added on this level in place of the loft. Below the main level, the lower level may be finished with an exercise room and media room. Conveniences like an upper level laundry room and a mud room with garage access on the main level enhance the Rome model.
