Huge crowds turned out at the grand opening of The Villages of Provence just three years ago and their excitement was understandable. Under development on 88 gorgeous acres just blocks from downtown St. Charles, the community was designed to integrate 21st-century homes with the city’s proud French-Canadian heritage, dating back to the mid-1700s.
Since the inaugural celebration, tremendous progress has been made at the site, and early visitors who may have been “just curious” at the time will definitely want to see this neighborhood again. Provence’s main boulevard, North Duchesne Drive, is now completed and beautifully landscaped, connecting West Randolph and the Mel Wetter Parkway. Attractive stone monuments mark the entrances to each village. And confirming the neighborhood’s residential appeal, brand-new homes are going up everywhere!
The crème de la crème
McKelvey Homes has just six homesites remaining in their village, The Manors, which features the largest homesites in Provence. Many are walk-outs, lined by lush woods, and the 11-plan portfolio now includes the “Tuscany” ranch, the newest addition to McKelvey’s Classic Series. Starting from $333,800, this collection as well as the designer collection offers plans ranging from 2,206 to 4,015 square feet, and 3-car garages are standard.
