Lemont—DONVEN Homes has been honored with four Gold Key Awards for their Woodglen Community in Lemont. The Home Builder’s Association of Greater Chicago (HBAGC) Key Awards are considered one of the Chicago area’s most prestigious honors recognizing excellence in the home-building industry.

The Key Awards recognize excellence in housing design, architecture, interior merchandising, landscaping, landscape architecture and remodeling. The local awards are sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago (HBAGC), and have been recognizing the best in housing design for more than 35 years. Judges review hundreds of entries and rate them on individual criteria in each category.

The Berkshire and Carlyle models at Woodglen were both awarded the top honor of Gold Key for Outstanding Building Design. The Carlyle and Ashton models also won a Gold Key Award and Silver Key Award respectively for Outstanding Architectural Design.

“We are thrilled to have our homes recognized by these prestigious awards,” said Don Stevens, president of DONVEN Homes. “We have always known that to build a truly great home it must be well-constructed using high quality materials, and it must contain an outstanding, well though-out design. It is really an honor to be recognized for these efforts at the high level the Gold Key Award represents.”

Woodglen is truly a rare find, located in an exclusive enclave on the rolling, wooded site of a former 30-acre private estate, featuring carefully designed single-family-style duplex residences. Now, the superior building, wonderful design, and architectural features so many homebuyers have fallen in love with have been officially honored by the HBAGC.

The community features two different single-level ranch floor plans and an additional two-story plan with a first floor master bedroom suite. More than two-thirds of the home sites at Woodglen feature walk-out or look-out full basements which have been carefully planned to fit the rolling terrain. All the homes feature individual private backyards.

Once you visit the three dramatic luxury model homes in this community you will know you have found something special. The homes feature the upscale designer features, exceptional floor plans, and solid construction homebuyers expect from DONVEN Homes.

In honor of the Gold Key Awards bestowed on the Woodglen community, DONVEN Homes wants to make purchasing one of these maintenance-free dream homes as easy as possible. They will work with each buyer’s individual time frame for move-in, while still giving them the chance to lock in today’s special incentive home prices.

“We are very proud of the Woodglen community and have seen that once people come out and look at the models and see the beautiful, wooded setting in this very convenient close in location, they know they have found the perfect home. We will work with homebuyers to lock in today’s prices and arrange their individual move-in within the time frame that best suits them,” added Stevens.

The award-winning WOODGLEN community consists of 90 luxury ranch and two-story duplex residences with over one-third now sold since officially opening one year ago. Homeowners will enjoy the easy lifestyle and cost-effectiveness of maintenance-free living while still enjoying their own private backyard.
