We've attempted to bring you a truly extraordinary package of features, in support of the best in active-senior lifestyles....so that's what really IS for sale.  It starts with an exceptional parcel of land, close-in with great access to all of southwestern Illinois, with a long border with Troy's Tri-Township Park.  It's an ideal spot from which to walk everywhere.  That includes the park itself, with a gate directly connecting with their trails.  And it includes the 8 acre "Village Green" with a 2 acre lake, (cleverly disguised as a Master Storm Water Detention Basin), as well as the nearby business community.  Walgreens is just up on the corner.

But the homes themselves enjoy a revolutionary construction system, where walls really are built with poured concrete, sandwiched between two thick slabs of styrofoam....all left in place to do their work forever...passively.  It's practically indestructable, resisting wind, fire and even earthquake, and conserves energy costs like a dream.  It creates a retreat that's both tough and cozy, with the prettiest facade we could dream up.  Concrete walls were indeed patented almost a century ago by Thomas Edison, but he didn't have styrofoam stay-in-place forms to conserve energy forever. (We have an article about it in the Reference Section). 

And of course, we'll have not only easy-keeper homes, but arrangements for others to do the heavy lifting of lawn care and the like...so you won't need rakes, wheelbarrows, ladders and lots of other things.  There will be extensive opportunities for walking and even biking, (it lies along a near-future bike trail); plus some flower gardening, and even, a vegetable patch (on The Village Green), but "fun-work", not "drudge-work"....optional, not duty!

And we've even considered re-sale value, whenever that is in the future.  Everyone wants to invest wisely, and these homes should be among the top performers there, too, as we'll show.

Please register, with our pledge not to hustle...so that we can keep you up to date with our progress. Suggestions intended to make this web site better are always welcome.
