Newer Homes and New Construction in Sawgrass Community

Real Estate Agent with Beringer Realty

Sawgrass is a newer subdivision in west Champaign. Sunday I hosted an open house there, and had an excellent turnout indicating a great interest in this type of home and neighborhood. If you're looking for a spacious home with modern amenities, an open layout, and in a more suburban location, then Sawgrass might just be for you.

This community is located east of Staley Rd. and south of Bradley Ave. While the interstate is visible from the backyards of a few homes, other homes have views of wide open spaces, and most homes simply have views of the other homes and the streets in the subdivision. The area is quite lovely.

Like many newer subdivisions in Champaign, Sawgrass boasts a neighborhood park and a man-made pond encircled by a walking trail. Well-kept sidewalks line both sides of the streets.

These homes are built on basements, and many of them are partially finished, some with an additional bedroom and/or bath.

Homeowner Association fees are typically around $120/year.

The Statistics:

Currently there are 28 homes on the market in Sawgrass, and 11 of these are new construction.

Prices generally range from $150,000 to $320,000. On the lower end, you have 1200-1800 zerolot adjoining homes, and in the mid to higher range, you have single-family homes usually well over 2,000 sq. ft.
