Briarwood Lakes is close to everything, yet so close to nature you will feel like you are in a country estate. The proximity to the Oakbrook Shopping Center brings you close to shopping and restaurants. Yet, your first drive through this gated community will sweep you away from the hustle and bustle. You can take a hike along the spacious walking paths, go fishing in the stocked lake and enjoy the birds and the scenery. It is more than a home, it is a lifestyle. This is an adult 55+ active community. The setting inside is just as spectacular. A wrought iron gated entry invites you into a lovely courtyard where double doors open into a large living room and one of the most popular floor plans. You will be impressed with the vaulted dramatic ceiling, fireplace and open floor plan. The dining room offers a lovely wooded view through large and airy windows. The kitchen has an abundance of cabinets and offers the perfect place to entertain. The den/all purpose room will give the space for a home office or hobby room. The second bedroom has it's own bath. The master bedroom has walk in closets and lots of storage space. A finished lower level is great for relaxing or entertaining. The HOA services ice and snow clearing, common area replacement plantings, roadway maintenance, lawn watering, exterior pest and mosquito control, basic cable TV and high speed internet. Enjoy all this and low taxes as well.
