Meribel in Schaumburg
The Meribel community sits on a 28-acre piece of land which was previously part of Odlum Farm, in Schaumburg. It was built in the mid-1990s by Town & Country Homes. It consists of 276 townhouses and is located west of Barrington Road just north of Schaumburg Road. This community gained a lot of attention at the time and almost 100 homes in the first phase of development were sold even before there were models for prospective buyers to tour.
There are 2 models: Normandy and Savoy. The 1,243 square foot Savoy has 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and the 1,360 square foot Normandy has 2 bedrooms plus a loft and 2.5 bathrooms. Both plans include a private patio, laundry room, attached garages and other amenities.
Town & Country Homes was considered the largest home builder in the Chicago area at the time. They had a reputation for developing in popular locations. The company’s emphasis on quality was recognized when Town & Country Homes were awarded the inaugural National Housing Quality Award by Professional Builder magazine and the National Association of Home Builder’s Research center. During the award presentation the judges cited a documented record of registering more than 2,700 T&C homes with the Homes Owners Warranty Corporation without a single claim as testimony to the company’s quality process. This Oak Brook firm was founded by William G. Ryan in 1958.
Meribel is located near major retailers, restaurants, parks, schools, numerous golf courses, nature preserves and major expressways. It is also relatively close to Woodfield Mall, Goebberts Farm and The Arboretum of South Barrington which is an open-air shopping center filled with a mixture of shops, entertainment, and restaurants.
