EVERGREEN SUBDIVISION on the far North side of Hoffman Estates is home to 191 families enjoying the location. Built 23 years ago by Kennedy Builders, Evergreen has proved to be one of the most popular neighborhoods in the Hoffman Estates and Barrington areas. As you enter Evergreen from Palatine Road or Bradwell Road, stone monuments welcome you. The community offers it’s residents a private spring fed 5 acre lake that is a favorite of local fishermen with it’s abundance of Small Mouth Bass and other fish.
Residents enjoy the location for it’s more rural feel away from the high traffic conjestion of other nearby towns yet Evergreen is only a 5 minute drive to Grocery and convenience shopping, 12 minutes to the Palatine Metra station and close to several area parks. This area is served by the popular school district 211 and the award winning Fremd high school. Evergreen is home to families of all ages…..young children thru retirees.
There were 7 initial home floor plans offered with customization encouraged. Homes vary from 2,200 Square feet to over 3,300 square feet. The community borders a Nature area and the village of Inverness on two sides. Lot sizes vary from 1/4 acre, 1/2 acre up to 1 acre and 10 homesites offer walk-out basements.
Many of the initial residents have moved up from smaller floorplans to the larger homes as they have become available thru the years. This community is very popular and the turn over of residents is much lower than average. Rather than move, many residents have expanded their homes and most residents have recently remodled their homes to update the kitchen and bathroom areas. Pride of ownership shows with homeowners paying special attention to landscaping, decks and patios.
The December holiday season is well noted by a community of residents that enjoy lighting their homes in celebration of Christmas. An all-day annual Fishing Derby and picnic is a favorite summer activity each year. Evergreen has it’s own Dinner Club and Bunko clubs. Residents are very social and enjoy all that evergreen has to offer.
The adjacent Juniper Park with it’s playground, baseball field and a soccer field are popular summer stops and the locals have discovered a great sledding/boarding hill right inside of the subdivision’s boundaries.
