We have lived in Dover Pointe, Chadwick, Bennington Park, Trail View, and Sommer Place. We have built in Dover Pointe, Chadwick Place, Chadwick Estates, Trail View, Northbrook, Timberbrook, Sommer Place, Hunters Trail, and Northtrail Meadows. We have sold homes in every subdivision in Dunlap, so can offer a perspective no one else can.
One common misconception is that if a home is in the Dunlap School District, then it resides in the city of Dunlap. In actuality nearly 80% of the new homes in the Dunlap School District are actually within the city of Peoria and may have a Peoria, Dunlap, or Edwards mailing address. The tax rate for all of the Dunlap homes that are in the city of Peoria are pretty much the same, or at least very close. The subdivisions that are actually in the town of Dunlap, and not the city of Peoria, such as Nettle Creek, Deerfield, and Copperfield, do have a different, and yes, lower tax rate. All of the subdivisions listed belong in the Dunlap School District. Click here for school information!
New subdivisions near the Shoppes at Grand Prairie Mall
Timberbrook, Waterstone, Wyndridge, and the Villas at Waterstone are located near the Shoppes at Grand Prairie Mall to the north of Route 150 off of Trigger Rd, while Chadwick Estates, Chadwick Place, Sommer Place, and Fieldstone Estates are near the mall as well, only to the south of War Memorial.
Chadwick Place and Chadwick Estates are two very popular subdivisions. These subdivisions typically have homes starting around the $400K range and go up from there. It's located just south of War Memorial / Route 150 off of Koerner Rd. There are many wooded lots around the sides of the subdivisions while some of the homes back up to the Polo fields of Weavers Farm! The size of the homes starts around 2,800 square feet and the covenants call for a generous amount of brick on the exterior. Chadwick Place is pretty much complete with Chadwick Estates offering plenty of new constructions to choose from. The popularity of this subdivision can be described best by how quickly the Estates section sold out of lots. With the number of lots that would normally dictate the subdivision being done in multiple phases-nearly 80% of the lots sold out prior to the roads ever being put in place. As such, all of the infrastructure was put in place at the same time rather than in sections. Chadwick has a Peoria mailing address, is in the city of Peoria, and the Dunlap School District. It is located one mile from the Shoppes at Grand Prairie and interstate access. As such, it is only 10 minutes from downtown Peoria. We not only work in this neighborhood-we also call it home! We have lived here for a few years and love the easy access to downtown, dining, entertainment, and shopping. It's also only 1/4 mile away from Sommer Place Park-which offers a number of park district activities year round! For the Chadwick Place Subdivision website, CLICK HERE!

This is a large scale development with many homes to choose from. If you'd like to see any of the homes here, simply give me a call and I'd be happy to arrange it! One really nice feature of this subdivision is a public year round park in the back section, as well as a much larger public park. The public park is open to special events throughout the year and is attached to the southern edge of the subdivision. The park has some of the best jogging/biking trails around, as well as a baseball diamond, soccer field, tennis courts, playground, picnic area, fishing pond, and even a skateboard park. Sommer Place has an Edwards mailing address, but is in the city of Peoria, and the Dunlap School District. The elementary and middle schools are Ridgeview Elementary and Dunlap Valley Middle School.
