There are many different phases for the Devonshire subdivision, some of them reaching back into the 1950's. To view a copy of the more recent phases, click here

 

While the original start of the Devonshire subdivision was in the 1950's, it is having it's second start in 2014. On November 17th, 2013, a tornado ripped through the heart of Washington and destroyed many homes in the newer sections of the Devonshire Subdivision as well as neighboring Trails Edge Subdivision and Washington Estates. 

Path of the tornado, Nov 2013.

There were over 500 homes destroyed and just about as many damaged in one form or another. The central Illinois community, as well as many communities throughout the state of Illinois, came together with such an outpouring of help and resources that you cannot find anyone anywhere that doesn't believe these affected areas best days are ahead of them. Devonshire was a popular spot before this happened and it certainly will be afterwards. There are many, ourselves included, who feel that the sense of community and of being a helpful neighbor will be the ties that bind this and other subdivisions together moving forward. So while the neighborhood may have started in 1950, we are seeing a rebirth 60 years later that will showcase many new homes being built on the same spot they were built previously. 

Devonshire Subdivision is located on the north side of the town square, south of Route 24. It's a very large subdivision that got it's start in the 1950's with nice entry level homes. There have been added phases over the decades and the homes have continued to grow in size as a result. Before the tornado came through in 2013, there were still new phases being added at that time. Most of the area that was devastated by the tornado took place in the newer sections of the subdivision, while the original sections were safe. 

The original sections of Devonshire have ranch and two story homes priced from $100,000 to $200,000, while the newer sections have homes that are priced into the $400,000 range.
