Sun City Huntley by Del Webb: The Largest Active Adult Community in Illinois

Sun City Huntley by Del WebbDel Webb opened the very first Midwestern active adult community in 1998. The small country town of Huntley, Illinois would soon become home to thousands of new residents and become well known as the retirement destination of the Midwest. The community was designed with luxury in mind with hundreds of resort-style amenities, pristine landscaping and finely crafted homes.

Arguably the most amazing thing about Sun City Huntley by Del Webb is the collection of amenities. From the 94,000 square foot Prairie Lodge with its own award winning restaurant to the fully equipped woodworking shop, there is something for everyone at this phenomenal Illinois active adult community. The hub of activity is centered around the gorgeous Prairie Lodge. It’s home to a state-of-the-art fitness center, aerobics & dance studios, an amazing indoor swimming pool set below a 2nd story indoor walking track, a pottery center with an on-site kiln, sewing center, arts & crafts rooms, hobby & game rooms, a relaxing library and a business center. There is also a grand ballroom with a performance stage and a gorgeous lobby space with oversized chairs and windows looking out to the 18-hole Whisper Creek golf course. Whisper Creek was designed by Billy Casper and Greg Nash. The prairie style course features impeccably manicured fairways and water play on over half of the holes providing scenic beauty and a challenge for all skill levels.

Amenities of this amazing IL retirement community continue just outside the doors of the lodge. There are 8 tennis courts (3 lighted and 1 stadium style), 6 bocce ball courts and 4 horseshoe courts and even a sand volleyball court. Residents also enjoy a 19-acre fishing lake surrounded by the several hundred acre Wildflower Park. In addition to all this there is yet another lodge, The MeadowView Lodge. This 20,000 square foot facility is home to another fitness center, several aerobics rooms, meeting rooms and a second outdoor swimming pool.

With a line-up of amenities as grand as this residents always have something to do. As much or as little as they want! A full-time Lifestyle Director ensures the event calendar is packed full every single month. Every month Sun City Huntley residents pour over the community newsletter, which is more like a magazine, perusing over all the special events, group meetings and community news. There are over 80 different clubs and interest groups catering to nearly every imaginable interest.

Today home shoppers can choose from a nice selection of resale homes or select one of Del Webb’s 10 floor plans and build a brand new home. New homes are priced from the mid $100’s to high $500’s.
