Apart­ments have in-unit washer and dryer, pa­tios or bal­conies, walk-in clos­ets, gourmet kitchens, lux­ury baths and wall-to-wall car­pet­ing. Each home of­fers a work sta­tion (a small com­puter nook) with six-line tele­phone out­lets and ac­com­mo­da­tions for high- speed In­ter­net ac­cess. In­di­vid­ual garage spa­ces with re­mote con­trolled open­ers are also avail­able.

Find­ing a large apart­ment was also im­por­tant to Smith and Kid­die. One-bed­room apart­ments at Coven­try Glen have from 710 to 782 square feet of space and 2-bed­rooms have 1,100 to 1,200 square feet of space.

“This is my first time liv­ing with my boyfriend and I wanted enough space for us and the pets. Our apart­ment is very large,” Smith said.

“I also like our apart­ment be­cause even though we’re on the sec­ond floor, we have a pri­vate en­trance from the ground floor,” she said. “We also have a cor­ner unit and we have views of a for­est area and the de­vel­op­ment.”

Renters at Coven­try Glen also en­joy ameni­ties such as: heated, out­door pool; sun­deck with gas grills and a fit­ness cen­ter (use in­cluded in the rent). Other ameni­ties in­clude a club­house, cy­ber cafe and busi­ness cen­ter with com­put­ers, fax ma­chine and copier.

“The busi­ness cen­ter is won­der­ful and so use­ful,” Smith said. “Be­ing a nurs­ing stu­dent, I have to print out syl­labuses for classes. As a nurs­ing as­sis­tant, I have to fax in timesheets, so I use the busi­ness cen­ter all the time.”

Chris­tine Knee­land, prop­erty man­ager for RMK, the man­age­ment com­pany, says lo­ca­tion is one of the best fea­tures of Coven­try Glen.

“We’re not lo­cated in a high traf­fic area like Gurnee or Ver­non Hills,” she said “The com­plex is off the main road and it’s quiet and beau­ti­ful here.”
