Mayfair was established in the late 1990’s by John Leach of John Leach Homes. John Leach has built homes in the area for a long time, with timeless floor plans in various communities throughout Plainfield and Joliet including, Cumberland, Cumberland South, Longleat and Mayfair.
Famous for the sweat equity down payment, new construction homes became affordable to many buyers through a program that allowed the new homeowner to complete certain projects during the construction process such as priming and painting the walls, as well as staining or painting all of the interior trim. This credit was then used as the down payment, thus making home ownership more affordable for people in the Mayfair subdivision.
Floor plans in Mayfair include popular styles of construction including ranches, tri-levels, quad-levels, raised ranches, and traditional 2 story homes. Known for the generous lot sizes, homes in Mayfair have exceptionally large front and back yards. Because of the flexible building options, there is an array of both attached and detached garages throughout the neighborhood, and even a few homes that do not have garages at all. Basements were included at no additional charge with the builder, so all of the homes in Mayfair have full basements subject to the foundation.
Mayfair is located just off of Caton Farm Rd. between Renwick and County Line Rd’s and is connect by through streets to the Clearwater Springs and Aspen Falls neighborhood to the west.
There is no homeowners association in Mayfair, and homeowners must follow the municipal codes and city ordinances for the City of Joliet. While Mayfair does indeed have a Plainfield mailing address and Plainfield District 202 schools, there is a bit of a gray area regarding the municipalities with the subdivisions in this area. Real estate property taxes are paid to the City of Joliet, therefore residents receive city services such as police, fire and water through Joliet. The nice part about this arrangement though is that residents can take advantage of either park district and receive the resident discount, and use either community library.
