Popular Prairie Trail, sister community to Orleans Homebuilders’ Cedar Ridge Estates, is off to a great start with several homes sold as Cedar Ridge Estates winds down. Between the two communities of single-family homes, buyers have wide choices in locations, styles and delivery dates. Located just one mile north of Cedar Ridge Estates, Prairie Trail will include a total of 165 homesites within walking distance of Thompson Elementary School.
“Buyers who are looking for spacious, well-appointed single-family homes in an area of impressive natural beauty have a wealth of choices in these beautiful communities,” says Isa Noe, director of sales and marketing for Orleans Homebuilders. “Large homesites with views of ponds and open green space create an appealing country atmosphere, and the newly released sites at Prairie Trail overlook Grant Woods, a Lake County forest preserve with hundreds of acres of pristine trees, plants and wildlife. Those home shoppers who want to move during the first quarter of 2006 can choose from six homes representing three floor plans that may have deluxe features including brick or stone fronts, full basements with nine-foot ceilings and rough-ins for baths, gourmet kitchens and much more. Incentives are available through our preferred lender.”
Prairie Trail offers seven two-story home designs. The two-story plans range in size from 2,985 to 3,888 square feet, with four to six bedrooms, Two-and-one-half to four baths, study, den or sitting room, partial basements and two- and three-car attached garages. The homes also include such upscale features as nine-foot, first-floor ceilings; oak railings; built-in ovens, cook-tops and dishwashers; ceramic tile in all baths; Euro-height vanities in master baths; brushed nickel lighting fixtures and hardware; 90 percent efficient dual-zoned air conditioning and heating; low E windows; 25-year architectural shingles; three-car garages and front yard landscaping packages to accent the fully sodded homesites.
