Strong sales of 54 homes over the past 18 months gave the company the confidence it needed to build a brand new decorated model, according to Alladin Nassar, vice president of Meadowbrook Homes.
This new two-story model in Arbor Lakes in Minooka and is served by Minooka School District 201 and Minooka Community High School.
Within Arbor Lakes, Meadowbrook offers 18 single-family floor plans that provide 1,620 to more than 3,105 square feet of luxurious living space, and are priced from $169,900 to $229,900.
“We believe that pricing our homes $70,000 less than we did back in 2006, and filling them with standard features like granite countertops and partial basements, are the reasons families are making us the most successful builder in Minooka,” said Nassar. “The final item that pushes us over the top is the $10,000 cash rebate each of our customers receives at closing.”
Arbor Lake’s landscaped entry marker is on the west side of Ridge Road, approximately
1½ miles south of Interstate 80 or a mile north of Route 6, and approximately five minutes from Interstate 55.
Large ¼-acre lots allow homes to be built with three-car garages, and many of the lots are adjacent to the community’s two lakes that are stocked with fish.
Meadowbrook Homes offers affordable homes that are filled with high-end amenities that some other builders charge as upgrades or extras. For example, Arbor Lakes homes include in the base prices such amenities as partial basements, ceramic floor tile in bathrooms, granite countertops in the kitchens, hardwood flooring (in kitchens and dining areas), sodded yards, and roofs with architectural grade shingles with 30-year warranties. All homes are also energy efficient, which means utility bills will be lower and less energy wasted each year.
Meadowbrook also offers homebuyers the opportunity to customize any available floor plan. No alteration is too complex. Homes can be expanded, additional volume ceilings can be incorporated, and interior and exterior walls can be relocated.
The 2,405 square-foot decorated Oakwood model furthers the standard for excellence in craftsmanship at Arbor Lakes. The home on Lot 208, 1033 Redwood Lane, has been transformed into an elegant and stately residence. The two story home, with four bedrooms, loft and 2½ half baths is base-priced at $204,900, but with Minooka’s economic incentive rebate of $10,000 at closing the home, is now $194,900 for a limited time.
The masterful touches incorporated into this home show upon entry. Rich hardwood oak floors extend a warm greeting in the openness of the two-story foyer. Visitors will see an elegant living room adjacent to the foyer. The stately charm of hardwood floors extends from the foyer and into the kitchen and dining room areas, which is a study in form and function. The kitchen features the a center working/service island, with overhang for breakfast stools, and furniture-quality custom Maple cabinets that provide abundant storage. The dining room flows uninterrupted into the home’s optional four-season room, with it expanse of windows.
Whether providing architectural charm in the summer or glowing heat during the region’s brisk winter months, the family room’s optional fireplace with gas log lighter and custom mantel will definitely be the major focal point of this room.
The upstairs living quarters is highlighted by the master bedroom suite with a multi-level tray ceiling (optional) and a walk-in closet with ample room for his-and-hers wardrobes. The optional luxury master bath features a double-bowl vanity and a private showe, and for special occasions a relaxing a whirlpool tub surrounded by ceramic tile.
