In an effort to bring life back into Creekside Crossing in Plainfield, Meadowbrook Homes has secured an opportunity to start building attractive single-family homes here that will start at $222,900.

With prices for these new homes being thousands of dollars less than those offered by the previous builder, Meadowbrook Homes believes its high-quality homes filled with high-end amenities like granite countertops, hardwood flooring and basements will be very attractive to today’s value conscious homebuyers.

Starting immediately, Meadowbrook Homes will offer nine different two-story homes, planning to offer homes in the range of 2,220 to 3,205 square-feet and be priced from $222,900 to $299,900.

“We will not offer the floor plans that were originally constructed in Creekside Crossing. We will introduce our own floor plans and designs that will be as attractive and of equal or better quality,” said Vice President of Meadowbrook Homes, Aladdin Nassar. “These new homes of our own design will contain a high level of standard luxury inclusions like granite counter tops, basements, and hardwood flooring, but our pricing will be significantly lower, so that more people will be able to afford to move into this great community.”

Meadowbrook is in the process of deciding which of the homes in its extensive portfolio it will build in the community to act as the decorated model/sales center. More information about model selection will be announced as soon as a decision has been made.

Families currently living in Creekside Crossing should take comfort in the fact that Meadowbrook Homes has a good reputation and is currently building and selling customizable single-family homes in Minooka at a very strong pace. Last month alone, the builder sold nine homes, and during the first half of 2012 they signed contracts for 33 high-quality ranch and two- story homes.

“I know, coming into a new community, that we have a lot to prove to the families already living there. But I want them to know we have 30 years of experience that we will be bringing into Creekside Crossing and we have plans to build great new homes there that families can afford and be proud of,” said Aladdin.

Creekside Crossing is located on the west side of Plainfield and south of Route 126 (West Lockport Street) along Drauden Road. Interested parties should take Route 59 to Route 126 and head west two miles until they see Drauden Road. Then head south on Drauden and begin looking for West Renwick Road, and then signage about the community. Large ¼-acre lots allow homes to be built with optional three-car garages, and many of the lots are adjacent to the Mather Woods Forest Preserve or Creekside North Park.

Meadowbrook Homes offers homes filled with high-end amenities that some other builders charge as upgrades or extras. For example, homes will include in base prices partial basements, ceramic floor tile in bathrooms, granite countertops in the kitchens and bathrooms, hardwood flooring (in kitchens and dining areas), sodded yards and roofs with architectural grade shingles with 30-year warranties. All homes are also highly 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. Homes can be expanded, additional volume ceilings can be incorporated, and interior and exterior walls can be relocated.

Plainfield is located just west of Interstate 55 and close to I-80, I-55 and the 355 Tollway. Creekside Crossing Estates students attend Consolidated School District 202 and Plainfield North High School, including Lincoln Elementary, Central Elementary, Ira Jones Middle School and Drauden Pointe Middle School.
