For a limited time, KZF Development is offering the next two buyers a $50,000 discount off the base price of any of the six floor plans at its upscale Meadow Ridge community in Northbrook, with deliveries scheduled for fall of 2013.

According to Shannon Gibson-Giampa of Gibson, Giampa & Partners, Inc., the exclusive marketing agent for the development, building at Meadow Ridge has continued at an ongoing pace with occupancies as early as immediate to late spring.

“Buyers can live in this upscale gated community for as little as $495,000, the base price of our E Residence, which includes 2,236 square feet of living space that can be expanded to 2,521 square feet if needed,” said Gibson-Giampa.

“We have also just broken ground on our A Residence, which is one of the largest homes here at Meadow Ridge with all the bedrooms on the second floor,” she said.

The A Residence features 2,390 square feet of living area that can be expanded to 2,767 square feet. The home includes a first-floor private den/study, dining room and breakfast area. Both of these homes can be delivered by fall of 2013.

Pre-construction prices on the next two buyers’ choice of the six homes will reflect a savings of $50,000, Gibson-Giampa said.

The largest home available is the F Residence, which is available for immediate occupancy. The F Residence boasts 3,688 square feet of living space.

It has a first-floor master bedroom and more than 2,254 square feet of living space on the main level. Priced well below the “to-build” cost at $775,000, this home includes an impressive list of upgrades that is a must see for home shoppers.

Guests are welcomed by a gracious entry foyer and access to the study on the left. Straight ahead is the formal living room which is open to the adjoining dining room.

Through the dining room is the breakfast room and island kitchen is to the right. Both areas open to a great room with vaulted ceiling. An optional fireplace and sliding doors open to the patio from the great room.

The first-floor master-bedroom suite has a large walk-in closet and a private master bath with over-scaled luxurious shower, his and hers sinks and linen closet. The laundry room, a powder room and two more closets complete the first floor.

The upper level offers another 879 square feet of living space, which includes two bedrooms with walk-in closets, a full bath, loft area and a room-sized bonus space.

Meadow Ridge is a gated 164-unit community of attached single-family townhomes and duplexes sequestered on 40 quiet acres at Waukegan and Founders roads in Northbrook.

“Meadow Ridge is a private community targeted to people moving from large single-family homes on the North Shore,” said Suzy Friedman, president of KZF Development, the developer. “Our buyers are looking for a specific maintenance-free lifestyle as well as living in a private gated community.”

Unique features include lavish landscaping, two man-made lakes and active waterways, and a 1.2 mile running/biking path around the community.

The Meadow Ridge residences are being built in 2-unit duplex and 4-unit townhome buildings in the upscale community, which features a guard house and private streets. Base prices range from $495,000 to $895,000.

The two-story duplexes have three bedrooms, 2½ baths and 2,334 to 3,700 square feet of living space. The duplex homes, which come with an unfinished bonus room, feature a private entry, soaring ceilings and a two-car attached garage.

The two-story townhomes are available with two or three bedrooms including a first-floor master suite, 2½ baths and 2,236 to 2,617 square feet of living space. Townhomes feature grand two-story living rooms, 9-foot-high first-floor ceilings and an attached two-car garage.

Community features are a big plus for Meadow Ridge residents. It is about 1.6 miles from a Metra station, and is about a 35-minute drive to the Chicago Loop via Interstate 94 (Interstate 294 also is nearby). Northbrook’s educational options include Glenbrook North High School, Glenbrook South High School, Countryside Montessori Private Elementary and Willowbrook and Maple Elementary and Middle Schools.

Meadow Ridge also is a short drive from the 9-hole Willow Hill Golf Course and the Willow Festival Shopping Center. Just across the street are the Techny Post Office and the Techny Towers.

Other recreational amenities include a 1.2-mile running/biking path around the community, and the nearby Five Seasons Tennis and Country Club.
