A new ranch plan is debuting at Bailey Estates, a semi-custom single-family home community by Gerstad Builders in Williams Bay, Wis.

The 1,740 square-foot Bay View ranch is priced at $214,900, including such desirable amenities as a full English basement, central air conditioning, hardwood flooring and GE stainless steel appliances (gas range, microwave range hood and dishwasher).

Set on a large ½-acre homesite, the home represents the sixth ranch plan available within the mid-priced community. The new Bay View plan was designed to be attractive to a wide range of homeowner lifestyles. For those with growing families, the third bedroom and third bathroom are an absolute must. For empty-nesters, the floor plan eliminates the need to climb stairs and the dinette at the front of the home is immediately adjacent to the ergonomically efficient kitchen.

Designed to reflect traditional exterior architecture, the home features an attractive side-load two-car garage, steeply raked rooflines and decorative brick (per plan). Because of clever architectural details like a cathedral ceiling in the great room, eight-foot ceilings in all other rooms and the elimination of unnecessary walls between the kitchen and great room, the feeling of spaciousness is emphasized significantly.

A luxurious master suite completely occupies one side of the home for maximum privacy and is finished with a ceramic tiled shower stall, oversized soaking tub with ceramic tile deck, dual clothes closets and dual bath vanities.

Bailey Estates offers a variety of ranch and two-story homes that typically feature vaulted ceilings, 9-foot first-floor ceilings, three to five bedrooms, two to three baths, living room, formal dining room, family room, professionally designed kitchen with 42-inch upper cabinets, breakfast area, basement and an attached two-car garage. These homes provide 1,740 to 3,177 square feet of living space that are base priced from $214,990 to $284,990.

Gerstad Builders also offers an extensive variety of options, includng skylights, three-car garages (per plan), wood-burning fireplaces, additional volume ceilings, custom millwork, imported ceramic tile, Corian or granite countertops, hardwood flooring, and English or walkout basements.

Within Bailey Estates, Gerstad Builders also offers homebuyers the opportunity to modify any available floor plan. Because each home is stick built, customizing is possible. Homes can be expanded, additional volume ceilings can be incorporated, and interior and exterior walls can be relocated.

The community is served by Williams Bay Elementary School and Williams Bay Jr. /Sr. High School.
