Hartz Homes has announced a variety of new incentives at Hibernia of New Lenox, an established community of 139 single-family homes offering 12 different floor plans ranging from a base price of $245,900 to $423,900 for 1,800 to 3,390 square feet.

“Even as mortgage rates remain low, we recognize that people are looking carefully at their homebuilding decisions,” said Samar Kayyal, divisional sales manager for Hartz Homes. “We want to further help jumpstart the home-buying conversation by providing select lots to be just a bit more within reach.”

A $10,000 incentive applies to the less than 13 remaining ‘Phase 4’ home sites at Hibernia, as well as $5,000 incentive on ‘Phase 3’ lots, where fewer than 40 remain.

Kayyal saaid that, in addition to monetary incentives, Hartz is offering free seed, sod and air conditioning to the next four homes sold.

“We actually started out offering this incentive on the next 10 homes sold, but because it is valid with any home site, in any phase, we’ve already sold six homes ... so these specials will not last long,” Kayyal said.

Hibernia in New Lenox offers more than a dozen floor plans and numerous upgrades, ranging from ranch homes with features such as vaulted ceilings and brick exteriors to an array of two-story homes offering two-car garages and upgrade options such as a loft, den/home office, sun room, additional bedrooms and baths, first-floor guest suites, full basements and three-car garages, per plan.

For example, the Keswick, a 3,390-square-foot home, offers floor plans with four different room configurations in order to adapt to buyer preferences. While it comes standard with four bedrooms and 2½ baths, buyers can opt for a first-floor bedroom and full bath, a sun room or a den.

Shown as a model, the Keswick plan displays the optional first-floor sun room with French doors opening to the living room, as well as an upgraded, three-car garage, and a standard full basement.

The community also offers three different ranch plans: the Genesis III, Genesis IV and the Crystal.

Ranging from 1,800 to 2,410 square feet, these appeal to downsizing buyers as well as families due to their three bedrooms, two to 2½ baths and attached two- to three-car garages.

Located near Interstates 355 and 80 and abundant shopping, the Hibernia lifestyle is enhanced by a variety of amenities. Residents can enjoy a pavilion, a private park with picnic areas, sand volleyball courts, lake with a fishing pier and canoe launch, water spray area, playground and walking/jogging trails.

The sales center and model for Hibernia are located at 869 O’Connell Street. Hours are Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.to 5 p.m (closed Wednesday and Thursday).
