Brookside Meadows has exactly what new homebuyers look for: value, comfort, solid construction and just as important, location.

Along with all of the peaceful attributes of a secluded neighborhood, Brookside Meadows in Tinley Park is just minutes away from all the shopping, recreation, cultural events and dining of a major world class city. The Metra rail is a short drive away, perfect for commuters traveling to and from the city. Hundreds of retail choices are within a tight radius, including Orland Square, an upscale shopping experience located just minutes away in Orland Park.

Crana Homes’ newest community consists of more than 100 single-family attached homes and 21 single-family homes. Among the homes is the Lennan II, selected as the October “Home of the Month” by the Southwest Suburban Home Builders Association.

In honor of the award, Crana has built a specially-designed three-bedroom version of the Lennan II and attractively priced it at only $249,900. The home will be available January 2014. There is only one available at this price (the standard base price of $257,900). Just a few of its features and extras are, a full lookout basement, fireplace, granite kitchen countertops, two skylights, oak doors and trim and more.

There are four available home designs to choose from at Brookside Meadows, each comparable in square footage to many single-family homes. The single-family attached homes include a two-car garage, full basement and a long list of features and options. Two of these home designs can be viewed as fully decorated models. The other two can be viewed on YouTube by clicking the link at the bottom front page of the builder’s Website.

For the energy conscious homeowner, these homes also include many “green” features, including Energy Miser hot water heaters, vented soffits, 1¾-inch insulated entrance doors, energy-efficient appliances, Low-E glass and Tuff-R insulated wall sheathing.
