Ranch Plan Perfect for First-Time Home Buyers

June 27, 2010

“If you are a first-time homebuyer looking for an affordable home set on a spacious homesite, our $159,990 Prestwick ranch model at The Trails of Dawson Creek in Poplar Grove, IL is the perfect choice,” said Lynda Conkel, Vice President of Sales & Marketing.  “We will help you to secure your financing, set a ground breaking date and walk you through every step of the construction process, until we hand over the keys to your new home.”

The Prestwick is a stylish ranch with three bedrooms and two baths, a huge great room and a kitchen and breakfast area.  For an additional fee, the great room of the 1,567 square-foot Prestwick can be enhanced by a volume-enhancing cathedral ceiling adding architectural appeal to the 15’5” x 27’11” room.

The four new homes at Dawson Creek all feature the following luxury amenities: furniture-quality cabinetry, General Electric appliance package (stove, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and range hood), Kohler bathroom fixtures & faucets, and a one year warranty program.

Besides these standard features, Gerstad Builders is willing to customize its homes as much as the homebuyer requests.  The builder will move any walls, interior or exterior.  Windows can be added, enlarged or decreased.  It doesn’t make any difference what the request is; Gerstad is willing to do it.  The company is eager to make these types of alterations because it has years of experience in the custom homebuilding industry.

Gerstad Builders also offers an extensive variety of optional features in all its homes including skylights, three-car garages (per plan), wood-burning fireplace, additional volume ceilings, custom millwork, imported ceramic tile, Corian or granite counter tops, hardwood flooring, and English or walkout basements.

In addition to the four new homes, Gerstad offers 12 other floor plans that can be constructed to match a family’s needs and desires.  These customizable ranch and two-story homes provide 1,560 to 3,177 square feet of living space and are priced from $149,990 to $239,990 (Prices subject to change).

Although Dawson Creek offers beautiful, well-crafted single-family homes, of equal importance are the village in which the community sits and the schools that educate its children.

The Village of Poplar Grove is only 17 miles east of Rockford.  The schools are highly regarded and nearby Rockford Hospitals are fully staffed and prepared to handle virtually all health-care needs.

The Trails of Dawson Creek is located on the north side of Orth Road, approximately 1/2 mile east of Route 76.  The sales center is open Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
