34 | April 12, 2018 | The frankfort station local living Distinctive Home Builders Introduces New Craftsman Home Series At Prairie Trails in Manhattan and WestGate Manor in Peotone! Two new designs (with more to follow) are a direct result of buyer feedback Two refreshing designs mark the beginning of a new series of Craftsman-style homes available from Distinctive Home Builders at its latest new home communities: Prairie Trails; located in Manhattan within the highly-regarded Lincoln-Way School District and at WestGate Manor in Peotone within the desirable Peotone School District. “Craftsman homes were introduced in the early 1900s in California with designs based on a simpler, functional aesthetic using a higher level of craftsmanship and natural materials. These homes were a departure from homes that were mass produced from that era, “according to Bryan Nooner, president of Distinctive Home Builders. “The Craftsman design has made a comeback today for many of the same reasons it started over a century ago. Our customers want to live in a home that gets away from the “mass produced” look and live in a home that has more character. As a result of our daily interaction with our homeowners and their input, we are excited to introduce these two homes, with additional designs in the works.” Nooner, who meets with each homeowner prior to construction, has been working on these plans for a while and felt that the timing was ideal for the debut. “Customers were asking for something different and simple with less monotony and higher architectural standards.” The result was the Craftsman ranch and the Prairie twostory, now available at Prairie Trails and WestGate Manor. The Craftsman ranch features an open floor plan with Great Room, three bedrooms, two baths and a two-car (optional three-car) garage. The Prairie features a two-story foyer and Great Room, three bedrooms and one and one-half baths, a convenient Flex Room space on the main level and a two-car (optional three-car) garage. The Craftsman architectural elements on both homes include brick and stone exteriors with cedar shake accent siding, low-pitched gabled bracket roofs, front porches with tapered columns and stone piers, partially paned windows, and a standard panel front entry door. Distinctive Home Builders offers a Craftsman-style trim package offering trim without ornate profiles and routers. The trim features simplicity in design with rectangles, straight lines and layered look trims over doors for example. The front entry door will have the standard Craftsman panel style door. Distinctive has also created a Craftsman color palate to assist buyers in making coordinated choices for the interior of their new Craftsman home. Colors, cabinet styles and flooring choices blend seamlessly with the Craftsman trim package and are available in gray tones package and earth tones. Distinctive offers custom maple kitchen cabinets featuring solid wood construction (no particle board), have solid wood drawers with dove tail joints, which is very rare in the marketplace. “When you buy a new home from Distinctive, you truly are receiving custom made cabinets in every home we sell no matter what the price range,” noted Nooner. Distinctive Home Builders works to achieve a delivery goal of 90 days with zero punch list items for its homeowners. “Our three decades building homes provides an efficient construction system,” said Nooner. “Many of our skilled craftsmen have been working with our company for over 20 years. We also take pride on having excellent communicators throughout our organization. This translates into a positive buying and building experience for our homeowners and one of the highest referral rates in the industry.” Nooner added that all homes are highly energy efficient. Every home built will have upgraded wall and ceiling insulation values with energy efficient windows and high efficiency furnaces. Before homeowners move into their new home, Distinctive Home Builders conducts a blower door test that pressurizes the home to ensure that each home passes a set of very stringent Energy Efficiency guidelines. With the addition of these two new designs, there are now 15 ranch, split-level and six twostory single-family home styles to choose from each offering from three to eight different exterior elevations at both communities. The three- to four-bedroom homes feature one and one-half to two-and-one-half baths, twoto three-car garages and a family room, all in approximately 1,600 to over 3,000 square feet of living space. Basements are included in most models as well. Distinctive also encourages customization to make your new home truly personalized to suit your lifestyle. Oversize home sites; brick exteriors on all four sides of the first floor; custom maple cabinets; ceramic tile or hardwood floors in the kitchen, baths and foyer; genuine wood trim and doors and concrete driveways can all be yours at Prairie Trails and WestGate Manor. Most all home sites at Prairie Trails and WestGate Manor can accommodate a three-car garage; a very important amenity to the Manhattan homebuyer, said Nooner. “When we opened Prairie Trails and WestGate Manor we wanted to provide the best new home value for the dollar and we feel with offering Premium Standard Features that we do just that. So why wait? This is truly the best time to build your dream home!” Prairie Trails is also a beautiful place to live and raise a family featuring a 20-acre lake on site, as well as direct access to the 22- mile Wauponsee Glacial Prairie Path that borders the community and meanders through many neighboring communities and links to many other popular trails. The Manhattan Metra station is less than a mile away. Besides Prairie Trails, Distinctive Home Builders has built homes throughout Manhattan in the Butternut Ridge and Leighlinbridge developments, as well as in the Will and south Cook county areas over the past 30 years. Distinctive Home Builders chose the Will County village of Peotone for its newest community of 38 single-family homes at WestGate Manor within walking distance of the esteemed Peotone High School. Its convenient location between Interstate 57 and Illinois Route 50 provide easy access to I-80 and commuters enjoy several nearby train stations and a 35-minute drive to Chicago.
