Biltmore Floor Plan Nearing Completion at The Trails of Dawson Creek

To keep up with current market demands, Gerstad Builders recently introduced The Biltmore floor plan; a smaller, more affordable ranch-style home at The Trails of Dawson Creek. The Biltmore is now nearing completion at the community of new Poplar Grove homes and is slated to open Sept. 30.

“The Biltmore is the perfect home for both first-time buyers and empty-nesters,” said Roger Gerstad, president of Gerstad Builders. “It is efficiently designed, lending plenty of room for a family without unnecessary space, and its single-floor design eliminates the need to climb stairs.”

Priced at $167,990, the home boasts 1,382 square feet, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage. From inside, out the floor plan offers buyers a low-maintenance lifestyle with exterior features that include vinyl siding, aluminum fascia and soffit and vinyl windows and interior finishes such as a large great room and spacious eat-in kitchen.

The home also includes some of today’s new energy-saving standards including R-38 ceiling insulation, 90+ furnace, house wrap, low-e windows and a fully-insulated basement.

In addition to The Biltmore, The Trails of Dawson Creek offers a bevy of single-family homes including ranch, two-story and tri-level floor plans. Homes boast two to five bedrooms, up to three baths and partial basements. Standard features include GE appliances, Colonist doors and trim and furniture quality cabinetry. Ranging in size from 1,300 to 3,200 square feet, the homes are priced from $156,490 to $258,990.

Located in Central Boone County, The Trails of Dawson Creek is convenient to I-39, I-90 and Metra. Families residing at The Trails of Dawson Creek enjoy a summer Farmers Market hosted by the Village of Poplar Grove. Children are served by North Boone School District 200.
