Gerstad Builders’ Liberty Trails development is one of the new communities in McHenry. The quiet neighborhood offers both ranch and two-story homes ranging in price from the $190’s to $297,000.

Plus, all of our communities including The Trails of Dawson Creek, The Trails of Pheasant Ridge and the Williams Bay real estate at Bailey Estates offer huge savings now that we’ve rolled back the cost of our new homes all the way back to their 2003 price points. We’re even offering 10 percent off the base price of our new homes for the first 10 buyers who close in 2011.
