Prestwick Model Home Opens in Dawson Creek

Prestwick kitchen model A new model home recently opened in Gerstad Builders’ Trails of Dawson Creek community in Poplar Grove, Illinois!

The ranch-style Prestwick is one of our most popular floor plans and features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a two-car garage and basement option. Well-designed living space creates the perfect area for entertaining with a spacious great room that opens up to a breakfast room and upscale kitchen. In addition to the open floor plan that is perfect for families, the Prestwick can be customized to include features that make it the perfect multigenerational home. 

In 2014, it’s not uncommon for aging parents to move in with their baby boomer children, who may also have teenagers living under the same roof.  In fact, the Prestwick plan was designed with this trend in mind and can easily be transformed into a space that is easily accessible to everyone, regardless of age or ability.

Buyers who opt for the multi-generational version of this plan will see that it is designed to make loved ones feel as though they have a space of their own as opposed to feeling like “guests.”  Roger Gerstad created an option for the Prestwick plan that includes a spacious in-law suite, comprised of 566 square feet. This room also features a large walk-in closet, handicap accessible bathroom and sitting area. The doorway of the in-law suite is also easily accessible by wheel-chair users, with a 36-inch wide door frame. In addition, this suite features a private entrance for guests to drop by without disturbing other members of the family.

Convenience and accessibility are two of the top-priorities for new home buyers, many who are considering the popular aging in place trend for themselves. They want to invest in a space in which they are assured that they can grow and eventually spend their golden years in.  Most importantly, Poplar Grove buyers want a home that is truly built with their future in mind, and Gerstad Builders can do just that!

If you are interested in building a home with multi-generational appeal or are considering the popular “aging in place” trend, the Prestwick plan is perfect for you! Be sure to visit Gerstad Builders online and schedule an appointment to stop by and tour the beautiful new model home at the Trails of Dawson Creek!*
