Located off Cedar and Smith Roads in Manhattan, on-site sales open on Friday February 8. Butternut Ridge will offer buyers 3 and 4 bedroom homes ranging in size from 1500 sq. ft. to 3,000 sq ft with ranch, split level and two-story designs. Special limited time grand opening prices start from the $190s with numerous quality appointments and value-added amenities that are considered upgrades with most other builders.
“Brick exteriors on all four sides of the first floor, basements, ceramic tile in the kitchen, baths and foyer; custom oak cabinets, oak trim and doors and concrete driveways are some of the inclusions that are part of this unique opportunity,”
Nooner added that all our homes are highly energy efficient and will be built to the new Energy Conservation Code guidelines. Every home we build will have upgraded wall and ceiling insulation values, energy efficient windows and before our customers take possession of their new home we will be doing a blower door test to insure that our homes pass a set of very stringent guidelines that we have adopted that will insure that our homes are tight and energy efficient.
“This means our homeowners will spend less on energy costs such as gas and electrical which will give them more money to do other things with each month,” added Nooner. “It’s kind of like getting a raise!”
“If you were thinking of building a new home there is no better time than now,” said Nooner. “The media has reported that prices to build a new home are going to be rising and we have a unique situation where for a limited time the Village of Manhattan has lowered building permit fees and financing is available at historically incredibly low rates. Distinctive Home Builders has special financing arranged for its Grand Opening with rates hovering around 3.5% for a 30 year fixed mortgage.
Simply stated, if you want a new home do not put the decision off any longer. This is a perfect combination of numerous factors working together for the best new home value: Incredible standard features in our new homes, special introductory pricing, historic low financing, highly-ranked schools and an unbeatable energy-efficient home.”
“Case in point, Butternut Ridge buyers can get a 3.5%, 30-year fixed mortgage with a 3% down payment (requiring only 1.5% from the buyer’s own funds),” said Nooner.
Butternut Ridge homeowners can count on top-notch schools. In fact, Manhattan’s Lincoln-Way Community School District 210 is ranked among the top 10 in the Chicago area.
The village’s proximity to New Lenox, Frankfort and Orland Park provides a retreat from busy urban areas, yet Butternut Ridge is also convenient to shopping and transportation. A Jewel and a Wal-Mart are only minutes away, while Orland Park Mall is a twenty minute drive. Commuters are just minutes from I-355 and I-80 and less than 10 miles from I-57 and I-55. Those who prefer commuting by rail can use either the Manhattan or New Lenox Metra stations that are only three and four miles away.
To reach the Butternut Ridge sales office, take I-80 to the Briggs Street exit; head south to Laraway Road; head east on Laraway Rd. to Cedar Road and proceed three miles south to Butternut Ridge.
