“People are really enthused about the area,” Rita Carmin, McFarland Homes’ new home specialist at Monastery Woods, said. “It’s a really pretty location, close to the lake, and very convenient for people who are on the go.”

Featuring two distinct floor plans, The Townhomes of Monastery Woods include a 1,144 square foot ranch plan, the Augusta, and a 1,653-1,991 square foot 2-story, the St. Andrews, which can be customized three different ways to meet your individual needs for extra closet and storage space, a full second bath and/or a third bedroom.

“For those who are looking to move into their new home right away, we currently have Express Homes of this model immediately available,” Carmin said. “You can also choose to build your own Augusta and still take advantage of the Grand Opening pricing for a limited time.”

The 2-story St. Andrews starts with a standard 1,653 square foot plan and includes 2 bedrooms, 1 ? baths, master bedroom with both walk-in and reach-in closets, second bedroom with walk-in closet, large family room with vaulted ceiling, kitchen with built-in pantry and large dinette area with sliding glass doors that lead to a 12 x 12 concrete patio, laundry room with tub and plenty of additional convenient storage space on the main floor plus a large linen closet and 12 x 9, loft perfect for a computer/office area upstairs.

“A fully customized St. Andrews with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths for a total of 1,919 square feet starts at $172,900 before special Grand Opening savings,” Carmin said. “There’s so much you can do with this flexible floor plan to meet all of your needs in a new home, all for a surprisingly affordable price.”

All of The Townhomes of Monastery Woods come complete with 2-car attached garages with automatic garage door openers and two remotes plus all the benefits of maintenance-free living with an Association to remove snow and maintain the landscaping, elegant community entryways and water features.

A nice, quiet setting with four wet ponds on the north side of Cedar Lake, Monastery Woods backs up to Parrish on 129th and is very close to Route 41 as well. An emerging hotspot in Lake County, Cedar Lake offers new homebuyers resort-style living in a quiet, country setting along with the desirable amenities of city life. In addition to a thriving downtown business district and an award-winning school district, Cedar Lake features an 805-acre spring-fed lake with more than 7 miles of shoreline and tranquil beaches for the enjoyment of residents.

With plans for a total of 230 homes, McFarland Homes is also building Paired Ranch homes in Monastery Woods.

“We also have Express Homes with Spring Savings and new construction locations available for our Paired Ranch homes in Monastery Woods,” Carmin said. “These models will also be open during The Townhome Grand Opening event. Whether you’re interested in a new Paired Ranch home or one of the new Townhome models, you’ll find unparalleled value, comfort and luxury in all of the homes at Monastery Woods.”

In fact, McFarland Homes invites you to pick up a handy “Comprehensive Comparison Guide” that you can take with you and use to shop and compare while looking for your new construction home. This valuable hand out is available in all of their sales offices and thoroughly explains over 40 of the included standard features of a McFarland home.

According to Carmin, some features are visible to you when you go through a new construction home and other items are behind the drywall. Both are extremely important to the comfort and maintenance of your home. Educated home buyers need to know the facts about the purchase that is typically their largest, single investment.

Once you have the facts and compare all of the standard features, McFarland Homes is confident that you will want to become a McFarland homeowner.

From their custom homes division and their first maintenance free, all-brick, paired ranch homes, McFarland Homes has always been an innovator in home plans offered through out Lake County. They currently offer Single Family Ranch Cottages in Griffith’s West Haven Manor and Paired Ranch Homes in Merrillville’s Mesa Ridge. McFarland Homes also recently introduced their Townhomes in The Gates of St. John.
