"We're extremely excited to now have this beautifully decorated model home at Greenbrook, showcasing one of the best-selling floor plans in our entire portfolio," said Brian Brunhofer, president of Meritus Homes.
"Prospective buyers who walk through this model will understand right away why the Dunberry is so popular at all of our Chicago-area communities," said Brunhofer
"The first floor has a very open flow between the living and dining room at the front of the home and the family room and kitchen to the rear.
To see it fully furnished not only helps buyers envision themselves living in this home, but also demonstrates just how much living space this home really has."
noted the model highlights just some of the ways buyers can personalize the Dunberry.
For example, the model features a partially finished basement to create flexible extra living space, as well as a customized mudroom with built-in lockers, cubbies and a bench.
"The mudroom is always a real workhorse in any home, and the model shows the space in this plan as a very functional drop zone that will keep a family organized and limit clutter in the rest of the home," said Brunhofer
Another customized feature in the model is a butler's pantry, which is designed for entertaining with an expanse of counter space, plentiful cabinetry for storing extra dishes and glassware, and a built-in beverage center.
Adjacent to the butler's pantry is the gourmet kitchen, which features 42-inch white-finished maple cabinetry and an oversized island in a walnut stain.
Granite countertops, featuring white stone with veined patterns of gray quartz, black mica and burgundy garnet, run throughout the kitchen and the butler's pantry, and are complemented by a glass mosaic backsplash in tones of gray.
"Today's buyers see the kitchen as a prime opportunity to express their own personal style, and the model is just one example of how they can use a range of available color palettes and finishes to create the aesthetic they want," said Brunhofer
