Prairie Park Homes & Real Estate
Prairie Park offers twelve models designed to offer between 1,289 and 2,277 square feet of living space. Buyers can select from one, two and three-bedroom units with one-and-a-half to two-and-a-half bathrooms. The builders have carefully chosen all aspects of the condos to reflect the utility and comfort of single-family homes. The condos are even as quiet as detached homes because of the large insulation spaces and amount of concrete between each floor. All units at Prairie Park are equipped with Andersen Windows to create a feeling of spaciousness and to let in plenty of natural light.
All floor plans have a private terrace for unsurpassed views. In addition, each terrace has a gas line so residents can enjoy outdoor grilling. The kitchens feature top-of-the line cabinets and counter tops as well as fixtures and appliances by recognizable manufacturers like Kohler, Andersen and GE.
The lobbies of each building are tastefully designed and feature stone fireplaces, Frank Lloyd Wright Series stained glass and original art pieces.

Prairie Park Reviews
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|August 24, 2013Prairie Park is perfect for my wife and I! Our condo here is fantastic because there is absolutely zero maintenance leaving us more time to spend doing fun things like golfing, trying out new restaurants, going to Bears and Cubs games, etc. We simply wanted a place that had a nice pool, a gym, a good location and maintenance-free lliving. It's been great!
