The "HOME OF THE MONTH" program has been established as an informal agreement between the Sun-Times News Group, 22nd Century Media, Inc. and the SSHBA to help builders generate consumer traffic and interest in new home sales.

Each month, on the third Thursday, the Southtown/Star reserves the front half page of the Home Guild Section for our Home of the Month winner. These winners are chosen from entries submitted by our builders and are judged by a committee with established criteria.

Brookside Meadows Features the Award Winning Lennan II 

Brookside Meadows has exactly what new homebuyers look for: value, comfort, solid construction and just as important, location.  Along with all of the peaceful attributes of a secluded neighborhood, Brookside Meadows is just minutes away from all the shopping, recreation, cultural events and dining of a major world class city.  The Metra rail is a short drive away, perfect for commuters traveling to and from the city.  Hundreds of retail choices are within a tight radius, including Orland Square, an upscale shopping experience located just minutes away in Orland Park.


Brookside Meadows, Crana Homes’ newest community consists of over 100 single-family attached homes and 21 single-family homes. Crana Homes is proud to have the Lennan II awarded Octobers winning Home of the Month by the Southwest Suburban Home Builders Association. In honor of this award, Crana Homes has built a specially designed three bedroom version of the Lennan II and this home is attractively priced at only $249,900 (available January 2014).  There is only ONE available at this price, so be sure to stop by as this home is loaded with extras and listed well below the standard base price of $257,900. Just a few of its features and extras are, a full look out basement, fireplace, granite kitchen counter tops, two skylights, oak doors and trim and many more. 


There are four available home designs to choose from, each comparable in square footage to many single-family homes. Single-family attached homes represent great new home value and include a two-car garage, full basement and a long list of features and options.  Two of these home designs can be viewed as fully decorated models. The other two can be viewed on YouTube by clicking the link at the bottom front page of our website.


For the energy conscious homeowner these homes also include many ‘green’ features including Energy Miser hot water heaters, vented soffits, 1.75” insulated entrance doors, energy efficient appliances, Low-E glass and Tuff-R insulated wall sheathing.


Even with all of these great features, every Crana home comes standard with something that is equally important: the people building your home.  The Bradley family is dedicated to their craft and personally ensures that only the highest standards and finest materials are used.  Crana Homes’ fine craftsmanship is evident throughout the beautifully decorated models.


The quality and location of Brookside Meadows makes it difficult for new homebuyers to resist. Tinley Park boasts 40 parks, 33 ball fields, along with several other facilities including the Tony Bettenhausen recreational center with an indoor playground. Residents also have access to an indoor jogging/walking track, gymnasium with three basketball and six volleyball courts, museum, meeting rooms, teaching center, teen/senior drop-in center and much more.

 Brookside Meadows is located in Tinley Park on LaPorte Road, just east of La Grange Road.  From I-80, exit La Grange Road south to LaPorte Road and turn east to Brookside Meadows.  More information is available at the Brookside Meadows Sales Center at 19839 Mulroy Court, online at cranahomes.com or by phone at 708-479-5111.  Sizes, prices and dimensions are subject to change.
