A Farm-Based Neighborhood Grows in Illinois

Serosun is based on conservation and sustainability, and the developer wants the houses to use the same principles.

The modern prairie house is one of the architecture styles in Serosun’s neighborhood guidelines.

Because the development is centered on farming and horses, a barn-style cottage concept home is only appropriate.

The developer says each lot's characteristics will play into how the house is built.
