Why Gallagher and Henry Buyers are Selecting the Fremont

Since being introduced in 2019, the Fremont has been one of Gallagher and Henry’s most popular home plans across its eight southwest suburban communities. The 2,280-square foot ranch home has been the choice of buyers downsizing from larger, multi-story homes as well as those drawn to the appeal, ease, and convenience of one-story living modernized for 21st century lives.

Even Bigger Than it Seems…
With its wide-open floor plan dominated by a 700-square foot great room-dining room-kitchen combination, the Fremont plays much bigger than its listed 2,280 square feet. With a three-car garage, mudroom, and standard partial basement, the Fremont brings impressive size to ranch living.

Pragmatic Living…
Ranch-style homes surged in the mid-20th century as home ownership across the country soared and functionality reigned. Though ranch homes faded in popularity in the 1990s and into the Millennium, they have enjoyed a renaissance of late as buyers appreciate the functionality, the unpretentious, enduring style, and the open layouts and more casual living environments one-level living fosters. Yet more, the ability to age in place also proves appealing. That the Fremont pairs these pragmatic elements with a dynamic, contemporary design makes the home all the more attractive to Gallagher and Henry homebuyers.

An Entertainer’s Delight…
If the spacious, open floor plan and practical considerations weren’t enough, the Fremont’s kitchen features two islands, including one with a sink and dishwasher. The dual islands invite guests to gather around and enjoy conversation, food, and drink when hosting others. Given how many homeowners cite the ability to entertain as one of their top priorities when selecting a home, the Fremont’s open layout punctuated by a spacious, premium kitchen holds undeniable appeal.

Some Farmhouse Style in Suburbia…
Farmhouse chic is one of the day’s most notable housing design trends and the Fremont embraces it with two distinct farmhouse-inspired exterior elevations. The dynamic look is paired with something pragmatic Midwesterners relish, too: an all-brick exterior that speaks to durability and low maintenance.

Indoor-Outdoor Living Space…
The Fremont answers buyers’ growing desire for outdoor living space as it features an 11-by-15-foot covered concrete patio in the rear of the home. The cozy outdoor area provides homeowners valuable outdoor living space to enjoy a morning coffee, dinner, or evening conversation with family and friends. Gallagher and Henry can easily convert the patio into a screened-in sunroom as well for those who appreciate some protection from the elements.
