Flawlessly crafted to accommodate various lifestyles and family dynamics, the Cabernet II, a model home by Woodland Homes in Omaha, has easily become the builder’s most popular floor plan offered for many reasons. While the initial design is mapped out to offer ease, clients are also given the opportunity to make style customizations to fit their specific needs.
Jenn Haeg, a representative for Woodland Homes and Birchwood Homes, is no stranger to the build process. She’s been in the real estate realm for a decade and has personally built five homes. So, it comes as no surprise that she understands the common stressors of building a home and aims to eliminate obstacles for buyers. Haeg, alongside business partner Heather Chaney, leads the Homelife Realty Group within the brokerage of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate – The Good Life Group. The team prides itself on being new construction experts from the $300,000 to $800,000 price range, offering multiple build options to clients.
“With Woodland, we can really be a complete custom builder,” Haeg said. “We spend a lot of time up front working with the client to get the home customized to minimize the number of change orders along the way. This particular floor plan has become so popular, the builder has already built in most of these preferred changes. We also offer multiple style elevations or exteriors so that the home can be traditional, modern, timeless, or craftsman.”
The Cabernet II checks a lot of boxes for people, Haeg said, but it works especially well for growing families. Now more than ever before, the dedicated office on the main floor is especially important for homebuyers, as more people have been working from home recently. Additionally, the walk-through drop zone/pantry/locker area located right off the 3+ garage is convenient for busy households. “This area makes it so easy to just drop the groceries, backpacks, and other items so as to not clutter all of the kitchen counters and living space,” she said.
According to Haeg, the main floor easily accommodates 70 guests with its open concept and ample seating at the oversized island in the kitchen and dining and dinette areas. Other unique aspects include the spacious master suite that features a sitting room with a fireplace, two closets, and a dreamy master bath.
Throughout the build process, Haeg said the team maintains a very clean job site, adheres to strict timelines, and all vendors take great pride in their product. “We stay up to date on trends and make sure that our clients’ needs are being heard and addressed,” she said.
When it comes to lot inventory, options stretch across town and are plentiful. Clients can choose whether they want a walkout or flat and can also decide which direction they want the house to face. “We try to take in all of the environmental factors, too, and offer our advice,” Haeg said. “For us, it’s about navigating them through the selection process and personalizing the home—and experience—and having fun along the way.”
Currently, plans are also in motion for phase two of the Aspen Creek North development in Gretna at 192nd Street and Lincoln Road. This will include four circle drives that back to green space, deeming the lots in high demand. “People are especially attracted to this neighborhood because of the new Aspen Creek elementary and middle schools, as well as the school district’s second high school that is currently under construction,” Haeg said. “Gretna is growing so fast and is one of the most popular communities to live in. It allows families to live outside of Omaha but still have those sought-after amenities, as well.”
This model property is located at 10327 S. 189th Street in the Aspen Creek North subdivision and is open weekends from 12pm-4pm.
