The Colonial at Prairie Trail is designed to sit at the front of the lot with majestic elegance in this walkable community, while the rear-load driveway and three-car garage are out of sight.

The Colonial Revival

Do you love traditional homes but crave the modern amenities your busy life demands? Meet the Colonial Revival at Prairie Trail.

In the tradition of Iowa’s great neighborhoods, the Colonial Revival is one of four styles of homes you will find at Prairie Trail. In the fall of 2013 MJ Properties built this 2,316 square foot home in the Heritage Neighborhood close to the new Southview Middle Schools and Ankeny High School.

At Prairie Trial education is important.

So what makes a home “modern”? The open floor plan concept, a first-floor laundry, cloakroom, eat-in kitchen, first floor master bedroom and three bedrooms off the second-floor loft space make this home fitting for busy lifestyles.  Add in custom built-ins, granite counter tops, and amenities like the fire place and a walk-out into outdoor living and it makes a picture-perfect home for the modern family that comes and goes, entrains often and enjoys neighborly visits.


The kitchen is well-designed and hardworking to easily accommodate more than one chef with lots of countertop workspace in beautiful granite, under-mount sink, stainless steel appliances and floor-to-ceiling white cabinetry.

Family and friends can gather in this open concept floor plan, moving easily to chat with the chef or relax in the seating areas. Custom built-ins flank the fireplace.

Hickory Floors hardwood seamlessly ties-in the open spaces of this 1456 square foot first floor. Beautiful Frieze carpeting softens the seating areas near the fireplace and in the bedrooms and absorbs noise on the staircase.

This is a classic look for a Colonial, but several other choices can satisfy the same fundamental style while offering flexibility to match the look to a specific lot, and the homeowner’s personal style. (See the Prairie Trail pattern book for all the details).
