Our Quality and Standard Options to the Others


McDonnell Development has been building exceptional custom and semi-custom homes throughout the South Suburbs since 1963. Creating quality craftsmanship in every home, McDonnell prices include construction "standards" which most companies identify as builder "upgrades".  All McDonnell homes stand alone in exhibiting details in over-all appearance and in portraying the excellence of workmanship of its professionally skilled tradesmen.  While numerous examples abound, McDonnell's standards include: 2 x 6 exterior wall construction; architectural roofing shingles; high level R-rated insulation procedures; and its use of low-e windows coupled with energy efficient HVAC products are all intended to create peace of mind for our clients and to insure their comfort and well-being in a McDonnell Development Co. new construction home.

White Feather Subdivision is nestled in the peaceful countryside with acres of open space, ponds, future walking paths and the historic Round Barn as our backyard. The Round Barn is home to a wide array of outdoor activities such as two age appropriate interactive playgrounds, disc-golf, tennis courts, a softball field, a fishing pond, bike paths and much more! Throughout the year it hosts various community festivals, including: Civil War days; Movies in the Park; Wine Fests; Egg Hunt for the younger kids; Flashlight Egg Hunt for the older kids; a fall Haunted Corn Maze and recently supported a fundraiser to build a future ball field for persons with special needs.


White Feather is convenient to shopping, transportation and an excellent school district. Manhattan school age residents will attend top rated grade schools and the multi-award-winning Lincoln-Way High School District #210.

Commuting from White Feather to work becomes easy, with access to I-80, I-57, I-55 and I-355. Metra System also provides railway service to-and-from Manhattan to Chicago. Come make White Feather your future home.
