Do you dream of a lakehouse without the extra work & upkeep associated with a typical house? Consider the Cottages at Newport Cove. Newport Cove is an award-winning planned community with three neighborhoods: the Cottages, Estates & Waterfront. Each neighborhood has its own personality & price point. The Cottages neighborhood is a cluster of 31 single-famliy home sites a short walk or golf cart ride to the lake. Here an association fully maintains the landscaping & removes the snow. The homes, all designed for easy exterior maintenance, are smaller than those in the Estates & Waterfront areas, but built with the same exacting standards, the same quality products. Because the Cottages especially appeal to empty-nesters & singles, they all arel ranch plans or plans with first-floor masters. Although just four floor plans are offered, no two homes have been built identically; owners can put their own touches into their Cottage - design their own kitchen & bath layouts, move walls, even add or subtract space. The standard plans range in size from 1,465 to 2,300 sq. ft. All homes come with insulated full basements. Garages typically have room for two cars plus a golf cart. On display are three professionally decorated Cottage model homes to give potential owners a good feel for the space & its amenities. Should you not have time to build & need immediate occupancy, two of these decorated models - the HIGHMEADOW & STILLWATER - are available for sale at excellent prices.

Thinking of building a home on or near the water? Consider Newport Cove, a 67-home award-winning "green" community on the Chain O' Lakes. Newport Cove is a 42-acre planned development. Its private 100-slip marina & waterfront park are the heart of a plan where 40% of the property is open land & the marina is your gateway to a boating paradise of 15 interconnected lakes. Our 21 WATERFRONT home sites are reserved for custom, build-to-suit houses ranging in size from 2,500 to 4,200 sq. ft. - all with walk-out basements facing the lake. Available WATERFRONT sites include LOTS 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 11, 12, 14, 18 & 19. Our 15 ESTATES sites (just off the water) accommodate homes from 2,200 to 3,500 sq. ft. Available ESTATES sites include LOTS 23, 24, 26, 27, 29 & 35. All homesites are on high ground - far above any flood plains. Newport Cove has its own sewer system, so - unlike many home sites along the Chain - no individual septic system is required & you can build as many bathrooms & install as many plumbing fixtures as you desire. You can hire us to design your lot/house package OR you may opt to buy a lot & bring in your own build team. WATERFRONT lots range from $227,000 to $303,000, while ESTATES lots go from $82,000 to $99,000. Expect to spend at least $400,000 for an ESTATES home & $600,000 for a WATERFRONT home. Since Newport is a planned development, it has architectural standards & community guidelines. This ensures a beautiful neighborhood for decades to come.

 Few tips about Illinois

Illinois ( IL-i-NOY) is a state in the Midwestern United States. It is the 5th most populous and 25th most extensive state, and is often noted as a microcosm of the entire country. With Chicago in the northeast, small industrial cities and great agricultural productivity in central and northern Illinois, and natural resources like coal, timber, and petroleum in the south, Illinois has a diverse economic base and is a major transportation hub. The Port of Chicago connects the state to other global ports from the Great Lakes, via the Saint Lawrence Seaway, to the Atlantic Ocean; as well as the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River, via the Illinois River. For decades, O'Hare International Airport has been ranked as one of the world's busiest airports. Illinois has long had a reputation as a bellwether both in social and cultural terms and politics.

Although today the state's largest population center is around Chicago in the northern part of the state, the state's European population grew first in the west, with French Canadians who settled along the Mississippi River. After the American Revolutionary War established the United States, American settlers began arriving from Kentucky in the 1810s via the Ohio River, and the population grew from south to north. In 1818, Illinois achieved statehood. After construction of the Erie Canal increased traffic and trade through the Great Lakes, Chicago was founded in the 1830s on the banks of the Chicago River, at one of the few natural harbors on southern Lake Michigan. John Deere's invention of the self-scouring steel plow turned Illinois' rich prairie into some of the world's most productive and valuable farmlands, attracting immigrant farmers from Germany and Sweden. Railroads carried immigrants to new homes, as well as being used to ship their commodity crops out to markets.

By 1900, the growth of industrial jobs in the northern cities and coal mining in the central and southern areas attracted immigrants from Eastern and Southern Europe. Illinois was an important manufacturing center during both world wars. The Great Migration from the South established a large community of African Americans in Chicago, who created the city's famous jazz and blues cultures.

Three U.S. presidents have been elected while living in Illinois: Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, and Barack Obama. Additionally, Ronald Reagan, whose political career was based in California, was the only US President born and raised in Illinois. Today, Illinois honors Lincoln with its official state slogan, Land of Lincoln, which has been displayed on its license plates since 1954. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is located in the state capital of Springfield.
