Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
Sales are currently underway for home sites in two phases of Sand Creek, a country club community by Blueprint Realty Partners, LLC which offers luxury homes in Northwest Indiana.
Located near the southern shores of Lake Michigan, and less than one hour from downtown Chicago, Sand Creek is a gated custom-home development with 80 percent of its homes – about 250 residences – already completed.
Home sites in The Estates (Phase IV) range from .63 to 1.64 acres and are priced from $89,900 to $143,900. Home sites in Bramble Park (Phase V) range from .22 to .71 acres and are priced from $56,900 to $149,900. Both phases offer a diverse selection of home sites that feature golf course, water, and park views.
The centerpiece of Sand Creek is the private Sand Creek Country Club, where members can enjoy a world-class, 27-hole golf course recognized by Golf Digest as one of Indiana’s top courses. Other amenities include a 50,000-square-foot Italian Renaissance clubhouse with dining and event facilities, men’s and women’s locker rooms and large terrace overlooking the course; a fitness center; outdoor pool; and tennis courts.
Sand Creek residents also benefit from Indiana’s property tax rate, which caps taxes at 1 percent of assessed value, a significant savings over property taxes in neighboring Illinois. In addition, a variety of financing programs are available through the developer. Buyers can build their home with one of the recommended builders, or hire an independent architect and/or builder.
“Sand Creek is a vibrant community that has a lot to offer,” said Margaret Baczkowski of Chicago-based @properties, exclusive sales and marketing agent for Sand Creek. “Residents experience luxurious, country club living, while benefitting from Indiana’s incredibly low property taxes and convenient access to downtown Chicago.”
Chesterton is a historic town just minutes from Lake Michigan and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. In addition to charming boutique shops and restaurants, Chesterton is located within the top-rated Duneland school district, which has been recognized by the U.S Department of Education as one of 13 exemplary district-wide programs in the United States.
“This community really offers the best of both worlds,” said Becky Trinks of Blueprint Realty Partners. “Residents enjoy the luxuries of a beautiful country club community, near the lake and less than an hour from the Loop, while avoiding many of the hassles and expenses of living in the suburbs of Chicago.”
Transportation between Chesterton and Chicago is convenient with Interstate 94, the Indiana Toll Road and the South Shore Line commuter train, with service to Millennium Park, located nearby.
The Sand Creek community is shown by appointment only. For more information on luxury homes in Northwest Indiana at Sand Creek or to schedule a showing, call Lindsay Guhl at (317) 506.0837 or visit http://www.blueprintrealtypartners.com or @properties site.
