The Windmill by Phillippe Builders sits on a premium homesite, nestled on a private cul-de-sac and backing up to a picturesque water feature, located in Wysteria Gate of The Gates of St. John.
It is the latest Home of the Month selection by the SouthWest Suburban Home Builders Association (SSHBA), which supports the American dream of home ownership by promoting high standards, professionalism and service within the local building industry.
Ideally situated between The Gates of St. John’s expansive boulevard and one of the community parks, Wysteria Gate is an exclusive enclave of estate homes in northwest Indiana’s groundbreaking multi-generational community located on Route 231 (109th Street), east of Route 41 and west of Interstate 65, between Parrish and Cline.
The Windmill is a modern Midwestern family home design featuring an open concept floor plan with dramatic cathedral vaulted ceilings and an emphasis on the kitchen and luxurious master bedroom suite. It offers all-brick construction, three to four bedrooms and two baths in a ranch design with partial basement and three-car garage, priced at $349,900.
Loaded with unique architectural detail inside and out, including hand-scraped hardwood floors and a stylish double-sided fireplace that can be enjoyed in the great room as well as the master suite, this classic American home boasts a spacious kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops plus a convenient center island for food preparation and casual meals. The rear of the home features French doors leading out to the back patio, facing a serene pond.
Along with the fireplace, the master retreat boasts a decorative tray ceiling and glamour bath with custom walk-in shower and large whirlpool bath.
In addition to all the benefits of living in St. John, which was ranked No. 48 on CNN/Money’s 2009 list of America’s Best Small Towns, The Gates of St. John is just a few minutes west of Crown Point’s historic downtown, 20 minutes from the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and a short commute to the south suburbs as well as downtown Chicago, with easy access to Ilinois 394.
Homeowners also appreciate Indiana’s 1 percent property tax caps and community services. The Gates of St. John is home to a distinguished K-8 parochial school, and the public schools are well-regarded in the state of Indiana.
The Windmill at 10303 Silver Maple Drive in St. John, is priced at $349,900. Visit The Gates of St. John Sales Center Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed Tuesday and Wednesday) or call Jennifer McCollom at (219) 558-8900 to schedule an appointment.
