Anyone who wants a ranch home in a stunning environmentally sensitive rural community, yet craves the convenience of access to a golf course and new clubhouse, might want to pay a visit to Henning Estates in rural Huntley.
“Many people searching for a new home community that offers the peaceful serenity found in the rural countryside, assume that it must be located in the middle of nowhere, and difficult to reach by car or train,” said Ryan VanLue, co-founder of Henning Estates. “Well, our community offers all of the benefits you seek plus quick and easy access to a top-notch golf course and it new clubhouse.”
Golf enthusiasts will enjoy Henning Estates close proximity to the Blackstone Golf Club and its new clubhouse/restaurant. Only one mile from Henning Estates, the lush fairways and greens of Blackstone Golf Club meander through some of the most distinctive natural landscape of any course in the Chicagoland area. The seasoned golfer will find challenge in avoiding the 54 sand bunkers while the more novice golfer will enjoy the spectacular visual setting with generous fairways.
For a limited time the owners of Henning Estates has worked out a deal with the club, and families who purchase a home in the community will get a one-year “gold” membership to the golf club for free. This membership at Blackstone will give the new homeowners an opportunity to enjoy a country club feeling without having to pay an expensive initiation fee or costly monthly dues.

At Henning Estates, 80 percent of the one-third-acre homesites are suitable for the construction of a home on a walk-out or look-out basement. Each homesite backs up to a pond, mature woods or natural tall grass prairies.
“We made an effort to make sure that the back yard of every home opens up to some sort of green space,” said VanLue. “Sometimes it might be a pond, other times it might be mature stands of trees and then again it could be a natural tall grass prairie. The result of this effort is that homeowners will very seldom ever look out their back windows and see the back yard of another home.”
