Castletown Homes maintains a longstanding relationship with the southwest suburban village of Lemont, a bond that grows and evolves to promote the most compelling characteristics of suburban living.

A 19th-Century stop for immigrant laborers building the Illinois-Michigan Canal, Lemont has blossomed into one of Chicagoland’s most sought-after communities with its mix of historic charm, scenic beauty, decorated schools and high-end housing stock.

Across three decades, Lemont-based Castletown has added hundreds of new homes and residents to Lemont, advancing the spirit that defines the family friendly village and delivering a diverse array of homes characterized by distinctive exterior style and luxurious interior touches.

“Throughout our time building in Lemont, we’ve consistently focused on creating first-rate homes matching the special character of the village and providing our homeowners a home they can be proud to call their own for years to come,” said Castletown Homes’ Ann Bell, a Lemont resident for nearly two decades.

Castletown’s insistence on luxury and custom-crafted style sits on full display at its two current Lemont-based developments, Krystyna Crossing and The Glens of Connemara.

Krystyna Cross is a centrally located subdivision that features 25 uniquely arranged homesites. A pair of “spec” homes, plans never before used by Castletown Homes, are available for occupancy within 60 days on cul-de-sac lots. This spring, Castletown will add two more spec homes, both of the popular Tara plan. Prices start at $450,000 for homes covering at least 3,000 square feet.

“There’s no doubt that Krystyna Crossing has resonated with buyers who want homesites in a smaller community that is near all of the action that Lemont has to offer,” Bell said.

Only a handful of homesites from Castletown Homes remain at The Glens of Connemara, an upscale community on Lemont’s eastern edge.

Castletown currently has one spec home for sale and move-in within 60 days. Priced at $580,000, the 3,600-square foot Waterford II sits on a walkout lot and boasts an open floor plan with a two-story great room, four bedrooms, 3½ baths, and elegant touches including a custom-designed fireplace, glazed kitchen cabinets and formal dining room with wainscoting. The elegant master suite features a master bath with double vanities, whirlpool tub and oversized spa shower.

This spring, Castletown will add two additional spec homes to The Glens of Connemara, an Ashford and Tara. Both homes will offer the most in-demand features from today’s buyers: brick-and-stone exterior construction, hardwood flooring, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, posh master suites and custom-designed oak staircases.

“Our mindset has always been to build homes that match what today’s buyers want, which is why we put such a focus on listening to our buyers and understanding the unique touches they want in their homes,” Bell said.

Lemont, which has watched its population surge more than 22 percent since 2000, claims the family friendly, character-driving amenities to rival any suburban Chicago community. From award-winning schools and a historic downtown lined with independent restaurants and small businesses to a thriving commercial presence that sits on the edge of town and easy access to major roadways such as Interstates 55, 355 and 294.

“Lemont may not be the biggest community in the Chicago area or the most well known, but for those who live here it’s a real special place with plenty of wonderful amenities to offer,” Bell said.
