The happy colors and airy feel of coastal architecture inspired the Cottages at Newport Cove, a neighborhood of 31 single-family houses just off the waters of Bluff Lake near Antioch, IL. (Bluff Lake is one of 15 lakes in the famed Chain O’ Lakes in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.)

Life is fun at Newport Cove.

Kick off your sandals and relax. Drive your golf cart down to the marina and go boating or fishing. Play volleyball, softball, bags or frisbee golf in our 8-acre waterfront park. Stroll along its 1,800 feet of shoreline. Or, just sit on your porch and visit with our great neighbors.

THE BUZZ. Sell that snowblower and lawn mower on eBay. The Cottages mean not just a relaxed lifestyle but also an easy one. Life-time roofs, maintenance-free LP SmartSiding, stone accents and maintenance-free windows by Andersen, plus a homeowners association that handles lawn service, landscaping and snow removal, ensure that you won’t spend your spare time maintaining your house. Choose from four two-bedroom-plus-den floor plans, all with first-floor master suites. Cottage prices range from the high $200,000s to the low $400,000s.

THE DETAILS. The Cottages come with full basements and many luxury finishes: hardwood flooring, 8-foot interior doors, custom trim, designer kitchens with stone tops and stainless appliances, luxury baths with Kohler and Moen finishes, and a garage large enough for two cars plus your golf cart. We encourage you to personalize the plans, to put your stamp on your home; move a wall, enlarge a space, combine rooms – our design team will help you do that.

MOVE-IN READY. Two of our Cottage models – the Highmeadow and Stillwater – are now for sale. The Highmeadow is a 1,670 square foot ranch, while the Stillwater is a 1.5-story home with 2,215 square feet. Both offer additional square footage in their full basements. Just park your boat at our piers, and you’re ready for summer!

ANOTHER OPTION. Newport Cove’s other two neighborhoods offer larger homes on larger lots. The Estates area, one row off the water, has custom houses sized from 2,200 to 3,500 square feet. The Waterfront neighborhood focuses on residences sized from 2,500 to 4,200 square feet, all with walk-out basements and GREAT views. Start from scratch to design your dream home or – as many of our buyers have done – enlarge the Cottage floor plans to fit
