Newport Cove is a planned unit development. In other words, the land plan has slightly smaller and clustered home sites, large common green areas and lifestyle covenants.
Newport Cove also is a diverse community. Housing prices range from the low $300,000s to about $1 million. But, all houses have one element in common. Because strict architectural guidelines govern the construction of each home, all are built with the same high-quality materials and the same coastal-style architecture.
A planned unit development also has guidelines that make community living more enjoyable for all residents. For example, an “eyesore” clause prohibits sheds, trailers or boats in Newport Cove yards.
Since 40 percent of the site (or 15 acres) is open space, the vast majority of the homes overlook beautifully landscaped common areas. These include swaths of native plants, a waterfront park, walking and cart paths and a lighted waterfront walk-way along the community’s 1,800 feet of Bluff Lake shoreline. An underground storm water system ensures that no runoff from the development ends up in the lakes. A state-of-the-art community treatment plant offers sanitary sewer service to the homes. Indeed, Newport Cove is a very “green” community.Check out the Marina
"My husband and I have been very fortunate to find this little paradise called Newport Cove. I would have to say last summer was one of the best summers for our children; they had so much to do - from swimming and watersports to all the recreation that is offered in our community. Not only do we get to vacation where we live, but we have been blessed with neighbors who feel like family! We have never felt more welcome. I can honestly say, after 20 years of living in Illinois, I finally feel at home!"Catherine Elders pictured with husband Chad
"We love Newport Cove," says Aurora. "We haven't even moved in yet, but have met almost all of our neighbors! We've been invited into their homes and have been welcomed as if we were old friends. It is a true neighborhood were people care about each other and actually enjoy spending time together."Aurora Garcia pictured with husband Russ
"The purchase of our Newport Cove home was one of our best decisions. Coming from a golf course community, we wanted a well-built home. New American Homes exceeded our expectations. Our house is absolutely wonderful! The view of Bluff Lake is superb! An added plus is our neighbors are so welcoming. There are no strangers living at Newport Cove. As a group we meet once a month for taco night at various restaurants in the area. My only regret: I wish we'd moved sooner."Marilyn Scheetz, pictured with her husband Dave.
