Picture of Chicago

Waterfront Homes for Sale Elgin, IL

This city was named after the Scottish tune, “Elgin” but some prefer to call it by the moniker, “Watch City” because it was the home to the largest watch producer, the Elgin Watch Company. This area is crawling with a diversity of flora and fauna as well as well as preserved historic structures. A lot about this area is subtly hidden in its motto, “City in the Suburbs”.
This city was famous for its butter and dairy goods shipped across Chicago. The growth of the dairy industry led Gail Borden to set up a condensed milk factory in 1866. The arrival of the Elgin Watch Company made the dairy industry less pronounced. Today, the employment opportunities have skyrocketed following the diversification of the economy.
Whether it is a weekend or holiday and you just want to have fun, there are lots of places you can visit. The Center of Elgin is a 185,000 sq. ft. recreation center with fitness club, track, ball court, pool, and community areas.
If you are a sucker for good food, Elgin restaurants will present you with more than ample options. Bennigan’s, for example, is an Irish pub serving burgers and classic American flare.
Have you ever fantasized about living close to the water? How about swimming, fishing, or canoeing with your friends all day long? These fantasies can become a reality when you buy one of the waterfront homes in this area.
There are 18 communities dotted by waterfront homes of different designs, situated walking distances from the river. The least expensive among them is Woodland Hills by Taylor Morrison. This exquisite design can be yours for $299,990.
Other benefits are low maintenance and energy efficiency. NewHomeSource is the smart place to start your search for new waterfront homes.
