Now Is The Time To Live The New Lakeshore Luxury

Published: Friday, September 6, 2019

Recently made available in June, Phillippe Builders - known throughout Northwest Indiana for building quality custom homes – has new single-family homes, townhomes, and paired villas opening at Marina Shores, a luxurious waterfront and maintenance-free gated community just steps away from the Indiana Dunes State Park. Available now, villas start at $220s, townhomes at $310s, and single-family homes in the $330s.

“Marina Shores offers homeowners maintenance-free living and a luxurious lifestyle,” says Rachael Phillippe, Sales and Marketing Director for Phillippe Builders, a multi-generational family business celebrating their 60th anniversary this year. “Homeowners can experience the quiet and relaxation of being on vacation year-round,” Phillippe says.

Residents at Marina Shores can enjoy numerous onsite amenities and conveniences such as WIFI throughout the Marina, an inground heated pool, fitness center, onsite restaurant “Bulldog on the Lake”, outdoor grills, and picnic areas.

“Whether you are looking to spend your summers along the shores of Lake Michigan or become a year-round resident of Marina Shores, Phillippe Builders will take your dreams and build you a reality,” encourages Phillippe.

Living here also puts you close to all that Chicago has to offer, about 30 to 40 minutes away by car. For boaters, it’s 26 nautical miles to Chicago to the west and slightly further to Michigan City, Ind., and New Buffalo, Mich., to the east from the marina, which has access to Lake Michigan. Traveling to Chicago, Michigan City, and South Bend is an easy trip via the South Shore electric train which departs from the Ogden Dunes depot just across the road on U.S. 12.

Close proximity to the Indiana Dunes State Park makes it possible to enjoy the woods, hiking paths, and beaches, plus a boardwalk was recently completed along the channel leading to Lake Michigan, making the beach easily accessible.

Northwest Indiana also offers much lower property taxes than in Illinois. There’s been a recent increase in people moving to this area where lower house prices mean more home for the money, as well as access to great schools and communities plus an ease of living.

For those thinking of buying, it’s best to move fast. “Time is running out for any new build home in order for it to be completed by the end of the holidays or the end of year,” says Phillippe.

Phillippe Builders is offering a great incentive to buy now:

Enter into a contract by September 30, 2019, and you
