Windmill Interior

Real estate is always about location and St. John, which was ranked #48 on CNN/Money’s 2009 list of America’s Best Small Towns, is a superb area that offers small town charm while still being close to major attractions. The Gates of St. John is just a few minutes west of Crown Point’s historic downtown, 20 minutes from the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and a short commute to the south suburbs as well as downtown Chicago with easy access to IL I-394.
Another huge plus that puts a smile on the face of potential home buyers is Indiana’s 1% property tax caps and excellent community services. The Gates of St. John is home to a distinguished K-8 parochial school and the public schools are well-regarded in the state of Indiana.
The Windmill at 10303 Silver Maple Drive in St. John, is priced at $349,900 and is ready to welcome you home.
