AT A GLANCE
Located just 47 miles from Chicago, the landscape of Crown Point, Ind., is a part of the Valparaiso Moraine, a band of high, hilly terrain made up of glacial till and sand. In August, Crown Point hosts the Lake County Fair, the second-largest fair in the state of Indiana. In March of last year, Universal Studios filmed parts of the upcoming movie “Public Enemies” at the former county jail facility from which John Dillinger escaped in 1934. Once the seat of Lake County in Indiana, the old courthouse is known as “Grand Old Lady,” and has now been transformed into a collection of shops and restaurants.
This custom-built home sits on a one-acre lot and provides country views with city amenities. The 3,385-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a 28-by-25-foot upper level bonus room wired for surround sound. There is an oversized gourmet kitchen with granite and maple cabinets, a formal dining room and a home office or living room with hardwood floors. The master bathroom has heated floors, granite and a double sink vanity. The basement is roughed in for an additional bathroom, and the fenced yard has an irrigation system. There is also a covered porch and a three-and-one-half-car garage.
