Chicago new home buyers looking for a place to enjoy the water and a small-town community feel should look no further than southwest suburban Heritage Harbor of Ottawa.  A unique community-neighborhood concept by Tom Heimsoth of Naperville, Heritage Harbor offers boating lovers the opportunity to live on the water, specifically the Illinois Waterway.

Perfect for down-sizers or families seeking to get away from it all with a second home, Heritage Harbor of Ottawa may be for you.  The development consists of single family cottages, row cottages, condominiums and ‘dockominiums’ (also known as boat slips).

Single family home buyers should enjoy the variety and efficiency of the ‘cottage’ floor plans and the cool marine styled front elevations.  The Lincoln floor plan offers 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with a loft room.  The front of the home features a huge wrap-around porch and includes a large back deck.   Most plans have a cool third level 9′-6″ x 8′-8″ room aptly named the ‘Crow’s Nest’ that is accessed via a ‘Ships Ladder’.   The total square footage amounts to 2,022 square feet.  Most sites will have a view of the water and some will reside right along the harbor or river.

The scale of the Heritage Harbor planned community is quite impressive in that it will appear as a little river town all to itself complete with a hotel, yacht club, marina, shops, parkland and nine separate residential grouped areas located just east of downtown Ottawa.
