The Gates of St. John Community is a pedestrian-friendly, multi-generational community on more than 700 acres with distinct, inter-connected neighborhoods featuring a tree-lined boulevard, walking and riding paths, water features, community fishing pond, green spaces, playgrounds and park facilities. Like the magnificent decorative gates for which it is named, The Gates of St. John is a community characterized by beauty, charm and tradition.

Approximately 1,100 platted lots in the 700-acre development are ready for the right home and family. Phillippe Builders homes are all independently inspected and certified according to HERS/RESNET energy-efficient home ratings. On average, Phillippe homes rate 62 overall (homes built since 2009).

Professional and health services, including Saint Anthony’s Healthcare/Outpatient Center and a variety of shopping options are just minutes away. Lake Central, Hanover and Crown Point Schools serve The Gates of St. John as well as a parochial school located in the heart of the neighborhood.

This multi-generational community offers homes for first time family buyers, move-up buyers, active-adult living and executives looking to custom build.

With an easy access commute to Chicago and Indiana tax incentives, it’s no wonder that St. John was voted by CNN Money Magazine ‘Top 100 Best Places to Live’ (2009).
