Newport Cove's Marina

New American Homes is selling more than houses at Newport Cove, its waterfront development near Antioch on the Chain O’ Lakes.  The company also is marketing a lifestyle.  “Although buyers like the coastal-style architecture and custom details of our homes,“ said developer Susanne Tauke,  “what really interests them is our waterfront – the private marina and 1,800 feet of shoreline.”

The buyers are attracted to the community’s recreational opportunities – fishing and boating in the summer; snowmobiling, ice fishing and cross-country skiing in the winter.   “When I ask our residents why they bought at Newport, each says the same thing:  They wanted a home that their kids, grandkids or friends would like to visit – they wanted their primary home to be a vacation home,” Tauke added.  Homes at Newport are clustered into three price ranges:  the maintenance-free cottages start at $325,000; estate homes in the $400,000s and waterfront custom homes in the $700,000s.

Just one row off the water, Newport Cove’s 15 estate homesites offer a more affordable waterfront community option. A variety of site configurations will accommodate seacoast-style homes form 2,200 to 3,500 square feet. Some sites are suitable for look-out or walkout lower levels. Walking and golf cart paths connect residents with the waterfront. Newport Cove’s approved custom builders are ready to assist you in building your estate home.

New American Homes is headquartered in Hawthorn Woods, Illinois, in The Commons office complex. Their in-house staff handles marketing, product selection and accounting. Their field staff manages and schedules the construction.  New American Homes has a field staff at every job site every day to manage their subcontractors while they are working.  Their employees are some of the best in the home building business and share the company’s commitment to quality and determined to offer the highest quality workmanship, and guarantee their homes will have the same high quality as their beautiful models.  New American Homes stand behind their new homes, offering minimum one-year and maximum 50-year warranties on products and workmanship.
