“With more and more people working from home, the market has exploded with buyers who can now work from anywhere,”
Sales have been brisk in the recently introduced Boat House neighborhood at Heritage Harbor Resort, where only seven low-maintenance, waterfront homes, each with a direct boat slip, remain for sale.
Less than 90 minutes west of Chicago in Ottawa’s Starved Rock Country, Heritage Harbor overlooks the Illinois River and is centered around the award-winning 152-slip marina with 32-acres of harbor. Boaters and water sport enthusiasts appreciate the 16-mile stretch of waterway between the Marseilles Lock and Starved Rock Lock and access to the Great Loop. The community also features the Red Dog Restaurant and Tiki Bar, Knot’s Landing sand beach and 3.2-mile Harbor Walk as well numerous neighborhood clubhouses and swimming pools. The Heritage Harbor activity director plans year-round events for residents and guests, including live music on weekends, crafts, cooking classes, tours, and the weekly, Saturday 5K walk and run.
“With more and more people working from home, the market has exploded with buyers who can now work from anywhere,” said Pierre Alexander, Heritage Harbor Resort Marketing Manager. “Buyers who once thought they didn’t have the time to justify a vacation home investment can now work from their Heritage Harbor home while enjoying all that is offered daily in this recreationally-rich area.”
