Galena townhome description

This townhome is located in The Galena Territory on the 10th hole of the South Course. Golf right outside your door, and when you're finished...walk home. The home has one bedroom and one attached bathroom on each floor, and has been updated to create a relaxing, cozy retreat. This home has been wonderfully popular with 'girlfriend getaways', golfers, and families as well.

Designated by “Forbes Traveler” as one of the 10 prettiest towns in America, the town of Galena is a charming spot that holds dear to its historic roots yet engages and enjoys modern conveniences and modern living. On the banks of the Galena River, this town lies within a National Register Historic District and offers visitors a wealth of activities suitable for many different styles.

Our winter guests enjoy skiing, and Chestnut Mountain Resort is a 20 minute drive from this home. It boasts 19 ski runs and the largest all-terrain park in the Midwest. Ski or snowboard there, then enjoy your evenings by the fireplace, watching the 42” plasma TV, and sleeping soundly on the luxurious linens and the pillow top mattresses.

It's a 10 min drive to downtown Galena, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the historic town. Galena is rich in agriculture, and you’ll find no end to fresh food choices. Local growers gather at farmers markets and you can purchase jams, jellies, along with gourmet items.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: We bought our golf villa in 2009 because we have family members that live in the territory. We enjoy spending time here when we can. Galena is close to many attractions. Wineries, antiques, golf, skiing, shopping, dining, museums, historical attractions...more activities than one weekend can handle. Not to mention the fact that the home is located in the Galena Territory, in Eagle Ridge, on the golf course. In the Territory there are restaurants, a spa, a marina, and horse stables.

                      Why the Owner Chose Galena:
                      We chose to buy in Galena because of it's proximity to the Chicago area and because of the many attractions here. Galena has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment and a lot of variety. It's a very charming yet relaxing town. There are many things to do in Galena including hiking, shopping, sightseeing, wine tasting and of course golfing. The town is filled with quaint shops, coffeehouses and restaurants, as well as artisan shops.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
