Lemont house description

Located in Lemont, home of the famous Cog Hill Golf Course, this home, circa 1868, with over
4200 SF is now available to rent. The history of this home includes the Singer Family (Inventors of the Singer Sewing Machine). The Singer Mansion was recently featured in the popular 'Chicago Magazine' Real Estate Blog by Dennis Rodkin. It's deep rooted history has it's story told in the local Lemont History Museum and local log books. The stage is the late 1800's but with the modern convenience's of 2014.

The Conservatory is meant to be enjoyed year round and is perfect for your first cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening and bird watching all day long. The fireplaces are original to the home and the marble mantles were imported from Italy. The Cherub chandeliers are from France You can feel the history all around you and the charm is captivating.

There is a gazebo in the back yard for lots of photo opportunities.

All of the comfy bedrooms has it's own special and unique 4-poster bed(s).

The very large 2nd floor family room can easily support additional sleeping options and there are two twin beds available.

Whether you are a family or a group traveling together we can accommodate unique dining table and sleeping arrangements.

The Singer Mansion is a step back in time (for those who appreciate the workmanship of long ago), a place to rest at the end of a long day spent exploring our wonderful attractions in Downtown Chicago and/or a place for you to host your corporate event away from home.

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: As a licensed Real Estate Broker in Illinois for over 25 years, I have seen a lot of homes, but this one is truly unique, and we have found that owning this home has been such a gift. The history is so unique and the character is so abundant. We are in a place where we are lucky enough to be able to share our experience with others and have chosen to do so. We hope that when you come here to visit you will be taken back in time and your visit here will become a fun adventure in itself. The surroundings are beautiful the experience unique. In our years of travel we have seen many B&B's, private homes and Inns and would hope that this would live up to all of your expectations.

              Why the Owner Chose Lemont:
              Of course, the beautiful city of Chicago is a short distance away and the attractions there are endless. We are also minutes away from the world famous Cog Hill Golf Course where the BMW Golf Championship Tournament is played. A 30 minute drive from O'Hare and MIdway Airports.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our Atrium is a beautiful place to sit and relax. The squirrels and the birds are right outside all the windows and no mosquitoes! Our Library with it's French Chandelier is another place to get lost for a day. And our large kitchen offers a fun place to prepare a meal if you just want to stay in for the night.
