Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

Why the Owner Chose Fox Lake, IL, USA:
As a kid growing up, I spent my summers just a few miles from here, on a very small lake. I swore to my self, then, that one day I would own a home large enough for all my family on a big lake nearby. This was and is my dream home. Evenings sitting on my deck and reliving my youth, being able to share the experience with others, and bringing family together in a beautiful big home make all the work that went into being able to share it with others, worthwhile.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
I love to sit right outside my door, out on my pier, with the kids. Here we fish for bass, perch, walleye, catfish and drum. We watch cormorants, hawks, and egrets play and show us up with their fishing ability.
