Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Bob and I moved to The Galena Territory from Naperville with our son, Bret, when he was in second grade. Because we fell in love with The Territory on our first visit we bought a lot that day, later we built our summer home here.

Why the Owner Chose The Galena Territory, Guilford Township, IL, USA:
We first build our home on the lot next door and then bought this lot and built our dream home. It is one of the most beautiful lots in The Territory.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love that TIMBER RIDGE is in the heart of the RESORT CORE but so private. In spring hundreds of daffodils bloom on either side of the driveway. Birds are always singing and it is fun to see the squirrels jumping from tree to tree. We also see deer and the fawns are so cute with their spots.
