    South Elgin Real Estate

    The Chicago suburb of South Elgin is a typical Midwestern community that expanded out from a riverfront town center. There are more traditional neighborhoods closer in to the downtown and sprawling planned subdivisions on the outskirts of the village. No matter where you look, the homes in South Elgin rest on large, grass-covered lots surrounded by mature vegetation, thick tree perimeters and, in many cases, healthy forest preserves. Some properties lie directly on the banks of the Fox, affording a tranquil, private riverside retreat for the lucky homeowners who snag a coveted plot of land with water rights.

    The real estate in South Elgin's residential zones provides a wealth of housing types and price ranges. Detached single-family residences start in the low $100,000s and can reach to luxury market values. The higher-end homes are custom designed estates with prime locations next to protected woodland. Floor plans include all the top-notch amenities and finishes, and the lot may even feature an in-ground pool. The majority of South Elgin houses are two-, three- and four-bedroom places with an assortment of architectural styles and layouts. For the most part, detached homes up for sale here were built within the last 25 years and have attached garages, finished basements and nice interior appointments.

    There are several new construction townhome developments in South Elgin that offer buyers attractive alternatives to owning a private house with a yard to keep up. The living spaces are all modern and many complexes have great community amenities like clubhouses, swimming pools, tennis courts and access to the river. Cambridge Bluffs is a 70+ unit complex facing the Fox River; River Place Townhomes is a smaller development that also touts great views; and Raymond Square Townhomes is an intimate 21-unit subdivision on the east side of the Fox. There are a number of newly established residential areas that offer a mixture of townhouses and single-family homes, too.
