Gated. Private. Luxury.
The Continental boasts unparalleled natural beauty in a true private estate setting, only blocks from the conveniences of Saint John, the wealthiest community in Indiana, while just 3 miles from Illinois and 30 miles from downtown Chicago.
It is home to fifty-two lots located on over fifty-five acres of pristine natural woods and prairie with natural and man-made lakes and 50 feet of elevation change.
Lots are starting in the two-hundred and fifty thousands.
Saint Lawrence River
The Continental is composed of pristine forests, rolling hills, and natural lakes that sit atop the Saint Lawrence River Continental Divide. This Continental Divide in Indiana separates the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin from the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico watersheds.
The portion of the St. Lawrence River Basin that passes through The Continental Subdivision is referred to as the Muenich Pass. The northern lots of The Continental drain to the Atlantic Ocean by way of the Great Lakes and Saint Lawrence River. The southern lots of The Continental drain to the Gulf of Mexico by way of the Kankakee, Illinois, and Mississippi Rivers.
The Continental Divide is a ridge that separates stormwater flow towards Lake Michigan or the Gulf of Mexico, giving the neighborhood its name. This area, among Lake County's highest elevations, holds significant importance for the Muenich family, who have lived here for generations. The land intertwines with their rich history, allowing future residents to appreciate the family's legacy and the breathtaking surroundings.
