PRIVATE AND PRISTINE! - PARADISE LAKE HOME IN COAL CITY, IL

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Joliet - Paradise Lakes.

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Baths Lake Home With Clean Beach And Excellent Fishing!

Looking for a private getaway close to the Chicago chaos?Look no further than this beautiful lake home set on 65 acres, north of Coal City, IL. Home is located 50 miles south of Chicago metro and is a perfect weeklong or weekend getaway with family and friends. This 4800 square foot house is situated on an 8 acre-owner owned-private, fully stocked lake with 250 feet of seawall and beach area. Lake is crystal clear and beach provides for a perfect afternoon of family fun.

The home was built in 2006 and includes the following:4 bedrooms-master (king size bed) with full bath, 2 upstairs bedrooms (full bath) and 1 walkout basement bedroom with full bath, full kitchen with breakfast island, dining room, 2 family rooms, 2 fireplaces, upstairs bar and game room, deck overlooking lake, basement game room and walkout to stamped concrete patio. Huge, symmetrical backyard, perfect for volleyball, badminton, football, frisbee etc.

Wildlife, wildlife,wildlife! Turkey, deer, ducks and bald eagles are common daily sights. The 8 acre, former strip mine lake has excellent fishing for bass, bluegills, crappies, and catfish. Walleyes are present, but requires a patient/persistent angler to lure them from the depths. A concrete boat launch is available for anglers wishing to bring their own boat (10 horse max). Truly a fisherman's paradise!

This property has something for everyone and is truly a paradise property to experience with family and friends!

Richard Scheer purchased this house in 1999

Why Richard Scheer chose Joliet

I bought the raw land in 1999. Actually, I was just driving around looking for a large parcel to buy and ultimately build a weekend getaway. I saw a for sale sign and closed on the land in 30 days. It was love at first sight. I knew the area well, as my father has a farm ten minutes away and spent my weekends as a kid 'on the farm'. My family loves everything about our property from the great fishing/swimming/beaching in the crystal clear strip mine lake to picking raspberries in the summer and abundant wildlife encounters year round. The peace and serenity upon arriving is profound. The property is 1 mile from the Kankakee river, Goose Lake Prairie State Park and Heidecke Lake all stupendous outdoor recreation areas. The close proximity to Chicago and surrounding area makes it an ideal family retreat without the travel hassles.

What makes this house unique

The gin clear lake, woods and surrounding area captured our hearts and compelled us to build a home.

All-Inclusive Vacation House

  • 4 out of 5
Stayed with my family for a week of fun and sun. Such a lovely, clean home with tons of space, beds, and things to do. Between the pool table, the tetherball court, swimming, boating, and Golden Tee, there is really no reason to ever leave the house!

Wonderful family weekend!

  • 5 out of 5
We were looking for a place where my parents, my family and my brother's family could get together for a long weekend and relax...this was perfect! The house was great, the lake was quiet and clear, with paddle boats and canoes, as well as great fishing. All the kids caught fish!! We also had ping pong, pool table and darts, as well as arcade games...plenty to do for everyone! Richard, the owner, was so accommodating, making sure we had everything we needed. A great stay! We are already checking our calendars for our next weekend trip!

Amazing!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved this place so much! The house is beautiful and very unique. The kids had lots of fun seeing all the stuffed game. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. But the property and lake are what have us dying to come back as soon as possible. The lake was super clean and perfect for swimming. The sandy beach was very fun for the kids and made it very easy to get the boats in and out, but there is also a seawall with a patio down by the lake with table and chairs. It was very relaxing to be able to sit under the umbrella in the mornings, drinking coffee, and enjoying the view. Very secluded with no one else around. The fishing was awesome and even the youngest ones at 5 and 8 had no problems catching plenty.
Thank you! We hope to be back again!

Wow what a home! Huge beautiful house with a ton of room. Our family stayed for 3 nights and most definitely ran out of time to fully enjoy the home. The lake was awesome we did a ton of fishing also used the paddle pontoon boat on site to fish on the water. Away from the city pretty much in a secluded wooded area just pure peace and quiet loved it! Also the trophy room full of zebra heads, different types of deer heads, a full size ostrich and a full size alligator was spectacular to see as well. Because honestly I don't think I'll ever be that close to an ostrich or an alligator. =) Also the arcade games in the basement made us feel like kids again reminding us of back in the day gaming. We all wished there was an outdoor hot tub or a swimming pool on the property because not everyone wanted to swim in the lake. Either way beautiful home recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from the city to enjoy some mother nature. Thank you Rick for allowing us staying in your home we will most definitely be in contact for future reservations!

Outstanding Experience!

  • 5 out of 5
This was the most well prepared home... our group was beyond satisfied with the amount of space we had for everyone.. there were parts of the home that were barely used! The home was well equipped with enough house supplies, we barely had to use the ones we brought!

The kids had an amazing time at the lake with the canoes, paddle boat, or just wading in the water!

The game rooms were an unbelievable sight, a must see!!!!
