Covington Knolls in Lemont Offers Small-Town Atmosphere


Nestled among the bluffs of the Des Plaines River Valley, Covington Knolls in the historic village of Lemont provides today's home buyers with a charming small-town atmosphere.

Being developed by Gallagher & Henry, Inc., Covington Knolls offers homes designed to meet the needs of a variety of home buyers. The community includes 31 luxury town houses during the first phase of construction, priced from $173,400 to $187,500 as well as 444 luxury single-family homes, priced from $203,900 to $284,830.

"Plans call for I-355 to be extended to I-80 in the next few years, and when that extension takes place, an exit at 127th Street provide easy access for residents of Covington Knolls. "

Lemont provides a family-oriented environment with outstanding schools, recreational facilities and parks and a quiet atmosphere that is becoming increasingly difficult to find," said Gallagher. "The area surrounding Lemont is known for its picturesque forest preserves, and horseback riding stables and golf courses, including well-known Cog Hill Golf Course's Dubsdread, are plentiful in the area."

The Lemont Park District includes 100 acres of recreational land with more than 450 athletic, cultural and educational programs. …
