I am planning to buy a house in Chesterton since its close proximity to Shouthshore. I got good reviews about Chesterton High and overall town seems to have nice quiet environment. Can anyone please reccomend some neighborhoods? My range is 240K-275K...Also, does anyone have other opinions about Chesterton?
Thanks.

In my other post (how do you edit???) I said my friends moved to Valpo, but it is Chesterton. They live in Coffee Creek, right near a nature preserve. Beautiful area!

I don't know much about the neighborhoods in Chesterton but the downtown is really cute and the surrounding neighborhood looks nice. I recently moved to north Valpo and we often go there for breakfast. I also take the South shore everyday to work. Good luck finding a place.

Default Villages of Sand Creek

Thank you everyone for the reply...I have looked at houses at Villages of Sand Creek and some close to Chesterton High. I like the Villages of Sand Creek so far since it looks likes a matured neighborhood and its close proximity to highways and south shore is a plus. I will keep you posted.

Whats your opinion about southshore in terms of commuting time and efficiency specially in winter months? Thanks.

i live in chesterton and have for 7 years i go to the highschool and I would def agree we have a great school system and the town is def nice and peaceful. if you have any specific questions id be happy to answer them. btw it depends on what grade your kids are in when you decide what neighborhoods you move into. i can recommend different neighborhoods accordingly if you are looking for neighborhoods and have kids in grade or intermediate(5 & 6) i would def say find something in the Liberty Township area...you dont want them going to weschester intermediate school. so i would look at abercrombie or papillon

It's a pretty long commute. Doesn't bother me much since I love to read and usually nap in the morning. I believe it is a little over an hour and twenty minutes but it is late quite a bit in the winter. Especially when the weather is bad. We are in NE Valpo so our drive from the station is about 15 minutes. Door to door is probably 2 hours each way. I work pretty far from the downtown station though so have a long walk.
