The Chapman Lakes real estate market is focused on properties situated along the shoreline of Big Chapman Lake and Little Chapman Lake. These spring-fed lakes are located just five miles from Warsaw, so residents can easily commute to the city for work, entertainment and shopping. Of course, you may not want to venture too far from home when you have the spectacular lake views outside your window and free time to spend out on the water.
Big Chapman Lake is slightly north of Little Chapman Lake, and they are connected by a channel. The big lake features more than 48,000 feet of shoreline and is cleared for a variety of water sports and boating adventures, and the smaller lake features less than 30,000 feet of shoreline.
There are more than 700 residential properties along the shoreline of both lakes combined, and the majority of the residents live in their homes year round. This makes the living environment of Chapman Lake a bit different from many of the larger lakes, including the Barbee Chain of Lakes and Winona Lake. Those lakes feature many vacation homes and are popular attractions for tourists. While the Chapman Lakes are considered among the best Indiana lakes, they feel more like a neighborhood than a resort.
You can find Chapman Lakes real estate directly on both bodies of water as well as long side channels. There are still some building lots available if you prefer to design and build your own home, and many of these lots are already cleared and ready to start construction. If you want to get out on the lake as soon as possible, there are also many move-in ready homes waiting for your arrival.
Some features that you may look for when shopping the Chapman Lakes real estate market include direct access to the lake, private docks or piers, seawalls and spacious backyards with custom landscaping. There are also some housing developments that enrich the lakeside environment with nearby running streams and mature trees.
The water quality in the Chapman Lakes is exceptional, thanks to wetlands that cover more than 240 acres along the shoreline. Local residents also take pride in their waterways and come together to ensure that the water remains clean and beautiful year round.
Big Chapman Lake does permit all forms of water sports, including water skiing and power boating. Little Chapman Lake is more limited due to its smaller size, but all residents can use the two-way channel to transition between the lakes. One of the most popular activities for locals as well as visitors is fishing, thanks to the abundance of bluegill and bass.
