Loch Lomond

Inspired by the Irish landmark, this gem of a neighborhood can easily be mistaken for a resort or holiday destination. Its origins stem from the massive man-made lake at the heart of the area. Over the years, development has thrived on the land surrounding the lake, and today Loch Lomond one of the most sought-after private neighborhoods in Mundelein.
