Modern Country

Tryon Farm is a sprawling historic landscape that has been transformed into a modern country escape for folks who want to live in wide-open spaces, while staying connected to Chicago, Lake Michigan and the beach.

Modern Country
  • Free range! A protected 120-acre landscape of lush woods, rising dunes and sunlit meadows surround the houses and the historic old farmstead. Get out there!

    The Landscape
  • A team of architects has created remarkably simplified, eco-friendly houses, adapted to each owner. Each captures the calm + beauty of the surrounding landscape.

  • The best of all worlds! Located just a mile-and-a-half from Lake Michigan beaches, 10 minutes from New Buffalo and only 60 minutes from downtown Chicago. Stay connected!

Common area maintenance and insurance are all taken care of by a commercial property manager directed by the Tryon Farm Homeowners Association.
