Building Custom Homes in West Chicago

Airhart Construction is proud to be building new custom homes in West Chicago and throughout DuPage County since 1964. West Chicago is a quiet, welcoming community with an excellent school system, diverse housing, active business community and caring people that take pride in their hometown. Nationally known, Wheaton Academy, also calls West Chicago home.

Downtown West Chicago offers an array of thriving new restaurants, antique shops, boutiques, cafes, clothing stores and entertainment. For the necessities of life, shopping is nearby with both Charlestown Mall and Stratford square only a short drive away. West Chicago puts you in the middle of everything, yet still provides the quiet community you want to call home.

West Chicago offers an abundance of recreational activities for the whole family. The Park District has nine parks of over 228 acres and includes the Turtle Splash Family Aquatic Center. For golf enthusiasts, Prairie Landing is an 18-hole course set within rolling meadows and prairies and St. Andrews Country Club is a 36-hole course offering wooded scenic views. In addition, the Illinois Prairie Paths and the Great Western Trail run through West Chicago. Both offer scenic views of the West Chicago Prairie, a 350-acre preserve located in the heart of the city, as well as the substantial land holdings of the DuPage County Forest Preserve. The paths are frequently used for walking, biking, horseback riding and running.
