The Sapphire Lake subdivision is a desirable, family oriented neighborhood located off GE Road near Towanda Barnes. It is across from the Hawthorne area which is saturated with some of Bloomington’s most luxurious homes. The homes in Sapphire Lake were built from the early 2000’s to present. There are a few remaining lots for those who wish to buy a new construction either on the lake or in its close proximity. Residents in this neighborhood attend the unit 5 schools. Children are sent to Benjamin Elementary, Evans Junior High, and Normal Community High School.
Entering the subdivision from Norma drive, you will likely first notice the traffic calming signs and young children playing in their yards with friends. In the warm months there are barbecues, birthdays, and driveway parties every night. As the weather cools, you will find families gathering around fire pits with pot luck dinners. The winter is no excuse for neighbors to lose touch, as the early mornings after a snowy night brings them together. Before many of its’ residents leave for work, most of the sidewalks and driveways have already been cleared by a select few!
Continuing south along Norma Drive will lead you to the beautiful lake where you will catch the most breath taking sunsets. This is a hot spot for evening walks, runs, or bicycle rides. Fishing is another favorite activity for the residents surrounding the lake. The lake homes are governed by the Sapphire Lake Association, who meet once monthly and can be reached at email@example.com.
The pride of the homeowners is evident as you look at the condition of each and every home. Families are happy to be there and grow the community. Perfectly manicured lawns and landscaping are a staple of the area. Many of the back yards have hosting areas that include patios, decks, pools, built in fire pits and outdoor cooking capabilities.

If you plan to visit, make sure that you take the time during the spring when all of the cherry blossom trees along the road are in full bloom. You will not be disappointed!
