The Thousand Islands region has to be one of the most beautiful places in North America. Dark Island, just one of those islands, is situated on the St. Lawrence River, close to the border of the USA and Canada. It is an island with more than 100 years of history. At the turn of the 20th century, Commodore Frederick G. Bourne, former director of the Singer Sewing Machine Co., commissioned the construction of a hunting lodge on the island. He appointed well-known architect Ernest Flagg, who took inspiration from the English castle described in Sir Walter Scott's Woodstock. Even the clock tower with chimes has been replicated. A certain mystery surrounds the castle on Dark Island - with its underground passageways and evocative paintings. Singer Castle is one of the very few historical castles in the United States.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
