One of a kind in Downers Grove. Stone and brick exterior with the highest level of construction. As soon as you pull up the long, winding paver driveway you are fully aware this is a special oasis with trees, plantings, and natural beauty surrounding you. Stepping through the front door of the residence you can see through to the rear of the home showcasing the stunning nature surrounding it. Gorgeous two-story windows. Open flowing floor plan with elegant formals. The chef's kitchen leads through the custom sliding glass doors to the pool room. The 2300 sq. ft. pool room was added on in 2007.

The room has a kitchenette, powder room with a separate shower room, its own commercial furnace with dehumidifier, a nine-foot deep diving board area, and an eight-person hot tub. The room is complete with resin rock flooring and beautiful stone walls. The walls were built with USG Durock to keep them humidity-free and the exquisite ceiling features tongue and groove-heavy timber. The pool/spa room was built to the same quality and craftsmanship as the rest of the home & blends seamlessly. Cozy, family room with stunning fireplace. First-floor and second-floor master suites. The first-floor master has a spa bath and walk-in closet. Stunning first-floor office with built-in shelving. First and second-floor laundry rooms.
