Favorite Room in House
We enjoy all of the entertainment features of our home. We love the large, open floor plan and well-used chef’s kitchen and great room. Our in-home cinema is also a family favorite, especially around football season and the Super Bowl!

Family Tradition
A family tradition is to gather in our warm and inviting kitchen with family and friends. Although we have lived many places, we always try to bring our most important people together wherever we are. We host an annual Super Bowl party.

Favorite Thing About Naperville
We love the downtown area of Naperville. When we moved back to Naperville from Ireland, we decided to move within walking distance of the downtown area—it was our best decision. We love all the wonderful amenities that it offers us. We love the warmth and feel of the stores and restaurants in this amazing town.

A three-season room off the den opens to a private back lot with a paver patio and built-in Jenn-Aire grill. The gourmet kitchen features a butler pantry, granite counters, Viking commercial-grade range, and dual islands. The cherry-wood finished executive office has built-in bookcases. The master suite features a built-in flat screen TV, sitting area, large walk-in closet, wine refrigerator, private screened deck, and a bathroom with a steam shower and whirlpool tub. The second floor includes four bedrooms, two Jack-and-Jill bathrooms, a bonus game/sewing room, and laundry room. Other features include a lower-level media room with leather recliners, a lower-level wine cellar, a built-in entertainment center in the great room, and a three-car tandem garage.
