After relocating from the east coast a few years ago, this family fell in love with Downers Grove and the existing Oakley home that they had bought. Fast forward to 2016 and they decided it was time to bring the vision for their dream home to life. Having lived in an Oakley home themselves and after talking to past clients, this family chose to partner with us on their custom build. We helped them to identify a spectacular lot in the sought-after Pierce Downer neighborhood in northwest Downers Grove. This coastal-inspired, double-gable home shines with cedar shake, a welcoming front porch and an interior made for entertaining. The kitchen, family room and breakfast nook are positioned to maximize backyard views while the finished basement is built for fun including a theater room and bar. Classic details such as custom millwork and built ins complement the personalized design touches throughout this beautiful family home.
"There are no words to describe how happy we are to have chosen Oakley Home Builders to build the home of our dreams. Our home was completed 3 months ahead of time and the process was incredibly smooth - and fun!" - Carolina

Making classic architectural styles feel fresh is something we love to do. This is just what our client came to us wanting as they had a dream home vision of a vintage farmhouse with a modern touch. This new construction home, set on a deep lot full of trees, has a sweeping front porch and a screened in back porch complete with outdoor fireplace. The interior of this 5 bedroom, new-old farmhouse has many spaces and features that truly make it a custom home perfect for this young family; a library with fireplace, a perfectly-sized breakfast nook in the open kitchen, a cozy reading area upstairs and plenty of built-in window benches. With easy access to two Metra train stations, Whittier Elementary school a block away, and Patriot's Park down the street, this home is built to take advantage of some of the best that Downers Grove has to offer.
This beautiful Oakley Home Builders custom home is owned by long-time Downers Grove residents, returning to the area after living across the county for the last 10 years. Now empty nesters looking to downsize, the couple turned to Oakley Home Builders to build what is truly their dream home. The happy home owners have learned through their work with Oakley Home Builders that to downsize by no means having to compromise!
This home has a first floor master suite with two additional bedrooms adjoined by a full Jack and Jill bathroom on second floor. A gorgeous 18-foot high in great room features wood beams, while knotty alder doors are found throughout the home. The finishing touch is the stunning four-season room with fireplace, slate floors, cedar ceiling and beams. The cupola, copper roof bump out, and oval window add charm to the well-composed front facade
