Park Ave

Sold

After living in, and coming to love the Randall Park neighborhood of Downers Grove this client didn't necessarily want to leave. But they got the itch to build and customize their dream home. When a dream lot across from Randall Park came on the market they knew it was the one for them. After reaching out to friends and neighbors for referrals they came to Oakley to discuss their vision which led us designing this inviting home for them. The house has a fresh dose of southern charm. The wide, expansive brick porch, triple dormers and lower eave line all create a cozy, casual sophistication - and provides the perfect vantage point for the park views. 

Linscott Ave

Sold

About 6 months after finishing a separate project in Downers Grove, one of that client's family members approached us about their own custom build. Inspired by their vision for a modern Tudor, we set about designing the architectural plans for their home. This homes' refined exterior is composed of painted brick and Hardie plank lap siding. The addition of curved rooflines, doors and windows add great visual interest while the dramatic two story window floods this home's entry with natural light. Inside, rooms were carefully designed with the homeowner's practical use in mind; a desk nook tucked away, an oversized dining space in lieu of a more formal dining room, and a family room with french doors opening to the backyard.

Grand Ave

Sold

There's a reason we've built 4 homes on Grand Ave - it's a gorgeous street, filled with mature trees and comprised of many desirable deep lots. It's the perfect combination of being close to your neighbors/town/train/school, but still having the oasis of a private backyard to retreat to. It was precisely this that made our clients, Downers Grove residents, jump on this property when it became available. Having lived a block away for several years, they knew the Randall Park neighborhood was too good to leave, but this opportunity allowed them to build their dream home while expanding their outdoor space. We worked with them to maximize options for outdoor living with a screened in porch and a deck off the backyard-facing master suite.
