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.
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.

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.
