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.
