We are looking forward to sharing the new projects we have in the works this year in the coming weeks, but today we’re sharing a home tour of a fan favorite build of 2021. If you follow our social channels, you’ll likely remember seeing a few sneak peeks of a home we finished in Naperville last year. The limewashed brick exterior was our most liked post of the year, and we’re excited to unveil the elevated interior of this home now that our clients have moved in and made it their own.
INTRODUCING BENTON AVENUE
This casual-traditional home’s stately exterior takes full advantage of the expansive lot size. The limewash finish provides a perfect contrast to the black trim, and we love the distinctive details of the parapet gable and limestone accents. The entry couldn’t be more inviting, featuring a grand double door coupled with columns and oversized windows on either side.
We promised this home’s interior wouldn’t disappoint, and we think this first glance proves it. A striking floor-to-ceiling marble fireplace makes a statement as the focal point of the family room.
Wishing for more marble? We’ve got you covered with this swoon-worthy powder room. Open the pocket doors off of the family room and you’ll find a sweet study space, just the spot for finishing up homework before dinner.
We fell for these custom built-in bookshelves in planning stages and could not wait to see them finished and styled. This office was designed with a private side porch, providing a convenient retreat to step outside and take a break from work from home life.
The elegant kitchen pairs sleek ebony-stained oak cabinetry with quartz countertops. A full-slab backsplash and custom hood anchor the space, but if you peek around the corner you’ll see they’re also hiding a practical scullery.
The first floor of this home is complete with a sun-drenched breakfast nook overlooking the pool. There’s also a chic formal living room featuring a dramatic wet bar with (you guessed it!) more gorgeous stone.
On the second floor of this home, you’ll find 4 spacious bedrooms including this sophisticated master suite.
A show-stopping feature of this home is the basement bar’s glass-encased wine closet.
Featuring a sport court, golf simulator, theater room, and exercise room, the basement is a perfect match for this active family’s many interests.
We’ll wrap this tour with a view that reminds us of days not filled with snow. This backyard (and adjacent pool house!) will be home to countless pool parties and we can’t wait for this family to get to jump in this year!

We hope you enjoyed watching this home come to life from project kickoff to home tour. We've recently broken ground on new projects in Hinsdale, Elmhurst, and Naperville which we look forward to sharing with you soon.
