Description

A team of visionaries collaborated with the owners to complete this artful interpretation of understated elegance in 2019. Charles Cook Architectural Design Studio, interior designer Tracy Hickman, Jeff Muellner Construction, O'Brien Custom Cabinetry, Apex Wood Flooring and many other local artisans and craftsmen contributed their talents to this magnificent stone manor, nestled amidst the private greenery of a large corner garden in downtown Naperville. The residence embodies a casual, comfortable style as clean lines and an open plan concept are balanced with warm authentic materials, including limestone and white oak floors, architectural hand-finished plaster walls, rich hand-hewn white oak beams, steel windows and doors, and a slate and galvanized steel roof. The interplay between rustic, vintage and architecturally refined elements within the home infuse the home with a sense of hospitality that can be felt as soon as you enter. Indoor/outdoor living has been brilliantly integrated into the home with a sunroom and a phantom screened-in porch and outdoor gas fireplace. Comforting warmth is furthered by two interior gas fireplaces - one located in the family room and open to the dining area/ kitchen and another located in the lower level great room. Sunlight bathes the home from all directions with a cupola above the stairwell where light travels into the home from above the second floor to the lower level. For the heart of the home, the centrally located kitchen presents a wide range of cooking, catering and entertainment opportunities. A cerused-white oak and an Old World painted custom finish on the kitchen and pantry cabinetry created exclusively by O'Brien give the home its signature modern-yet-rustic feel. Sub-Zero refrigerators, a Wolf range and a stunning 12 1/2' island with quartzite countertops elevate the entire kitchen space. Behind steel glass windows, the sunroom off of the dining area offers another intimate eating space with seating, entertainment area and bar. A well-positioned principal suite on the main level provides the ultimate private sanctuary with a boxed bay window overlooking the pool and an office, mere steps away. Two uniquely appointed half baths and a large laundry room with abundant storage completes the main level. A limestone staircase tucked behind the kitchen takes you up to the second floor principal suite, additional bedrooms, a spa room, an exercise room and the second floor laundry room. The impressive attention to detail continues from the first level to the second, as expressed by the architectural groined and vaulted ceiling in the long hallway. The lower level makes its introduction with a well-appointed wine cellar set at the bottom of the stairs behind steel glass double doors. A large entertainment room with a fireplace, kitchen area with dishwasher and storage, Sub-Zero refrigeration and freezer drawers provides a welcoming space for friends and family. Just beyond the residence, the private backyard has been transformed into a sophisticated outdoor living and entertaining space with a saltwater pool by Platinum Pools, custom studio and an outdoor gas fire pit with built-in seating. The choices of landscape materials by Hursthouse invite hummingbirds, butterflies and birds to 'dance' on the property. Every detail in this home has been carefully considered: all interior stone floors and the lower level wood floor are heated, along with the porch floor, outdoor entertainment stone area and driveway; the 4-car garages are also air-conditioned and heated. Even extra built-in storage on the porch for outdoor seat cushions has been seamlessly integrated. Two additional East parcels (58 x 166) and (62 x 166) are Zoned Transitional Use, which adds endless opportunities to the property. A new vision for living in Naperville.
