Located in one of the most coveted locations in town set on a spectacular, private lot directly across the street from Pierce Downer Elementary School and only a short walk from Herrick Middle School and top rated Downers Grove North High School, this home is one of a kind. Set on almost a half-acre lot, this mostly brick home is completely private from all sides. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail on the large brick paver patio that extends the length of the home with a secluded feel you simply cannot find elsewhere. The unique open concept floor plan was also designed with pockets of privacy with plenty of space to spread out, making for ease of living. The sunny kitchen with eating area flows into the two separate family room areas with soaring heights, custom made mid century modern wall to wall entertainment center, and a floor to ceiling brick fireplace. Bring the outside in with the wall of windows and doors extending the length of the kitchen and family rooms. A spacious third living room has a faux fireplace and there are sparkling light fixtures throughout adding to the space and feel you desire. Relax in the main bedroom suite with huge closets on a private wing of the second floor that is separate yet still readily accessible to the other three bedrooms. The lower level recreation room provides space for fun and games. You also get the added bonus of a loft space separating the bedrooms, a large entry way for all your gear, and a huge first floor laundry room/office space. This exquisite home was built with thoughtful planning and placement with environmental considerations well ahead of its time. Placement of the home on this lot takes full advantage of the seasons and is considered a passive solar home. Professionally landscaped. Walk to all schools, train, and town. A stunning, private home located in one of the best locations in Downers - truly priceless!
