Property Description

LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE! REIMAGINED AND REDESIGNED by NAPERVILLE’S TOP DESIGNER on a private .41 acre lot with wooded views in the prestigious Porter/Sylvan Circle area of Naperville. Masterfully expanded and renovated by Graefenhain Designs with nearly $500,000 in improvements, this home offers a modern and fun aesthetic that is all about creating warm and welcoming spaces that are functional as well as beautiful. The transformation of this home began in 2008 with an addition that opened and expanded the 1st and 2nd levels adding a 3RD CAR GARAGE STALL, new family room, main floor bonus room (currently used as an art studio), 2nd mud room, and a 2nd floor lounge, and new hardwood flooring. All major systems including a 40 year roof, triple pane windows and 2 new high efficiency HVAC systems were added in 2008-2009; the kitchen, baths and laundry were gut remodeled with timeless finishes in 2010-2012. As you approach the home you are greeted by an inviting front patio that offers covered and open seating and is surrounded by gardens offering 4 season interest. Step inside and you find hardwood flooring that flows throughout the main level, 9+ foot ceilings, 3 fireplaces, large windows that bring in abundant natural light, and an open floor plan where each room flows seamlessly into the next. An extensive use of natural elements lends an organic feel and connects the outside to the interior. An EXPANSIVE KITCHEN built for entertaining with cooking and secondary serving area… modern, flat front custom cabinetry with lighted art glass uppers, waterfall quartz top, center island with glass pendant lights, and convenient open shelving. The cooking center features PROFESSIONAL APPLIANCES including Wolf 36 inch 5-burner gas cooktop, Bosch dishwasher, double wall ovens, undercounter microwave oven, and single bowl stainless steel sink. The serving area is fully equipped with a 2nd dishwasher & sink, plus a GE Monogram beverage center with glass door. The kitchen opens to a casual dining area with fireplace, and vaulted family room with window seat storage and views of the patio and yard. Behind the family room is a bonus room with double closet (currently used as art studio). A private front study, inviting living room with fireplace opening to a light filled dining room, laundry room with CUSTOM BUILT-IN CABINETS, mudroom with ample closet and exposed brick, powder room with custom vanity, marble counter & pendant lights complete the main level. As you move upstairs you will find 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and a lounge. The master bedroom offers a romantic fireplace, walk in closet with built-in cabinetry and access to the upper deck. Luxuriate in a master bath that speaks to your modern sensibilities…slipper tub, ivory Travertine floors, large walk-in shower and custom vanity. The three additional bedrooms are generously sized with one bedroom with an ensuite bath and a 2nd floor lounge. Finished basement with radiant heated floor & new carpet. Step outside and take in the professional landscaping from the "old English" brick patio and firepit overlooking the large yard. Sylvan Circle area is filled with a collection of Naperville’s finest homes. Perched high on a hill with large, wooded lots this neighborhood values outdoor living and entertaining at its best. Here you’re in the center of town with no traffic concerns, close to the college, public and private schools, including nationally ranked Naperville 203 schools. Vibrant downtown Naperville is an easy 15 minute walk, (20 minutes to the train) or take the Tuk-Tuk for a $2 ride into town. STUNNING!
