Favorite room in this house: Kitchen and Sunroom. The kitchen is a wonderful place to cook and entertain, while the sunroom is our favorite room to sit and enjoy our coffee in the morning while listening to the waterfalls in the pond and the birds in the yard.

Favorite thing about Naperville: We love the people. The downtown offers wonderful amenities. We love the school system that offered an exceptional education to our children. Best of all is location. We are near all of the major expressways and just 30 miles from Chicago!

A family tradition: Celebrating Thanksgiving in our home with our family and friends. Our son was able to create a table for our Kitchen that seats 22 people and it has become a tradition to fill it with food and laughter.

Anything else: We love the peace and country feel of our neighborhood. We are surrounded by wonderful neighbors and a great community.
