Favorite room in the house: With a beautiful wooded backyard, we love being able to balance outdoor and indoor living and find ourselves on the covered veranda at every opportunity, even during thunderstorms!

nmag1116_home_livingroom_800pxFavorite thing about Naperville: Naperville is a great place to raise a family. We love being within a short walk to all of downtown Naperville’s many amenities while still having an almost rural location with over an acre.
