Lodge Life

Appears in the October 2021 issue.

As the founding broker of the Naperville Compass office, Alice Chin has seen and sold thousands of homes in the west suburbs—but there is something special about her current Jefferson Estates listing. “I’ve been in it multiple times, but every time I notice something else—a good surprise. I can’t say that about many homes.” A visit to the Claremont Court residence feels like stepping into a private retreat—in fact, the homeowners’ inspiration when they built the home was the Four Seasons resort in British Columbia. “The owners spend a lot of time in Whistler as a family since they are from Canada,” says Chin. “There is just a calmness with the home. It feels and exudes likes a spa.” In addition to the wood and stone materials used to give it a lodge-like feel, the house features an in-ground saltwater pool with a hot tub, fireplace, and waterfall—the elements of a true outdoor retreat. Five of the home’s seven bedrooms are on the second story, and the basement includes a bedroom, full bath, wet bar, and wine room. A cul-de-sac location with mature landscaping surrounding the one-third-acre lot offers an abundance of privacy. $2,095,000 | 320 Claremont Ct., Naperville
