Space for All

Appears in the August 2021 issue.

Searching for more space for your brood? This 5,540-square-foot, four-level home on a corner lot has views of Cress Creek Country Club and all the comforts a growing family could want—from the four-car garage to the laundry suite with two washers and two dryers and a cubby-clad mudroom. Recently listed by Bernie Cobb of RE/MAX of Naperville, the five-bedroom home balances traditional details like wainscoting and crown molding with a modern open floor plan. The eye-catching stonework on the exterior of the home continues inside, where it covers several floor-to-ceiling fireplaces. “The stone is unique, hand-cut Pennsylvania granite,” Cobb says. Covered porches on the front and back of the house provide plenty of space for outdoor entertaining. Upstairs in the master suite, elegant details include shimmery subway tile and a crystal chandelier in the bathroom, as well as a walk-in closet with custom built-ins with glass-front doors and drawers aplenty. Downstairs, the finished basement features two storage rooms, an exercise room, bonus guest room and full bathroom. For sports fans, though, there’s one seriously unique feature: an indoor half basketball court for shooting hoops, no matter the weather. $1,795,000 | 1116 Briergate Dr., Naperville
