Enjoy peaceful, private moments in this beautiful Downers Grove escape; richly defined with its sensational cobblestone brick exterior and inviting wrap-around-porch!

The signature cobblestone fireplace will surely warm the hearts of all who pass its way! Screened French doors lead out to an entertaining haven! 2-tier composite deck (upper 34x20) includes a built-in energy efficient Hot Springs Spa (jets that deliver a powerful hydro-massage experience).
