235 Claremont Drive

5 Beds 9 Baths 9,179 Sq.Ft.


AS FEATURED IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, CHICAGO TRIBUNE AND NAPERVILLE MAGAZINE, this one-of-a-kind luxury home is a personal oasis in an A+ location. Only blocks from the Riverwalk, a mile to downtown, & 2 miles to the train, 235 Claremont Dr, with its nearly 10,000 sq ft of immaculate living space, is close to everything while still offering max privacy. Built by Charleston in 2014, no detail was overlooked in this elegant French Provincial-style home or the resort-style pool around which it wraps. Visually stunning with a waterfall, grotto, pergola, fire bowls and arched terraces, & fully-loaded with a hot tub, waterslide, basketball hoop, sun ledge and outdoor kitchen, this personal oasis is perfect for both entertaining groups and private family fun. From the time you walk up the bluestone path, past the manicured landscaping, & into the foyer with its 23' domed ceiling, 2-story spiral staircase, dueling chandeliers and direct view to the pool, this incredible home demands your attention & promises to impress. Just a few of the 1st floor features include 5" Walnut hardwood floors, 8' doors, 10' ceilings, and intricate trim throughout. The east wing is anchored by a family room that is the width of the entire house & has a 12' coffered ceiling, a stone hearth, & 3 beautiful sets of French doors that allow for this exquisite room to become one with the backyard oasis. The east wing also features a guest bedroom with en-suite bath and large wet bar with its own access to the pool. Next to the bar is a magnificent dining room with crystal chandelier, recessed lighting, & sliding doors that also open to the pool. In the west wing, there is a spacious kitchen with an oversized island, ample storage, top-end appliances, & its own access to the pool. The west wing also features a kitchen sunroom with fantastic views, a private office with fireplace, a mud room with built in desk, and a half bath with separate changing area and pool access. The 1st floor is completed by an oversized 4-car garage with epoxy flooring, built-in cabinets and extra storage space. Make your way down the spiral staircase & you will find a 200-bottle wine room, another large wet bar, a media room with stone fireplace, a craft room with built-in desk for two (which could also serve as an e-learning center), a billiards room, and a gym with closet (which is easily convertible into a 6th bedroom). The lower level also has 786 sq ft of unfinished space that is great for storage but also available for a golf simulator and putting green. Ascending to the top of the spiral staircase will lead you to the east wing of the 2nd floor where you will find the master suite. The focal point of the suite is a bedroom that spans the width of the home with a 13' vaulted ceiling, stone fireplace, and three sets of French doors that provide striking views and access to a balcony overlooking the pool. The suite also contains a dry bar with wine fridge, two spacious master closets with custom cabinetry, & a master bath with matching vanities, a free standing claw tub, & a large walk-in shower. The 2nd floor also features 3 additional large bedrooms with walk-in closets, en-suite baths and direct access to outside balconies, as well as a huge laundry room with walk-in closet & a beautiful 25' x 16' bonus room with 12' vaulted ceilings, gorgeous hardwood floors, two walk-in closets, and two sets of French doors that overlook the pool (this multi-purpose space is currently used as a dance studio but has limitless possibilities). Ascend another flight of stairs to the 3rd floor & you will find one final entertainment space known as the "Skybox." It's an 825 sq ft rec area w/ 9' ceilings, a wet bar, a half bath, and a set of French doors that open to a 3rd floor balcony that provides unmatched views of the pool & July 4th fireworks. 235 Claremont Drive is much more than a home - it is a one-of-a-kind experience for those who desire life's very best.
