Join us for our St Charles IL Housewalk to raise funds for cancer patients and their families. 4 beautiful homes will be open to tour between 10am-2pm and 4-8pm. We ask that all participants park at Christ Community Church 820 Randall Rd South Elgin IL and take a trolley to each of the houses. 4 trolleys will be running a continuous route from the church to each of the 4 houses and back again. The first 100 people to tour each home will get gifts from the homeowners. Every registration allows Phil’s Friends to support a cancer patient for a year with a care package, monthly Cards of Hope and prayer. For more information on sponsorship opportunities and individual tickets contact Tia at email@example.com.
2455 Dunham Road
Situated on 8.5 acres, 2455 Dunham Rd, St. Charles is a private estate that brings home customization to an unprecedented level. At 19,000 square feet (includes 4,000 sq ft garage) this 6 bedroom, 9 bathroom 2018 new construction home, designed and built by The Timm Martin Company took years of planning and has intricate details at every turn. The original home situated on the property was originally owned by Delora Norris and was built in 1963. The owners tore down the home but before doing so had all of the exterior stone removed and reused it to build the gate at the front of their current driveway. Many things in the home were hand made by local wood craftsman, Wade Ellis out of West Chicago. The front door is solid walnut, the dining room table which is solid white oak was made from a tree that was cut down in order to build the house and is so heavy that the floor had to be structurally re-engineered to support the weight. The mantels on each side of the fireplace were also out of the same tree and hand hewn. He also made the ceiling in the sunroom out of alder wood, the walk in refrigerated cooler and wine cellar made out of an exotic hardwood called African Sapele, the salt cave out of cedar wood, the media console in the basement to house the tv projector out of walnut, the wine glass cabinet in the bar out of maple, the guitar case (housing a guitar signed by all of the members of Fleetwood Mac) is made out of Sapele – Bubinga an East Indian Rosewood and the kids playroom is made out of cedar wood. Foyer chairs designed by Christopher Guy called Le Jardin, are hand carved mahogany modeled after Coco Chanel’s famous Fleur de Camelia. Art in the dining room was collected during the owners trips through Italy. The wall at the end of the hallway on the 1st floor is made of metal tile. See if you can locate the secret door to the basement in the sunroom bookcase. The kitchen island and fridge are made from walnut and the countertops are natural quartzite. The fish tank in the living room is a 500 gallon saltwater tank. The cabinet hardware in the sunroom features Peridot’s which are both of the owner’s birthstone. The sunroom also has heated flooring. All of the furniture in the in-law suite is Tommy Bahama and the window treatments are hand woven in India and contains an ensuite with hardware made from mother of pearl. The second floor 4 bedrooms include a newly re-designed guest suite done by Anna Heck Lewis at Haven Interiors, 2 children’s rooms and the master suite which features a walk out balcony, marble fireplace, multiple Swarovski crystal chandeliers and a two story walk-in closet with sparkle carpet. The ensuite bathroom has his and hers toilets and heated flooring, wallpaper on the ceiling and semi-precious rose quartz countertop on the island as well as Swarovski crystal cabinet monogrammed hardware. The lower level customization is equally impressive with shelves in the hallway that are Badgley Mischka Home, radiant heated floors, the sauna room features a full spectrum infrared sauna in a Himalayan salt cave made from solid bricks of pink sea salt from Pakistan with a Halogenerator for medical grade halotherapy. The temperature controlled wine cellar holds 700 bottles and features slabs of semi-precious Agate, Amethyst and Turquoise. The bar counter top is made from crystal ice quartzite as well as Cambria Quartz, the cabinets are maple and there is a wine machine that uses Argon gas to seal and dispense wine making the wine bottle last for 90 days after being opened. The home has an elevator with ceramic tile floor and walnut paneling. The mature grounds are exquisitely landscaped with the lake as the centerpiece of this gem.
