704 Countryside Drive | Wheaton

Jennifer Newsom

Keywords: 704 Countryside | Wheaton,Jennifer Newsom


One of Wheaton’s most coveted neighborhoods provides the ideal
setting for this fabulous custom built home. The premier location
affords the fortunate residents of Countryside Drive the advantage
of easy proximity to schools, and the shopping and dining of both
downtown Wheaton and Glen Ellyn. The lush landscaping and mature
trees embrace the handsome half acre property at every curve and
corner, delivering premier privacy and comfort.

Built to exacting details in 2009, the look is timeless classic, but the
concept is open and modern with soaring ceilings and light-filled
spaces punctuated with exceptional quality and attention to detail
throughout. Simply put, the home and its environs beautifully
accommodate the way we live today. Each of the appealing rooms are
all equally at home, whether celebrating grand scale formal events or
just an impromptu gathering of friends and family toasting a productive
week. Each room is fully wired for sound so you can cue just the right
playlist to set the mood. The richly appointed first floor office provides
the ideal work from home environment, and the perfectly orchestrated
mudroom with custom lockers and pet washing station is a welcome
calm amidst busy chaos.

The pristine chef’s kitchen is filled with high end finishes and luxe appliances including custom
cabinetry and millwork. Morning, noon or night, the large multi-level island acts as the perfect
ground zero for your active family as they navigate the day. The adjacent breakfast room is a
natural for casual family meals or a second cup of coffee over Zoom. A huge wraparound butler’s
pantry provides ample, organized storage. Exuding a bright and cozy ambiance, the great room
features a commanding coffered ceiling and expansive windows overlooking the rear grounds. A
wood-burning stone fireplace anchors the space and beckons all to gather in comfort and style.

The tranquil primary suite has been enhanced to reflect the universal appeal of retreat, relax, refresh. The bedroom
has custom coffered tray ceilings, and a cozy, firelit seating area that encourages you to linger just a little bit longer
with a good book or a game of backgammon. The luxe primary bath has all the accoutrements of your favorite spa,
while two enormous walk-in closets provide luxurious organized custom storage with ample dressing areas.

The second level also includes a convenient laundry room and three additional spacious family en suite bedrooms.
The large sitting room can accommodate all manner of activities including homework, crafts or play.

Recreation was most certainly not overlooked in the creation of this one of a kind home. The built-for-
fun lower level invites kids and adults of all ages to hang out and enjoy with a cozy firelit game room,
custom stone wet bar, 700+ bottle temperature controlled wine cellar equipped with custom wine
racks, a home theater room and home gym with full bath access. A spacious bedroom on this level
provides ideal guest or in-law quarters.

Continuing outside, the outdoor space is truly remarkable. Surrounded by professional landscaping,
this is your own private oasis to enjoy al fresco living. An expansive custom pavered brick and stone
patio features an outdoor kitchen with built in grill and beverage center and all season firepit. With
unparalleled living spaces indoors and out, this distinctive residence is the ideal place to call home.
