Active (59 Days)


Up a hill from a quiet, maple lined road lies a peacefully secluded 8.5 acre country estate beyond comparison. This historic Oswego property, Oakberry Farm dates back to 1868 as a large dairy farm occupying this estate and what later became the neighboring luxury subdivision, Grove Estates. Today, Oakberry features two fully renovated homes and 5 outbuildings tucked back into a private forest filled with hardwood giants, several older than the farm itself. Both homes were fully renovated with energy-efficient, long-term ownership in mind but without compromise of the original architecture and character that sets them apart from all others. The main home is a stunning Victorian featuring 5 beds, 2 fully renovated bathrooms, totaling 2,880 SF. No project was left unfinished as all big-ticket items are either brand new or recently addressed. Brand new roof & gutters, two A/C units, windows, new kitchen w/ all stainless appliances & walk-in pantry, two fully updated bathrooms, refinished plank hardwood floors, plush carpeting in living rooms and stairway, new doors, new lighting, etc. Multiple coats of paint inside and out. The main level features 10' ceilings, original built-ins, white trim, and an original marble fireplace beneath an incredible vintage mirror. The main floor office could be used as a first floor bedroom with full bathroom adjoining. Spacious and dry basement with poured concrete floors and access from inside and outside the home. Enjoy private views of the woods from the north, east, and south sides of the home. This home is an absolute masterpiece. The second home, The Barn Cottage, is a brilliant home in it's own right. Perfect as a multi-generational arrangement, guest home, or short-term rental, the 2 bed, 1 bath, 1373 SF timber frame barn home conversion was originally completed in the 1980's but renovated in 2022. Brand new super-efficient LP siding comes with a 30-year paint warranty. All new windows, soffits, and gutters. All new counter tops, microwave, and dishwasher. An antique department store display case was rebuilt as a huge island with seating and plenty of storage. Beautiful pine flooring was refinished with 4 coats of urethane. Take the curved staircase lined in rustic barnwood upward to find a spa quality bathroom with a stunning custom tile shower. Both bedrooms have exposed hand hewn timbers on full display. The grounds underwent radical transformation with preventative tree pruning and removals completed everywhere necessary. An expansive brick sidewalk wraps around the west and south side of the main home. Wooded trails offer peaceful walks through a nature lovers paradise. The outbuildings can serve a number of functions including any AG related uses, home offices, workshops, etc. Get creative! Grow your own food in the greenhouse. Enjoy everything that comes with owning rural land without compromising on a quick drive to Oswego, Plainfield, and Naperville. This is a once in a lifetime type property. Don't miss it!
