Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Corporate executive (GM Nestle) based out of Chicago. I have owned the beach house for more than 10 years and have seen my kids grow up enjoying the beach and the Island flavor. The separate living areas are great for multi-generational family gatherings where folks need to get away from time to time. The layout of the house is ideal as the upstairs becomes the gathering location while the downstairs allows folks to get away as needed. We have enjoyed sharing our home with the various return guests. I'm available at 630-306-7946.
