A Crown Jewel in Oak Brook- Recently Sold

Back in 2012, I had the pleasure of listing 15 Brighton Lane in the York Woods subdivision of Oak Brook, and I am thrilled to have had the pleasure of representing the Sellers in this recent sale of their home. This remarkable home exudes quality and grace and leaves an indelible impression. The quick sale, accompanied by multiple offers, was a testament to the allure of this residence and the right pricing strategy.

This custom home was designed by preeminent architect Jerome Cerny, a highly esteemed architect based in Lake Forest. Cerny was primarily known for his homes in the Lake Forest area and the North Shore of Chicago. His precise and impeccable attention to detail of the highest quality is one of the hallmarks of a Jerome Cerny-designed home.

The European charm of this home reflects the signature style of the home’s architect, Jerome Cerny, who was born in Chicago in 1901 and studied at the School of the Art Institute, the Armour Institute and Yale University. Early in his career, he worked for architects Benjamin Marshall and David Adler. 

This particular home, 15 Brighton Lane in Oak Brook, is located on perhaps the most lovely street in the subdivision and offers 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and 1 half bath. The living space is slightly over 3,700 sq. ft. This home lives like a ranch with two en-suite bedrooms on the first floor. Gorgeous hardwood floors, solid wood doors and unique large windows throughout. The updated kitchen features newer quartzite countertops and high-end appliances.


This exquisite gem in the York Woods subdivision in Oak Brook, this extraordinary residence epitomizes elegance and excellence, making it a perfect match for the most discerning buyer. It may be noted that Paul Butler, the founder of Oak Brook, personally admired this home and wrote a letter to the first owners stating that 15 Brighton Lane was the type of home that Butler envisioned for his beloved Oak Brook.
