A two-year-old home in Naperville has hit the market with an asking price more than triple the record sale price of a publicly listed house in DuPage County.

The 15,450-square-foot home was built on a little bit more than an acre of land on Van Buren Avenue, on the western edge of downtown Naperville, Crain’s Chicago Business reported. The seller, Jane Brooks, said she and her late husband, Don Brooks, intended to host events and fundraisers as well as living there.

At $14.99 million, the home is more than double the next-highest county listing of just below $7 million. DuPage’s most expensive home sold for $7.7 million in Hinsdale, the nation’s costliest real estate market. The Brooks listing is the eighth-priciest in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Designed by Charles Cook Architectural Studio with interiors by Tracy Hickman, both based in Chicago, the five-bedroom home has a stone and stucco facade with steep pitched roofs, fireplaces, a gym and a studio. It also has a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and fire pit.

Just two publicly listed Naperville homes sold for more than $4 million since 2008. The first went for $4.95 million 13 years ago and the second in June 2020 for $4.75 million. Others may have sold for higher prices without going on the public market.
