Ten-foot ceilings will be found throughout the home and the kitchen will include custom cabinets, quartz countertops and a pro-Bluestar range.    

 “Families from Naperville, Oak Brook, Hinsdale and Oswego have purchased homesites at Pinnacle Pointe,” Alexander said.  “They appreciate creating their own custom oasis while knowing that they can enjoy their vacation home a little more than an hour from home.  With telecommuting and e-learning in full swing, many buyers are spending more time at their vacation homes than they had in years past.”
