Swainson House at Serosun Farms (45W489 Berner Rd.)

LEED Gold Project

The Swainson House affords a rare combination of a rural agricultural lifestyle while maintaining luxury and access to the buzzing city excitement of Chicago.

Serosun Farms, where the Swainson House is situated, includes 114 homes distributed over open farm spaces, restored habitats, and a small commercial area for the community. The foundational concept of Serosun Farms is sustainability and health, with all participating homes required to meet guidelines in both areas.

This project has obtained a number of certifications including LEED-Gold/ Platinum, NAHB National Green Building Standard Emerald, and ENERGY STAR with Indoor airPLUS. From its wraparound porch and gourmet kitchen to its rain harvesting and drought tolerant native landscaping, the Swainson House asserts at every step of the design and construction process “luxury can be sustainable.”
