Description

Historic Hinsdale masterpiece on the market for the first time since its extraordinary designer restoration in 2015! The original Prairie School residence was designed by E.E. Roberts in 1908, and completely re-envisioned and rebuilt for contemporary living by John Eifler Architects in 2015, with award-winning interiors by Donna Mondi Interior Design. There is no other opportunity to own a home of such distinction and decadence in all of Hinsdale. A first place winner of the AISD Design Award in 2016, the residence has been profiled in The Wall Street Journal, Traditional Home, Mansion Global, Hinsdalean, and Hinsdale Living among many other publications. One step inside the approximately over 7,400 square-foot manse reveals why. Residing on almost a one-acre lot in premier Southeast Hinsdale and a short stroll from downtown, train and schools, the home represents a crowning achievement in design, craftsmanship and expression of the modern luxury lifestyle. The design team painstakingly re-created the stucco exterior from historical photos while incorporating contemporary twists, such as cedar roof shingles and copper gutters. An open, free-flowing floorplan was reconfigured to accommodate a modern family's needs while balancing formal and informal spaces as a grand foyer bisecting the living, family and dining rooms. All new HVAC, electrical, plumbing, mechanicals, kitchen, bathrooms and other rebuilt spaces were seamlessly integrated with details that were either meticulously restored or crafted by modern-day artisans to be consistent with the home's original architecture. Historic wood floors throughout, art glass designs by Altamira in Oak Park, intricately preserved newels, custom built-ins and millwork, exquisite ceiling work, six fireplaces, custom hand-tiled bathrooms and more are among the many hand-touched elements that communicate the passion with which this home was fashioned. Even the historic flooring from upstairs was brought downstairs into the addition - a testament to how far the current owners went to stay true to the home's architectural heritage! In the chef-designed kitchen, a La Cornue range and oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Thermador steam oven and instant hot/cold water are among the standouts as an oversized center island and adjoining breakfast room allow for casual moments of entertaining. Completing the main level are a gorgeous office, wet bar and mudroom. Four bedrooms and four baths reside upstairs, with a fifth bedroom offering an ideal setting for guests with a sitting room and ensuite bath on the very top floor. The owner's suite presents a soothing sanctuary, with a sitting area, dual walk-in closets, a fireplace, balcony and a custom-tiled bath with extra wardrobe and linen storage, dual sinks, shower and freestanding tub overlooking the backyard - all of which express an atmosphere of pure luxury and glamour. Meanwhile, an extraordinary lower level space has been outfitted with every amenity one could ever want: a generously sized rec room, stunning laundry room, gym, den, storage and full bath. Geothermal heating and cooling, as well as heated floors, a heated driveway, a heated 4-car garage with electric car charging plugs ensure both comfort and convenience throughout the seasons. A wonderful entertainer's house, the residence maintains effortless flow from indoors to out, where thoughtful landscape design entices one to enjoy a private fully fenced-in backyard adorned with a stone patio, pool, pool house with heated floors and a lush lawn. A truly singular Hinsdale property from beginning to end. Please see Feature Sheet in Additional Information for house details.
