While the home presents itself like it’s on vast acreage in America’s southern states, this home is actually situated on a choice interior lot in southeast Hinsdale.
The 100×200 lot is the ideal setting for this colonial farmhouse. Masterfully built by Kenna Builders, it features a long-reaching wrap-around front porch and side-load three-car garage. The screened-in back porch has terrific sightlines of the secluded and well-manicured backyard. The home’s landscaping is strategic, but feels natural—as if it has always been there.
The exterior is just a sneak peek of the magnificence. Inside, you’ll experience exquisite millwork throughout and the duality of large, open living with over 4,800 sq ft paired with the warmth and coziness of the farmhouse chic essence. The home is perfectly suited for entertaining and, also, for everyday comfort, like working from home or remote schooling. Traditional, structurally strong true divided light windows filter in plenty of natural light while also meeting modern energy standards.
The interior, particularly the kitchen, exudes charm and character through the repurposing of 17th and 18th century English, Irish, Italian, and French furniture. Artisan workers meticulously reconstituted beautifully crafted furniture pieces into stylish yet functional permanent fixtures in the home. What was once an English cobbler’s bench is now the kitchen island. A modern cabinet repurposed from an Irish ice box provides an extraordinarily deep and useful storage space.
The home has 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and a fully-finished basement—smartly finished featuring a theater area, game room, and a wet bar. Your own gym means you have your own membership without leaving your home. The master wing features its own private laundry and a luxurious ensuite with stand-alone soaker tub.
Perfectly equipped to satisfy a growing family, the home’s location provides security and top-rated schools, with just a short walk to blue ribbon Oak Elementary School/Preschool.
