Casual sophistication and timeless style are the hallmarks of this gracefully presented stone manor in Hinsdale. Situated on an acclaimed historic brick street, the property offers the perfect blend of city and suburban living, where you can walk to everything yet still enjoy your space and privacy.
Built by Kenna Builders and designed by architect Richard Olsen of G.O. Architectural Design in 2017, this 10,815 square-foot “smart home” is a testament to thoughtful design, fine craftsmanship, exquisite detailing and class at every level. It’s a place of undeniable warmth and openness, where upscale living and entertaining are fostered with a modern and open floorplan.
The rich stone exterior and slate roof make a statement of enduring elegance as you first encounter the manor. The interiors strike a similar sophisticated tone. Every room, every detail of the residence has been meticulously planned and flawlessly executed in an elegant transitional-meets-Patina style that looks like it belongs on the pages of Architectural Digest or Elle DECOR. A designer gourmet kitchen, complete with a large center island and luxury appliances such as a Gaggenau full surface induction cooktop, three Sub-Zero Refrigerator Towers, six Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers, Sub-Zero wine fridge, two Wolf double ovens, two Gaggenau steam ovens, GE microwave and two Bosch Dishwashers, opens to the living room, dining room and breakfast nook overlooking the backyard. A butler’s pantry and adjacent catering kitchen make it ideal for hosting large gatherings. Watson Smith engineered hardwood floors and Obrien Harris cabinetry throughout the home contribute to the home’s luxurious yet inviting atmosphere. A large family room, mudroom, office, kids’ workspace and sunroom with doors that slide completely open to an outdoor patio for an indoor/outdoor feel are among the many touches that make this home unique.
An elevator unites all three levels. Five bedrooms round out the second floor, each offering its own sense of privacy. A luxurious owner’s suite resembles a five-star hotel, with a fireplace, a beautiful soaking tub, dual vanities, a huge walk-in steam shower and a luxury boutique-like walk-in closet. There is even potential for another bedroom or office above the garage.
In the basement, a lounge and theater space equipped with an HD Golf and Sports simulator provides endless fun for sports aficionados and people of all ages. This level also includes a fully equipped gym, indoor pool and adjacent lounge with doors that open to the outside —a rarity for Hinsdale. Equipped with a Riverflow swim training system and secure pool cover with code for safety, the indoor pool rivals the five-star pool at the Peninsula Chicago as it creates a current in the pool at various levels of intensity for swim training or just for fun every day of the year.
The design of this house is also further elevated by amenities and systems not necessarily seen, but felt. There is radiant heating on all lower-level floors, the sunroom, three baths and a garage. The Control/4 Smart Home system allows the homeowner to control lighting, security, AV, shades, HVAC, and the pool. Other technological advancements include a snowmelt system on driveway surfaces and main walkways, central A/C with 10 separate zones for heating and cooling, whole house UV water purification, whole house UV air purification and whole house surge protection and rain water management system. Beyond the house, the large 100 x 339 lot provides lush landscaping and flat lawn — perfect for play or hosting future outdoor parties. The manor is just a short walk to town, the train and Hinsdale’s acclaimed schools. From inside to out, this property is a true celebration of all the things we value most in life: family, love, space, style and that feeling of luxury we get when we finally arrive home.
