Property Description

Introducing a rare piece of history: The crowning glory of Hinsdale, this historic estate, has graced South County Line Road for over 100 years. Elegantly ensconced in an English garden setting amid mature trees and lush manicured grounds, the over 13,000-square-foot mansion (including the lower level) has a provenance that includes many of the movers and shakers of their era. The 1900-era mansion was originally designed by Joseph Corson Llewellyn, a prominent Chicago architect who studied under Rev Nathan C. Ricker. It has since undergone several restorations and architectural transformations over the decades. Today, the ivy-covered brick and columned exterior mostly reflects the guiding elegance of the Georgian Revival style - a favored architectural tradition of revered Chicago architect David Adler, who redesigned the home in the early 20th century. Adler's reverence for symmetry, balance, and proportion is expressed by classical porticoes, the introduction of uniform and handsomely proportioned Georgian-style sashes and a pedimented and fan-lit doorcase found at the main entrance. The mansion's main living spaces also pay homage to Adler's vision for a grand English-style country estate. An L-shaped plan reveals a grand reception room, a dramatic oval dining room at its center with an adjacent smaller dining room, spacious sitting room, formal living room with fireplace, a lattice room, a bowed sunroom extending from the south gable and a striking paneled library decorated with antique pine brought from England. Rich details and antiques - from a richly carved 18th-century chimneypiece over the mantel in the dining room to extraordinary millwork, dentil moldings, and wood inlay floors throughout - marry with intimate and relaxed spaces that create an atmosphere of warmth that make this a perfect family home. Six bedrooms, including a sumptuous primary wing appointed with a fireplace, sitting room, walk-in closet, and a hotel-worthy bath reside upstairs. At the basement level, an entire entertainment center exists with a bowling alley, billiard room, sitting room, dining room, kitchen as well as staff accommodation, and storage. Front and back staircases connect all levels. An in-ground pool surrounded by magical park-like gardens and fountains exist beyond the main residence, further setting the stage for private resort-inspired living and entertaining that can be enjoyed by multiple generations. Breathtaking in its depth of design, history, and pedigree, this estate is comprised of three total parcels along County Line Road bringing the total legacy offering to 2.76 acres. This parcel, 505 South County Line is situated on a 200x300 lot - 1.38 acres - amid mature trees and lush manicured grounds. Or purchase all three lots together which comprises the entire estate from Woodside to 6th Street - 2.76 acres - for $8,597,000. The story of this iconic estate lives on... with its next owner and steward. Write your next chapter. House is being sold AS-IS.
