Details: This estate appears to have been picked-up in the French countryside and dropped right in Hinsdale. Known as La Maison Legrand, this home is nothing but grand. The details and forethought that went into its design and construction is par excellence.
The stone-built mansion features a stunning rotunda foyer with wood pillars, crystal chandelier and custom limestone floors.
The kitchen is beyond measure with custom cabinets in the French manor house style, a wood beam ceiling, a farmhouse sink, a large kitchen island with prep sink and professional grade appliances. In addition, the kitchen features a custom backsplash, pasta filler and a cozy breakfast room adjacent to the kitchen.
There are too many details to describe in this home. The great room has a custom limestone fireplace circa 1760, which was once found in a hotel salon in Poiters, wood plank ceiling with timber beam brackets.
The master suite includes a two-story stone and stucco see-through fireplace. In addition, the master bath includes a Kohler 6-foot diameter river bath, a natural stone shower and his and hers vanities.
Outdoors the home has a patio and sitting area perfect for entertaining and includes a stack-stone fireplace, an outdoor dining area and paver patio.
In addition, the home features its own movie theater.
Taxes paid on the property in 2011 were $45,905.
