Luxury Collection Specialist Megan McCleary at Bershire Hathaway-Koenig Rubloff Realty Group gave Hinsdale Magazine a one of a kind historic Victorian home in Hinsdale recently. “I feel like this house has the best of both worlds. It has beauty of an older home that you just don't find in homes today,’’ said McCleary of the 1882 beauty. “For example, the floors that we talked about, the doors, the curly kind, but they modernized it completely by changing out all the plumbing, and the electrical. There is no radiator heat. There is four zones for heating and air conditioning. They have a second floor laundry room. They have a gorgeous master bath with heated floors. The kitchen is enormous with the addition they put in. They have a screened in porch.’’

McCleary said the home has every manner of convenience that you would find in a home today. Including three car attached garage, the laundry room on the second floor, master suite with two large walk in closets, a nice bathroom with heated floors and a original fireplace to ad to its charm.

 

“Couple of fireplaces have been converted to gas so they are no longer functional like coal fireplaces, ‘’ McCleary pointed out. “The floors have beautiful alternating red and white oak long planks, the doors are curly pine which you couldn't find. Curly pine isn't reasonably affordable anymore. The additional is a nice blend of keeping the character of the homes throughout the entire home.”

McCleary noted that the home was built in 18884 and was the first house on Lincoln Street. “Curly pine is from old pine trees. If you look around, there are speakers in this room with plaster walls. To get speakers in this room, it is not an easy feat.’’ McCleary marveled at the house which displays  Giant picture windows with original stained glass through which the homeowner can see the soccer field for Hinsdale Middle School also viewed by the original owners, James and Edith Shannon. According to the Hinsdale Hisotorical Society,  Shannon was a builder and an inventor who invented the hole punch. He purchased his property in Hinsdale, “Block 8”  in 1882, merely a decade since the village was incorporated as Hinsdale.

Shannon built his own home and also built and owned many houses in the village of Hinsdale, with different designs that were rented but not sold. Some of his other building include 314, 318 and 324 S Lincoln; 121 and 125 W Fourth St; and 126, 122 and 118 W. Third St.

 

“This is a antique home with a modern twist.’’ McCleary said of the Victorian which has increased in size and stature with over 6,000 square feet luxurious  victorian personality with modern conveniences. “This estate has the highest quality amenities; second floor laundry room. Gorgeous master bath paired with heated floors. A three car garage. The floors are a work of art with long, beautiful alternating red and white oak planks “The home has every manner of convenience that you would find in a home today,” said McCleary. “It has the beauty of an older home that you just don't find today.”
