Today, my Hinsdale listing hits the market — it’s right around the corner from the house I grew up in. This 5bed/5.1bath home is nothing short of enchanting.
I couldn’t have pulled this one off without my talented videographer/best friend Courtney Cimo. She created an intimate and gorgeous film of the home. I also have to thank Dawn McKenna, real estate queen and my co-lister. Dawn and her team have been a true joy to work alongside.

The heart of this home is in the unexpected details. It begins with the vintage doorbell, one that fills the house with a ring-ring-ring that is wonderfully unique. Once inside, there’s a secret box in the foyer, a place to store a small piece of candy or handwritten note.
As you walk through the rest of the house, there is so much more to take note of: the Amish hand-scraped hickory floors, the custom built-ins and the spacious yet practical layout. The first floor is an entertainer’s dream — it is open and inviting. One room leads effortlessly into the next, marked by arched entryways and crown molding.
The oak staircase leads up to bedrooms and charm. On the second floor, the master suite is something to remember. There is a glorious bath, complete with a custom reproduction of an antique vanity. In the bedroom, sun streams in through the Juliet balcony, filling the room with dancing light. The volume ceiling is quite special as well — beadboard with designer finish.
There are two more bedrooms on the second floor and another on the third floor. Each one has an en-suite bath with carefully selected finishes. In the basement, there is yet another bedroom and bath — this one with large, sunny windows.
This home blooms in the spring, hosts backyard gatherings in the summer, screens football games on the lower-level projector filmscreen in the fall and stays cozy in the winter. It is a place to grow up in.
We sincerely hope you enjoy your tour.
