Mid-century modern architecture and custom Scandinavian-inspired interiors converge in this rare Hinsdale classic. Designed by Perkins & Will architect Howard Hjort in 1954 for his own residence, this home was mindfully modernized in 2018 while retaining its architectural pedigree. Newly installed Weather-ShieldTM walls of glass give way to sun-dappled, airy interiors that blend with the exterior effortlessly, capturing the very essence of midcentury modernism, all united by new Brazilian cherry wood floors on the first floor, and new maple wood floors on the second floor. State-of-the-art and energy efficient double pane sliding glass doors and windows flank either side of the home, harmoniously incorporating the outside world into the flow like a true Palm Springs-style estate. Spacious front and rear patios combined with new landscaping create the perfect place for al fresco entertaining or relaxing with loved ones. The open kitchen is a contemporary achievement with new countertops, handmade clay tile backsplash and gourmet appliances that blend freely with the open concept living room. Sky-high vaulted ceilings create a sense of serenity in the heart of the home and the floor to ceiling exposed white brick fireplace is it's centerpiece. The spacious 3,300 square-foot floorplan speaks to today's needs, allowing for a bedroom and full bath on the first floor - ideal for an in-law arrangement. A total of four bedrooms and three full baths and one half bath complete the home. The sellers have lovingly cared for this residence over the years, making meaningful upgrades like new French rain gutter systems and a new A/C that will be passed on to the future homeowners. You won't find another home like this in Hinsdale!
