8 East 3rd Street

Dreaming of living in a fully renovated, luxury historic home in a prime Hinsdale location? Then look no further! THE Francis Stuyvesant Peabody House (Peabody House) has been extensively renovated and updated. Be delighted by details at every turn throughout the home and grounds. This house consumes less than 1/2 the energy than comparable size homes in the area, as a result of the extensive energy efficiency and conservation measures implemented in 2002-present. Additional improvements include solar panels, radiant heated floors, insulation, triple-pane windows, electric, plumbing, exterior painting, enhanced floor plan, and much more. ENJOY being on the fringe of downtown Hinsdale, near the Metra BNSF Train Station, shopping, restaurants, parks, The Community House, and Hinsdale Middle School. Hinsdale Central High School is a short distance from the home. THE Peabody House features so many flexible spaces over three finished levels plus a large, partially finished basement. The main level features a music room, library, Hoover Room/Sun Room, gardening room, and a new layout from the 2002 "tune up" that creates intimate spaces while capturing the feeling of an open floor plan. The third level provides ideal quarters for an in-law arrangement, au-pair, guest, and office space. The basement features a wine cellar, woodworking room, exercise room, and storage. The magnificent grounds feature multiple outdoor spaces including a covered porch, patio, vine-adorned pergola over deck, Koi pond, raised garden beds, and bench next to the sidewalk to foster neighborly exchanges, family photos and peaceful moments. 4 car tandem, attached garage. THE Peabody House is a national landmark rich in history and grandeur. The landmark classification allows owners to change any detail to the interior and exterior, except the few landmarked areas (e.g., main staircase), so enjoy this terrific home as it is offered or make your desired changes. DO NOT miss the full history, features, and updates in the Feature Sheet available during private showings. Schedule your showing today and Move Confidently!
