Doris Christopher, founder of Pampered Chef, has just sold ‘one’ of her gorgeous Chicago-area mansion. Hinsdale, Illinois is a western suburb of Chicago and is only a short train ride to downtown. As one of the premier locations for top CEO’s and business owners that want the benefits of Chicago but the quantness of a small town, top buyers will love Hinsdale. Christopher purchased the 19 room, 12,000 square foot mansion in 2003 for $6.3 million. After being on the market for a few years, it has finally sold for $3.3 million. Doris owns another house close to this one that is much smaller.
About Pampered Chef from Wikipedia: “Founded in 1980 by Doris Christopher, the company began in the basement of Mrs. Christopher’s home. The company started to sell these items to housewives on the party plan, a system in which a homemaker invited her friends over for a social event at which the products were demonstrated and sold, a concept first used with great success with Tupperware. The products gained popularity in the 1990s, even as many other party plan merchandisers were faltering due to changing lifestyles. It started its global presence with Canada in 1996. It spread to Europe with the UK in 1999 and Germany in 2000. The company was acquired in 2002 by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Corporation.”
From the listing: “Superior design, exquisite craftsmanship, custom features and classic architecture, accentuate this twelve thousand square feet plus estate. The property features six bedrooms, eight baths and three half baths, in the main residence. With its incredible curb appeal and professionally landscaped grounds, it sits on almost two acres of land in The Woodlands, of Hinsdale. Offering such indulgences as a main floor master suite, a Chef’s “dream” kitchen, media rooms and an in-ground pool with its own pool house, this estate was designed for entertaining!”
