It may look like it’s been around for decades, but this house was built in 2009. When I read that it was inspired by architect David Adler’s work in the Chicago area, I was intrigued. Adler was known for building classic country houses in the first half of the 20th century that were influenced by European designs.
It’s on the market for $4.899 million in Hinsdale, Illinois, so let’s take a look!
Architect David Adler was born in 1882 and spent most of his life in Chicago designing houses for some of America’s wealthiest families.
One of Adler’s best-known works is the Reed House in Lake Forest, built in 1931 for the daughter of Marshall Field’s former president John Shedd. It was a collaboration with Adler’s sister, decorator Francis Elkins.
