And why doesn’t Jim Thome’s Hinsdale, Illinois house have deer mounts in every room? The guy is trying to sell this massive house for $3,500,000 and doesn’t have a single dead animal in the house. All mystique associated with Jim Bunyan has been ruined. And what’s up with all the tulips?
We figured Thome had goats keeping his yard trimmed.
This extraordinary stone & brick manor estate is a stunning example of old world craftsmanship & state of the art technology. It offers soaring ceilings, custom millwork & high end finishes thru out 4 levels. Fabulous Chef’s Kitchen recently re done w/gorgeous cabinetry & large granite island. Handsome 1st floor Cherry library with fireplace. Master suite features his & her private baths and two walk in closets. Finished 3rd floor with playroom, sitting room and bedroom ensuite. Lower level offers pub bar, exercise room, 2nd family room with fireplace and bedroom ensuite. Magnificent landscaping features blue stone walkways and patio w/fire pit. 3 car attached garage.
Google Maps shows us that this place is in the middle of civilization, once again shattering any theories we had on Thome chopping down trees to keep his family warm through winter. The next thing someone’s going to tell us is that Thome eats hummus and falafel.
