Pampered Chef Founder Puts Her Hinsdale, Il Home Up For Sale



Doris Christopher the founder of Pampered Chef has put her luxury Hinsdale home up for sale for $6.5 million dollars.  The listing price has shown up on various sites for different amounts, but the Chicago area MLS system shows the home at 323 Hillcrest in Hinsdale, listed for $6,500,000.  The Christopher’s purchased the home in 2003 for $6.32 million.

Doris is looking to downsize from her 6 bedroom, 9.5 bath home that encompasses over 12,000 sq feet of living area.

Of course I would expect nothing less than a gourmet kitchen from the founder of a kitchen gadget company.

 After a long day at the office, to be able to come home and soak away the stress in this lavish bath, soothing music playing, a glass of Finger Lakes wine, so  divine !


This story is close to my heart for many reasons.  For one I sell real estate, listings like this interest me and I am also a Pampered Chef Consultant.

James Bupp – – Finger Lakes Living !

James Bupp is one of the great people I have had the pleasure to meet, all because of Facebook.   As many of my friends well know, I love to post “stuff;  pictures, links, comments and updates. Some of it is real estate related, some about wineries, some justinspirational and some just funny little quips. 

Just as I am a sponge for information, James loves to learn more about the great people  from the Finger Lakes such as Glenn Curtiss, the aviation pioneer.  As he wanders through the Finger Lakes, he finds out more about the people, where they came from, what they are famous for and how our lives have benefited from these folks.  Jim also likes to take  pictures as he makes his way around.

Jim is no stranger to the Finger Lakes, he currently resides in Canandaigua, but spent many a year in the Southern Tier working for IBM.  A great gentleman to have a conversation with.

In the very near future, look for links on our individual web pages to link to the others’ page.  I will also have a link to James’s store area where you can purchase online note cards with beautiful photos of the Finger Lakes area.  You really will love them !

So through Facebook a new cooperation is born.  We look forward to everyone reading our blogs.  If you have any ideas for us, please let us know by commenting on our pages.

We look forward to your page visits !
