Pampered Chef Founder Doris Christopher Selling Her House in Illinois for $6.5 Million

by hookedonhouses on May 6, 2012

Ever attended a Pampered Chef party in somebody’s home? It’s been years since I’ve been to one, but I still have several of their products.  Most are gathering dust, but I couldn’t live without this mini-spatula, of all things. Use it all the time.

Anyway, when I read that the company’s founder Doris Christopher is reportedly selling her 12,000 square-foot house in Hinsdale, Illinois, I had to take a look!

The listing describes it as a “Magnificently renovated and expanded traditional 6 bedroom, 8 full/3 half bath stone home.”

She bought the house in 2003 for $6.32 million.

Doris reportedly plans to downsize to a smaller place.

I like this sunny sitting room:

The house was built in 1956 but has clearly had a lot of updating done to it over the years.

Of course, the room I was most interested in seeing was her kitchen.

I kind of expected something larger and more extravagant from someone who has made a successful business out of kitchenware, didn’t you?

You can cook here, too, if you can come up with $6.5 million.

For more photos and information about the house, check the listing by Daniel DeBoo of Koenig & Strey. Thanks to Mary of The Chair on the Lake for the scoop!

P.S. The pink mansion Mary Kay Ash used to live in went on the market this year, too.
