Hinsdale spec home sells for $1.75 million
An executive at Walgreen Co. paid $1.75 million for a new five-bedroom home in west suburban Hinsdale, according to DuPage County records. Brian Przyzycki, a director in the Deerfield-based company's group pharmacy operations unit, bought the Nantucket-style house on South Washington Street from Oakley Home Builders Inc. The Downers Grove-based company built the home “on spec,” or without lining up a buyer before beginning construction, according to an Oakley spokeswoman. She says she does not know what the company spent to build the house. Oakley bought the property for $812,000 in 2008, razed the existing house and finished the new home in 2009, financing the project with a $1.6-million construction loan, county records show. Mr. Przyzycki declines to comment. Oakley rented out the home before selling it.
