    Property Details

    This is a stunningly beautiful home situated on a lovely landscaped yard in Central Evanston. The home boasts a complete restoration with every attention paid to rehabbing vintage detailing and blending contemporary styling to create a one of a kind totally authentic home. The entire interior of the home including the trim has been repainted and the first floor floors have been refinished (2018). Built at the turn of the last century this Victorian presents hard wood floors, tall ceilings, beveled corners, little nooks, decorative wood work and round angles, all typical characteristics of the style of home during this era. Sunlight streams into this home from many leaded glass oval windows, arched windows, tall narrow windows, a diamond shaped window, french doors and skylights. One can direct the sunlight, as most windows (first and second floors) are equipped with motorized blinds (2017). The entryway opens into a sitting room that currently is being used as a piano room. An elaborate staircase with classically shaped balusters and fluted columns greets you and invites you into the living room where there is a fireplace with new liner (2017) adorned with hand crafted wood mantle surround. Adjacent to the living room is a charmingly comfortable sun room. From the entryway one can follow hallway back to the family room which opens to the kitchen. Family room has uniquely crafted high-level book shelves and exquisite William Morris wallpaper. Alternatively another way to the kitchen is from the living room through the dining room. The dining room offers a floor to ceiling built in hutch and lovely french doors that open to porch plus a magnificent chandelier. Once you are in this dream kitchen you will note that it is equipped with top of the line stainless appliances; Subzero refrigerator, Wolf double ovens and stovetop, Thermador exhaust and Bosch dishwasher. Custom white cabinetry, drawers, and occasional glass cupboard doors adorn the walls. There is an efficient computer area, a large granite island which supports a farmhouse sink and has room for tucking chairs and the added bonus is a bead board paneled butler's pantry with open shelves, drawers, a wine rack and a door that opens to the kitchen and another that closes from the dining room. You can easily maneuver around in this exceptional cook's kitchen. Additionally there is a mud room offering a large closet with built-ins and a handcrafted bench with storage underneath. The dining room offers a floor to ceiling built in hutch and lovely french doors that open to the private side porch. On the second floor you will find 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master suite is complete with a fireplace, a wall of closets, a master bath with separate shower, separate toilet and a large deep soaking tub sitting on a beautiful stone floor. The third level is charismatic with its built-in bed and a rounded turret enclosing a double bed perfectly. Also on this floor there is a great room with built-in bookcases, vaulted ceilings and skylights. This room works 'great' as another family room. Full bath on third floor also. All bathrooms have been recently updated to include glass door enclosures. The basement is finished(2017) and there is a brand new laundry room with tile floor, a mechanical room with two new water heaters (2017), new HVAC system(2017), new furnace and a/c(2017) and Spacepak (2016). All major repairs have been completed just move right in and enjoy the home.There is a twenty seven foot private porch accessible from both the double doors in the dining room and the mudroom. Trex steps (2017) have been installed on both ends of the porch. Lovely outdoor lighting shows off the patio area and yard lighting for the grassy area all of which is enclosed with a new attractive aluminum fence(2017). The garage and the home were both painted(2018) and have new roofs(2016). This is a turnkey home and all one has to do is move in.
