    Description

    Rare opportunity to own 2020 restoration of historic gem on tree-lined Street. This 1892 home was designed by well-known early Evanston architect Stephen A. Jennings. Thoughtfully renovated to create a space that is perfect for how we live today, this home features charming original details such as decorative multi-paned windows, oversized entry doors, and Eastlake brass door hardware. Enter the house through the wide front porch into the gracious formal foyer with original stairway and built-in bench. Light pours through unique six-foot tall corner windows into the lovely dining room, with a vintage cerulean blue tile fireplace surround and oversized pocket doors. Bright family room is open to the stylish kitchen with 9' high cabinets and custom wood hood, white quartz countertops, 6-burner gas range, and large island with seating for 5. Wide farmhouse-style sliding glass door leads to an amazing room-sized deck and spacious backyard. On the second floor the primary bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with marble tile floors and a view of the stars through the skylight in the custom walk-in shower; two more bedrooms, another full bathroom, and a laundry room complete the 2nd floor. The top floor includes the 4th bedroom, a stunning full bath with slate floors and a custom walk-in shower, and a flexible living area that's perfect for use as a work-from-home office, sitting room, or playroom. The bright, expansive finished basement has surprisingly high ceilings and a flexible open floor plan that can accommodate a family room or recreation area. This 2020 to-the-studs renovation included a new 2-zone central heat and air conditioning system with WiFi-enabled thermostats, all new plumbing and electrical, and a new roof. Walk to downtown Evanston trains, shops, restaurants, and entertainment; close to Northwestern University and Lake Michigan.
