Welcome to one of Evanston's prized historic residences. This 1921 Colonial Revival home has been lovingly restored to its original architectural splendor in the Evanston Lakeshore Historic District. Set blocks from the Northwestern campus, downtown Evanston amenities (with its Whole Foods, restaurants, coffee-shops), Lake Michigan, Clark Street Beach, and lakefront parks, this singular property presents a rarified opportunity to live in a true architecture and history lover's dream location. Take a walk around the block and enjoy beautifully restored and maintained historic homes in every direction. The storied brick residence was designed and built by esteemed architect, Eric E. Hall, who also designed the original Chicago Stadium (built in 1929 and demolished and replaced with the United Center in 1994). The home is believed to be Eric E. Hall & Company's only residential project. Wonderful preserved architectural details tell a story of a bygone era: arched windows, square brick piers, a side entry porch accented by round arch openings, a first-story sun room with multi-light wood windows, original moldings and richly refinished hardwood floors. A graceful foyer area opens to grandly scaled living and dining rooms flooded with natural light and anchored by a wood-burning fireplace, a galley-style kitchen with the original butler's pantry and generously-sized food pantry. Also on this floor: a spacious family room addition complete with a bar-area and built-ins and a bedroom that could serve as a home office or au-pair quarters. There are three upstairs bedrooms and two full baths, including a large, gracious primary suite with a sitting area, fireplace and private balcony. A one-bedroom, one-bath coach house/ADU provides the opportunity for generating about $28,800 in rental income per year, with 2 detached parking spaces in addition to a 2-car attached tandem garage space. The current owners infused new life into the home, graciously undertaking many of the unglamourous updates, such as adding Space-Pak air conditioning, a new roof, new copper gutters and copper dormers, a new security system, front and backyard landscaping with Rossborough Partners, new fencing and hardscaping, along with new luxury lighting and Restoration Hardware raw silk window treatments throughout. Don't miss the opportunity on this one-of-a-kind home in one of Evanston's most sought after locations.
