    Description Tours

    Incredibly stately majestic mansion located on one of the best blocks in Evanston. This wholly restored 8000+ square-foot home was redone entirely in 2003. Constructed Out of massive solid block limestone and concrete, finished with a brand new slate roof, and matching coach house with Servant's quarters is a real showpiece. A must-see! Never before on the market! The home is equipped with a vast Eat-in designers kitchen with an adjacent family room, all finished with the best materials, electronics, and appliances. Its formal living room, dining room and grand Foyer All have beautiful inlaid hardwood floors, wainscoting, and original solid carved pocket doors. Simply spectacular! There's also a library and sunroom again; nothing spared to restore its beauty. Its beautiful staircase is situated midpoint keeping its grandeur and elegance; once you arrive on the second level again, you're met by a double grand foyer or perhaps a concierge office? Winding your way through the hallways leads to an enormous primary bedroom suite and additional bedrooms and baths. Again all fitted In the best materials and all done in similar qualities. There are several fireplaces throughout the house, and there's even a huge hot tub, separate sauna, and separate shower adjacent to a substantial finished workout room. Mechanically speaking, there is over 600 amp service, Replaced plumbing, and heating and air conditioning. A real estate entrepreneur restored this home for himself. Everything about being a builder and engineer is simply the Best and primarily commercial grade! The coach house was built similarly with servants' quarters or a three-bedroom condo earning income to pay the taxes! It has three bedrooms, 2 baths, hardwood floors, updated windows, and a new slate roof! Wow. Bella a must-show!!!!
