This distinguished 3-story Tudor is an exquisite landmark sitting on almost 1/2 an acre of Evanston's lakefront historic district. The English half-timber structure is the oldest surviving home overlooking Lake Michigan in South Evanston. The refined and decorative elements will take your breath away - from the grand parlor, detailed millwork, original wood and limestone fireplace mantle, and stunning front portico where you can enjoy lake breezes and fully experience the season changes. Entertain in your spacious and welcoming living room with new solid oak floors, and gorgeous wood built-ins. Dine with friends in your elegant formal dining room with rich, detailed moldings and lovely french doors through which you will glimpse the blue of the lake. Create culinary greatness in your chef's kitchen and memories in your sunny family room. Bask in the sunshine of your lush back garden where you can rest and relax to the sounds of the fountain or grab a game of volleyball with friends. Upstairs the central gallery will lead you to the primary bedroom where you will wake up daily to enchanting lake views from your restored antique windows. Many spacious rooms will embrace your family's needs and allow for home-work space, guests, or lounging. The historical details will impress and delight you while you bathe in modern conveniences. Enjoy the bike paths and beaches right outside your front door. A quick walk to world-renowned Northwestern University, downtown Evanston, public transportation to downtown Chicago, and a short car ride to the prestigious North Shore Ravines. The home was built in 1894 for the owner of the Brass & Copper Foundry and later owned by the president of Illinois Steel Company. The charming back coach house was built in 1966 and is a wonderful rental opportunity or space for guests. The home was entered into the historic structures survey in 1972 and has been lived in and lovingly maintained by the same family for a 1/4 of a century. Now is your chance!
