Description

GOOOOOOOD MORNING! How about waking every morning to brilliant sunshine dancing on the waters of Lake Michigan?! This one-of-a-kind, historic home is perfectly located in the highly-coveted Lakeshore Historic District of Evanston, and just 18 minutes north of downtown Chicago. This rare gem offers unobstructed views of Lake Michigan from most rooms, and is steps from numerous lakefront parks, beaches, bike/running paths, and lagoon. Equally fantastic - the home is conveniently just a few blocks to... all that downtown Evanston offers; walk to dining, shopping, entertainment, train and Northwestern University! This incredibly-spacious, 6-bedroom, 4.5 bath home has been lovingly maintained by one family for over 60 years, and offers an abundance of bright, charming living space with 10' ceilings, custom built-ins, tall, oversized windows, and updates galore. Renovations include newer kitchen w/ butler's pantry, restored hardwood floors, full 2nd kitchen in lower level, newer windows and electrical, walk-out basement. All this AND LOW TAXES! This charming historic home with direct Lake Michigan views is a true one-of-a-kind!
