Life now in Evanston is certainly different than in the 1890's when this home was built, but what hasn't changed are the tree-shaded streets ornamented by a variety of architectural gems in this part of the heart of town.

This well-appointed 5BDR/4.5BTH sits on a sizable lot filled with mature trees.

Large formal dining room with custom wall paneling and accent ceiling. Enormous, light-filled, open kitchen with long and wide island and windows galore functions as command central. Kitchen boasts cook top oven, wine fridge, built-in desk and china cabinet. Lots of storage can be found in two pantry cabinets. It opens to both back deck and front porch for easy access outside and streaming in light at all times of the day. The deck is also accessible from family room which houses a re-purposed original cabinet. Mudroom with built-in cubbies and hooks for today's living. Wallpapered powder room with vessel sink sitting atop reclaimed wood countertop for a unique touch.
