Look no further! Just two blocks from Lake Michigan and the beautiful Evanston lakefront, 1217 Forest Avenue beckons. This majestic Mayo Tudor Revival beauty, located in the Lake Shore Historic District, has had many major improvements within the past year, including an entire new tile roof, copper gutters and downspouts (in process), completed new "Bluestone" like patio, Space Pac, and more. Throughout the home you will find fabulous spaces for everyone to live, work from home, study from home, and play. Perfect for family living, yet elegant for large scale entertaining. Large, open, flexible spaces, generously proportioned rooms and an excellent floor plan make this home hard to beat. This architectural gem is loaded with significant details including original beamed ceilings, leaded glass windows, pocket doors, built-ins, hardwood floors, several imposing fireplaces, and beautiful woodwork. Meticulously maintained with numerous major improvements over the years. List can be found under 'Additional Information' tab. The home offers six bedrooms, four full and one half-bath. On the third floor there are two separate bedroom suites, perfect for in-laws, teens, guest space, or live-in help. The warm kitchen/family room area is delightful, opening out to the beautiful brand-new stone patio overlooking the professionally landscaped lush backyard, complete with a soothing recirculating fountain. The original large two car garage is in the rear of the yard, with a charming, rentable coach house above. This gorgeous home is in an unbeatable location, blocks to the lake, close to downtown Evanston, NU, public transportation, and easy access to the city. A true gem!
