Welcome to this delightfully updated historic landmark Victorian home located on an oversized (54 x 180) lot in the Ridge Historic District. The home renovation began with the exterior in which the siding was stripped, repaired, replaced as needed, repainted, and new exterior insulation was added. The new wraparound front porch with new pillars and wainscoat ceiling was re-built and restored to its original historic architecture per the City of Evanston's approval. Extensive professional landscaping was completed in both the front and back yards including installation of a tranquil custom Koi pond, planting of new trees, bushes and established plants, plus new custom landscape lighting, stone patio and walkway, and a new exterior fence. As you enter through the original front door, you will notice the exquisite in-laid patterned hardwood floors (four distinct patterns throughout the house), stained glass windows, 10 ft ceiling height, and ample natural light throughout. The first floor features a comfortable family room with a rebuilt gas fireplace featuring an exterior marble and wood trim restoration, and a new custom sliding door that leads to the wraparound front porch. An expansive living room with southern exposure is perfect for entertaining and connects to the formal dining room with an adjacent butler's pantry. The renovated eat-in kitchen features peninsula seating, cherry cabinets, granite counters, Subzero refrigerator, new Dacor 5-burner range w/vent and blower, built-in shelving, maple floors, pendant lighting, new in-ceiling home theater speakers installed & wired to kitchen and back yard, a rebuilt and restored window, and a wet bar with an additional sink and dishwasher. The second floor features an elegant primary suite with an attached sitting room, walk in closet, and a private tiled bathroom with two separate vanities and a walk-in shower. Four additional bedrooms (one with a rebuilt balcony deck perfect for a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine), hall bathroom, walk in linen closet and laundry complete the second floor. The third floor was completely renovated, including rebuilding the stairs and railings, renovating the bathroom, and installing both new hardwood floors and Eco-Tec foam insulation. It's floor plan includes a generous great room and a fifth bedroom with ensuite bath - perfect for a teenager retreat, guest suite, or home office. Additional features include: a full clean and painted basement for storage that could be finished if desired, 3 car detached garage, new roof on both house and garage, new gutters and exterior carpentry (2020), 76-gallon hot water heater (2018), updated electric throughout the home with overhead lighting added, new exterior garage and exterior motion lighting, and alarm system. Fantastic location close to the Dempster St "El" station, retail, Lake Michigan, Davis St Metra station, schools and downtown Evanston. Please exclude staircase pendant light, and primary bedroom sitting room chandelier.
