The unusually high sale price tipped us off that there might be something special about this 6-bed home in Evanston. Turns out we were right. The 110-year old beaut, just blocks from the lakefront, was designed by celebrated architect Ernest Mayo. The original listing price of $1.899M made it one of the priciest homes on the market in Evanston. It closed for $1.788M. Mayo's vision comes full circle with spacious and brightly-lit rooms, wood beam ceilings, and intricate leaded glass windows. How about the enchanting solarium with outdoor access? An honorable mention goes to the de Giulio kitchen with a breakfast nook and butler's pantry. These north shore digs up the ante with high ceilings, a finished basement, skylights, a sauna/steam room, front porch, and a whopping five fireplaces. And the new owners will have Burnham Shores Park at their disposal. Win!
