It took two years and a whole lotta price chops, but this fifth floor penthouse in Evanston has finally sealed the deal. By the time it scored a buyer, the original ask of $1.85M had fallen some 50% to the $935K sales price. Inside, the slick duplex unit immediately gets in our good graces with vaulted ceilings and a double-height window wall. We're just as amped about the gourmet kitchen, which flows out to a dining area with access to one of the home's two balconies. The 2,600-square foot, 3/2.5 home also has an sparkling master bath, custom mill work, green roof (as in well-planted), and a two-car garage. This is one place that lives up to its penthouse billing.
