Brace yourselves! This is, after all, "Evanston's most admired lake shore home!" Designed by noted architects Tallmadge and Watson, the Georgian Revival landmark was built in 1927 for the descendents of Daniel Boone. But even all this historic cache hasn't been enough to woo a buyer. Originally listed at $3.995M in mid-2009, the ask has bottomed out at $2.095M. And with the most recent drop coming way back in August, more bloodshed is bound to ensue. Inside, buried beneath overwrought classic decor are some commendable vintage elements. There's also a curved staircase and an elegant sitting room with easy outdoor access to an idyllic lakefront— a 100-foot private (and shared) beach expanse. The 4,500-square foot home also has the companionship of four fireplaces, outdoor gardens, wood beam ceilings, and a library.
