In the pursuit of great listings we journeyed to the northern reaches of the Curbosphere, Evanston, where we were immediately charmed by this majestic Georgian. Sitting pretty on an oversized yard amid handsome landscaping, it exudes the type of restrained pride we'd expect from a landmark home. At five bedrooms, it's a borderline mansion but with imposing, castle-like looks it sure has substantial presence. Enough about the exterior, let's have a look inside. The 90-year old home has been "lovingly" updated and features an open floor plan and high-end amenities. We're fairly captivated by the spacious sunroom with elegant floor-to-ceiling windows and killer views of the terrace and formal gardens. The home also throws in a thermador and three fireplaces. On the market for a modest $1.4M, we can only imagine what this sucker would go for in the Gold Coast.
