There are many reasons why living in the city is great, but at the same time, there are always going to be some things that the suburbs just do better. Say you want a spacious yard? It’s going to be a lot easier (and cheaper) to find a place with a nice yard in the ‘burbs. You want a detached garage and some trees? Again, you might have more luck out in the suburbs than in the dense neighborhoods of the city. However, this classic colonial in Evanston really offers the best of both worlds. It’s got curb appeal and a tree-lined property that offers some privacy, but it’s also a short walk from public transit to downtown. Several spaces in the home have been remodeled, including the kitchen and bathrooms. It’s a pleasant little home in the prairie and can be yours for $475,000.
