Created by Mayo & Mayo—designers of some of the best known early 20th Century mansions on Chicago’s North Shore—this 1927 Tudor revival in Evanston combines a fine architectural pedigree with a desirable location. Situated on a private street on a lot opposite of Lake Michigan’s shorefront, the seven-bedroom home offers original hand-crafted detailing as well as views of the water.
While the kitchen could benefit from a refresh and the six bathrooms are absent from the listing photos, the landmarked structure has plenty of standout features such as a soaring great room, walnut-lined library, oversized formal dining room and solarium, dedicated media room, four-stop elevator, and an indoor pool decorated with aquatic murals.
The half-acre property also features a large outdoor patio, good-sized yard, and a five-room coach house apartment above a detached four-car garage. The ask? $2,950,000.
