Located in Highland Park, Illinois, this “award-winning” 19th century Queen Anne mansion has recently returned to the market with snazzy new photos showing off its tasteful blend of old craftsmanship and contemporary amenities. Compared to the property’s old listing photos from 2012, it’s clear the home has received a substantial designer-supervised makeover and now sports staging appropriate for such a grand and historic structure.
The seven-bedroom home was originally built in 1892 and was designed by William Boyington. The notable local architect also drew-up Chicago’s Water Tower, Board of Trade, and the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield. Boyington’s handsomely crafted old-school touches combine with 21st century upgrades such as an integrated smart home system, remodeled kitchen, theater room, wine cellar, exercise room, elevator, and attached heated three-car garage.
The enormous 11,400-square-foot mansion is situated on a 1.4-acre lot not far from Lake Michigan and even features a highly desirable Sheridan Road address. This 18-room Victorian beauty is currently asking $3,650,000. According to records, it last sold in 2014 for $2,250,000.
