Built by prominent Chicago area architects Mayo & Mayo in 1911, this massive Evanston mansion is back with a new, lower price. The English Revival style structure features tons of old school touches like wood paneling, limestone fireplaces, and original plaster moldings. The sprawling, 10,000-square-foot home also sports a spacious tiled sunroof, dedicated billiards room, and a three-car coach house garage.
The mansion was originally constructed for Anson Mark of Chicago area steel pipe supplier Mark Manufacturing. While some of the home’s flower print decor and dated kitchen appliances could arguably benefit from a less-frumpy makeover, the basic “bones” are still reflective of its notable architectural pedigree.
Situated on a half-acre corner lot along Evanston’s Michigan Avenue, the property is a short walk to Lee Street Beach and nearby Lincoln Elementary School—one of literally hundreds of Illinois public schools by that name. Originally listed for $3.3 million back in January of 2016, the stately manor can now be had for $2.6 million.
