Occupying the top floor of a 100-year-old Evanston mansion designed by renowned early 20th century architect George W. Maher, this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom condo offers a unique floorplan that incorporates the former estate’s barrel-vaulted ballroom as its living room and kitchen.
The 3,700-square-foot residence is one of six units now located in the historic main building and coach house designed by Maher for businessman George B. Dryden in 1916. The condos, collectively rebranded as Asbury Ridge, were completed in 2007 after developers rehabbed the neglected property.
In addition to its show-stopping ballroom-turned-living room, this particular unit embraces historic details such its oval-shaped dormer windows, original hardwood flooring, and a grand communal foyer with twin staircases. The condo also offers a private terrace with treetop views of the old Georgian estate’s 2.3-acre grounds.
The architecturally significant residence is currently listed for $899,999—down from previous asking prices of $1,150,000 and $999,999. It last sold in 2007, immediately following its completion, for $1,175,000, according to records.
