This charming 1880 vernacular Victorian home is perfectly situated on one of North West Evanston's loveliest streets with deep lots and broad parkways, just two blocks from all Central Street has to offer. Entering the home, you are greeted with an exquisite post-civil war bridal staircase in the welcoming foyer. Throughout the first floor are 9' ceilings, hardwood floors, and well-proportioned rooms. A gracious living room boasts a gas log fireplace, a large bay window, and views of the yard and parkway. A large oversized dining room, with an exposed-beam ceiling and seating for a crowd, is adjacent to the kitchen and a comfortable sunroom with southern and west light. The well-designed kitchen encourages the "everyone ends up in the kitchen" gatherings. It features an island, table seating for 6, casual seating, and direct access to a deck overlooking the fenced yard and versatile patio. This level also offers the hard-to-find first-floor bedroom, complete with its own bay window. A fully renovated bath (2018) is directly across the hall. The attributes of the second level include four bedrooms, a full bath, a four-season porch, and extra room - just right as a nursery or homework room. The primary bedroom features an elegant gas log fireplace and beautiful windows. The second and third bedrooms are of similar size but one has a skylight and access to the four-season porch. The fourth smaller bedroom is being used as a library. Renovation of this spacious home began in 1985 when it was converted from a two-flat to a single-family home. While wood trim and other Victorian detailing have been maintained, the property has a myriad of upgrades including: garage (2001), window replacement throughout (2009), Central Air (2010), stainless appliances (2012), deck, and two-story stairway (2014), first-floor bath and powder rooms renovated (2018), new roof (2018), new water heater and venting (2020), electrical service upgraded to 200 amps with new breaker panel (2021), new water service (2021). Sewer line cleared to the street (2021), temporary basement posts replaced and joists strengthened (2021), asbestos removed (2021). A full and more detailed list is in the drop-down box. Walk to schools and all else North West Evanston has to offer. A wonderful place to call home.
