Situated on a double lot of almost half an acre of lushly landscaped grounds, old-world charm meets modern luxury in one of northeast Evanston's most recognizable homes. The stunning lannon stone historical landmark, Lyle D. Reed House, designed by noted architect Frederick Hodgon in 1925, has been conscientiously renovated with a focus on luxurious modern features and details. The home has gone through two major renovations since 2010. The thoughtful consideration of the history of the home and the quality of its past craftsmen has been blended with modern and custom hand-crafted cabinetry and built-ins, high-end fixtures and details throughout, such as Perrin and Rowe and Samuel Heath faucets, a mix of modern light fixtures and restored period sconces, and a reimagined floor plan to accommodate the needs of the contemporary family. This stunning home boasts 6 bedrooms, 4.2 bathrooms, and nearly 6000 square feet of living space. The first floor features an inviting entryway adjacent to the large living room with a natural stone encased fireplace, and the formal dining room that has been opened into the kitchen through an arched entryway encompassed with custom wood paneling. Grey base and wall cabinets with natural quartzite Arctic White slab countertops and backsplash encompass southern, western, and northern walls, with additional counter space on the northern wall. A wide section of windows was added above the deep single bowl polished nickel farmhouse sink overlooking a secluded side patio. The kitchen is centered around a generous island with barstool seating, a prep sink, additional storage, and natural quartzite counters. Appliances include a 48" Wolf oven with a custom built-in range hood and chrome pot-filler, Sub-Zero built-in refrigerator, and Miele built-in espresso system, convection oven, and dishwasher. The kitchen directly leads to the 2-car attached garage, the side patio, and a convenient back staircase to the second floor. The gem of the first floor is the renovated solarium that doubles as the perfect family room. It is highlighted by a custom-built peninsula bar with natural quartzite Mother of Pearl counters, bar stool seating, and built-in wall cabinetry with a television nook, heated slate floors, stone fireplace, and a large seating area. French doors lead to the expanded bluestone patio that features a custom-built stone and bluestone exterior kitchen with a built-in Green Egg station and a DCS grill, natural stone and bluestone firepit, and a natural stone water feature. A reimagined library with shiplap ceiling and built-ins, a first-floor office overlooking the backyard, and a renovated powder room with marble tiled floors, a marble countered stainless steel pedestal sink, and built-ins with custom wall paneling, make up the first floor. The 2nd floor features 5 well-sized bedrooms, each with custom closets and built-ins, and 3 full bathrooms. The primary bedroom has two closets and two walk-in closets. The large walk-in was expanded and outfitted with built-ins and a makeup vanity with a Mother of Pearl counter. The primary bathroom is encompassed in half wall Calacatta marble slabs, a walk-in steam shower with bench seating, air-jet tub, vanity with marble counter and full-width mirror, TV, and mini chandelier. The additional 2nd-floor bathrooms feature marble, natural quartzite, Perrin & Rowe, Samuel Heath faucets, and air-jet tubs. A laundry room with a built-in washer and dryer, laundry sink, and convenient cabinetry finishes the 2nd floor. The 3rd floor is accessed through the grand staircase and includes an exercise area, the 6th bedroom, an additional sitting room, and a 4th full bathroom with a walk-in shower. The basement has been finished and includes a recreation room, storage, and a utility room. Professionally designed landscape by O'Brien Landscape. Perfectly located blocks from Lighthouse Beach, NU, Central St. El, and Orrington School.
