Located on one of the best blocks in Evanston, this majestic mansion is a real showpiece. Constructed out of massive solid block limestone and concrete, it was wholly restored in 2003. The mansion boasts over 8000 square feet of living space, a brand new slate roof, and a matching coach house with servant's quarters. This never-before-on-the-market home is a must-see! Inside, the mansion is equipped with a vast designer eat-in kitchen, complete with the best materials, electronics, appliances, and an adjacent family room. The formal living room, dining room, and grand foyer all have beautiful inlaid hardwood floors, wainscoting, and original solid carved pocket doors. The library and sunroom have also been restored to their original beauty. The stunning staircase in the grand foyer leads to the second level, where you'll find a double grand foyer or a concierge office. From there, winding hallways lead to an enormous primary bedroom suite and additional bedrooms and baths. All rooms are fitted with the best materials and finished to the same high standards. The mansion boasts several fireplaces, a huge hot tub, a separate sauna, and a separate shower adjacent to a substantial finished workout room. Mechanically, there is over 700 amp service, and plumbing, heating, and air conditioning are all replaced. The builder and engineer who restored this home spared no expense and used primarily commercial-grade materials. The coach house was built similarly, with servant's quarters or a three-bedroom condo that could earn income to help pay the taxes. It has three bedrooms, two baths, hardwood floors, updated windows, and a new slate roof. This is truly a must-see property, ready for you to call it home!
