A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity located in the heart of Evanston’s esteemed Ridge Historic District, this house is more than a home; it’s a piece of Evanston’s rich history that offers a rare blend of architectural significance, elegant living, and comfort all within approximately 8,000 square feet. Designed in 1909 by the renowned architect Ernest Mayo, with its unparalleled 1.04-acre lot, stunning grounds, and storied past, this historically significant property offers a unique chance to own the largest private residential property in Evanston. From the moment you enter this 9bd/5.2ba mansion, you’ll be captivated by the stately foyer complete with arched thresholds and decorated oak floors leading to a grand staircase that makes you feel as though you’re walking through history as you rise to the second floor. The home features beautiful hardwood floors throughout, adding to the traditional feel. The expansive living room and intimate, wood-paneled library each have elegant gas fireplaces framed in stone. The sunroom features floor-to-ceiling windows affording a breathtaking view of the largest outdoor living space in Evanston. The extra-large kitchen features clay tile floors, wood cabinets, 2-inch granite countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances, including a Viking cooktop and a 36-inch KitchenAid refrigerator. With its adjoining butler’s pantry, this kitchen can accommodate even the most lavish dinner parties and gatherings. The kitchen-adjacent family and dining areas have impressive 11-foot ceilings that soar to over 18 feet, views of the formal English rose garden, with access to both the back patio and garden. The butler’s pantry opens into a sunlit space with beautiful columns leading to an elegant formal dining room with a cozy fireplace. The second floor offers four bedrooms, two of which are ensuite, and two offices, including the en suite primary bedroom, which features a beautiful fireplace, and connects to a roomy dressing room with a Juliet balcony overlooking the downstairs living room, and a separate walk-in closet. Originally designed as a ballroom, the third floor now includes four spacious bedrooms - one of which is ensuite with a walk-in closet - a half bathroom, and a dedicated 19’6” x 17’6” family room. The sprawling one-acre yard is a true marvel, boasting sweeping professionally landscaped picturesque grounds, a [insert dimensions] in-ground pool, and an award-winning formal English rose garden previously featured in Smithsonian Magazine. The historic cupola -also designed by Ernest Mayo - was rescued from the original Evanston Town Hall. With cozy seating areas, tranquil ponds, and a trellised garden, the yard makes for an enchanting setting for events, weddings, and private concerts. Adjacent to the rose gardens sits a detached three-car garage, crowned by a charming, 800-square-foot, one-bedroom coach house. Designed by Ken Hasslet and fully renovated in 2001, its cozy yet spacious layout presents possibilities as a guest residence, rental income, or both. This home has a few surprises that you have to see to believe. Fascinating details include a hidden passageway from the library to the kitchen stairwell disguised as a bookshelf, a butler’s pantry off the first-floor kitchen, a wine cellar, and a hidden pathway leading from the foyer to the kitchen. Located in Evanston’s Historic Ridge District, this home is just a short distance from Evanston’s bustling downtown. Outdoor enthusiasts will appreciate the community’s numerous nature paths, parks, and public beaches. The property is conveniently located near public transportation, Northwestern University, Dewey Elementary, Nichols Middle School, and Evanston Township High School. All of these amenities are within easy reach, and downtown Chicago is just a quick drive or train ride away.

Chicago’s luxury property market has changed dramatically within the past decade – growing from a small, self-contained specialty, served by a handful of brokers, to a vast and highly competitive marketplace requiring an ever-increasing level of sophistication and reach.

Today, what drives success in the luxury market is not only a skilled and accomplished corps of agents, but also a comprehensive marketing strategy to brand individual listings and reach a relatively diverse audience.

That is why we offer the @Luxury Collection, a sales and marketing program that leverages @properties’ unmatched resources and relationships to meet the needs of Chicago’s luxury property owners. From new-construction in Lincoln Park to landmark mansions in the North Shore, from vintage high-rises along Lake Shore Drive to the newest generation of super-luxury towers, @properties has successfully marketed and sold hundreds of millions of dollars in high-end Chicago real estate.
