In the premier Evanston location, just steps to Lake Michigan and downtown Evanston, this 1894 JTW Jennings Queen Anne has been stunningly renovated with every room meticulously restored and updated. Wonderful architectural detail throughout with hardwood floors, bay windows, rounded towers and turrets, gorgeous golden oak woodwork, and beautiful use of stone detailing. The large circular front porch was completely rebuilt during the renovation to match the original that had been removed years earlier. The spacious oak paneled entry features an impressive oak staircase and a massive light fixture made of carved wood that is original to the home. French doors to the right lead to a study trimmed in rare bird's eye maple and features a polygonal front bay window. The gracious living room, originally two parlors, features plentiful curved bay windows, a massive carved stone fireplace, another curved bay window, and a wide entry to the dining room. The dining room is anchored by a beautiful fireplace, whose original oak mantel and tile facade were fully restored along with the paneled wainscoting that surrounds the room. The kitchen, breakfast room and family room were completely redone. Freshly painted white custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and high end appliances are featured in the gourmet kitchen which opens to the spacious breakfast and family rooms and overlooks the deck and lovely rear yard. The mudroom is perfectly situated for the residents to come and go from the house to the large 3 car garage. A majestic staircase with curved banister and rounded bay leads to 4 bedrooms including the primary bedroom suite and 3 beautiful baths on the 2nd floor. Several of the bedrooms include gorgeous architectural features such as polygonal bays and the corner tower with arched windows. A sunlit third floor has a large 2nd family room / recreation room, a kitchenette, two more bedrooms and a full bath. The finished lower level houses the original German nickel sink from the butler's pantry in the wet bar. Perfect for entertaining, there is plentiful recreation space in the lower level in addition to a large hockey/exercise room. All new plumbing and electrical throughout this wonderful home. A huge deck, large lot, 3-car garage plus parking pad are also included. Tesla solar panels on the garage cover 1/3-1/2 of monthly electric bills. This is a perfect home in the perfect Evanston location!
