April is prime time for home sales, and if you’re in the market to buy, here’s a sampling of some of the many Evanston properties for sale that you can see up close and personal this Sunday.

2700 Lincoln St.

Open 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday
List Price: $1,659,000.  Taxes: $20,165.00.  Bed/Bath:  6BR/4.5BA.

This elegant, Prairie-style home sits on a third of an acre at the corner of Lincoln and Bennett in Northwest Evanston, and was built in 1911 by noted architect, Dwight H. Perkins – a contemporary of Frank Lloyd Wright.

It offers 5000 square feet of light-filled living space – ideal for grand entertaining as well as all-around family enjoyment.

Realtor Anne Branning of @Properties says the house has had only four owners who have steadily improved the property over its 102-year history – creating a wonderful marriage between the home’s original structure and thoughtful renovations made for today’s living.

The front of the house features a sunny, year-round porch providing picturesque views of Lincoln Street which leads into the gracious living and dining rooms – beautifully appointed with oak beamed ceilings, an oversized fireplace and oak built-ins.

A first floor addition built in 1995 by Chicago architect John Eifler adds an openness and flexibility to the floor plan with an expanded kitchen and step-down family room with soaring 12.5’ vaulted ceilings. “It’s the perfect blending of new construction and the original house,” Branning says.

The home is within walking distance of Lincolnwood Elementary and Haven Middle School, as well as Central Street shopping and Metra trains.  For more information, contact Anne Branning at @Properties at 847-881-0200.
