This three-bedroom home in Northeast Evanston is listed with Joan Farquharson of Coldwell Banker for $385,000, and will be open to tour this Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.

Farquharson describes the house as ‘quaint and cozy’. “This house has a lot of character,” Farquharson says. “And it’s only had two owners since it was built.”

High ceilings and hardwood floors are throughout this home, which was built about 1926. The living room has French doors, an arched doorway and a decorative fireplace.   

In the kitchen there are European-style cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a new tile backsplash.  A breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the dining room area creating an open floor plan.  

On the second floor are three bedrooms, as well as a full bath. The bath has been updated and includes a stained glass window as the focal point.

There is a private back yard with circular flagstone patio. A driveway along the side of the house leads to a one-car garage. 

Farquharson says the yard is very low-maintenance. “Thanks to the patio and perennial gardens, there’s little upkeep in back,” Farquharson explains. “No lawn mower is even needed.”

Taxes for this property are $6,750.35 and it is in the Orrington Elementary School district.  The location is close to NU, transportation, Downtown Evanston and the lake.  The Noyes St. shops and restaurants are also just a short walk away. For more information, contact Farquharson at 224-628-1804.
