This three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath townhome is listed with Steven Sims of Coldwell Banker for $750,000, and will be open to tour Sunday from noon to 2 p.m. 

Built in 2007 by Evanston architect Nathan Kipnis, a specialist in creating ‘green’ living spaces, Sims says the three-level home offers a rarity in Evanston — a contemporary design.

"There are so few contemporary homes in this area," Sims says. "This is an ideal property for buyers who love modern design and an environmentally-friendly home."

1833 Lincoln Living Room

The main level of the home, one flight up from the entry, includes an 18 X 10 living room. It has slate tile floors and a slate-tiled wood-burning fireplace.  There is also a formal dining area and sliding glass doors that lead to a balcony. 

The sleek kitchen, also on the main level, has off-white European cabinets, stainless Jenn-Air appliances, and concrete countertops with built-in drain boards. There is also a breakfast bar with pendant lighting.

A powder room rounds out the main level.

The master bedroom, on the third level, is 16 X 13 with an extra deep walk-in closet. The adjoining master bath has a large tile shower with bench seat, marble heated floor and skylights.

Two additional bedrooms and one additional bath are also on the third level, as well as the laundry closet.

The lower level includes the unit's entrance, a family room, den (or possible fourth bedroom), another full bath, and storage.

Sims says this unit has additional energy efficient features that include roof mounted solar thermal panels and rapidly renewable bamboo flooring.  The property also has a fenced yard and garage space for two cars.

The townhome, located in the Kingsley/ Haven School district, is a few short steps from schools, trains and Central Street shops. Taxes for this property are $14,355. For more information, contact Sims at 847-567-9000.
