This English Tudor style, five bedroom, four bath home was built in 1929 by architect and Evanstonian, Henry Bristle.
The house has an elegant foyer featuring a dramatic curved staircase with wrought-iron railing and original tile and mosaic flooring.
The foyer leads to a step-down living room with lovely tile-embossed fireplace as well as a step-down dining room. Both have high coved ceilings and venetian-plaster textured walls, as well as original built-ins. The first floor also features a family/sun room with vaulted ceiling and three walls of Fenesta windows offering a beautiful garden view.
Magnusen says this home is a beautiful marriage of old and new. “The owners have taken great care to remodel and refurbish this home in keeping with the original design,” Magnusen explains. “There has been great attention to detail.”
Expanded for today’s living, the kitchen, with a polished beam ceiling, has stainless steel appliances, river rock granite countertops and furniture-quality cabinetry and drawers. The kitchen’s centerpiece is an island that can easily seat six. A breakfast nook is just off the kitchen, and offers easy access to the lovely brick patio and landscaped back yard.
An expansive master suite on the second floor features a fireplace, dressing room and new bath complete with separate shower, double sinks, whirlpool and radiant heated floors. Also on the second floor are three additional sun-lit bedrooms, one with a balcony. The third floor offers a private teen or guest suite.
The lower level has a family room with fireplace, considerable storage space and laundry facilities.
This property is located in the Lincolnwood Elementary School district. Taxes are $25,067. For more information, contact Magnusen at 847-910-1130.
