Sponsored post: An 1880s Victorian home just north of the park at Ridge Avenue and Main Street in Evanston is coming on the market after a painstaking four-decade renovation project.
The long-time owner has gradually transformed the home at 921 Ridge from its near-derelict state of the 1970s to a light-filled home with a contemporary flare, while retaining its distinctive traditional lines, wrap-around porch and porte cochere.

The home, listed for $1,150,000 with Lynne Heidt of @properties, awaits new owners who will design their own floor plan and interior finishing.

While the interiors of the house and coach house or flex space are completely unfinished, the owner/designer has singlehandedly, over many years, updated and improved the property structurally and aesthetically.
