Property Description

This beautiful custom designed double penthouse has been fully renovated with the most luxurious finishes and is located in Evanston’s Lake Shore Historic District. Thoughtfully designed for sophisticated living, this third floor walkup enjoys sun-drenched treetop views and Lake Michigan breezes. Perfectly designed for easy one-floor living, you will be enchanted by each room you enter. The kitchen boasts hand painted Christopher Peacock cabinetry, Carrera marble countertops, large center island and SubZero and Wolf appliances. The penthouse features 10′ ceilings with cove moldings and hand-laid oak floors throughout, an expansive living room with fireplace and bay windows, a formal dining room with hand painted de Gournay wallpaper, a cozy family room with surround sound (perfect for movie nights!) and spacious outdoor space with a huge rear deck overlooking the lovely landscaped grounds. The primary bedroom suite is an oasis with spacious bedroom with custom linen window coverings; luxurious bath with custom white cabinetry, walk in steam shower, double vanities and Waterworks fixtures; and large custom walk in closets. The 2006 to-the-studs renovation included thoughtful improvements like re-laying the original 1902 oak flooring over sound matting, an upgrade to 200 amp electrical service, zoned Spacepak controlled by Ecobee and custom window coverings in every room. No detail has been overlooked. Because this is a double unit, there is abundant storage space. Street parking is close and ample, and the Lake, transportation, shops and restaurants are all right in your backyard. This is a one-of-a-kind property in one of the best locations in Evanston. Must be seen to appreciate the quality built into every room.
