Built in 1891 in Evanston, Illinois, the house showcases the Tudor Revival style of architecture. The inside has received respectful modern upgrades over the years to keep the kitchen, living areas and seven bedrooms comfortable for today's needs.
A wide porch gracefully wraps around the back of the home, offering a shady respite from which to enjoy views of the pretty backyard and fountain. The porch then gives way to a stone patio with direct backyard access.
