Property Description

Designed by preeminent Chicagoland architect Ernest Mayo, responsible for many elegant homes along the north shore, this Ridge Mansion sits on almost half an acre of land. Held by one family since 1959, almost 6,000 square feet of graciously apportioned rooms. Some illustrious people graced the rooms of this beautiful home, notable was Joan Baez who graciously accepted an offer to appear at a fund-raiser after the release of her first album. Other well-known figures who spoke or performed included Studs Terkel, & Odetta. Artists Leon Golub and Nancy Spero stayed at the house as guests when they visited Chicago to name a few. The home was filled with art and music, a perfect home for entertaining. The spacious rooms allowed for many family holidays and special gatherings. If only those walls could speak. Gracious living Room with wood-burning fireplace. Spacious dining room, sun room, and family room both on first floor. Kitchen with attached full butler's pantry. On the second floor we have a generous Master Bedroom with en-suite, three other generous bedrooms with shared baths and an office. The third floor has four more bedrooms and a full bath. A home from a bygone era just waiting for her new owner to bring her into the 21st century. Your opportunity to own a piece of Evanston history and put your own mark on her. Property conveys "As Is".
