    This landmark Victorian gem, sits on a beautiful piece of property in Evanston's Historic District and has been carefully updated with modern amenities to enjoy today's lifestyle. Original enhancements were done in 1900, by Ernest Mayo. The next few owners have continued to improve an already fabulous home. The front porch and swing welcome you to 1138 . Enter the vestibule and spacious foyer featuring a 3 story staircase and soaring ceilings. From this main artery you can proceed to the living, dining, or family room and on to the kitchen. Both entertaining and stylish everyday living is made better with an opened wall to make the family and dining room airy and useful while still maintaining the integrity of turn of the century style. Additional overhead lighting brings life & light to these same rooms. The vast formal living room is enhanced by a circular sun room. The leaded glass windows, fire places and wood floors with much original millwork, are throughout this charming abode. The Kitchen, updated in 2008 and the butler pantry was enhanced to match the kitchen in 2017. Not only adding more storage but adding an attractive bar or buffet. The bright chef's kitchen features a Sub-Zero refrigerator, 6 burner Wolf stove with two ovens , dual Fisher Paykel dishwashers and two Ge Monogram chiller drawers. The large island is central to the kitchen but there is also table space with plenty of seating for family and friends. This is the heart of the home. Front and back stairs usher you up to the two stories of bedrooms. The primary bedroom is adorned with a fireplace and brand new luxurious bath. Enjoy the Quartz double bowl sink, steam shower with multiple heads and radiant heated floor, finished in 2019. There are 3 other bedrooms on this second floor. One enjoys the privacy of its own bathroom while the other two share a bath. A common space includes a library/sitting area. The laundry is also located on the second floor. Access the third floor from both front and back stairs presenting two more bedrooms, sitting room and bathroom as well as a huge closet. The views from up here are quite impressive and the touch of leaded glass charming. From here descend all the way down to the partially updated walkout basement. There is a 2nd laundry room, sans the washer and dryer. Cubbies and much storage as well as a second refrig. The mechanical workings of the home are located in the older basement. While the older history and strength of this home offer much potential for more living space, with room for work out or games or a wine cellar your imagination will bring this area to life. Enjoy the view from the Kitchen of the lush backyard. The porch flows to the deck and bluestone patio with professional landscaping and mature greenery all around. A much sought after 3 car detached garage just finishes the package and yet there's more. Three blocks to the Lake and convenient to both Dempster and Main street trains, shopping and restaurants. Location, Location, Location! Icing on the cake!
