Tons of space, charm and updates throughout this gorgeous Queen Anne in an amazing Evanston location. One of the prettiest houses in the neighborhood with unique Spanish style eaves and solid wood decorative elements -- a previous winner of the Painted Lady contest. Natural light flows into this move-in ready, 6 bed/3.5 bath Victorian beauty on picturesque and tree lined Maple Avenue. This immaculate home features countless improvements and amazing detail, including paneled doors, custom trim and moldings, recessed lighting, Lightology light fixtures, decorative wood columns, Marvin windows, stained glass windows, transoms, and hardwood floors throughout. Be amazed from the moment you walk up the oversized front porch with custom designed, natural wood swing and into your gracious foyer entrance, featuring a classic staircase and 10' plus ceiling height on the main floor. Formal double parlor living room with oversized front picture window, wood burning brick fireplace with built-in bookshelves, and bay window with built in bench seating. Separate dining room offers wainscoting, a gorgeous built-in hutch/dry bar with leaded glass windows and turn of the century Murano crystal chandelier. Updated eat-in kitchen offers vaulted ceiling with skylights, white cabinetry, granite counters and Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances. French doors lead to a quaint three season screened in porch overlooking your large, landscaped back yard that features brick paver patio, two raised garden beds and a full yard automatic sprinkler and irrigation system controlled remotely by phone app. 2nd floor offers 4 generously sized bedrooms, plus a family room and full bath. 3rd floor provides a large primary suite offering an oversized walk-in closet with built in organizers and center dresser, bonus washer/dryer and an ensuite bath featuring heated floors, double vanity sink, separate soaking tub and walk-in shower. 6th bedroom works great as an office, offering built in desk and bookshelves and great light with skylights and front facing windows. Partially finished basement features a recreation room, bonus workout/ping pong room, updated white subway tile full bath with heated floors and loads of great storage, including a perfect area to add a wine cellar.
