Looking for a home for sale on the North Shore? Or do you just like to ogle pictures of gorgeous real estate? Each week, Patch features a different North Shore Wow House that fits the bill.
Today's installment is a $2.1 million historic Queen Anne home at 1304 Forest Avenue in Evanston. Built in the 1800s, the home features dramatic high ceilings and period architectural details, including a wrap-around porch, eight fireplaces and a screened-in sleeping porch off the master bedroom. Three sets of French doors lead from the family room to a terrace on the nearly half-an-acre of professionally landscaped lawn and gardens.
The two-story, renovated coach house above a four-car heated garage includes a kitchen, washer and dryer and two bathrooms.
For more information, see the home's listing with Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty. An open house will be held this Sunday, Sept. 9, from 1 to 3 p.m.
