Property description
Welcome to the Robert & Mina Worstall house, a meticulously preserved and maintained Dwight Perkins landmark in the heart of northwest Evanston. The home graces the cover of Prairie Metropolis: Chicago the birth of a New American House and is a Prairie-Style gem with Arts and Crafts influences. It exemplifies the meeting of architectural history and modern comforts. Step in the inviting entry and the space opens to the living room's 16-foot, barrel-vaulted ceiling and stunning woodwork with a fireplace arch that echoes the ceiling. To the west of the living room resides a sunroom while five steps down to the east is a dining room capable of seating parties of four to 12. The built-in bookcases and china cabinets retain their original shellac finishes, as does the beamed oak ceiling. The south-facing French doors fill the space with light and lead to the backyard patio. To the north, the architect-designed kitchen with adjacent powder room blend vintage charm with up-to-date amenities. There are top-of-the-line stainless appliances, including a gas cooktop and built-in double oven and warmer, custom-made shaker cabinets, honed marble countertops, and plenty of room for a table or island. Whether you are a seasoned chef or simply enjoy hosting friends and family, this kitchen is a true delight of style and functionality. Upstairs, there are 5 bedrooms, 3 renovated bathrooms, and a family room (also known as the music room) on two additional levels. There's a gracious primary bedroom with working fireplace, walk-in closet, full bath with spacious shower and office. When it comes to space, you will find plenty of closets and storage options to keep this home organized, including a full unfinished attic and basement. You will be amazed by the landscaping that surrounds this beautiful property. The front of the house is Prairie Style defined. The spacious back yard with large patio is perfect for outdoor entertaining of family, friends and guests. There's room for croquet, badminton or just relaxing. At the rear of the lot, there's a two-car garage which makes the back yard very private. This is a one-of-a-kind home that doesn't come on the market often. Don't miss a chance to own this piece of preserved architectural history.
