Property Description

Rare opportunity to own a historic landmark home on a massive 120 X 167 lot in prime walk-to-everything North Evanston location. Beautifully updated for modern living, 2319 Lincoln was built by renowned architect Dwight Perkins as his family residence. The home is rich with history and character you cannot find anywhere else - original built-ins, beautiful woodwork, and timeless details are found throughout the home. The expansive private yard and garden (with an in-ground sprinkler system) were designed by iconic landscape architect Jens Jensen. As you enter the home, you walk into a warm and inviting entry, with a separate mud room and powder room. The gracious living room with a wood-burning fireplace is cheerful and spacious with multiple seating areas - perfect for entertaining. Spread out into the sitting room with 3 walls of windows and access to the garden. The show-stopping formal dining room with architecturally interesting built-ins is perfect for your next dinner party. Enjoy the recently designer updated eat-in kitchen, filled with windows and sunshine, which leads to the back deck to enjoy a morning cup of coffee overlooking the serene yard and pond. The wide and grand staircase leads upstairs to the second floor which includes the bright primary suite with en-suite bathroom with heated floors, and the second generous bedroom including a tandem sunroom/office with treetop views of the expansive yard. Two additional bedrooms, laundry, and a hall bath complete the second floor. On the third floor, you will find Dwight Perkins' original office complete with rich, dark wood, drafting tables, flat files and built-ins, two additional bedrooms, a panoramic balcony, and a hall bath with clawfoot tub. The newly finished basement adds room to spread out for extra living space and includes a movie/TV room as well as plenty of storage. Unbeatable location on iconic Lincoln Street steps to Central Street shops and restaurants, the Central Street Metra, schools, and parks. Large 2+ car garage and parking pad.
