A grand Victorian charmer in Evanston’s Ridge Historic District


1700 Asbury in Evanston will make you forget every assumption you once had about Victorian-style homes.

Unusually large windows flood the rooms in this home with light and emphasize the open flow of the grand spaces.

Classic architectural details include 11-foot ceilings, crown, picture and chair rail moldings, elaborate woodwork, an impressive staircase, three fireplaces and stained glass windows.

The home is set on over a third of an acre corner lot and boasts 6 bedrooms, 4 ½ baths and a sprawling and soaring third-floor family / entertaining space.

The home is listed for sale at $1,299,000 with Sally Mabadi of Koenig & Strey’s Evanston office. Sally shows Caitlyn Terrell, Director of Luxury Marketing for Koenig & Strey, around the home in the video.
