Koenig & Strey’s Sally Mabadi is our guide to this elegant, 5 bedroom, three-story Georgian Revival.
The home, at 705 Milburn St, is beautifully situated in northeast Evanston, just steps to Lighthouse Beach and the award-winning Orrington School. 705 Milburn perfectly captures the old world craftsmanship of the 1920s with leaded glass windows, arched moldings, marble detailing, French doors, and a graceful winding staircase.
Adding to this beauty are all of the thoughtful updates that make this home perfect for today’s families: a new eat-in kitchen with custom cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless appliances; a spacious master suite with built-in closets, new marble bath; and a large sunroom / exercise room / home office.
A very unusual feature of the home is a dog shower in the mud room. Since the beach is just a short walk, a miniature shower is perfect to wash the sand from your dog – and from any small children – before entering the main part of the home.
The home is listed for sale at $1,475,000.
