Property Description

This elegant Tallmadge and Watson architectural original sits on a gorgeous, landscaped 214 x 100 lot just one block from the Lake Michigan shore, on coveted Sheridan Place. Originally built for railroad tycoon, Fred W. Sargent, it has not been on the market since 1956! Impeccably maintained, this home boasts 7 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half baths, 4 fireplaces, a library, solarium, greenhouse, butler's pantry, coach/pool house, and all of the formal entertaining space one could need. Upon entering, you are greeted with the beautiful architectural details from 1927 including the grand, sweeping staircase and Parisian-style herringbone hardwood flooring. The original moldings and archways follow you throughout the home that flows from room to room with ease. In addition to the home's historic charm, many modern updates have been made, including 3 zoned heating with temperature control on each radiator, 2 hot water heaters, 200 amp electrical panel with an additional 2 panels (120 amp and 60 amp) in the crawlspace to accommodate the whole house. Sump pump in 2018 with back up batteries, heated pool with new liner and winter tarp in 2018. The first floor of the pool house floor and ceiling redone in 2018. An irrigation system runs throughout the grounds along with newer exterior lighting. The second floor of the pool house could be a studio, office or guest space. This is your chance to own a piece of Evanston history!
