Property Description

Rare opportunity to build out one-of-a-kind brick and exposed timber designed loft style house in a premier Evanston location 3 blocks from Lake Michigan! Extraordinary natural character and potential. Couple began renovating this hundred-year-old all-brick former Music school into a loft last year...but must now relocate for work. Bring your designer and finish customizing this one-of-a-kind 2400 sq ft two-story space (plus 1000 sq ft basement) with exceptional ceiling height ( up to 16 ') into your dream home. Corner lot with tons of windows brings in an unbelievable amount of light and air. Finest restoration contractors used to do a 360 degree masonry restoration including a full grind and tuckpoint on the exterior and spot restoration on the interior brick. All first floor walls have been removed and new structural steel posts and beams have been installed throughout while opening up the first floor sight-lines from wall-to-wall. The brand new warrantied rubber roof with four inches of added insulation on top by gold standard Hanson Roofing will allow you to keep the century old wooden joists exposed. Both living room and master bedroom have vintage brick fireplaces with newly lined and rebuilt chimneys. Corner lot just around the corner from Lake Michigan, Evanston Hospital & Northwestern. Very special offering for stylized loft living. A signed waiver must be presented to owner before showing confirmation (in additional information). All room sizes are approximate. Please take virtual tour.
