    Description

    Contemporary French Chateau built in 2021 on the private grounds encircling the former George Dryden mansion in the heart of Evanston. Situated on over 1/3 acre double lot within Ridge Historic District, this new home offers exceptional interiors, huge gorgeous yard + patio, quality construction, plus state-of-the-art technology. Designed and built by Bill James, he spared no expense. Extensive landscape lighting of the limestone entry, west facade & stone cascading water wall yard sculpture complement the Dryden mansion and grounds creating a magical setting. Over $30,000 of professional landscaping using mature trees and shrubs, provide beauty and privacy for you to enjoy from inside & out via custom hi-end Marvin floor-to-ceiling windows and 2 sets of French doors. The exterior materials such as butternut face brick and limestone, green metal roof, elaborate copper rain collection boxes, downspouts & trim speak easy-to-maintain quality. The contemporary open first floor plan works around an oversize gas-vented wood-burning fireplace w/built-in bookcases. Generous dining room & living room areas offer surplus room for a grand piano or gaming table. Natural finish ash hardwood floors & high ceilings throughout; centrally located poplar and black steel staircase. Main entry features a gracious foyer with walk-in closet, powder room, and sitting/reading room w/French door. Neutral-toned chef's kitchen w/custom Melamine cabinetry has more than enough space to store your cooking/serving supplies as well as lots of room on the quartz countertops to use them. Stainless steel appliances are top shelf: 42" Sub-Zero, Thermador wine cooler & cooktop; Bosch dishwasher & electric oven, Sharp microwave drawer. Bonus prep sink in the breakfast peninsula. This fully-equipped kitchen can also be entered from the attached 2.5 car garage entry corridor with mud room and 2nd powder room. The second floor plan offers 4 bedrooms (Main BR plus another large en-suite), 3 full baths, 2 linen closets & a spacious laundry room w/built-in cabinets & hanging rod. The impressive 16' x 20' main bedroom suite has a 10' x 21' spa-like bath w/standalone soaking tub, separate shower w/rain-head, handheld & body sprays + a marble bench & two oversized walk-in-closets. Opening from it, lies a large 9' x 25' roof terrace overlooking the former Dryden mansion and grounds. The basement level has a 23' x 24' Theater room w/surround sound, and features a unique upgraded window well design using attractive interlocking block retaining wall to allow lots of light. In addition, are an office/additional bedroom and a full luxury bathroom plus storage, closet & utility room. Park in the attached 2.5 car epoxy-floored garage, plus 3 outside parking spaces. Superb pre-wired Lurex Smart Home electronics music distribution, security systems with 7 cameras in place, w/lighting & heating to operate from your cell phone. Buyers may customize closet organizers & choose dining room fixture. 1-year builder warranty is included. A finished, heated apartment size walkable attic for hobbies or lounging is accessed via pull-down stairs (permanent access is an add-on). The extra lot is buildable. A 2nd Garage or Super-Carriage House could be built on the present 2-car bricked area of the yard. Builder/Developer has built & sold 22 homes in Evanston, including 2 in this Dryden Place development. See his attached bio from the recently published book: "Evanston's Design Heritage: Architects, Designers & Planners." Short drive to lakefront beaches, trails & fitness course, fun places like S.P.A.C.E. 1245 Chicago a small live concert hall, dog beach at Church & the lake, New Robert Crown Community Center w/ice rinks & much more, nearby Ausrine's Art Room 1205 Crain. Skip the mall, downtown Evanston has it all!
