Coldwell Banker Real Estate - 283658995

Note: historical records for this home do not reflect the recent purchase of the adjacent property at 94 Kedzie as well as the increase in livable space and meticulous restoration work in the home.Designed in 1915 as an English country home for Mr. H. A. Swigert, 747 Sheridan is a graceful example of architect Howard Van Doren Shaw’s attention to detail and craftsmanship. This elegant red brick home is prominently situated high on an oversized lot on the east side of Sheridan Road, offering picturesque views of Lake Michigan and Clark Square Park.Over the years, alterations were made that compromised Shaw’s original vision, and the home was not appropriately maintained. When the current owner acquired the residence, they were determined to restore 747 Sheridan to its original elegance. Over time and with the help of trained artisans, the house was painstakingly repaired, rebuilt, and returned to a condition consistent with Shaw’s vision. Today, this landmark, fully restored 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home offers a perfect blend of original craftsmanship and modern amenities. When the current owner purchased 747 Sheridan, the views of the lake were obstructed by a home located due east at 94 Kedzie. Recently, the homeowner acquired that property, and the home on that lot was torn down. 75% of that lot has been added to 747 Sheridan, creating an oversized lot nearly a half-acre in size and offering enhanced views of the lake.The home’s main level includes a living room with adjoining sun porch and library, a formal dining room, a renovated eat-in kitchen, and a powder room. Four bedrooms, three full baths, and a den are located on the second level. The third level offers a fifth bedroom, a full bath, a kitchenette, and a large recreation room. The lower level includes a laundry room, storage, and the attached 2-car garage.The home is ideally located just steps from Evanston’s lakefront and across the street from Clark Square Park. Popular dining options are just a few blocks west, with Evanston’s downtown entertainment district only a five minute drive north. Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe’s, and Jewel-Osco are all within a mile. Ideal for commuters, it is walking distance to the Main Street CTA and Metra stations.If you think this home might be right for you, please call or email us.
