This is seriously one of my favorites now. It is pristine! Built in 1895 in Evanston, Illinois. All of the restoration work done on the home was based on the original drawings and plans. Six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and 6,000 square feet. $2,325,000

From the Zillow listing:


Beautiful historic Queen Anne landmark built in 1895. After a fire, a 16-month restoration of the home earned a preservation award. Every detail painstakingly restored based on original drawings for home. Large windows and original woodwork preserved and enhanced. Plumbing, electrical, insulation, kitchen, and baths all new in 2001. 6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths plus a 3 bedroom income-producing coach house. Exterior with hand-dipped wood shingles, cedar shake roof with all new copper gutters, covered front porch, porte cochere, massive pocket doors fully restored and operational, box ceiling in dining room, mahogany woodwork in family room, heated sun room, 6 fireplaces, modern eat-in kitchen with quarter-sawn oak cabinets designed to fit history of home, exquisite master suite with gorgeous bath and exercise room. 3rd floor rebuilt featuring 2 offices, 2 bedrooms, beautiful bath, and “disappearing dome” rebuilt from original plans. Amazing quality and detail throughout. Perfection!
