    Description

    Contemporary French Chateau new construction located in the heart of Evanston; built on an over 1/3 acre double lot within premier private landmarked Dryden Place development, this home offers exceptional interiors, unparalleled construction and state-of-the-art technology. Conceived and built by Bill James, each facade of this home presents a statement. The front entry feature of stepped slabs of thick limestone are uplit at night to impress. Professional landscaping using over $25,000 of mature trees and shrubs, along with a stunning Cascade stone water wall and pond, which are like an outdoor sculpture, provide beauty and privacy for you to enjoy from the 10' x 40' side terrace. Numerous custom Marvin floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors ensure loads of light and beautiful views of the magnificent grounds. High-end majestic exterior materials such as butternut brick and limestone exterior with green metal roof, elaborate copper rain collection boxes, downspouts & copper trim features lend luxurious elements to the house. An expansive, contemporary open first floor plan works around an oversize gas-vented wood-burning fireplace w/built-in bookcases, generous living room and dining area open to a gaming table or grand piano at the north end, paneled 10 ft. ceilings, fine wood detailing, trim. Natural finish ash hardwood floors throughout; custom poplar and metal staircase. Main entry features a large gracious foyer with walk-in closet, powder room, next to a sitting room w/view and French door access to the west side terrace. Sleek chef's kitchen with custom cabinetry, peninsula, quartz c-tops, premier Sub-Zero, Thermador and Bosch appliance package & 2 sinks. The large kitchen can be entered from the attached 2-car garage entry corridor with mud room and a 2nd powder room. The large Theater Room downstairs has windows that view a unique upgraded style of window well using an attractive interlocking block retaining wall. The second floor plan is made up of 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths: an impressive 16' x 20' master suite w/two oversized walk-in-closets, and spa-like bath that is 10' x 21', separate shower w/rain-head, handheld and body sprays. The north end of the master has a large 9' x 25' roof terrace giving magnificent views of the former Dryden mansion and grounds. A linen closet and a spacious laundry room complete the second floor. The lower level boasts a huge 23' x 24' Theater room, surround sound, an office or additional bedroom with a full bathroom. Beautiful views from large windows throughout the home. Superb pre-wired Lurex Smart Home electronics music distribution, security systems with 7 cameras in place, and heating can be operated from your cell phone. A huge finished & heated apartment size walkable attic to store off-season terrace furniture or hobby interests. 2 car attached garage plus 3 parking spaces. Construction is nearly complete. Some buyer options, closet organizers, a few bath mirrors, access to huge finished attic can be customized. Tall ceilings & doorways throughout.

See his attached bio from the recently published book "Evanston's Design Heritage: Architects, Designers & Planners." A 1-year builder warranty is included.
