Hemphill on large half-acre lot! Own a piece of iconic Evanston architecture with this extensively remodeled Hemphill home, originally built as a residence for Clarence Hemphill himself, with a 4-car tandem heated garage. With high ceilings, steel-frame casement windows and wood floors throughout, this home is suffused in natural light and architectural interest. The main living level includes a dramatic living room with wood-burning fireplace and 10' ceilings, flowing to formal dining space, separate breakfast room and gourmet kitchen with quartz countertops, Viking range and SubZero refrigerator. The true show-stopper is the open and airy two-story family room added in 1996 and featuring a large wood-burning fireplace, floor-to-ceiling french doors, vaulted ceilings, one-of-a-kind Argentinian stained glass panels and views of the extra-deep rear yard and entertaining terrace. In addition to the five oversized bedrooms, this home is designed with two work-from-home offices - one on the main level and one on the second floor, both with built-in shelving and file drawers. The exceptional second floor is open and airy with a wide central hallway leading to generously sized bedrooms that all have large closets. The lovely primary suite is large enough for sleeping and a sitting area - plus two walk-in-closets and a serene step-down primary bathroom with radiant heat floors, dual vanities, steam shower and Jucuzzi tub. Also on the second floor is the en-suite bedroom with remodeled bath and easy access to rear stairs - perfect for guests or nanny. The spacious 3rd floor bedroom, currently used as a play room and workout space, is light-filled with tree-top views of the expansive rear lot and has its own updated full bath. The basement boasts a climate-controlled wine room, laundry, large storage spaces and lots of options for future finishing. The large 35' x 45' bluestone patio features a limestone-faced wood-burning fireplace, a seven-person in-ground hot tub, and a gourmet outdoor kitchen complete with built-in gas grill, bar fridge, granite-topped bar and four gas supplies for adding outdoor heat lamps. The amazing attached 4-car tandem heated garage is accessed by front drive with extra parking options. Numerous updates by current owners include the 2-story family room, updated kitchen, mudroom, guest suite and expanded garage, 400-amp electric service, Generac generator, CatV wiring, two SpacePak air conditioning zones both with new condenser units and air handlers, whole house painting in 2021 and much more.
