If charm, character, architectural detail and historic fun facts are your thing, look no further. Welcome to the Hearthstone, situated at the corner of Dempster and Elmwood, and built in 1923 across from the former site of Evanston High School. Designed by architect Samuel N Crowen, the architect of Chicago's Biograph Theater, this unit has original art "tiles" on the fireplace surround by Ernest Batchelder. From his 1927 tile catalog: "The fireplace is a permanent built-in feature of a room. Rugs, wall coverings, draperies and furniture may be changed ... but the fireplace remains a source of perennial satisfaction...". This gorgeous, living room, woodburning fireplace with its earth tone art tiles surround and chimney had a complete restoration in 2018 and was inspected in 2022. It is one of the few units in the building where the tiles have not been painted over. Some of these decorative tiles can also be seen randomly placed on the building's north and east exposures. Additional living room highlights: 4 hand carved alabaster stone wall sconces provide ambient lighting while new north facing windows offer open views. A long gallery style hallway with archways connects the living spaces but also allows for separation, a convenience for those working from home regularly. The bedroom retreat nestled off the hallway has an east inner courtyard view and a fully organized walk-in closet. Adjacent to the bedroom is the recently refreshed bathroom with a new sink and toilet and newer light fixture. The hallway ends at the spacious dining room with its exposed brick wall. Here there is the possibility for a separate home office, craft area, library or den. A bright galley kitchen completes the package with its warm, maple tone 42" cabinets, granite counters, exposed brick wall, a window over the sink and a new screen door open to the recently re-stained walkway. Step out to gather your herbs or around the corner to a semi-private, shared bistro style nook. Building updates: roof 2020, landscaping 2020, boiler 2021, common area windows 2022, balcony power wash and stain/seal 2022. City parking lot 23 is across the street for permit parking. Appreciate the convenient location very near the Dempster EL, restaurants, & shops. Downtown Evanston is minutes away as are Jewel, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and the lakefront.
