AN IMPRESSIVE AND
historic EVANSTON mansion
The architectural style of Stone Porch by the Lake embraces the past while ushering in a new wave of 21st-century innovation. It was built in 1889 as a Queen Anne style house and in the 1930s was transformed into the Tudor Revival that stands today.
A bluestone porch wraps the front of the house and a patio with a 15-foot outdoor stone fireplace sits in the back, offering ample opportunity to relax outdoors. Inside, a large, open staircase welcomes visitors into Stone Porch and establishes the warm, hospitable tone for your stay.
Stone Porch is perfectly situated for walkers, runners and bicyclists. The home is located across the street from the trail along Lake Michigan, which is used year-round. Stone Porch is located less than 3/10 mile from the Northwestern University Segal Visitors Center.
We’re exactly ½ mile from the Davis Street Purple Line stop and the Metra North line, which runs to Chicago in just 40 minutes. The home is less than ½ mile from the many shops and restaurants in downtown Evanston.
