This is an amazing Queen Anne house in Highland Park, Illinois you will love seeing. It is swoon-worthy. A historical charmer circa 1892 but full of smackdabular modern updates.
Listed details for this splendid Queen Anne house in Highland Park, Illinois include:
“The magnificent 7 bedroom, all ensuite 7.3 bath Queen Anne is one of the most prominent North Shore estates on a sprawling, appx 1.4 acres. Historically significant, 2480 Sheridan Rd was masterfully designed by the famed architect William Boyington.”

Inside is not what we might expect for a historic home. “The most sophisticated discerning buyer will appreciate the tranquil-yet-elegant tone the minute they step foot in the foyer. Soaring ceilings, architectural details, and first-class custom living spaces are abundant.”
Inside is perfection
The living room features one of the four fireplaces.
This is a close-up of just one of the many custom light fixtures that makes this home shine.
One of the features of this home that grabbed my attention is the warm brown tone of the hardwood floors and trim like in the dining room.
The kitchen, designed by Mick DeGiulio, is wonderful and full of storage space. The large island has a sink that I would love to have. There is even a cozy nook for the desk. Something that is unexpected is the “professional Wolf range” that is surrounded by windows.
Lucky new owners get the floor-to-ceiling windows in the kitchen eating area. It really is a stunning home.
Up the grand staircase we go to see jaw-dropping areas like the two dressing rooms and marvelous bathroom.
Not one but two awe-inspiring walk-in dressing rooms. They definitely look like his and hers dressing rooms.
I am inspired by the warm brown or tan painted walls and even more so, the striped window treatments not to mention the curved room and windows themselves. The shower has an elegant custom tile design too.
This room can be a playroom or anything you can imagine.
The lower level is for entertainment.
Plus the lower level has a second guest suite and bath, an exercise room, and a game room.
She is all things elegant yet homey.
