Spacious, fully-furnished 2BR near Northwestern and Loyola

Spacious, tasteful, fully furnished, affordable 2BR apartment on third floor (walk-up) available for the 2020-2021 academic year, dates flexible. Perfect for an academic on sabbatical, a couple, or two roommates. Unfortunately cannot accept pets.

The apartment is located in the Rogers Park neighborhood of northern Chicago, two blocks from Jarvis station on the Red Line (30 minutes to DePaul, 45 minutes to the Loop for downtown campuses of Northwestern, Loyola, School of the Art Institute, or Columbia College) or a ten minute walk to Howard for the Purple Line to Evanston and Northwestern. Loyola University is a 15-20 minute walk south. The area is safe and residential with a few friendly neighborhood coffee shops, bars, eateries, and groceries in close walking distance. Lake Michigan is just a ten-minute walk away, and the beachfront park is lovely throughout the year.

Living room: large, airy, bright in the afternoon and cozy in the evening, well appointed for entertainment with comfy couch, TV, and vintage audio.

Dining room: currently organized as home office and workspace (see photos), can be rearranged as dining space (table in storage) or dual office. Large windows face west, with excellent natural light throughout the day, great home working environment.

Bedrooms: large main bedroom with southwest-facing window, queen bed, desk, bookshelves, large closet. Second/guest bedroom doubles as study with bookshelves, reading chair, and stereo. Both have very large closets for additional storage.

The kitchen and bathroom are smallish in comparison, with limited counter space but enormous pantry, gas stove, microwave, crock pot, full range of dishes, silverware, pans and limited baking goods.

Basement space (accessible from back stairs) has laundry and drying ($1.50/load), bike racks, and individual storage spaces.

All linens, dishware, and other housewares are included, along with utilities and internet. I would love a tenant who will make use of my library as well (modest selections in literary theory, video game studies, Japanese literature), but if not, I will put books in storage to clear shelf space.

Dates are negotiable, but I hope to find a tenant to take the apartment from roughly August 2020 to June/July 2021. Alternately, January to June/July 2021 may also be an option, so please contact me to discuss the details.
