This is a rarely available "D" unit in the highly desirable Courts of Evanston complex-- the "D" units in this complex are the only units with rooftop decks that don't immediately face another neighbor's deck and that face the courtyard instead of busy Chicago Ave.

Very convenient, desirable location just 1/2 mile from the lake. Only 0.4 miles to the Northwestern shuttle stop and the Metra train station (3 stops to downtown Chicago). The CTA "El" station is right across the street for convenient access to Chicago or the rest of Evanston. Only 0.4 miles to Hoosier Mama Pie Company/Dollop Coffee, and across the street from Walgreens/shops. 10 min. bike ride to Northwestern/5 min. drive.

We're looking for a responsible tenant while we are on sabbatical for the year. Our townhouse is available beginning August 2020 for a twelve month lease, exact dates negotiable.

Credit check required + security deposit equivalent to 1 month rent.

About Me
Hi everyone! I have been a full time faculty member at Northwestern University since 2010 after spending several years at Harvard, where I was a lecturer and received my Ph.D. I have lived in this beautiful townhouse in Evanston since 2015 and am looking for someone who can take good care of it while I'm on leave this coming year.
