Home is a short walk to downtown Evanston, with abundant dining, multiplex cinemas, Public Library, Whole Foods, Northwestern, and Lake Michigan beaches, all less than a mile away.School is Dewey, one of the best in Evanston; high school is Evanston Township High School with 15+ National Merit Scholars yearly.

Deposit secures the home.

Ours is a double house; the exterior picture shows both our half and our neighbors, with their own address etc. Both were built as double houses, not retro-constructed.

Great location close to downtown Chicago: 20 minute drive to Loop--non-rush hour. Public transport includes L train and Metra train station--both have stops right on Davis via 7 minute walk. Short walk to Northwestern University. Drive to take L or Metra to Loyola, Northwestern Medical and Law Schools, and University of Chicago.
