Furnished 2B/1B Prewar Apartment in Hyde Park steps from University of Chicago Campus

Renting a furnished prewar 2Bed/1Bath apartment on South Ingleside Ave, between 54th Place and 55th Street from September 2020 onwards (with possible dates flexibility). Luxury kitchen appliances, media entertainment, and office space equipped for the perfect living and work environment.

Location: Ideal for access to the University of Chicago campus and hospital. 4-minute walk to Ratner Gym, 7-minute walk to the Regenstein Library. UofC shuttle and bus stops (55, 171, 172) stops are a 3-4 minute walk, making for easy transport to all of campus, Trader Joe’s, CTA, MDW airport, and the Metra lines for getting downtown. 7-minute bike ride to the lake at Promontory Point. Lovely restaurants and museums within walking distance.

Apartment: 1,000 sq ft 2nd story apartment with hardwood floors. Perfect for a single or couple to use the smaller bedroom as an office. Large living room, dining nook, and kitchen. An enormous amount of storage with 4 walk-in closets. The apartment is up one flight of stairs and there is no elevator.

Building: The apartment faces into a tranquil garden courtyard. Easy and free street parking. 2 ground floor bike rooms in the building. Back porch/staircase accessible via the kitchen can accommodate smokers (though please not inside the apartment).

Furniture: Tastefully furnished with a mix of mid-century modern, antique, and contemporary pieces. Massive hardwood bookshelves and additional smaller ones provide ample library space. Less than 1yr old King bed in the larger bedroom. Semi-sheer white linen curtains and lots of plants for ambiance and privacy.

Amenities: Fully equipped kitchen with less than 1 yr old appliances. Stainless steel refrigerator, gas stove, Breville espresso machine, blender, juicer, Kitchenaid mixer, dishwater, microwave, cooking supplies, dishware, vintage bar cart. 55” flat screen Roku-equipped TV, Bluetooth stereo, vinyl player, smaller flat screen for the bedroom, computer monitor, and Brother printer. 2 new AC units and radiator heating with built-in humidifier panels. Bath/shower combo. Laundry room with washers and dryers in the building complex with individual lockers for detergent storage.

Rent: $2,000/month, excluding utilities and internet (~$90/month). The apartment is owned by a graduate student as her personal home, so there are no move-in fees or corporate rules like the awful Hyde Park property conglomerates. Merely treat it as you would your own! And if you prefer to bring your own of certain house items, we can work that out too.

Photos show the apartment's current configuration. There would be some furniture changes for the duration of the rental (King-sized bed brought into main bedroom, couch switched, TV and media added to living room). 2nd smaller bedroom is shown empty in photos, which would serve well as an office/guest room.

If interested, please send a message with some basic information, possible dates, and any questions!
