About

Beautiful lakefront condo available for the academic year 2021-22. 2BD / 1 Bath condo in a 3-story apartment building in the Rogers Park neighborhood, right on the edge of Loyola Park. Quiet, peaceful, and sunny, with easy access to public transit, urban amenities, and Lake Michigan's natural shoreline. The apartment: Large main bedroom plus a second bedroom (currently used as an office), big living room with gas fireplace and additional workspace, bathroom with jetted spa tub, fully-equipped kitchen with dining nook and sliding glass doors to a balcony overlooking the park. Dishwasher, in-unit w/d, central heat and air. Gorgeous views: watch the sun rise over Lake Michigan from the front of the apartment and pink clouds streak the sky at sunset from the back. The location: Corner unit in a building at the very end of a quiet side street where the city grid gives way to a lakefront park. Steps away from the beach, tennis courts, and playgrounds. In the warmer months, the park is filled with neighborly good vibes: dogwalkers, barbecuers, beachgoers, children playing, students from nearby Loyola playing volleyball, etc. In the colder months, the park is quieter, but the leaves fall and the view of Lake Michigan transitions from picturesque to sublime. Walkable neighborhood: Easy walk to shopping/dining corridors on Sheridan, Morse, Glenwood, and Clark Streets. 5-minute walk to the nearest grocery store (Morse Fresh Market), or 10-minute drive to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Jewel Osco, and a few others. 6-minute walk to the CTA Red Line (equidistant to Morse and Loyola stops). The Red Line makes for an easy commute south to the Newberry Library, DePaul, and the downtown campuses of Northwestern and Loyola, or north to Northwestern's main campus in Evanston (via a transfer to the Purple Line at Howard). 7-minute walk to Loyola University’s Lakefront Campus. CTA bus lines are a block away: the 147 bus is often quicker to the Loop/Michigan Avenue than the Red Line, and the 155 gives convenient access to Chicago’s “Little India” on Devon Avenue. Just off the Sheridan Ave corridor, and a 10 minute drive to the top of Lake Shore Drive. Available August 2021 – June 2022 (dates negotiable). Furniture, houseplants, cat, and fully-stocked bar included or not (negotiable!). $1950 month.
