About

I am a Northwestern professor going on sabbatical and subletting my 4-storey, single family home from Aug. 15, 2021-Aug. 15, 2022, fully furnished. It is a spectacular Victorian “Painted Lady” from 1889, fully remodeled and very comfortable. Light and spacious rooms, high ceilings, big windows, hardwood floors, with a mix of Danish modern and antique furniture and lots of artwork. Located on a light-filled corner lot in a leafy neighborhood, it has a fenced south-facing side garden filled with roses and prolific berry bushes, and a large sunny deck off the kitchen with two grills and a heat lamp. 4 bedrooms (one of which is furnished as an office), plus an additional office/den/guestroom, and a sun room off the master bedroom. 2.5 baths. Remodeled kitchen with granite counters and stainless-steel appliances, eating space for two. Laundry room and extra refrigerator/freezer in basement. Covered carport for 1 car, with a 220V outlet for an EV. House includes a digital piano with a full-size keyboard and a gym-quality elliptical machine. A trusted cleaning person comes 2x month. The house is in the Edgewater/Andersonville area of Chicago near the lake: a 5 minute walk to the CTA Red Line Bryn Mawr stop, a 10 minute walk to Whole Foods and the beach (the wide, sandy Osterman Beach with full services), a 3 minute bike ride to the Lakefront Bike Trail. Convenient to multiple universities: a 16-minute drive north to Northwestern, a 5-minute drive to Loyola, a 14-minute drive south to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a 25-minute drive to University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) and University of Chicago. Tesla rooftop solar panels keep electricity bills low.
