Offering a peaceful and attractive compromise between city and suburban living, this rental unit in a remodeled old-school Irving Park greystone is surrounded by an outdoor garden that would make most Chicago homeowners blush. Though warm weather may be some months away, it’s definitely not too early to dream about sipping a cool beverage next to the property’s babbling backyard waterfall pond.
The second-floor apartment features a bright living room, separate dining area, three bedrooms—including a king-sized master—and a perfectly acceptable kitchen. While clean and newly updated, the listing's single bathroom could prove a bit tight for a growing family.
Located near the CTA Blue Line, Metra, and Kennedy Expressway for easy commuting, this property offers heaps of classic Chicago character plus a bucolic landscaped retreat. Rent runs $1,950 per month, with tenants also on the hook for gas and electric.
