About our home

The apartment is the bottom floor of a two-story house. The city raised the streets in this area about 80 years ago so you walk down a few steps to reach the front door. The house has a small front and back yard, which is all yours. The front room is large and opens into the dining area (which is now a sitting area). The kitchen is also spacious. The apartment has two bedrooms, but I have only listed it as one because the second room is an office. However, I do have a pullout sofa so you can easily sleep three. One odd thing, there are no doors on the bedrooms. I have lots of art on the walls and books, but otherwise the apartment is not cluttered. I do have two dogs, but they will not be staying.

The apartment is located in Pilsen, a very Mexican neighborhood. There are lots of wonderful restaurants and small taquerias. The area is friendly and close to a major street. There is a major north/south bus line that can take you to most neighborhoods in the city 1/4 mile away. As well, the train system is a little less than a mile. You are very close to downtown and can see the skyline if you step around my neighbor's house. There are not a lot of bars close except for a very popular hipster one, however there is a developing area about 1 mile away.

I am a graduate student at the university about 1 mile from the house, studying fiction writing. I am also involved in the local theater community. I have lived in Chicago for ten years and often serve as a tourist guide for visiting friends and friend's friends. I try to make my home very comfortable and welcoming for everyone and often host barbeque in the back yard.
