About our home

We have a lovely renovated old home in the city of Chicago. There is a train stop right around the corner that will take you downtown in 30 minutes. Our house has two bedrooms plus a separate single bed in the carpeted basement.
We have a small yard and garden and a deck with outdoor dining and a grill, plus a 3-season room in the back with TV, WiFi, dining table and fireplace.
We have satellite TV and a Wii system.

Where is it?


We are in a residential area that straddles two neighborhoods. On one side, the neighborhood is known as Ravenswood Manor, a very upscale area of single family homes. On the other side, is Albany Park, a very diverse area ethnically with several good Middle Eastern, Mexican and Thai restaurants within walking distance. There is also a good independent grocery about 3 blocks away, and much, more more a short train ride away.
We are also about a 20 minute walk from Lincoln Square, an area with many delicious restaurants, some bars and the Old Town School of Music, which has concerts regularly.
