The Annex is a private apartment in an 100+ year old wood frame home just north of Andersonville. The Annex is a typical Chicago style 'in-law' garden apartment - located on the first floor of the house where we live - it is bright and clean and well appointed with comfortable furniture. (see pictures). It has large windows that look out on our garden and yard. Our daughter's family also lives on the property in rear coach house. There is easy access to Lake Shore Drive, Evanston and downtown.

This is an awesome location for a trip to Chicago. Safe and quiet and clean. The goodies in the fridge were an excellent touch. The bed was very comfortable.
