About this listing
We are a trio of warm & friendly artists/musicians living in an amazing space, waiting for the next adventure. This large private room with a queen sized bed is yours for private occupancy.
The house is a beautiful 3-level 4square built in 1916 with all hardwood floors & lots of natural light throughout. I bought the house in 2008 and it is the best place I have ever lived. I am 35 years old and have a small flock of chickens in a coop in the backyard. I am an artist/musician who works as a graphic designer during the day from home or downtown depending on the day. I am polite and laid-back, a great host with experience traveling and hosting others through sites lik(URL HIDDEN)an(URL HIDDEN)g. There are currently three of us living in the house. Joe, my good friend, is a 31 year old visual artist & DJ. joemillerwork d0t c0m. My girlfriend, Nicole is a 26 year old photographer & works as a designer during the day. The largest bedroom in the house (11' x 12') is open for your private occupancy. You will have full run of the house. I sometimes travel for extended periods of time for my job.
There is a window unit air conditioner in the room during the summer. In the winter, the house is heated by radiator heat. The bed is queen sized.
I have two cats (Dot & Dash) that are about 1 1/2 years old. Three chickens live in the backyard coop. Eggs are free and plentiful.
Amenities include wifi internet, free washer & dryer, dishwasher, off-street parking (1 space), & free fresh eggs daily. 1 1/2 bathrooms. A old-fashioned clawfoot tub with shower. Pets are welcome. There is a nice sized public park 1 block away with a community swimming pool.
Community Areas are a large living room, dining room, kitchen & pantry on the main floor, A basement music & art studio, & a large fenced in garden & backyard with a fire pit.
Interaction with Guests
I prefer longer bookings. Most of our best experiences have been with guests that stay for a couple months. We can interact as much as you'd like. We are a friendly group, but respect an independent guest.
The neighborhood is west of Logan Square and is largely made up of Puerto Rican Families. My neighbors are amazing and are a big part of why it's so great living here. There are a few good Latino restaurants nearby, a liquor store & a small Latino grocery store.
Local public transportation include Metra (closest stop is Milwaukee West Line: Cicero/Grand) and buses (Grand Avenue bus goes downtown), though I use my bike to get everywhere without hassle. The main inconvenience of our location is distance from the subway.
No smoking cigarettes inside the house
