Description

The Space

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.

Guest Access

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

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.

Getting Around

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.
