Bucktown gem with modern comforts. Our condo is on the top floor of a traditional neighborhood 2 flat low-rise.

We're a stone's throw away from Starbucks and The Map Room. Located a few miles northwest of downtown, Bucktown has superb local fare and nightlife. Guests welcome regardless of orientation, religion, ethnicity, etc.

Silly, thoughtful, and optimistic. I bike, I eat, I read, I drink, I listen, I learn. I have a special lady and she’s neat.
