Wicker Park cottage description

***IMPORTANT NOTE: This property is only available for monthly (or longer) rentals due to recent changes in municipal law in the City of Chicago. Many short-term rentals in the city are now no longer legal if not located in certain zoned areas with special licensure. Unfortunately, we are unable to rent for a period shorter than 1 month.***

Perfect place to stay in Chicago, for either a family, a couple, or an individual who wants a unique experience. Perfect for consultants who want a comfortable home away from home. This is an fully renovated 1870's Workman's Cottage in the heart of Historic Wicker Park, with all the charming historic details and all the modern amenities, too. The cottage sits on a property with an enormous yard that also contains a kitchen garden with vegetables and fruit, a woodlawn wildflower garden and is adjacent to the owner's home and large sun patio area. This is a beautiful counterpoint to the pulsing city that lays a few blocks away, with fantastic restaurants and nightlife all within a short walk. Wicker Park is also conveniently located to every other part of the city, with access to public transportation, the Metra line, the highway, and main arteries going east to the Lake.

The cottage has a master bedroom on the first floor, with mounted TV/DVD player, and iPod dock. The second bedroom on the garden level (which has 9 ft ceilings and full sunlight) has Resource Furniture bunk beds with memory foam mattresses that fold up to create a huge open area in the room -- perfect for kids who want a place to play. There is a living room with a queen fold out couch, woodburning fireplace, folk art including Moroccan lanterns. The kitchen is completely redone with marble countertops and an eat-in area, as well as counter seating. Pots and pans, as well as dishes ample to host a dinner party if one were so moved. On the garden level, there is a large family area with sectional couch, coffee table, 50' mounted TV and DVD player. Two new full bathrooms, one on each floor, one with clawfoot tub and crystal chandelier. There is an area to work, with a large desk and ample drawer space. Lots of closet space, extra sheets, towels, and blankets, down duvet covers, and new pillows. Easy to use security system. Parking pad inside a locked gate off the alley that has space for two cars.

For an additional cost, daily housekeeping, grocery shopping, and catering can be arranged.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: My son and I have lived in Wicker Park for 14 years. I am a physician and run a non-for-profit organization devoted to bringing health care access and other services to the Lake Tanganyika Basin in the Great Lakes Region of Central Africa. My organization is called the Lake Tanganyika Floating Health Clinic.

                      Why the Owner Chose Wicker Park:
                      I bought the adjacent property to my house to save the properties and open space from future developers, and also to renovate the adorable cottage which I have decided to offer for short term rental. This cottage was actually moved from its original location behind a large building, about 35 feet to the south and put on a new foundation. I have invested a lot of money, time, and energy into creating a very special and unique place in the neighborhood. Everyone who stays in the cottage absolutely loves it -- and this ranges from my dearest friends to Hollywood stars and professional athletes -- temporarily located in Chicago for the purposes of work.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Local restaurants, coffeehouses, artist's studios, great shopping, live music venues, farmer's market in the summer, and more, are all within walking distance. Movie theatres, Second City, Steppenwolf Theatre, the Zoo, Museums, The Art Institute, the Symphony, etc. are all an easy 'L' ride or short drive away.
