Evanston house description

Three large bedrooms plus a smaller guest room; living room with wood-burning fireplace; dining room. Kitchen with pro stove; small office; 1-1/2 bathrooms; tv room, treadmill, nordictrack, futon that sleeps 2; laundry in basement; fenced-in yard; security system.

It's a warm and lovely home. Wood is stacked and ready for the fireplace. Includes utilities (heat and electricity), television, internet and a monthly cleaning person.

We've lived in our 1897 house for over 20 years. Great and safe neighborhood, convenient to transportation, shopping, schools, parks, great restuarants. It's southeast evanston, 1/2 mile from the lake, extremely convenient to Chicago, a 5-minute walk to public transportation, both elevated subway (cta) and commuter rail (metra.) There is also free shuttle bus service to Northwestern and Loyola Universities, running every half hour. Convenient driving--15 minutes to Lake Shore Drive or the Edens expressway. Ample street parking.

We've collected photography and folk-art for years and it is reflected throughout our historic home. You could spend hours just looking at the walls, which is definitely not the same thing as staring at the walls...

We love our neighbors! You will too. The last time someone stayed here, neighbors brought over a pie. Seriously.

We charge a $50 cleaning fee per stay. For long-term rental, cleaning is scheduled monthly. We've had the same cleaning person for years.

We expect guests to treat this as if it were their own home--no, wait--as if it were their parents' home. No smoking, pets, crazed drunken parties. We expect to come back to find our home in the same condition in which we left it. OK, you can leave a bottle of wine. That would be nice.
