About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Condo with Bonus Room

This warm, cozy condo is located a block from Downtown in a beautiful, majestic one hundred year old all-brick building. The building and the condo have been newly renovated. It has many wonderful features including high ceilings, large windows, natural original woodwork and newly refinished hardwood floors. Only a short walk away (2-5 blocks) are the Bloomington Center for Performing Arts, the Bloomington Coliseum, the McLean County Museum of History, numerous art galleries, boutiques, excellent restaurants and night spots. Yet it is located in a quiet, low traffic area. Electricity, gas, water, high-speed internet, satellite TV and condo fees are all included in the rental fee. The condo is completely furnished, including linens, dishes and cookware.

About Nancy

I have enjoyed living in Downtown Bloomington since 2007. In fact, I truly love downtown living, and couldn't imagine living anywhere else!

Nancy purchased this condo in 2016

Why Nancy chose Bloomington

I had driven by this condo building for many years and admired the beautiful black brick exterior. When I noticed a condo for sale in the building, I decided to take a look, and immediately fell in love with it. It just exudes coziness.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite feature of the condo is all the beautiful wood: hardwood floors, wood framed windows and huge sliding wood doors separating the dining room and living room. The large windows, all of which open, make the condo bright and provide great air flow, with windows on three sides. The back porch is a bonus, compete with gas grill.

Location, Charm, Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Our needs where few, a place to sleep while we visited relatives. What we found was, we spent as much time as we could, in our pleasant rental! I tried to identify what the attraction was, the lovely floors, worn from many footsteps. The light filtering through the wooden blinds. The softest sheets over a firm mattress to soothe tired bones. All of these are wonderful along with the neighborhood, Saturday Farmers Market, historical buildings, super fast WiFi. We found the location a breeze to hop on the Interstate, making our daily trip to the folks simple to navigate. We could have gotten a motel, this was special for two sisters that could use some pampering. We whispered and giggled way into the night!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 3 weeks while working nearby and it was very nice to have a fully furnished place with kitchen, laundry, and all of the comforts of home. Close to stores and restaurants with nearby access to the highway for travel.

We loved our stay in this condo.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking to stay in central Illinois for almost 4 weeks and this condo met our needs perfectly. While the building is old, it was very clean and offered a lot of charm. Nancy could not have been more accommodating. When the cable went out, she stayed at the condo and waited for the repair man so that we were free to do other things. While there, you must go by Rosie's Pub on Front Street. Food was excellent. Saturday's during the summer there is Farmer's Market just steps away. Can't say enough good things about our stay.

Owner's Response: I am so very happy that you enjoyed your stay in Bloomington and particularly happy you loved staying in the condo! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed Rosie's (in another historic downtown building). And yes, our wonderful Farmer's Market right downtown every Saturday morning from May through October! Very best wishes to you and please come back!

Charming Condo, perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We were in Bloomington to visit for the Holidays. This quaint condo was everything we hoped for and more. We were able to cook our meals in the nicely furnished kitchen, eat and linger at the roomy dining room table which was wonderful. I say this because it just doesn't feel like a holiday dinner to us when we have to go to a restaurant so this was perfect!

Everything was clean and very well maintained.

We will definitely stay here again.
