Everything you need is in this compact two-level apartment on the first level of a vintage building. A queen-size bed, upper level dining area, bamboo hardwood floors, amarble bathroom, kitchen lined with subway tile and a terrazzo floor, mid century modern furnishings, all the linens and kitchen utensils you need, private entrances -- and a lovely garden for dining al fresco. Architect-designed and master carpenter built, this is a unique apartment.
I live on the top floor of this building, which my husband, an architect, and I bought thirty years ago. We have enjoyed living here and renting to interesting people who share our love of this Mediterranean style vintage brick building. It's on a corner of two quiet streets, but only minutes from lively areas on the north side where I grew up.
June Finfer purchased this studio in 1982
We bought this building because of its location in a real Chicago neighborhood, its proximity to music and theatre events in the center city and the north shore,
and because we love to take walks and see people from all different backgrounds enjoying the park. Cycling paths are nearby, and O'Hare airport is a short drive away. We call it 'the old country' because so many people we meet who have moved way out to the suburbs are from this area, and remember it with fondness. Young people are once again moving here, and it's great to see all ages, all kinds of people living together in these vintage buildings.
We had been renting a large apartment of the same vintage (1928) just east of here, and when we decided to buy a building we discovered this area, just a mile from our apartment. We called it 'Brigadoon' because it just seemed to appear one day -- it had 'old world charm' and Mediterranean arches and ironwork. The apartments were flooded with light from tall windows with no other buildings nearby (on a corner). We completely rewired the building and improved the kitchens, and the final touch is completing the lst level apartment that we are offering for vacation and short term rentals. We enjoy our tree-lined street, the shady backyard with a new trellis and hope you will, too.
Really enjoyed my stay here. Very clean and comfortable ground floor studio apartment. Nice area. Unusual layout, which I really liked. June is also a great and accommodating person to work with. Would definitely recommend; in fact, I hope to go back again soon.
Nice place, plenty of room for 2 or 3. Good value as well. Interesting diverse neighborhood, clean & safe.
Parking was a challenge especially late at night. I would stay there again. Approx 30 minutes from the Loop.
My husband and I had a great mini-vacation here. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We loved that it was off the beaten path, but close enough to public transportation. We also liked that it was fairly close to Andersonville. June allowed us to use the bicycles (with locks) which we loved and we used to go down to the Lake a couple of times (about a mile away). All in all, a very nice stay. Loved the back patio too.
Stayed here while visiting nearby relatives for the holidays. Everything worked and it was a nice weekend. Bumped my knees several times on the wooden bed frame. Careful!
I came to Chicago to attend my nephews birthday. I wanted a nice quiet place to stay at a affordable price. I hit the jackpot on both accounts. The studio was in a quiet neighborhood. The price was very affordable. The property was very clean, well stocked with pillows towels and blankets. The kitchen was well stocked with necessities. You need to bring your food and beverage preferences. The internet access was good. The TV channels were limited. Bed was comfortable. I would recommend this property wholeheartedly.
What a wonderful anniversary trip! My husband and I enjoyed the clean and spacious studio and found it a relaxing safe haven after spending the majority of each day exploring Chicago and nearby cities. The apartment and neighborhood was quiet, and with the use of public transportation (local bus stop and L train) we did not have to move our car once during our vacation until it was time to leave. Thank you June for being so accommodating! We enjoyed preparing breakfast meals in the kitchen each morning before heading out and slept soundly on the comfortable bed. We would recommend some more kitchen utensils such as spatulas, baking dishes, and cookie sheets for future guests. Overall an excellent stay and we will be returning in the future!
