Great house for a large group of people. Great location within walking distance of transit.

  • 5 of 5

Great house that is accommodating for a large group of people. Close to the L train Oak Park station. There's lots of restaurants, bars, breweries nearby that give variety. The coziness of the neighborhood makes it a great place to go walking. The house has a lot of living space, so there is no worry of feeling cramped.
