Welcome to Old Town, one of the Windy City’s most historic and desirable neighborhoods. Early immigrants to Chicago, mainly German and Irish settlers who put their mark on the community, settled the Old Town Triangle Historic District. It was originally a farming community and then became an area popular with laborers. Today, it’s a thriving and up and coming area equally long on culture and amenities and a central location sure to knock out that long commute from this gorgeous executive rental.
A Short Term Rental in a Hot Market
There’s so much to see and do here; Chicago continues to set tourism records (54 million tourists in 2016 alone) to see its world-renown sights. From this fully furnished two-bedroom, two bath furnished house in Old Town, it’s only five minutes to Lincoln Park and the Zoo and just ten minutes drive to the Navy Pier and The Magnificent Mile. And it is only fifteen minutes to the Cubs at Wrigley Field, The Willis Tower, the Bulls and Blackhawks at the United Center, or the Adler Planetarium.
Granted “landmark” status in honor of its curb appeal and cultural relevance, this historic cottage has been renovated and upgraded inside and out while preserving its roots. But the great CHBO Certified photos tell the story of this home, sitting along the tree-lined thoroughfare of North Mohawk Street, in a community brimming with culture, history, and fun. An extended stay here means you can walk, jog, or use a bike share to get to gyms, farmers markets, grocery stores, and literally dozens of great restaurants. Walk, bike, play soccer, baseball, and more at Lincoln Park, or visit the free zoo or Chicago History Museum. If you drove, getting back to this furnished rental home is easy – there’s an external one-car garage reserved for corporate tenants. It can be difficult to find furnished rentals on Chicago’s north side with provided parking, not to mention a home this beautiful, so you should hurry before it’s gone by contacting the owner through the listing or call Avena, at 1-773-294-5371 today!
