I'm a condo owner on the border of East and West Rogers Park and Evanston (60645). I've owned this unit since 2013, and rehabbed it over 2 years to a luxury look, but now I spend more time in Ohio with a job I took here in Cincinnati. Rather than renting it out, I'm looking for the opportunity to take on a very mature-minded graduate student, teacher/professor, or professional person for a roommate situation. You would have the full condo to yourself at least 80% or more of the time. Therefore, you must be a responsible and trustworthy person who can look after the property for me in my absence. Basically, you would pay for 1/2 the condo as a roommate, but have alone for the most part, except for my occasional trips to Chicago when I would also stay in it.

Here is what you get:

1. Beautiful 2nd Floor 2 bedroom 2 bath 1100-square ft Renovated and Furnished Condo in Rogers Park (2 blocks east of Ridge and 2 blocks south of Howard). Vintage brick building rehabbed originally in 2003 and unit renovated by me in 2014.

2. New Central AC/Heat, Electric, Gas Fireplace, TV with Roku/Leaf Antenna, U-Verse 45 Mg High Speed Internet/WiFi -ALL INCLUDED!

3. No other roommates, please. You would be renting the 2nd bedroom and 2nd bathroom with full privilege to Common Areas: Living Room, Kitchen, separate Dining, Hallways, Shared Balcony.

4. 2nd Private Bedroom (yours) is furnished with Queen Bed, Linens, Small Dresser, 2 Nightstands, 2 Lamps, Ceiling Fan, Rug, Artwork, Extra Shelving, Ironing Board (which is shared). Large Closet and Window. You are free to redecorate, but the bed is not removable.

5. 2nd Bathroom (yours) has shower room, new granite vessel bowl vanity, and high end fixtures. It is directly next to the bedroom. This bathroom also serves as the main shared bathroom and shower room if there are guests.

6. Master bathroom (mine) has a Jacuzzi bathtub that you are welcome to use with permission when I'm not in the bedroom or bathroom. Otherwise those areas are private.

7. Common Living Room is furnished with couch and seating, Flat Screen TV / High-Speed Internet, Large Working Gas Fireplace.

8. Office area in Living Room. You are welcome to use one of the two desks, small filing cabinet, and adjacent bookshelves.

9. I have a full weighted 88-key piano electronic keyboard in unit that you can use.

10. WiFi is included.

11. Newly Refinished Hardwood Floors Throughout.

12. Kitchen appointed with Cherry Cabinets / Granite Countertops / Stainless Steel Appliances / Dishwasher. Large Dining Room Table and separate Bar Stool area (good for eating or computer work) along with Loveseat and Exposed Brick makes it a great hangout area. I have a lot of cooking equipment you can use, although I may bring some of it back to Ohio.

13. Furnished and Decorated Balcony (shared with our neighbors) off the Kitchen. Have outdoor caf table and chairs, and the use of neighbor's BBQ grill.

14. In-unit new high-end Washer/Dryer.

15. Walking distance to Howard Red and Purple line Stop, Jarvis Red Line Stop, and Howard and Clark Bus Lines. The Metra at Lunt is also walking distance.

16. Borders both East and West Rogers Park and Evanston. Near Loyola, Northwestern, Lake Michigan, Andersonville, Lincolnwood, Skokie, Lake Shore Drive, I-94 Edens Expressway.

17. Blocks from LA Fitness, the Peckish Pig restaurant, Starbucks, Heartland Caf, Common Cup, Sol Caf, Mayne Stage. Quick Purple Line el ride to downtown Evanston. Two or three Red Line stops from Loyola. Red Line and 22 Clark bus go to Andersonville, Wrigleyville, downtown Chicago, etc.

18. Possibility to share my parking space (which is with another building) for additional expense.

19. There is some room for basic storage in the basement storage locker. The unit is fully furnished and there is very little room for more furniture in the unit.

20. You must keep all areas of the condo, whether personal or shared, neat and clean. Included in rent is a cleaning service once per month. You will need to arrange a time for them to clean when you can be present in the unit.

21. You can play music or TV at low-normal volumes. It is a quiet building and you are requested to not make noise at higher volumes.

About me: I am a female professional. I am clean and neat, work out a lot, go out with friends, stay home often when I'm in town including working at home during the day, and sometimes have friends over. I may occasionally have my rescue Chihuahua with me in the condo.

About you: You are dependable, responsible, easy going, respectful, and reasonably clean, neat, and quiet. No preference of gender. You will need to pay a modest fee for a credit/background check - typically $15. Sorry, no other pets.

Since I'm in Ohio for the most part right now, we will need to set up an initial Skype meeting. If agreed, I will schedule a time to meet in Chicago and show you the condo.
