My home is a 1907 Victorian with lots of rustic charm. Whenever people enter they say it reminds them of their ancestral home. There is a beautiful backyard garden with fruit trees, berry bushes, an herb and veg garden, and chickens. Porch swing too!
My home is a 1907 Victorian with lots of rustic charm. Whenever people enter this house, they always say it reminds them of their ancestral home- whether that is a farmhouse in France, in the mountains of Nepal, or in Northern Wisconsin. I guess it makes people feel they are removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, and in place where they can completely relax and settle in.
This house is ideal for a professional or graduate student. I am an acupuncturist who is relatively quiet, likes to read, cook, listen to records on our player, and loves to garden in our large and very wild forest-like backyard. I take care of our three chickens in the back who give us a delicious egg a piece each morning while needing very little care in return. We also have a vegetable and herb garden, a pond, and a 100-year old barn in the back. It is a very large lot, over 200ft so there is plenty of space for sitting outside to read, have breakfast, or watch the wildlife that goes on back there. We always have rabbits, birds, and squirrels to observe!
The house has only had 2 owners so it remains very much as it was when it was built, except for new wood windows, and the hard wood floors have all been exposed and finished. There are many antique details that give the house a very warm, rustic, and lived in feel to it. You would share the house with me and have your own room at the top in the attic which has the most privacy in the house. You also have an optional second room to be used as an office. There is one bathroom with a large claw foot tub in it. There is also a yoga/meditation room on the top floor, as well as a porch swing, and a berry patch of raspberries, currants, and gooseberries out front. Washer Dryer is free downstairs and all utilities are included. Parking is very easy on the street right outside the door. We are very close to the metra and the CTA at Granville and Loyola.
I am looking for long and short term tenants so please feel free to email me.

I am an acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine practitioner who recently returned to Chicago after living abroad for about a decade. I studied Thai Massage in Thailand for several years, then became interested in Buddhist philosophy and meditation so traveled to Kathmandu Nepal to study with a Tibetan lama for a year. While I was there I worked with a very skilled practitioner of Chinese Medicine and so decided to pursue my studies in Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine back in the US. After studying for four years post-graduate, I went back to Asia to volunteer in Nepal, Bali, and Thailand, and then founded a non-profit to send more acupuncture volunteers to work in free Nepali clinics. I enjoy my work immensely and still travel to Asia a few times each year. I moved back to Chicago a few years go and bought a beautiful 100 year old home last year. I still travel quite a bit and so am looking for a responsible roommate to share my peaceful space with. When I am in Chicago I am also an avid tango dancer and yoga practitioner. I enjoy having the occasional dinner party with tango friends, or guest for breakfast in the garden, but in general the house is very quiet and calm.
