Enjoy summer in Chicago in this well-appointed and centrally located 2bd/2ba unit. The condo is located in a historic building, originally the home of Chess Records, and features concrete and brick accents, soaring windows, and modern finishes.

Approximately 1000sq ft, the unit was fully renovated in 2019. Both bathrooms are spacious, bright, and clean with a tub (guest) and shower (master). The guest bedroom/office is ideal for work with a comfortable desk and chair. A full-sized Murphy bed is also available for the occasional guest. The great room includes the kitchen, living area, and dining table, with updated appliances, a well supplied kitchen, spacious seating, and TV. Finally the generous master bedroom includes a queen sized bed, reading lights, storage, and walk-in closet. Outside on the patio, you're greeted by a spacious deck with a grill, comfortable sectional, and night-lights for morning coffee or evening drinks. The unit also has a washer/dryer and central air. The building is generally quiet with friendly neighbors, building staff on-site, a small gym, and rooftop.

The unit is located in the historic Prairie District/South Loop neighborhood, steps away from the Chicago lakefront, public transportation, and amenities. Grocery stores, shops and restaurants are within a short walk. Public beaches and several landmark museums are biking distance away. We're also just south of the Loop and Millennium Park which features many summer concerts, movies, shows, and outdoor events all season.

The unit is ideal for 2 people max. Pets will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Available July-September for rental or pet-friendly home exchange in the US, Canada, Europe, or Mexico-- open to location.
