About the Owner

I am a career corporate finance professional and a life-long Chicagoan and resident of the Lincoln Square neighborhood. My wife is an attorney and we have two lovely children, ages 16 and 8. We collect art and greatly enjoy world travel.
Virgil  purchased this Apartment in 1910
Why Virgil  chose Ravenswood
This 1-BR rental unit is on the second floor of a beautiful brick two-flat and has an open balcony that's great to hang out at in the warmer months. The building is quintessential Chicago and conveniently located near transportation, a great park, shopping, fine restaurants, pubs, cafes, quaint little shops and the Old Town School of Music that has hosted acclaimed musicians from all over the world. The neighborhood has everything to offer for all ages and backgrounds - playground for kids, art fairs and festivals for the entire family, wine-tasting for oenophiles, spa for the ladies, sports bars, a big park to walk/jog in, and many more. Around the corner is Lutz Continental Cafe and Pastry, a Chicago institution that draws visitors from all over the city. 
The property is in a quiet, tree-lined block that is easy to get to and from many other points of interests in the city.
What makes this Apartment unique

Enjoyable stay
Vicki S

Everything was accurate as described. The location was wonderful. Quiet, safe, family oriented neighborhood. Everything I needed was within walking distance. Grocery stores, restaurants, shopping, parks were 5-15 minute walk away. My purpose was to visit my son and his family. I had a 5 minute drive to Larchmont Ave. perfect for my needs. Definitely read the suggestions provided by the owner. Great place to return to after being out all day. I was pleased with amenities, cleanliness, ease of communication with owner and definitely the ambiance. It was an older place yet well cared for. Brought back memories of my grandparents homes which I enjoyed Seriously consider this property

We had a great time in Chicago. The property was exactly as it was described and Virgil was an excellent host. Highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a location walking distance from good restaurants, parks and the train station to go downtown.
