Evanston, Illinois locations are in the St Francis Hospital neighborhood. Walking distance to the South Blvd. "EL" stop (two blocks), and the Main St. Metra train (one half mile).

Additional location in Rogers Park - two blocks ( four minute walk), west of Sheridan RD, Loyola University, and the Loyola "EL" stop. Directly across from St. Ignatius Church (one of the largest Catholic parishes in Chicago, and a major landmark). Residential street of mostly condominiums; twelve minute drive to Northwestern University. (Also, many recent condo conversions in the area.) Rogers Park is Chicago, Illinois' northern most lakefront neighborhood, adjacent to Evanston.
The most exciting apartment feature is all new - all white- top of the line kitchens with eight-foot tall cabinets, and new appliances (including dishwashers and built in microwaves over the stove).
The most unusual feature is a professional lighting design, a magnitude and quality found in luxury homes. This includes:
- Recessed lighting in every room
- Ceiling fans (with lights)
- Wall sconces
- Fun halogen accent lighting in the dining room
- Kitchen lighting above and below all cabinets, plus recessed lights over the sink
- Three to six light switches per room (with dimmers)
- Complete rewiring including abundant electric outlets
Many residents do not buy any lamps.
Full sized washers and dryers are included in all Evanston three bedroom apartments- (In three-unit apartment buildings). This is a very unusual feature for an Evanston apartment. Many people have rented the apartments for this feature alone (which is hard to live without, once you've had it).
Landscaping with an abundance of flowers; each apartment building has a private back yard, professionally designed, with many trees, flowers, bushes, a deck, concrete patio table, and a gas BBQ grill. Many Chicago area apartments do not have a place where you can enjoy being outside.
