With all of the negative headlines we’re used to seeing about Englewood, it might not be the first place you’d look for a rental, but that doesn’t mean nice ones aren’t available. If this photo is any indication, this four-bedroom, two-bathroom single family home in Englewood would look at home in the Oak Park of Ernest Hemingway’s childhood. Located at 6752 S Perry Ave, the three-story, newly renovated home has walk-in closets in the bedrooms, a decorative fireplace and recessed lighting. It’s also pre-wired for cable and broadband.
With its fenced-in yard and abundance of greenspace, the landlord of this place can also tout quick access to the Loop. Depending on the circumstances, you can be downtown in less than 20 minutes – the home is just 1.5 blocks from both the Dan Ryan Expressway and the Red Line. But the rent of $1,600 per month, which would seem like a steal in many neighborhoods, strikes me as high for the area.
