Today’s deal of the day from Chicago Rentals Direct happens to be one of the rentals Joe Zekas and I passed our recent drive through Bucktown: a two-bedroom / one-bath garden apartment in a smoke-free building at 1922 N Wood St, priced at $1,400 a month.
The home features a newly updated kitchen with granite countertops, cherry cabinets, dishwasher, microwave, and ice maker; a new bath; new windows; a mix of hardwood and tile floors; and central air conditioning. Tenants have access to a shared back deck and back yard, and can use a laundry room inside the building.
Parking is available for $100 a month, and cats and dogs are allowed with no additional deposit.
The home gets a “very walkable” 83 from Walk Score. Its “good” Transit Score of 63 is deceiving, because Walk Score still does not include Metra lines in its algorithm. The Clybourn Metra station is about 0.3 miles east of the apartment; from there, riders can reach the Ogilvie Transportation Center downtown in as little as 10 minutes during peak hours.
The deposit is $2,100; there are no move-in fees.
