About this listing
This huge, light soaked, 1 bedroom has room for everyone! Located close enough to the city to be convenient but quiet. Enjoy the half acre secret, private garden & the earthy art scene that's thriving in this unique community. It's pure grit & glory!
This is such an unusual location. 312 Whipple is an artist community that has been thriving and feeding the Chicago Art Scene for 25 years. It's a gem tucked secretly in a secure gated block with access to an unprecedented amount of outdoor space. The gardens alone are enchanting. Visit some authentic live/work studios or catch an exhibit if you can!
Amazing private garden. Great proximity to downtown, The United Center and public transportation. Free secure, gated parking. Bike share program around the corner.

Our quality of life depends on how well we deal with adversity! Feel positive. Live positive. I grew up in a small costal town in Maine. When I turned 19 I realized that I was a closet wanderer. So I hit the road and covered much of the U.S. and all of Europe. I taught skiing in the Rockies and rode my BMW R65-LS from coast to coast. When I was in Europe I was amazed at how willing people were to open their homes to a total stranger. I had one of my best experiences living with a family in Romania in the Carpathian Mountains. Amazing! I feel this is the best way possible to travel. It's part of why I love Air B&B. Hotel shmotel! Live the life of the area. That's an experience. Now my wandering days are over. I'm rooted in one of the coolest communities I know. Rich with art and spirit. I have two amazing girls that help me garden, can, collect eggs and milk. My partner is a fellow East Coast boy, avid hockey player and my right hand man. I also tour with an ABBA tribute band as well as a Pink Floyd tribute band but don't hold that against me. I hope you like it here half as much as we do!!
