Rent a 2-bedroom Lincoln Square gut rehab for $1,208
Rent a 2-bedroom Lincoln Square gut rehab for $1,208

In Lincoln Square, this two-bedroom gut-renovatedapartment is a find in this dramatic Tudor-style building. The rent of $1,208 is on par with the neighborhood average, which runs about $1,350 for two-bedroom places and $1,624 for three-bedroom places, according to Chicago Apartment Finders.

Its not only a fair price, but the interior's complete rehab makes the place a notch better than the typical vintage flat. For instance, its luxury kitchen of stainless-steel appliances, tile flooring and granite counter tops isn't a revamping a renter is guaranteed to find in an older building. And with summer heat approaching, you'll be relieved to know that this historic pad has also been modernized with air conditioning and an in-unit washer and dryer.

Once you've admired your new space with its hardwood floors and rooms soaking with sunlight, next comes the best part. You'll step outside and realize this sweet rental is sandwiched between two vivacious Chicago neighborhoods.
