My 4BR house is close to downtown and the U of I, a 7 min walk to the heart of Main Street and a 10 min walk to campus. Built in 1900, the house has the charm of old Moscow and the comforts of new renovation.
The house is shared between me and a young couple in grad school. We respect each other's privacy while sharing common spaces without issues. The downstairs guestroom (the available room here) shares a bathroom with my roommate. All common rooms are open and welcome to be used.
