If you've always wanted to live on a former army base but don't want to make a permanent commitment, you're in luck. A 2-bedroom, 2 ½ bath townhome in what used to enlisted men's quarters is available for rent in the Highland Park section of the former Fort Sheridan.
The home, at 245 Whistler Rd, was built in the 1880s and converted to civilian use when a part of Fort Sheridan was decommissioned in the 1990s. It's since been updated with granite countertops, 42-inch cabinets but retains some of the historic finishes.
The home is a short distance from the beautiful bluffs along Lake Michigan. The $2,750 a month rent includes two heated garage spaces.
Prudential Rubloff's Monica Miara has the listing.
