About William Harty

One of our other passions is music. I was involved with the Guardsmen Drum and Bugle Corps for 26 years, as a marching member for 10 years and 16 as a choreographer and director. My whole family was involved in one way or another. My sister Celeste and Paul were members while sisters Claudia and Regina, followed and helped with management. My father was very active as director and my mother sewed flags and followed us every where.

My son has followed in music and was a member of the Green Thunder Percussion Ensemble and has been taking piano lessons for 15 years.

I am currently president of Ray's Hvac, a heating and air conditioning company that my father Ray started in 1956. My mother and brother Paul work for the company as well.

My son and I have 3 dogs: Minnie Pearl, a Jack Russell/Pomeranian, Magnolia, a Fox Terrier, and Mr. Conrad, a Border Collie. Both Minnie Pearl and Mr. Conrad were rescued from visits to Ireland.

We are involved along with my sister Claudia with Young at Hearts, a senior pet rescue and adoption organization. My son also volunteers at the Animal Care League of Oak Park.

My son and I are parishioners at St. John the Baptist in Winfield, and I am also a member of the Human Rights Campaign.

About Us

William Harty, owner

Being from Chicago, I always had a vision of owning a grand 4 flat in Rogers Park, Residence on the Avenue. The architecture was very different from other areas in the city.

As a young man, and even now, I love the drive north from the city up Lake Shore Drive and continuing on to the historic Sheridan Road.

The building was purchased in 2003, and in 2006 we did a major rehab. After doing full time rentals, we decided to do vacation rentals in two of the condos. We felt some thing this great should be shared.

I am president of our family owned heating and air conditioning company in Schaumburg Il. It is Ray's HVAC and 59 years in business. I am a member of the

What makes this condo unique

This condo because it is on the top floor is amazing on a sunny day. The grand open floor plan is great for gatherings. Even if you are working away in this great kitchen you can enjoy the rest of you family or friends at the granite breakfast bar. The master bath is also a great feature of this condo with the whirlpool and separate shower.

Wonderful Condo close to Northwestern, Lake Michigan and Downtown

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in the 3rd floor of this beautiful condo in June for our son's graduation from Northwestern. It has a lovely vibe and is spotlessly clean. The stairs are a bit of a climb but we liked the exercise! The garage is small but we managed to get our rented minivan into it and were well advised by Ross about that challenge. We made the decision to rent the garage and it worked out great. Ross was perfectly present - not too much but available when we needed him. Thank you for a wonderful stay. If our next college bound student goes to school in Chicago we will definitely stay here again!

Beautiful,comfortable apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our "girls" week in Chicago was fantastic! Very beautiful, spacious apartment in the Rogers Park area of Chicago. We were able to enjoy many activities in Chicago & the North Shore. It was nice to have garage parking. Only drawback was that we were in the third floor unit so lots of stairs to climb ( we were a group of 4 women all in our 60's) wish we had chosen the 2nd floor unit but all in all it was a great stay! Ross, the caretaker was very helpful with info about restaurants in the area and public transportation was easily accessible. We chose to use Uber for some of our outings and the price was reasonable. Unit is beautiful & the beds were very comfy!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My dad, brother, and I stayed here for 4 nights in August and it was great. Lots of space, good quality, and Ross (property mgr) was excellent. Next time we're back in Chicago, will definitely be hoping this spot is available.

Beautiful condo. Close to downtown Chicago.

  • 5 of 5

Real nice place and neighborhood, very quiet. Dog friendly. Condo is 3 flights up so if you have any issues with stairs be aware. My husband has a problem with stairs and just went slow. The stairs from the garage area are a little tricky but he managed. He uses a cane. Close to Lake Michigan which is just beautiful with beaches. Nice highway in to the city of Chicago. We had no problem finding parking in the city. It is expensive to park. Great place to shop and the restaurants are great.

Location was excellent in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood. Thank you William and Ross!

  • 5 of 5

Location was excellent in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood. Grocery store, Walgreens and train within 15 minute walk.

Ross met us (five adults) when we arrived and was very welcoming and helpful. Upon our arrival he highlighted a number of items in a 'welcome' binder with local restaurants, delivery services, transportation services, wifi connection, etc. He gave us a tour of this very spacious condo to point out the many features. Many items were provided in this rental that are not usually provided: paper towel, coffee filters, hand soap, toilet paper, etc. This was a nice touch. The condo was great to come back to at the end of a day sightseeing and attending sporting events. The only recommendation we would make is adding a mirror to the smaller bedroom to do hair and makeup. We highly recommend this rental and will definitely rent in the future!

great place for families to stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean, spacious, within walking distance of the L and several groceries and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

Please note that the entrance is a three story walk up narrow stairs, so elderly or frail individuals might prefer to stay on level 2 or reserve a place elsewhere.
