My roommates and I are moving out of our awesome five bedroom house in Glover Park on June 30. It is approximately 30 seconds away from everything on Wisconsin including Bourbon, Whole Foods and two strip clubs. It has a backyard and a driveway that can fit 3-4 cars. There are four regular bedrooms plus one English basement with a kitchen, bathroom and its own outside entrance. Pass this along to friends, enemies, whatever. Let me know if you or someone you know is interested! Thanks.
