Overview

UPDATE SUMMER 2018: This summer we are making some additional updates to the house, including adding one additional queen bed (upstairs), remodeling three bathrooms, adding a new half bathroom downstairs, and doubling the size of the kitchen.  New floor plans are already available online and photos will be updated by the end of September.

-----

We have been working to renovate the house over the past several years, seeking to preserve historic details including 13' ceilings with plaster medallions, heart pine wood floors, cypress doors, and a 125-year old oak tree. At the same time, we updated the layout to more comfortably accommodate large groups:

  • 18-person dining room table
  • Oversized living room with 70-inch television, surround sound system, and Baldwin upright piano
  • Private yard (1/3 acre) with fire pit, six-burner propane BBQ, outdoor table, and hammocks
  • Super-fast WiFi (the top tier that Cox offers)
  • Front porch (gallery) with historic gas lamps and outdoor seating
  • Off-street parking for two cars and ample street parking for overflow

 

Bedrooms

The house has eight bedrooms with layout as follows:

Downstairs

  • Bedroom 1: one queen bed (semi-private bathroom - shower)
  • Bedroom 2: one queen bed (ensuite bathroom - shower)

Upstairs

  • Bedroom 3: one queen bed (ensuite bathroom - shower/tub combo)
  • Bedroom 4: one double bed
  • Bedroom 5: one twin bunkbed 
  • Bedroom 6: one king bed
  • Bedroom 7: two queen beds (semi-private bathroom - shower)
  • Bedroom 8: one king bed

There is another shared bathroom upstairs (near the laundry room) with a clawfoot tub-shower combination.  

Unfortunately, the caretaker's cottage is no longer available for rent.

Outdoor Space

The house is located on an oversized, corner lot with multiple outdoor spaces:

  • The side yard is fenced for privacy and has a large law panel surrounded by gravel (limestone), with several bistro sets and a colorful bench.  This yard can accommodate a 30' x 30' tent for events.
  • The cottage yard has a large lawn, oak tree, magnolia tree, and hedge.  We generally do not allow tents in this yard.
  • The rear courtyard is paved and fenced.  It includes a large table with seating for 20 and a six-burner BBQ, as well as overhead string lights.
  • The back corner of the side yard has seating for 12 around a natural gas-fed fire pit and a water fountain.
