I hope you enjoy this charming apartment, built in 1924, as much as I have. Just three miles to the heart of town, a straight shot to the Stadium, easy access to I-94, very close to many amenities and bus. Little stone building with two units and it shares two acres with main house and owner. Dirt and gravel drive and parking. We are more shabby chic yard than manicured lawns. Fenced, on a busy road, in the center of a vibrant and growing area yet retains it's historic "country" feel.
The lighting as it changes throughout the day, the mature trees, the soft curved ceilings and wood floors, the private little deck and plant life combine to create an uplifting and inviting environment where it is easy to relax and enjoy life.
As a historic property there are quirks that I have come to love and always some project going on. A few of our unique characteristics are that we have dirt/gravel parking, you'll need to open and close a car gate when you come and go and we are on well water and septic.
Guests have full use of the private, upstairs apartment, upstairs deck and grounds. We have more of a prairie style shabby chic yard than a chemically green and manicured lawn. Everyone enjoys the fire flies, bird and frog sounds. You have your own entrance that leads up stairs to the apartment.
We have added a double size futon bed to the living room to accommodate any additional guests. This also makes a lovely place to nap with great views from all directions!
I live on the property and am around much of the time should you need anything but I won't intrude on your privacy.
There is a professional couple that live in the front house which is further away than most neighborhood homes. They are incredibly nice people though you probably won't interact with them but may see them when parking.

Due to overwhelming feedback I've added a 55" TV with 500 channels for your enjoyment. We lost five very large evergreens in the wind storm February 2017 and are still cleaning up from that event. There are three cats and two dogs that share these two acres. The dogs are very well cared for, live in a different building and don't run loose in the yard but have their own big fenced area. They are never in your apartment. Two of the cats live with them and are never in your apartment. One of the cats... Bella Verde Ojos (Bella for short) has a tendency to spy.... incase you are fun to play with. Just let me know if this creates any problems for you and I will contain the stalker. :-) There is no sidewalk or street lights until you cross the street.
-No smoking in house or on deck. Please dispose of butts properly. Don't leave them in the yard. I charge extra for picking up cigarette butts!
Please watch for pet cat in driveway :-)
-Please close the car gate immediately after entering or exiting.
-No parties. Only registered guests allowed to use the apartment
-Downloading illegal material from the internet is strictly prohibited!
-I appreciate recycling.
-Please respect the neighbors and the environment by observing quiet time after 10 p.m.
Thanks for adhering to these guidelines!
I spent much of my career working in unique, one of a kind, restaurants and hotels. Many of these were located in historic buildings. I came to love these creative spaces which lent so much to people's gatherings. Instead of just a square and stale box these places were warm and filled with character.
As your host I also reside on the property so if you need anything I am easy to reach, however, I am very respectful of your privacy.
