The original details in my Midtown Colonial apartment are sure to give you a sense of life over a hundred years ago. The original oak floors, woodwork, and fireplace surround have all been restored and refinished.
While a brand new spacious bathroom with floor to ceiling tile and a giant rain shower head bring you a bit more into modern day. I think my place is extremely cozy with several different sitting areas and a working electric fireplace to boot. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
The numerous windows keep my place open and bright with a well laid out floor plan. The brand new bathroom is on one end of the apartment, kitchen and living area in the middle, and the bedroom on the opposite end from the bathroom.
I've tried to set it up so you have several different sitting areas; a couple in the living area with either a comfy sofa or a relaxing chair facing the TV equipped with netflix. A small kitchen table with a couple bar stools is also a good place eat a meal you brought in from one of the many nearby restaurants or a meal you prepared yourself in the equipped kitchen with all the essentials (salt, pepper, olive oil)
In the bedroom, turn on the electric fireplace that puts out a good amount of heat and get some reading done or use the antique desk in the corner for when you need to buckle down and handle your business.
This is just one apartment in a building of 8. There is shared laundry in the finished basement in the rear of the building downstairs
The property is in the front of the building so it's closest to the street in front which has no parking restrictions - but you are also welcome to park in the private parking behind the building (access from the narrow driveway to the left).
You will have full access in the apartment; there are no locked doors or cabinets.
Interaction with Guests:
You'll receive a digital code a three days before your arrival for the front door which means that 24 hour check-in is no problem at all! Any questions and we can be reached 24 hours a day by sending us a quick message.
I'm also staying in another apartment at the property so I am close by if you need me.
I will send you a text with a link to my guidebook I'm working on before your arrival but you will also have additional information inside the apartment with contacts, transportation and other general info
Walk out the front door and 100 yards down the street brings you to a bustling corner with a jazz restaurant, Moroccan and Mexican restaurants and, of course, a delicious BBQ joint. Keep walking or take a short uber another .75 miles to Overton square, one of Memphis' most happening areas with a host of other restaurants and bars.
Head downtown the other direction in a short uber ($6) and you'll find yourself engulfed in Memphis' blues scene on the famous Beale street.
In addition to the many great eateries (which you'll find in the guidebook i'll send you) there are several parks nearby and places to relax.
Uber or Lyft are readily available and definitely the best option.
There is a trolley that runs down Madison and will bring you to downtown if you want a little more of a historic experience heading downtown.
Other Things to Note:
The whole building has a total of 8 apartments and this apartment is on the second floor towards the front of the building.
There is also a shared patio on the second floor that you are welcome to use and relax :)
You also have access to laundry in the finished basement down the stairs in the rear of the building and are welcome to use the laundry detergent. Please just remember to take your clothes with you and not leave them down there!
