À propos de ce logement
Fixing up this historical four-bedroom Tudor-style house from 1912. Moved from Brooklyn last year in search of more space for less $. Renovations still in progress, but the place is cozy.
There's no a/c, but there is a window fan in the bedroom, and windows with both southern and western exposure.
As noted above, this is a 105-year-old house that I bought in 2015 as a live-in fixer-upper--i.e., it has all the basics in place, and I'm gradually fixing/restoring all aspects of it, including gut renovations of some sections, and cosmetic improvements all around. (That said, I will not be doing any work that would disturb my guests while they're occupying the guest room.) If you're interested in such projects--and who isn't?--I'd be glad to show you around and discuss my experience with the house, and answer questions. Detroit is an amazing place if you want the most house for the money, as well as a vibrant city that's on the cusp (yet again) of really great things!
Accès des voyageurs
You'll have free access to all the house, except the two rooms I use for my office and bedroom, and the attic, which is used for storage. The back yard is available for your use in temperate weather. For less temperate weather, the house has a working fireplace in the living room. I've used it during the winter, and it provides a high degree of "Gemütlichkeit."
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I work from home, which means I'm around the house more often than not. Glad to help in any way I can, with suggestions for things to see/do, places to visit, etc. And if you like coffee, I make a mean latté--glad to set you up with one.
The bathroom on the second floor, with all the bedrooms, is a bit rough cosmetically at the moment, but all fixtures are functioning normally.
There is also a second shower and toilet in the basement bathroom. To mitigate the inconvenience of tromping down all the steps, I'm equipping the guest room with a bathrobe and slippers. :-)
Also, the house is equipped with a state-of-the-art security system, which is easy to operate.
The usual common courtesies expected--please keep common areas neat (e.g., dishes washed, if using kitchen), and no raucous noise after, say, 11pm.
