Our beautiful town home is brand-new construction located in the heart of downtown South Bend, directly on the river! The front gates of Notre Dame are just 1.25 miles away, making an easy walk to the football stadium in under 25 minutes. Our patio with a gas grill and a large (shared) yard is perfect for a pre-game bbq. The house boasts spectacular views of the waterfall and historic downtown, mere yards away from the St. Joseph River bike path, and is within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, theaters, museums, and the year-round Farmer's Market.
The house has four floors, including a finished basement/media room with a projector and 13-foot screen, and a 4th-floor sunroom with 55-inch flat screen TV, wet bar, and two large decks -- one overlooking the river with, very literally, the best views in town!
Sleeping accommodations include 1 queen bed, 1 full, 1 twin, 2 queen-size sleeper sofas, and 1 full-size sleeper sofa. Master bedroom includes a spa-like private bath, with marble countertops, a 30 sq-foot walk-through shower with 3 shower heads, and an oversized jacuzzi soaking tub. Guest rooms share a spacious full bathroom with marble countertops, shower/tub, and linen closet. Sleeper sofas in the office and sun room are brand-new, with TempurPedic mattresses for the best night's sleep you'll ever have! There's even a nursery with a crib and a twin bed for the little ones.
Open-concept kitchen/dining room/living room area on the main floor has access to a patio with gas grill and a large shared lawn space. Kitchen has granite countertops and brand-new appliances, with a flat-screen TV in an upper cabinet so you won't miss a minute of the game while you cook!
Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
My husband and I moved into our brand-new town house -- which we designed ourselves! -- in 2011: the same year we got married, found out we were pregnant, my husband got tenure, and I started a year-long internship towards completing my doctorate in clinical psychology. Life has slowed down...some...though we're adding a second addition to our family in January, 2014!
The house we're listing is our own home, and it's our pride and joy. Designing it was a labor of love (sometimes more labor than love...) It's still a work in progress in many ways, as we grow into it and make it suit our family's tastes, needs, and personalities. We love sharing it with friends and family, whether it be through parties on the roof deck, cook-outs on the lawn, or month-long visits from special guests.
The rental makes the house completely yours for Notre Dame football weekends. We hope you'll love it like we do!
