1870’s Victorian House. If you're looking for unique, authentic, charming, spacious—you’ve found your location in Lawrence!

Quiet residential neighborhood, centrally located mere blocks from KU and historic downtown. Near parks.

This booking includes use of bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, and tiled shower. The back door steps out into a wonderful back yard with lush, green, relaxing spaces.

Great for a private getaway, a relaxing space for sightseeing, or a work week.

The space
Guests have have exclusive use of the first floor. The bedroom has a large, cedar-lined walk-in closet, solid wood highboy chest, and bed-side tables flanking a king-sized bed. Lamps include outlets on the top so there is no searching for plug-ins.

In addition to a table and chairs the dining room sports a nice work desk with comfortable chair and a bay window seat for napping or reading.

The living room features a sofa with 2 recliners and an additional sofa for extra room. A baby grand piano sits in the bay window.

The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes, flatware, and cutlery. It includes a microwave and a counter-top convection toaster oven.

The bathroom has large, tiled 2-headed shower.

Guests may also use the back patio adjacent to a water feature and the front porch with a swing. The yard is a lush haven in the summertime with over 70 different blooming plants throughout the season in a shady wooded setting. Don’t expect a manicured yard space—this interior yard does not have a single blade of grass and has not seen a yard chemical in 35+ years. Furthermore those leaves are important just where they fall. If you’re looking for a place where you might hear the worms eating leaves at dusk in the spring, this is it!

Please note that there is an upstairs space separate from this part of the house, but upstairs guests do not have access to your space and you do not have access to theirs.

Where you’ll be

Lawrence, Kansas, United States

Located in a quiet neighborhood just one block off Massachusetts (the main street of Lawrence), this secluded double lot is a treasure. Mere blocks from KU's Kansas Union or unique downtown shopping, restaurants and night life, its central location is a great asset.
