Guests have have exclusive use of most of the first floor. The bedroom has a large, cedar-lined closet, solid wood highboy chest, bed-side tableS, and king-sized bed.

The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes, flatware, and cutlery. 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 apartment 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.

The City of Lawrence requires that I have no more than 3 unrelated guests due to zoning. Families of 4 are welcome, 4 friends are not able to stay in this listing due to zoning restrictions. Thank you for understanding.
