About this listing
A large brick home in a historic area of Detroit near canals and river side parks. Your private room in this shared living space allows you the opportunity to really make yourself at home.
Hello! Welcome to Jefferson Chalmers! I have done much traveling, and I know the importance of having a friendly, clean, and safe refuge when traveling in unknown territory. Jefferson Chalmers is the neighborhood that I grew up in, and I have been working on homes here to preserve the community. This home is one of them. It is very large, and had been converted to an open floor plan, so it is perfect for hosting many people. There are four bedrooms, with Jessica living in one full time. The others have room mates and occasional travelers, all interesting and friendly people. There are 2 full baths, one with a tub, and one with a shower. A full and open kitchen is available for cooking and storing food. This house was built in the 20s, but has had some major renovation done to the interior. Given the increasing interest in Jefferson Chalmers, and given my need to fund my preservation projects in the community, I decided to make this space available to travelers looking for a quality, laid back living space, for a reasonable price. This provides a place for you, brings awareness to the Jefferson Chalmers neighborhood, and funds improvements to the Marlborough block!
The house is fully furnished, and you can make yourself at home here. There is speedy wifi, a lot of space for working or relaxing in communal areas, and a washer and dryer. The neighborhood is filled with beautiful old homes, and a number of parks along the river. Their are also canals that run through the neighborhood, and a couple of small single block islands with homes on them! Jefferson Chalmers is working to bring back its shopping district, but there are grocers and restaurants nearby. We can help you find anything you may be looking for. The Grosse Pointes are also situated on the edge of the neighborhood, providing upscale options for shopping if needed.
There is plenty of street parking in front of the house. But for public transit, the house is a block and a half from the 25 Jefferson bus line which runs frequently and will take you downtown. There are also the 9 Chalmers and the 13 Connor routes nearby.
Jessica, a long term tenant here, is becoming a veterinarian, practices yoga, volunteers at a local artist collective, and is very involved in the artist community in Detroit. She is also the mother of two happy and friendly dogs and two very laid back cats. Shanna (my Mom), who lives nearby, helps to take care of everything here and will meet you to help you check in.
