The Space

This cottage style apartment is high-ceilinged, airy and very intelligently laid out!

It's conveniently located close to Downtown, UT and the 6th & Lamar shopping area (Whole Foods, BookPeople, Anthropology, Waterloo, 24 Diner, Counter Cafe, Swedish Hill). It is in a quaint pocket of West Campus and is an exceptionally quiet and safe neighborhood. The AC is kickin', the WiFi is fast and overall it is an extremely comfortable apartment and close to everything!

The cottage features a full kitchen (fridge, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, along with full servicewear and cookware).

The living space has a flat screen TV (sorry no channels but there's a dvd player), and fast WiFi. There a comfy IKEA convertible sofa in the living area which folds out to be queen-sized with linens, pillows and blankets below. The lofted bedroom has a double-sized bed and room for storage. Downstairs there are full length mirrors and room in the closet if you need to hang clothing. The bathroom is full with a tub & shower.

There is a washer & dryer located in the closet by the kitchen. The front patio is a good place for morning coffee, a breath of fresh air, or picking herbs from the window box.

There is one assigned parking spot out front as well as guest parking spots for extra cars.

Many places are walkable from here, but there are also close-by bus routes: #1 will take you downtown (5 mins) and to SoCo (10-15 mins) going south, or up to the 29th & Guadalupe area--Buffalo Exchange, Spiderhouse, Wheatsville, I LUV video, etc (5 mins). The #5 and #338 are also close by.

For reference, this property is located one block east and north of Lamar and MLK.

Please contact me if you have any questions!
