Charming Carriage House in Upper Water Hill

This charming little 1BR, 3/4 Bath (no tub) house was formerly an actual carriage house (our farmhouse was built in 1900). It has been renovated this year and has new floors and kitchen cabinets and thermal windows and a completely new bathroom, but it still has old-house character (and quirks). The upstairs bedroom is partially divided (office/workout/studio/baby room?) and has en suite front-loading laundry. There is a futon downstairs for a guest. The house is semi-furnished and supplied with dishes and cookware, but we can store those if you come with your own.

Location: This house is set back from the street on our slightly wild wooded lot, less than 1.5 miles from UMich campus. We are a stone's throw from Mack School, which has a public indoor pool and a tennis court. We are a few blocks from the Ann Arbor YMCA. Bird Hill Nature Area, Kerrytown Farmers' Market, and great Main Street restaurants are all within 1 mile. Districted schools are Bach, Forsythe, and Skyline. Miller Avenue has a bike lane and a regular city bus. No car is needed to live here, even though we aren't right downtown, but we can accommodate one car in our shared driveway (but would appreciate if the tenant pitches in when snow-shoveling season comes if there is a car).

Utilities (including basic cable and wi-fi) are included for weekly rental, but not for long-term. We will maintain the yard and sidewalk.

This would make a lovely home for a grad student/resident/visiting single or couple. We both teach at UMich and are happy to advise if you're new in town.

You should know that we have young children and a dog, as do several neighbors, and we are in earshot of the elementary school.

This house may be available beyond one year to great tenants.

About Me
We--a writer and a political scientist--have taught at various colleges and universities in U.S. and elsewhere (Ecuador, Mexico, Canada) and have at last settled down in Ann Arbor. Over the course of our own itinerant careers, we have rented wonderful homes via Sabbatical Homes. Now that we have a home of our own, we are listing our carriage house for grad students or visiting faculty or fellows coming to U Michigan.
