Gainesville Florida - Downtown Living

Situated in the heart of the historic downtown known as the DuckPond, our house is close to parks and restaurants, downtown happenings - including a wonderful Farmers Market - and art galleries. There is a thriving micro brewery just 8 minutes walk away on the site of the natural spring which had provided the water for the train when it passed through Gainesville until the early 20th century. The train track has been converted into a bike way leading out onto the surrounding Payne's Praire - a scenic wonder. Our house is also within bike riding distance of the main University Campus which is about 2 miles away. The Duck Pond is home to many academics who value its sense of community, its unique old homes and its very safe footpaths. Originally built in the 1880s, our house has undergone many makeovers. It has a glassed in studio/sun room used also as a large office, and a third bedroom which also doubles as an office with fold out futon. The kitchen, although small by American standards, functions well for committed cooking and opens onto a dedicated dining room. It features a Gaggia espresso machine as well as a large stove. There are 2 small but very serviceable bathrooms. The ambience is superb - open and friendly neighbors are waiting to help.

About Me
I have been on the Physics faculty at the University of Florida for almost thirty years, with a focus on gravitational waves and the physics of black hole environments. I have also taught briefly at the University of Cambridge in the UK, and Utrecht University in the Netherlands. I have held visiting academic posts in Australia, France and Germany, and am a frequent visitor to the Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris, and the Albert Einstein Institute outside Berlin.
