Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States
The House: This charming 1BR, 3/4 Bath (no tub) house was formerly the actual carriage house to our pre-1900 farmhouse and it has a lot of character and quirks, and a country feel, even right in town. The upstairs (hayloft) bedroom is partially divided (office/workout/studio/nursery?) and has en suite front-loading laundry. The Property: The carriage house is very private, but you should know that we are right next door and we're kind of a crowd. We have three boys and a dog, and we keep honeybees and chickens. Our old walnut trees are lovely, and keep the carriage house shady in the summer, but they are not great neighbors in the fall. **If these details do not sound charming to you, this is probably not your house!** Location: The carriage house is set back from the street on our slightly wild wooded lot, less than 1.5 miles from UMich campus. Miller Avenue has a bike lane and a regular city bus service. It is possible to live here without a car, 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). We will maintain the yard and public sidewalk. The Neighborhood: We are a stone's throw from Mack School, which has a public indoor swimming 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. Public schools schools are Bach, Forsythe or Slauson, and Skyline. Overall: This would make a lovely home for grad student/fellow/visiting single or couple or small/cozy family, or as an A2 base for a commuting faculty person. We both teach at UMich and we are happy to advise anyone new in town and/or the university.
