This Edwardian Old Memphis home is wonderfully unique and sleeps 8 (plus). Built at the turn of the century by a Cotton family it is most beautiful and commodious. 4 beautifully furnished bedrooms, lovely grounds. 2-1/2 baths, chefs kitchen, secure parking. Hosts to reside on 3rd floor and will share common areas unless more space is needed; please discuss with host prior to booking. Approximately 3400sqft THE SPACE This rather large historic home really is charming and fun. Dutch Colonial, Gothic, Mediterranean, and Craftsman styles all meld into a chic but very comfortable manse with room for up to 12. Every window peers into beauty; one often feels far away from a city. The 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the second floor are awesome. 3 queen beds 1 king. (Third floor has a separate 3room suite with full bath which is used as host quarters unless it is booked along with the home. ) With an acre of park like grounds only poor weather might keep one indoors- patios and porches are delightful as is the fire pit. GUEST ACCESS There are many spots to enjoy here- inside and out. Please use the kitchen to prepare meals and the tableware to enjoy dining !this is the best walking riding running area in Memphis and the acre of garden is lovely when green. The front porch and terrace are terrific; one could sit on the porch swing all day! It's lovely here! INTERACTION WITH GUESTS Your quarters are 100% private. Host will have coffee, tea, light breakfast ready early. Host reserves the top floor private apartment unless arranged otherwise; common areas are shared by host and guests. The host is 100% quiet, unobtrusive and rarely at home during the day. Many guests want interaction and we have a good time. Many others want little or no interaction and this is readily provided :) THE NEIGHBORHOOD The Old Garden District in Memphis is beautiful 365 days a year. We are on the edge of the historic Central Garden area which is not only famous for history and architecture but is a class 3 arboretum as well. Walk, run, bike or skate through a square mile of safe, beautiful, history. Very near to Overton Square and Cooper-Young areas which are filled with bars, restaurants, outdoor patios, live music. 10 min from Graceland and downtown / Mississippi river / convention center / Grizzlies stadium / Beale street. You won't find a safer, more enjoyable, more convenient space :) you'll love it here - it's beautiful :) GETTING AROUND We are 10 min, or less, from any Memphis attraction by car.
