This 2 story, 3 bedroom house has been recently repainted, with new carpeting throughout, as well as other improvements. On the first floor is a living and dining 'great room', a kitchen with a new gas stove and large refrigerator (plus a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc.) and a pantry. On the second floor are 3 bedrooms and a large full bath with bathtub and shower. All three bedrooms have full size (double) beds; linens and pillows are provided. There are a washer and dryer in the basement, should you need to do laundry. (They are shared with 2 neighboring tenants of mine- see the note under 'Guest Access' about this.) The house was built in 1909 and occupied by the same family for over 100 years. Remodeled and 'modernized' in the 1950's, it has a kitschy retro style. It's situated on a quarter-acre urban oasis of green, with a 100 year old oak tree shading the house and beautiful tree, shrubs and flowers on the site.
INFORMATION ABOUT TRANSPORTATION & DISTANCES TO VARIOUS LOCATIONS
We can potentially provide you a bicycle at a nominal charge, weather and availability permitting. The house is on a major bus line which goes to the University of Rochester, Strong Memorial Hospital, and near Highland Hospital and a Tops Supermarket in one direction, and to downtown Rochester, its Convention Center, the Eastman School of Music (ESM), Memorial Art Gallery (MAG), Visual Studies Workshop (VSW), and Wegmans and PriceRite Supermarkets. The house is 0.75 miles / 1 kilometer from a walking/biking bridge to the University of Rochester's (UR) River Campus, and about 1.5 miles / 2 kilometers from Strong Memorial Hospital (SMH). By bus or car it's a 2 mile / 1.5 kilometer ride to the heart of the UR campus and to Strong Memorial Hospital. The house has a driveway where your car can be brought off the street, and there is free on-street parking available opposite the house at all times, with no need to move the car to the other side of the street (as one must in many Rochester neighborhoods). We may be able to provide you a ride from the airport, train or bus station- please ask us if this would be helpful to you. We can sometimes help with transportation to stores and other locations, as well.
