Newly restored cozy one-bdrm 2nd fl apartment in 175-year-old home 2 blocks from Amherst Cinema & steps to everything this vibrant downtown has to offer. Walking distance to Amherst College and UMass. This home retains the character of days gone by, yet sparkles with new wood floors and new bathroom/kitchen fixtures and appliances. Original wood-paneled entry hallway and exposed beams throughout. Antique furnishings and historic wall decor. Sunny galley kitchen with built-in reclaimed wood bar.

The space
The sun-drenched bedroon has a sitting area with two chairs, a reading corner with an antique rocking chair, and a double bed with a high quality mattress and fine all-cotton bedding. The combination living/dining room has a 43" TV, an antique dining table that opens to seat four, and a pull-out queen sleeper sofa. While extremely comfy as a sofa for sitting, or for one person to sleep on unopened, the sofa as a pull-out bed is not as comfortable as a real bed; therefore this apartment is best suited for a couple, or a couple plus a single person or child. The recently-renovated compact bathroom boasts a sparlking new shower, coral colored walls, wood ceiling and cabinetry, and hand-crafted mirror. The newly updated galley kitchen has a with built-in bar crafted with reclaimed wood, and is elegantly equipped with hand made pottery plates, a new set of flatware, and every utensil you might need.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to use the backyard, shared with the downstairs Airbnb guests.
