About this listing
This is a comfortable 2 bedroom apartment in a unique complex close to the universities, Innovation Park, and the State Capitol.
Comfortable 2 Bedroom apartment with a small but mighty kitchen; near FSU, FAMU, Railroad Square, All Saints and the MagLab. It's a tree covered oasis away from, but within walking/biking distance to the Gaines Street/All Saints neighborhood.
The paved Saint Marks Bike/Walking Trail starts here and goes about 20 miles the Gulf Coast town of St. Marks. The Southern Tier Transcontinental Bike Route (San Diego to St. Augustine) is two blocks away. Lake Elberta Park adjoins the community with a paved walking trail around the lake.
The FSU stadium is an easy walk. There is a city bus line on Gaines Street and another on Lake Bradford that go further afield.
While the neighborhood is relaxed and natural, and on a very quiet street, it is in the middle of the city and comes with its' share of noise from the stadium, clubs, a busy street and a railroad track, all a few blocks away as a no-cost extra.
Guests have access to the entire apartment except for one closet. On nice nights, the screen porch is a great place to hang out. There is a shared laundry in the complex.
There is very limited parking in the complex. A maximum of one vehicle per apartment is allowed.
We will check you in, show you where things are, and give you some local information. We're available by phone if you have questions, need local advice, or help with anything in the apartment.
I love being in the middle of the city, close to everything, while having the feeling of being out in the country.
There is a city bus stop three blocks away. The Saint Marks Bike Trail, a paved off-street path, starts a block away and goes 20 miles to the coastal town of St. Marks. FSU and FAMU are within easy walking or biking distance
Coin laundry on site.
