I have a lovely home in the Sloan Lake area close to the football stadium and less than two miles from downtown and the baseball field. Newish home, built in 1996. Completely remodeled in March 2017. It is a 4 bedroom shared house with us and is 2500 square feet. Close to lots of bars, breweries, grocery stores, restaurants and more!
Uber or Lyft is very affordable to get downtown and other destinations. I have two bikes available for use. Buses are nearby.
