Springfield apartment description

A centrally-located corner building has terrific views on 3 sides. Take a virtual tour, copy this address into your url bar: http://bit.ly/12SEBuF. Close to everything Springfield has to offer and within strolling distance to all the cool activities and offerings of the popular C-Street Historic District, our bright and colorful loft sleeps up to 10 family members or friends. Perfect for mid-size groups or three couples, it has a large common kitchen/dining area, 3 bedrooms, 2 living areas and 1 1/2 baths. A skylight brightens the kitchen area and windows on 3 sides of this corner building fill it with light all year round. A keypad entrance accesses stairs to the loft from street level, a stairwell lit by the most amazing copper sculpture light fixture designed to fit the space. The kitchen/dining/party area is to the right at the top of the stairs with all the living/sleeping space to the left...an arrangement that accommodates both night owls who enjoy late-night visiting, card playing or dining and early risers who like to start their beauty sleep early.

There are two separate living areas, each with a Direct TV flat screen, a day bed and couch that makes into a bed. Three bedrooms with double beds round out the sleeping amenities. Lavatory facilities include a full bath with tub/shower and a half bath with laundry room which is in one of the bedrooms that has a murphy bed which can be folded into the wall during the day.

Our Firehouse Loft can be rented in conjunction with our Historic Firehouse just across the street, an amazing turn-of-the-century event venue where weddings occur every weekend from May through November. You'll be sure to see a bridal party or two when you choose our Firehouse Loft for your visit. It's actually one of the best forms of entertainment as you can see the beautiful and lush Courtyard Garden of our Historic Firehouse from your front windows.
As a matter of fact, if you'd like to schedule a picnic in our courtyard across the street, it can be arranged. Pizza House, our 53-year old local artisan pizzeria only delivers on historic C-Street!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1980

                  About the owner: I purchased this building and moved my Graphic Design and Photography business downstairs in 1980. I renovated the second floor, where the loft is today in 1985 and moved my business upstairs and moved myself into what is today the kitchen/dining area. When Paul and I got married in 1990, I moved my studio across the street into the Historic Firehouse and began renting out the loft on an annual basis. Just this year, we decided to rework it, furnish it and provide it to all the wedding parties that bring in so many folks from out of town. It has become increasingly popular for weekend rentals for the brides of Historic Firehouse #2.

                  Why the Owner Chose Springfield:
                  I have always been interested in historic restoration. Our business name is Collette Parker Restoration; Paul & I own several historic properties in the Commercial Street Historic District which we continue to work on. As anyone who owns one of these knows, they're never really done but always 'a work in progress!' We are also avid recyclers and there is no form of recycling like restoring one of these fabulous buildings and adding another 150 years to its lifespan. Also, the people in this neighborhood are just as committed as Paul and I to building something beautiful in our wonderful little neighborhood!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Location, location, location! My corner location at Boonville & Commercial Streets is close to everything Historic Downtown Springfield has to offer. You can see Assemblies of God Headquarters and Cox North Hospital from the back windows and Drury University is about 5 blocks away. City and County offices and courthouse are just down Boonville a few more blocks and a few more get you to Park Central Square! And for sheer livability, I think the light from windows on 3 sides and bright, fun colors make this loft so special. When I lived up here years ago, I would often just watch the sun set by erasing individual blind slats that were shadows on the wall. The color changes in the loft as the seasons change. Also, this area is just so unique and so walkable. There are so many special people and places within just a couple of blocks...you'll have to see for yourself!
