Lawrence farmhouse description

This recently remodeled 2-bedroom, 900 sq.ft. apartment is part of a classic, 100 year old farmhouse on a 20 acre property near Clinton Lake. The lower level apartment features a private entrance, private deck, handmade oak furniture, kitchenette, full bath, and (for your privacy), soundproof walls and ceiling. If you so choose, outdoor adventure is right around the corner. The property has a one-mile, walking path available for your use and is a short bike to the Clinton Lake wildlife area. In fact, our road dead-ends at a free boat-ramp and fishing location. Two kayaks are available and complementary. The new Rock Chalk Park will be up and running this summer with year-round events. The city of Lawrence is only 3-miles east. We have lived in Lawrence for 25 years and are willing to provide any info that would make your stay perfect. Feel free to book a night, weekend, or week's stay, with nearby activities for anyone, ages five to eighty-five! Or come just to enjoy the peace and quiet.

              Bloomington Beach State Park, Clinton Lake

              The property is located on rural land, within walking distance to Clinton lake. Whereas Lawrence has shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and everything you would expect from a college town, the lake provides great boating, fishing, windsurfing, kite boarding, beaches, hiking, and general outdoor fun...right in your back yard.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 8

              About the owner: Pattie and John have lived at Rancho Verde for 8 years, and in Lawrence for 25. In their spare time they refurbish old homes. Along with the 'sister house' you will be staying in (described below) there is a second house on the property. This one was the childhood home of New York Yankees great, Ralph Hauk, who managed and played on the team during the hay day of the Yankees storied career.

              Why the Owner Chose Lawrence:
              This home is one of two remaining 'sister houses' built roughly 100 years ago, individually, by the father of five girls. He built one for each girl! We know this because after moving and re-furbishing the house, the woman who owned it prior to us drove by to tell us how it all happened! ...that's right, she drove. And had no problem hustling up our stairs! Ralph Hauk's home (also on the property) was built with rocks in-between the two by fours. This was to protect them from Quantrill's raiders, at a time when Jayhawks carried rifles! After all, they lived down the road from the only African American community, in a town founded on 'northerner' values, by people willing to die for them. And die they did, inciting the beginning of the Civil War.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              You will be staying in a house that is part of the storied Lawrence History, in-between the town of Lawrence, KU, and Clinton Lake. Kayaks, bikes, hikes, and sailboat rental are all at your fingertips; but you are also 10 minutes from a nightlife and restaurant scene that are often written up in travel magazines.
