Top unit of a three-family house, this newly renovated two bedroom, one bath apartment is in the heart of downtown Winston-Salem. It is an ideal location two blocks away from all of the action of Fourth and Trade Streets, tucked into a funky, tree-lined neighborhood that is pleasantly quiet and private.
Walkable to all that downtown has to offer, including the BB&T Ball Park, the Hanes Theater, Hanes Park, millennium Center, Benton Convention Center, Washington Park, the Stevens Center, the Children's Museum, Bailey Park, the Innovation Quarter, Old Salem, Aperture Theater, Sawtooth, YMCA, Washington Perk Market and all of the restaurants, cafes, bars, breweries, coffee shops and art studios that downtown has to offer.
Bike trails, walking trails, the Strollway and dog parks surround the apartment.
The apartment is centrally located, immediately on a bus stop and blocks away from Business I-40 and Rt. 421. Wake Forest University and Hospital, Forsyth Hospital, Winston Salem State University, Southeastern Center for Contemporary Arts, NC School of the Arts, Whole Foods, Publix, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, Hanes Mall, Old Salem Lake, Rock Quarry Park, are within a ten minute drive or less.
Pilot Mountain and Hanging Rock are excellent for hiking and within a thirty minute drive. Fifteen minutes from here is the oldest medicinal herbal garden in the United States. It's located in Bethabara, which, along with Old Bethania are great spots of history.
Greensboro, NC is about 30 minutes away and High Point, NC is 20 minutes away (that's where the Furniture Market is). Piedmont Triad International Airport (PTI/GSO) is 17-20 minutes away.
The space itself is clean, bright and airy. The kitchen may be the crown jewel of the apartment, with half of it encased in glass, allowing for lots of light and pretty views as you enjoy your morning coffee or evening wine. It has white quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher and garbage disposal) and a reclaimed granite backsplash. We've got it stocked with coffee, tea, a bit of breakfast and your kitchen essentials. Hardwood floors are throughout the apartment, minus the bathroom, which is tiled.
The bathroom was remodeled last year and the tub, shower, vanity and all hardware are squeaky clean. There are bathroom basics stocked: hair dryer, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, disposable razors, toothpaste etc.
There are two bedrooms, each with a king sized bed, small drawers, a desk and a place to sit. Both bedrooms have closets with luggage racks and hangers. One of the bedrooms has a small laundry closet with a stackable washer/dryer unit.
The living room has a pull-out sofa that can sleep two. In addition, we have a small TV. We do not have cable, but we have very fast Internet. In the closet, there is a futon that can be pulled out to sleep one: a small adult or child.
The apartment has two decks - a somewhat spacious one great for lounging and eating outside when the weather is nice, and a small back one for gazing at the pines or watching the fireflies.
The apartment features filtered water throughout - we have a whole house water filtration system. As mentioned above, there is free, fast Internet. There is no smoking in the apartment, but we do have a compost bin and recycle if you like those things.
The property is surrounded by plants and trees - and depending on time of year, vegetables, figs, blueberries, passion vines and kiwis - lending a feel of privacy or that you are living in a tree house, despite having downtown W-S in the view from your window, a minute or two walk away.
Winston-Salem is enjoying the surge of the local food movement, with many independent restaurants supporting local farmers and the farmer's market. Krankie's Wherehouse, Muddy Creek, Mary's Gourmet Diner, Black Mountain Chocolate and Twin City Hive are some locavore gems to explore.
We invite all travelers, explorers, students, teachers, wanderers, artists, folks going to conferences or interviews and everyone else to stay with us.
