Property description

This unique small house house, built in 1890, is a converted storefront. The kitchen is a 50's vintage Geneva kitchen. It is well equipped for stays of several days to a month: coffee maker, microwave, 50's GE electric stove, dishwasher, garbage disposal, TV, internet. The open kitchen looks out on the living and dining areas. The skylight in the living area allows for a lot of natural light. There is a washer and dryer combo for those who would like to stay more than a few days. The back deck allows you to enjoy the outside in complete privacy.

The house is located on a residential street, one block east of Cooper. Cooper Street, between Madison and Young, has some of the best restaurants in Memphis from fine dining/award winning Restaurant Iris to the southern cooking meat and three Barksdale Restaurant--plus many others in nearby Overton Square to the north and Cooper-Young to the south.

Several of the top music venues are located in Midtown Memphis: Layfayette’s Music Hall, Minglewood, Levitt Shell, Hi-Tone Café, and Otherlands (on weekends). Museums: Children's Museum, Pink Palace, Brooks Art Museum. The Memphis Zoo is close. We are close to the antique district, Urban Outfitters and not too far from the Broad Avenue Arts District. Graceland is about 8 miles (20 minutes) away. Beale Street and Downtown are 4½ miles away, but easy to get to.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Glenn Hays coached track for 36 years at the University of Memphis. He and his wife also ran La Tourelle Restaurant for 30 years before selling it to Kelly English who opened Restaurant Iris. They still own Cafe 1912 which has been a neighborhood restaurant for 14 years. Glenn and Martha have lived in the neighborhood for 43 years. Their daughter, Vanessa, lives just around the corner.

Why the Owner Chose Midtown, Memphis, TN, USA:
We have been renting the house on a long term basis. However, when it last came available, we decided to do something different. We have done some private meals here and decided it would be perfect for people who wanted a unique place similar to home to stay for a weekend or a month.
