About the Property

Historic Home, 6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

John W. Maynard constructed this center-entry side gabled brick house in 1840. At the time the home was in the middle of a large, undeveloped block. Catherine Street did not extend between Division and State Streets until 1898. Maynard was a successful grocer with a store on Ann Street and his brother, William, was the city's most successful land developers during his time and the Mayor of Ann Arbor in the mid 1800s. Maynard street in Ann Arbor still bears their family's name as they were some of the early settlers of Ann Arbor. John and William Maynard were also responsible for donating land they personally owned in order for Ann Arbor to win the bid as the future location of the University of Michigan.

In the 176 year life of this home it has served as student centers, a church, and the home to many of Ann Arbor's finest residents.

Today the exterior of the home still has the most charm of any home in Ann Arbor but in 2006 it was meticulously restored and no expense was spared. The home has a viking range, sub zero fridge, wine bar, huge wrap around porch, patio, kohler fixtures, surround sound throughout the house, and much more. Probably the best feature of the home is that it is absolutely in the heart of Ann Arbor and within walking distance to anything and everything.

The house has recently served as a temporary residence for Neve Campbell, Hillary Swank, and other celebrities which should also indicate that it's one of the best in Ann Arbor.

The set up for the beds in the home is 2 bedrooms with king sized beds, 2 bedrooms with queens, 1 bedroom with a full, a full sized pull out couch, and 2 twin beds in a newly remodeled attic. There is also plenty of floor space for air mattresses if need be.

Although the home is already beautiful we have projects and refining done throughout the year to make it better and better. Without a doubt this is the best home to rent in the Ann Arbor area.
