Property description

This is a spacious, 2100 sq ft, classic 'PRAIRIE STYLE' home. This turn-of-the-century home offers five bedrooms and two full baths, a fully furnished kitchen, separate dining room, and large living room. There are four good-size bedrooms upstairs, and one large bedroom on the main floor with private entrance. There is also a full bathroom on each floor. The back yard is close to an acre with a fabulous deck and garden. This home will accommodate 8 to 10 guests at a rate of $500/night.

Our home is 5 miles from downtown or the Qwest Center and Ameritrade Park - about 10-15 minutes drive time. It is only 5 minutes from the College World Series shuttle at the Westroads. We are centrally located with easy access to shopping and great restaurants.

In addition there is high speed wireless internet, Direct TV, LED TV in living room, all linens, washer/dryer, and much more. There is ample off street parking, and the neighborhood is very safe. We do not allow pets or smoking.

This 100+ year old home has been remarkably well-preserved in addition to having all modern conveniences. There are original oak and Tigers Eye Maple wood floors, 9 ft ceilings with original plaster cove, and numerous antique pieces. Our home has been well cared for and we want renters who will do the same.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are life-long residents of Omaha, and love the city and its people. We are both educators and never tire of exploring the great outdoors.

Why the Owner Chose Benson Gardens, Omaha, NE, USA:
This is such a beautiful historic home, and has great access to all activities in the city.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home feels like you are going back one hundred year; which you are. It is one hundred and three years old this year. We just found out that our catalpa tree is the state record holder! During our modernizing we have been very careful not to destroy the homes original character. It is a home that truly captures a bygone era.
