Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: We added this upstairs retreat for friends and family more than 10 years ago and now we hope to share it with you. We live in the house behind the retreat so we are close if you need us but will honor your privacy. We have lived on this property since 1990 and in Ann Arbor for over 35 years. Ken teaches entrepreneurship part-time at the University of Michigan. Ken enjoys restoring woodworking machines in his workshop below the studio. Margaret works in communications for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and is a University of Michigan alumni. She loves gardening and putters in her perennial beds around the yard whenever possible.

Why the Owner Chose Allmendinger Heights, Ann Arbor, MI, USA:
People from all over the world have enjoyed this special space; most people who visit plan to return. For some it’s the proximity to the university, others like the quiet and beauty of the yard. Everyone loves the location! We are easy to find, just 3 turns and 2.5 miles from the I-94 Ann Arbor Saline Rd. exit. We are close to downtown Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan and anything you might need. You can’t get much closer to the athletic campus. We are a ten minute walk to Michigan Stadium. You can easily walk to most of the athletic campus venues in twenty minutes or less. This is an amazing place for a short term lease--- hard to find in Ann Arbor. Perfect for short term stays for hospital staff, or a visiting scholar. It's less expensive than a hotel, easy access, closer to the action. Stay in a quiet neighborhood where you can relax, cook a meal, hang out and do a load of laundry.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The studio space feels large. The open floor plan, with its high with vaulted ceiling, skylights, and windows, provide plenty of natural light. The upstairs deck adds an outdoor room. The building is made of structurally insulated panels; the thick walls hold in the temperature you want and keep out the noise. To achieve your perfect temperature, we have a wall-mounted mini split air conditioner as well as in-floor heating. If you are accustomed to the temperature oscillations that come with forced air heating, you are in for a treat. . In the warm weather you can enjoy the beautiful garden views and sitting out on your own beautiful deck complete with bistro table & chairs, and an outdoor outlet.
