Lovely 2 BD/1BA Furnished Home in Historic Duckpond Neighborhood Downtown Available for Short or Long Term Stay

This beautiful furnished first story home overlooks the gardens of the Thomas Center, in the peaceful, historic Duckpond neighborhood just a 5-10 minute walk from downtown Gainesville. A large porch provides the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, while the light, airy living area offers a pleasant, air-conditioned space. Two generously sized bedrooms are accompanied by a spacious hallway bathroom and large living & dining areas with a chef's kitchen. There is wifi throughout, so work can be done from a desk, couch, or on the porch.

The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, surrounded by huge live oaks and the oldest and most distinguished homes in town. In fact, the home just south of ours was built by UF's first president and he was rumored to have given speeches from the second floor balcony that overlooks Roper Park. Though our neighborhood is very quiet with no traffic noise or loud neighbors, just two blocks west is Main Street and five blocks south is University Avenue and the heart of downtown Gainesville. It's incredibly easy to walk (5 minutes) or bike (2 minutes) downtown. UF campus is a 4-7 minute drive away (depending on if you get red lights or green) or a quick 10-15 minute bike ride (whether your pace is quick or leisurely). And, as mentioned above, it's a quick 6-10 minute drive to/from the Gainesville Airport.

There is a high efficiency central heat & air system as well as a full size washer & dryer on site. We ask that folks please not smoke anywhere inside or outside on the property. No pets, please.

Prefer 1-2 responsible faculty/staff, postdoc(s), resident(s), visiting scholar(s), graduate/business/law/medical/vet student(s). Available immediately, short or long term. Rent negotiable depending on length of stay— includes utilities & internet (there is also an electric car charting station on site, if needed). Email for more information and pictures.
