Warning: Apartments one and two have huge and fantastic balconies. Fall Creek is mostly populated by families, retired people, quiet professionals, and graduate students. Our neighbors, who are often good friends with our tenants, will call the police if our tenants violate noise ordinances. If you are the type of tenants who like to party outside, or inside with open windows spilling loud music out onto the neighbors, please choose one of the other neighborhoods that is well suited for that lifestyle.

Apartment B - Luxury Two-Suite Apartment in Quiet, Historic Carriage House!

What this isn't: This apartment is not for more than 2 unrelated parties, because the bedrooms are in pairs. You have to walk through a first bedroom to get to a smaller second bedroom. The smaller bedrooms were the only bedrooms when this was a two bedroom walk up apartment over a carriage house.

What this is: Now a living area and a kitchen have been converted to bedrooms, turning those little bedrooms into suites. The suites are divided by a family room with some large closets and a full bath. The first floor has been completely built out to have a restaurant-style kitchen, with a giant, open floor plan. A long skinny office is also on the first floor, plus a half bath.

If you like to cook, but don't want to mow a lawn, this place is for you! Our property has no grass, just a paved courtyard between the house and carriage house. There are bike racks for all, and a shared washer dryer in the basement. These are the high-capacity luxury machines, and they are free for our residents. We even provide the soap! We pay all other utilities too, including high-speed internet.

As you can see from the pictures, this apartment is heaven for those who like hardwood and porcelain tile. The entryway is crowned by massive posts and beams, leading into a giant great room that is tiled wall-to-wall with elegant porcelain. Note the massive two-bay stainless steel commercial sink with sideboards and overhead pot sprayer, dual large fridges, and high end stove and dishwasher. Restored wide plank pine provides much of the second story flooring. There are barn-style Z doors recovered from a restaurant for one of the suites.

This apartment rents for $2060 per month including all utilities. This apartment is ideal for serious academics with small families, couples, or room-mates who are very serious about their work.
