Central Blue Door....newly Renovated Historic Midtown Cottage

Memphis cottage in Midtown, near Memphis Zoo
I am a local contractor and designer who has taken this 1920's cottage and taken it down to the studs to bring it back to 2017 standards for comfort and style. I have removed walls and vaulted ceilings making this a very light filled space with a open floor plan. The kitchen/great room is approximately 500 ft.² which provides breakfast bar, dining table for four and comfortable seating for five. 55" TV provided in den and 40" TV in the bedroom.

The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, freezer, microwave vent hood, and electric stove/oven. Enjoy complimentary snack basket and Keurig coffee maker. Island provides for 2 bar stools. Cupboard is full of glasses, mugs, cookware, silverware and a multitude of pots and pans to make cooking easy and convenient during your stay.

The bedroom includes a queen size bed, fine linens, down comforter, and three large closets. Large bath with tub/shower, 4 foot vanity and even a heated towel rack. Shampoo,Conditioner and Body Wash provided in shower dispenser.
