Welcome to my 100 yr old home in historic Russian Hill! A safe, up & coming neighborhood, centrally located in the KC Metro, close to everything with great hwy access.

The space
My 100yr old home is fully furnished with a queen bed in each room.
I travel extensively for work, and when my house is booked I stay at my Sister's, so you probably wont see me during your stay.
The 3rd floor bedrooms are connected by a doorway with a heavy curtain.

My house is furnished with unique items I find interesting & beautiful, adding charm to the tough (& maybe a little rough around the edges) old girl. You have access to the entire house. (Please don't touch anything in the glassware hutch).

Things to note:
1) The house is undergoing some remodeling. I am happy to announce that in 2018, the following $20k in renovations was completed: refinishing the hardwood floors throughout the house, new kitchen appliances have been installed (fridge, dishwasher, gas range, microwave), new light fixtures in kitchen and all bedrooms, ceiling tile in the kitchen, and awesome new hand hammered copper kitchen sink and granite countertops, as well as a new sectional couch and new bedding! Still more to do, but the big stuff is done!!
2) Some of the interior doors need replacing, BUT the doors that are old and crappy still close and lock.
3) Kitchen and entry have been repainted and cabinets updated.
4) Renovations are a slow process, so currently you will be receiving a reduced price for some rough wall edges, unfinished drywall along a the living room/kitchen ceiling divider, and pre-tile work in areas where the hardwood was not able to be refinished. Work will not be done while guests are in the house, and aside from the unfinished aesthetics of a few spots, the things yet to be completed should not affect your stay! :)

Guest access
Please enjoy my home,
Off limit areas: glassware in hutch, basement, and one bedroom closet, which is marked.

Other things to note
Park on the right hand side of the driveway, and the street directly in front of my house.
I share the driveway with my neighbors, so please don't block the left half of the driveway or park in front of their house. :)
