Welcome to Brookforest Acres, a tranquil retreat minutes from downtown!

Our home sits on 6 acres about 1.5 miles from the interstate. Your apartment is located on the ground floor of the house and is 1400 square feet. The apartment is a part of our family home but your interior space is not shared. You have a separate entrance with parking directly in front of your door.

The space
There is a covered patio leading up to your door. Keyless entry leads you into your open living area with a 70-inch LCD smart television with an Amazon Fire Stick, couch, coffee table, and a stocked coffee bar with both regular and decaf. As you walk further into your living space, you have a dining table with seating for four as well as a desk with a monitor and cables to connect a PC, a comfortable office chair, and complimentary Wi-Fi. As you turn the corner, you will enter the kitchenette with a full-size stainless-steel GE stove and microwave, full-size side-by-side stainless steel KitchenAid refrigerator, sink, island, and a full set of pots and pans to prepare any meal you like. You have a full-size front-loading Whirlpool washer and dryer for your use. The first bedroom has a queen bed and an LCD wall-mounted TV with an Amazon Firestick, dresser, and closet. The second bedroom has two twin beds and toys for your little ones. Your full bath has a curved shower rod for extra space with a shower/bath combination.
