In 2009 we bought our home in the Evergreen Historic district of Midtown Memphis and took on the challenge of renovating a nearly 100 yr old home that had been much neglected and was in great need of some tender love and care. We were warned by our neighbors before entering the house for the first time to look beyond the water leaks and the debris and see the beauty that was hidden beneath its poor condition. As we stepped inside it was as if we had stepped back in time 100 years. The wonderfully preserved woodwork, beamed ceilings, wood floors, and unique tile patterns on the porches and bathrooms were stunning. During the 7 month renovation process we were very careful to preserve the character and history found there. The highlight of our year is hosting an annual Christmas Open House for our neighbors and friends by adorning our home with 12 Christmas trees and counting.... Traveling is a passion we both share. We take advantage of any opportunity we can to see the world. When we travel we seek out botanical gardens and enjoy sampling local foods and hearing music that is unique to the city we are visiting. We recently returned from Machu Picchu/ Peru. What a beautiful country and beautiful people. There is so much to learn about the cultures that formed our beautiful world. We appreciate museums and beautiful architecture and the history that is hidden there. We enjoy meeting people and making friends. Airbnb has opened so many doors for us and allowed us to make new friends when traveling and when hosting. We have learned so much from our travels and have been reminded of the blessings and freedoms that we are given in America. We extend an invitation to you if you are near our city to look us up. Our home is steps from beautiful Overton Park, the world class Memphis Zoo, Brooks Museum of Art, the links (golf course), Levitt Shell (amphitheater where Elvis performed his first live concert), Memphis College of Art and Rhodes College. We are also a few blocks away from Overton Square where you will find a wide selection of restaurants and theaters. You have an open invitation to stop by and say hello any time especially during the holidays. We look forward to visiting with you in the future and sharing travel experiences together. Thank you Airbnb for the avenue you have provided to connect people
