This Alpha's Carbondale Apartment / Carbondale House Features:

Located in a wonderful family neighborhood (many of the houses in both the 700 and 800 block street are owner occupied) but still zoned for occupancy by 3 unrelated people, this house has been a grad student's delight. Convenient to Schnucks, Burger King, the video store, and Midcountry Bank (which are located on the corner of Main and Oakland) it's easy to get life's basics done in a short walk or drive! Oakland Street ends behind the parking lot of the Communications building, making it less than a 5 minute drive or 10 minute walk to campus. Pecan Street is approximately 2 blocks north of Main Street and 703 is approximately one block east of Oakland on the south side of the street. Several bus lines are within a three block walk of the house. It is a one story 1908 house, with original woodwork and refinished wood floors in several of the rooms. The kitchen has been renovated with oak cabinets, dishwasher and lots of storage space. The bathroom was also renovated to "modern plumbing". As was common in that era, the ceilings are tall and are trimmed with cove moulding. There is an "extra" small room at the front of the house that has served as an office, storage room, and child's play room. There is a large wood deck on the front of the house and a smaller wood deck in the back. 

Technically, this is a duplex, but it does not have a common wall: it has a common breezeway style roof with the 1 bedroom flat that is located behind the house. Parking is on street, off street in the driveway accessed from Pecan Street or in the parking lot that is accessed from the alley that runs from Oakland to 701 Pecan Street.
