1918 S. 9th (Ground floor)
2 Bedroom / 1 Bath / Sleeps 4
Built as Dottie Botkin’s Ballet Studio in the 1950’s, the Dance Hall is our Texas Urban Loft style space, where back in “the day”, half of Abilene learned to dance! 2 bedrooms (One with a Queen and the other with two Twins) and 1 bath are tucked into this open, high ceilinged, apartment. The master bedroom headboard was constructed from the turquoise doors of a “57” Chevy pickup truck and a 30 foot long wall was covered in the backs of 200 blue and turquoise books. Polished concrete floors, tract lighting and a kitchen counter backsplash covered with 2,700 pennies create conversation and intrigue. Raw wooden beams, antique ceiling tin tiles and lots of silvery metal accents compliment the turquoise and french blue color scheme. We call the second bedroom, “The Bunker” because the twin beds are built in, much like a ship’s cabin. There’s lot of “eye candy” here, and innovation reins in this sleek, 2 bedroom, 1 bath Loft.
