The Finch Hall is a historic building just north of the River, adjacent to the Kendall Yards area. Construction of this solid and stately brick building began in 1928
Originally it was a dormitory for Spokane nurses. It was then converted into apartments about fifteen years ago, and then finally last year to a group of 19 luxury condominiums.
The building sits on the bluff of the Spokane River. Across the street, hidden just under the bank, is the new portion of the fabulous Centennial Trail. Here you will find a largely non-traffic route to miles and miles of beautiful hiking and biking to the north and to the east, and south Kendall Yards and downtown Spokane. Or you can cross the river on the pedestrian bridge near People’s Park and make your way to the Fish Lake Trail, Aubrey White Park and Riverside State park.
(Great location.) The view out over the bluff is spectacular, the sunsets are photograph worthy.
But you won’t see it from this apartment. 🙂 You will have to go outside. But you might be interested in inside as well
Unit 103 is the largest unit in the complex. It sits tucked in the ground floor, with two convenient exits out to the garden and trail–one is the left side of the picture above.
Here is what you see on entering–very dormitory. Terrazzo flooring. Indestructible. I wish we could get it now.
The stairs you want are just to the right of this. (And who has a water fountain now?)
On the bottom floor to the right, look for the door is near this:
(The print was given to me by my Grandmother Alice, “The Pharaoh’s Horses”).
The door is to the left of this bench.
Open door and enter the long hall to a basement apartment with many windows.
It has lots of light and air and is a fun, protected space.
(Never mind it is filled with art and quirky Mid Century to Steam Punk decor). It’s a nice place to be.
I was shocked (shocked!) when our friend Dave walked in and said “Oh, the Lo-o-o-ove couch.”
It has a story. . . don’t we all?
Unit 103 has a very complete kitchen with dishwasher, good ventilation and a LOT of fun cooking equipment. If you like to cook, we have you covered.
We have plans for an eat-in kitchen table and a personal clothes washer, but for the moment there is a dining room table and complete laundry about thirty feet away.
High speed internet and normal TV are one click away.
We hope you will be comfortable if you come and stay. Reports from our first visitor are that she loved the bed, the place was fun and really clean. She mentioned being amused by the gurgling of the water pipes that feed the radiators and was happy that she could turn them down–there was plenty of heat. My translation of this is that if you were a very light sleeper the noise of the water circulating might be something to think about–all in all a good start.
Please ask if you have questions. Dale
