Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Auburn - Lipscomb Place Apartments

BEST LOCATION!!!! Sleeps 6. 2 bedrms, 2 baths, comfy Queen sleeper sofa

Artsy luxury apartment! Enjoy gameday entertaining and from the front lawn you can see AU's Jordan-Hare football stadium less than 3/10 mile away. You can't beat this location! On 1st floor and has 2 parking spots! Two bedrooms (Queen bed, and full size bed) PLUS queen sleeper sofa with upgraded mattress. Sleeps 6. Quartz countertops in baths and kitchen, glass tile backsplash (each unit has a different unique glass tile backsplash). Each bedroom has 2 closets. Baths have tub/shower. Full size washer/dryer. All updates and new kitchen appliances in 2015.

You can't find anything closer to the sporting events on campus from Lipscomb Place. If you stood on the roof (please don't) you can peer over Momma Goldbergs and see the dorms (between Thach and Magnolia) - so this is a great location to stay in if you have students on campus you are visiting.

Kitchen has coffee maker, utensils, dishes, serving dishes, pots, pans, etc. Nice linens, comfortable mattresses, and a tv, phone with free Nationwide calling, fax for outgoing, and Wifi.

Let me know any questions you have; I am an Auburn native and have been a Realtor here since 1998. War Eagle! Katherine Lipscomb Smith/owner

About Katherine Lipscomb Smith

I am fifth generation Auburn. My parents, Lan and Carolyn Lipscomb, had Lipscomb's Drug Store in downtown Auburn for 40+ years. My Uncle Mac owned Toomer's Drug Store.

I started AU in 1985 but then transfered to NC State (ready to leave home - but didn't take long after graduation to come back!). I have been a Realtor in Auburn for 17 years. I only sell houses/condos/land. I don't have any rentals other than the 2 buildings I own. I actually have a property manager to handle any maintenance calls and manage the remaining units that are yearly rentals. I have only furnished one unit to rent short term through VRBO.

My husband Rick was a swimmer at Univ. of New Mexico. We moved back to Auburn in 2001 to have a family. Rick got a few more degrees which is tempting to do when you live in Auburn. He has a masters in Soils & Agronomy from AU and is an Environmentalist. Our girls cheered in college and are embarking on their big dreams. Our son is an adventurer and he is going to college in California.

Katherine Lipscomb Smith purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Katherine Lipscomb Smith chose River Heritage

My parents bought this property in the 1960's. It had an old apartment building on it called the L & M (stood for lipscomb & monroe). They tore down the old buildings on this site and also next door and built lipscomb place & carlton court (next-door) in the 90's.

I felt in this location, with some proper sprucing up, these units could be awesome. But I am not very creative, so I hired a few AU architecture students and friends with talent to contribute ideas. I actually only wanted to focus on the interiors, but they had the ideas to white wash the exterior, install cypress siding, new doors, .... The list goes on.

Unit C, available for short term rental through this VRBO site, is on the 1st floor (see photos, it is downstairs and closest to momma goldberg's). The photos are of an upstairs unit, but all those furnishings were moved to Unit C on the 1st floor.. The only thing different between the units is the tile backsplash in the kitchen. I put my heart into gathering the right people with the right ideas, and driving all over dixie to find artsy furniture and a comfy sofa sleeper (that was a task!) that would keep the vibe fun. I hope you'll be my guest one day and enjoy it!

What makes this apartment unique

2 parking spaces, no elevators, 1500 feet from football stadium, front yard for gameday entertaining (installed new zoysia grass july 5, 2015), and more. Wifi.

Perfect place for our stay

  • 5 of 5

We wanted close access to the Arena and this place is perfect. The view, cleanliness, location, size, accomodations, and service were above expectation. Highly recommend. We hope to return on a future trip.

Auburn Graduation Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in a great property. Clean and well appointed.

Excellent Location overlooking the Football Stadium.

I wish it had been available during all of our Daughter's 4 years. I'm sure it will become a favorite of others as it is discovered.

Good value Vs the hotel where we stayed in the past. Little or no driving necessary to enjoy the Auburn Campus and the weekend.

Very attentive and accommodating owner.

Fantastic accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Great set up close to everything on campus! The condo is very comfortable and finished great. Beds were extremely comfortable!

Had 6 adults stay in the condo and while it was a little tight, we couldn't have found a better place!

The owner was very accomodating and helpful with anything we needed.

Will definitely stay here again!

Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit so much for ADay 2015! This was my Granddaughter's first Auburn game experience, she had a blast. The location was excellent, walking distance to stadium as well as campus and Toomer's. Katherine was very helpful and easy to contact. We were delayed in our travels but she went out of her way during her dinner with her daughter to make sure my daughter had the directions and address. She then called me to make sure they had arrived safely.

Highly recommend this location for any visit to Auburn.

Great Auburn Condo

  • 5 of 5

This Auburn condo is incredible! Completely updated and convenient to so many places in Auburn. Walking distance to Downtown , Jordan Hare, Plainsman Park,and the Arena. The owner has gone above and beyond to make this a great place to stay. We have stayed all around the Auburn area and this is by far our favorite place. Highly recommended!
