Note: this home was built in the 1800s! There is a low part in the ceiling of this lower level bedroom. You can see it in the pictures. If you are 6'2/6'3 or over, you will have to bend slightly.The basement location and insulating brick walls mean you will be naturally cool in the summer (no window and no AC in this room) and warm in the winter (you control your own heat).  A fan is provided.
