120ft2

Hello!

We are three roommates sharing a beautiful home in the Davis Square neighborhood of Somerville. We are offering a room, roughly 10' x 12', right next to the entrance to the home for daytime/work-only use.

Estimated costs for a variety of scenarios:

Full-time roommate: $1100/mo + 1/4 of total utilities
Exclusive use of room + 3-5 nights per month overnight: $900/mo + 1/4 of total utilities
Exclusive use of room but no overnights: $800/mo + 1/6 of total utilities
Non-exclusive use of room, daytime only: $500/mo, no utilities

Use of basement space negotiable, estimate between $100-300/mo additional cost depending on amount and use of space.

In addition to the room, you'd have access to our kitchen, downstairs bathroom, gorgeous living room and other common areas, as well as the possibility of a large finished basement (not pictured) for additional workspace and storage.

Driveway parking is often available; there are also Somerville guest passes for what is usually easy-to-find on-street parking. House is also steps from the Davis Square T and is also very close to bus stops on Mass ave. Quick access to rt 2 and 95 as well.

This room was rented by a full-time roommate for the past few years, and we are attempting to see if we can find a part-time tenant, due to the proximity of the room to the kitchen and main entrance to the home. It would be a great fit for a writer, visual artist, product/still-life photographer, programmer, or anyone looking for a quiet place to work away from their home. We are unfortunately not open to a client-based service provider such as a masseuse or therapist, since there'd be no guarantee of client privacy.

The house is outfitted with Gigabit wireless internet service, and offers plenty of other amenities such as a garbage disposal, dishwasher, washer and dryer in the basement, central air, lovely backyard space for sitting and working, and much more.

We are a married couple (he: full-time freelance portrait photographer and actor, she: full-time office manager and photographer) and a third male roommate (high school english teacher.) Married couple is very busy and often not home, though the portrait photographer does his editing and office work upstairs during the day. English teacher keeps fairly regular hours and is quiet and respectful.

We are all working, respectful, professional, and polite adults- our ideal tenant is the same.

Rent is negotiable based on your anticipated occupancy; occasional overnight stays can be discussed, but we'd mostly like the room to remain empty between midnight and 6AM. We'd also greatly prefer that we are able to use the room as a guest room on occasion- we would buy and supply a futon and infrequently host friends and family in the room.

I know this is a somewhat unusual arrangement, but this would be our ideal scenario before we switch our search to full-time roommates.

Please feel free to call, text, or email with questions. The room is available as soon as tomorrow; we're flexible regarding a lease start.
