Hi Friends -- We are looking for a great roommate to take an open bedroom in our house in Brighton. Just be awesome. Ready?
THE ROOM: (available starting April 1, 2017!) The room is roughly 10x12 with a closet and two south facing windows. It is FURNISHED with a queen bed and desk.
THE PLACE: The condo within a house has a beautiful full marble bathroom with a vaulted/sky lit ceiling, pedestal sink, modern toilet, and a full tub with massage jets. Water pressure is solid. There is a dining room with a integrated china cabinet, pub table and seating for 6, a family room with tons of light, leather sectional sofa, and a 50" Plasma HDTV- The place is taking on an Asian influenced decor, which I tend to enjoy. The kitchen is huge, with a counter top that turns into a peninsula with stool seating for 3. There is a double sink with disposal, huge double-vertical door fridge, and gas range + microwave + dishwasher - all these appliances are stainless and new. The apartment has all new windows (stays warm in the winter), gas heat, two outdoor decks, lots of big 80+ year old trees and greenery. The basement has a ton of storage and I've built out a pretty cool workshop with all kinds of tools for building stuff. Expect some fun bbq's on our rear patio with a big grill, fire pit and hammock. There is free laundry in the basement (top load washer and dryer). The apt is on Nottinghill Rd in Brighton, a very nice, quiet street shared with young profs and families - the street is a closed loop with no through traffic (stays quiet). The 501 bus (express downtown) as well as the 503 express to Copley is a 2 min walk through a charming little park where all the little neighborhood brats play (literally a few hundred feet away). The Green line is a realistic 5 min walk away(B line- yes it's slow, but not horrendous- 30 min to downtown, makes for good reading time). A pleasant 12 min walk gets you on the C line going down Beacon street at a quicker pace. Whole Foods is right around the corner as is Beacon Hill Athletic Club - a nice sub-$70/mo gym. Parking is free and unlimited with a Brighton parking permit.
THE DEAL: I am asking $999/month rent + $200 utilities/extras for a package deal of $1199 which includes EVERYTHING:
-Gas heat, hot water
-Comcast cable (available in the room) with all the channels
-Internet with 50 mbs wifi
-Free Digital air conditioner to keep you cool all summer - delivered, installed and removed
-Periodic house cleaning by professional maid service
-Full-service off-site storage for your seasonal items, with pickup and delivery.
There is also no security deposit or fee and only first and last month's rent due to start. A lease is not required, though I can draw one up on request.
ABOUT ME: I love living in this house - it's split into two condo units, one of which I bought in 2008. I've lived with over 30 people in this house over the years, and it's become somewhat of a lifestyle for me. I enjoy meeting interesting new people and I've hosted housemates from all over the world for anywhere from a week to 3 years. Think of it as somewhere between a hostel and a B&B - it's been a blast. I am an entrepreneur, friendly and easy-going, and a bit on the introverted side. I do enjoy hanging out with my housemates, but I'm not seeking their attention constantly. I'm into healthy living and enjoying life - I like to make music, am deepening my yoga practice, enjoy cooking, reading and like to travel. I'm open minded; inquisitive but respectful, of strong opinion at times but mostly reasonable. I have two cats who enjoy discussing philosophy and laying on sunny spots on the floor. They're brothers. I share an amazing dog with a friend and he also hangs out at the house from time to time. I'm looking for housemates who value the sharing of a home and with whom we can grow and learn. It's important for us to 'interview' people thoroughly to find a good fit. This is a social as well as a residential commitment. I look forward to meeting you!
