The available room is the middle one with the pink décor (first 2 images of this post). I'm a 34 year old woman looking for a female-identifying roommate for a 9/1/24 (September) lease in a large 2BR/1BA apartment in the heart of Brighton Center.

About the unit:
  • 1st floor unit in a 3-floor townhouse, 1,200 sq feet total
  • Full kitchen with gas range, refrigerator, ample cabinet/counter space, bay window and pantry
  • Living room with opening that flows into dining space with built in hutch
  • Hardwood floors throughout
  • Private covered deck and shared backyard space - grills allowed
  • Room is Unfurnished - but commons spaces are currently furnished
  • Central air conditioning (tenants pay electric), gas heat (tenants pay), water/sewage (included in rent)
  • No washer/dryer but there is a laundromat across the street
  • Resident permit street parking
  • Located in Brighton Center and close to neighborhood bars, restaurants, shops and 1 mile away from Boston Landing development (Roadrunner music venue, New Balance office, etc.)
  • Public Transportation: Express bus to Copley/Financial District: (503, 501), Harvard Square: 86, Kenmore/Watertown: 57 and <1 mile walk from Boston Landing commuter rail stop and Warren St Green Line T Stop
  • Whole Foods and Stop & Shop within a mile

Total Costs of moving in:
  • Rental application/background check processing fee (TBD but this was $35 in 2022)
  • Your portion of first month’s rent $1,250
  • Your portion of Security Deposit $1,250 (this one I'll double check on, if the return of the full deposit goes back to me because it's my check that's getting held for the MA deposit interest then I'm ok with moving forward with the first two payments listed above ($1,250+processing fee)

Other recurring costs:
  • Internet - xfinity only in the building - I don't need cable but happy to discuss if this is a must for you!
  • Electric, gas
  • Shared apartment purchases (kitchen, cleaning stuff, etc.) -- happy to coordinate either alternating buying a batch of supplies or doing split venmo costs, I'm pretty flexible

About me / you / living situation:
Hoping to find someone that I could have a positive and warm living environment with. I like a tidy shared space and am looking for a roommate who is mindful of common spaces (living room, kitchen, shared bathroom): if something is dirty, we pitch in and clean without being asked, take out trash/empty dishwasher/sweep floor/etc.

I welcome get-togethers and friends in the apartment but am not looking for a party household. I have a hybrid work schedule where I work from home 2-3 days a week and have my work space in the dining room, happy to move things around to accommodate a 2nd work station in the common space. While I love furry visitors (I dogsit a couple times a month, a cute basset hound) no pets are allowed.

The owners are attentive and live a mile from the apartment and are a sweet older couple - do all their rent payments by check and prefer direct calls for maintenance and other requests.


Send me a message with a little about yourself and any questions you have!
