1BR / 1Ba available now
rent period: monthly
A quiet, single room in Boston College Station Neighborhood, Brighton, is available for 1-year lease, available July 1st. The room is on the garden level, with a nice view of the trees and ground outside but less access to sunlight, but at a prime location within walking distance to Bostom College. The Boston College branch of the MBTA's "Green Line" (B Train) ends at the foot of the campus on Commonwealth Avenue. Bus stations are all within walking distance; the one I know is a10-minute walk away next to Boston College. You have 1 parking spot (if you need it, it is an additional $40 per month). $800/month; utilities include (high-speed internet, electricity, gas, plumbing, and garbage disposal.)

The room does not include basic furnishings, but you can choose to have the big wood dresser, a dining room chair, a desk chair with seat cushions, tables and shelves, and 3 plastic cabinets for free. You will need to bring your own bed. You will share the space with a nice Chinese couple, a total of 3 people. Since the apartment is at Garden level, during summer, it is not hot at all, and during winter, it is not too cold.

If you need help moving furniture, we can schedule a time, and I can help you (no stairs are needed for the moving). Our main door requires a Master key, which gives the residents added security. The packages we ordered here are kept very safe.

We do have a small kitchen, and we would prefer someone who does not like to cook or use the kitchen a lot (30 minutes to an hour a day altogether, that's why the rent is so cheap!) since we use the kitchen a lot. We have a microwave that can be shared, but not kitchen utensils, glasses, bowls, and plates. We share one bathroom (we both do not work the morning shift, so the bathroom is very available during the mornings but not later in the afternoon and at night). There will also be a common area for us to share, with a dining table where you can eat, separate from our dining table (we are converting the room with a big desk with office chair into a common area. There is pretty good privacy for everyone since we are converting our bigger room into a common area). The laundry room is just 2 doors away; the Automatic Laundry App operates it on your iPhone, or laundry card can be used.

We are looking for a quiet, mature person who needs a quiet, secure room. We prefer someone older (i.e., late 20s/30s plus), a working professional and/or grad student, a visiting scholar, etc. Generally, everyone here comes and goes on their schedule. We are looking for someone who would fit into that kind of household. We will clean all common areas, and we expect you to be reasonably clean and clean after yourself, not piling dirty dishes at the sink and helping take the trash out from time to time. No cigarettes, no excessive alcohol, no drugs AT ALL!

We prefer no pets. The location is convenient to everything. Plenty of stores, restaurants, and supermarkets are within a 5-10 minute walk. The surroundings are beautiful, right next to a park/lake and a swimming pool that opens during the summer.

Email me if you are interested, and we can talk. Serious inquiries only. Price is not negotiable since this is an excellent deal for this location, and we have a parking spot at the apartment complex parking lot. Work/school reference, personal reference, criminal background check, and a signed rental agreement with a check for both months' rent paid in advance.
