Hi, I've been living in the West End of Malden near the Oak Grove T in a very nice house for 10 years but my landlord wants to renovate my apartment and sell the house, so I have to move. I have some flexibility in the timing of the move, but I hope to move as soon as possible.
I'm hoping to find a first floor apartment nearby in Malden.
I need to be close to a T stop (bus or subway) since I don't have a car and need to commute to work.
I'm a quiet, responsible tenant, an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher (who also works in Cambridge in a literacy program for families with young children) who is a non-smoker with no pets, no kids, no car. :)
I'd love to find a place with hw floors. I prefer a house to a large building -- I really want to control my own heat.
I also really want it to be on the first floor -- much easier with groceries, etc.
And have gas heat because oil heat has been so expensive.
(Thanks for the offers of apartment-sharing, 2nd floor apts. or apts. in towns farther from the T, but I really want my own 1st flr place and need to accommodate all my commuting needs. So far, I'm being very particular, but I hope to not have to move again for a long time. I've decided not to look in Melrose as the buses and commuter rail do not run often enough for me.)
