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 (teaching in Revere also) (who also works in Cambridge in a literacy program for families with young children), 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 gas heat is important 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 floor place and need to accommodate all my commuting needs. I've decided not to look in Melrose as the buses and commuter rail do not run often enough for me.)
