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'm hoping to find an affordable first floor apartment nearby, but I'm considering Melrose and Cambridge, too.
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'm also hoping it'll be gas heat this time as oil heat has been quite expensive.
I really want it to be on the first floor -- much easier with groceries, etc.
(Thanks for the offers for a 2nd floor or 3rd floor apartment, but I really need a First Floor apartment.)
(Also, thanks for offers in Burlington, Wakefield, Salem, Stoneham, Saugus and Woburn -- but those are too far for me to easily take buses to work.)
(And I don't want just a room -- I don't want to get rid of my furniture and books... I've appreciated the calls from people looking for a roommate to share their nice apartments, but I have too much stuff after 10 years here and I really don't want to get rid of everything and downsize that much! I'm looking for my own apartment - not a shared apartment.)
