Professor (39 year old gay) is seeking one or two housemates for a lovely home in the quiet West Side neighborhood of Prospect Hill. One or two bedrooms are available for rental for the 2016-2017 school year starting August 15 and ending the following August 15. If I have two housemates, the rent will be $500 each all-inclusive (rent, utilities, garbage, internet, Netflix, Hulu) and a little more if you want to use the cable. If one person takes both rooms (ideal if you want your own office or your own living room) the rent would be $750 all inclusive. You’d also have your own bathroom on the first floor. If two roommates, that bathroom would be shared. The bedrooms are bright and sunny with lots of storage space. We also have a mud room for additional storage. The house has a big, beautiful woody backyard with a fire pit and the occasional deer, washer/dryer, and a fully furnished living room and dining room. The house is on West 4th Street and it’s about a ten minute walk to downtown and a fifteen minute walk to the Sample Gates. There is ample parking. I’ve had a very friendly and symbiotic experience with my two housemates this year and I’m hoping to find one or two great people to live with. One is going to pursue her graduate study in New York and the other is moving to her own apartment. They’ll happily provide references. Contract me by email or phone. You can come on by and check it out or I can send you some photos if you’re not in town yet.
