There is a three car garage and we have two cars (Prius and Jeep) which we plan to leave in the driveway, leaving two useable garages. Use of the cars is negotiable. In the winter the tenants have to clear the sidewalk in case of snow. Leaf removal will be arranged by us. In the spring the tenants should mow the lawn at least every two weeks (takes about an hour); a local company will start up and set the irrigation system. We have two very personable outdoor/indoor cats that we wish the tenant to take care of (feed once a day, let the cats in at least for the night). If this is a problem, we will try to re-home the cats. The neighborhood is Hyde Park and is about 2 miles from the main IU campus; we have a couple of bicycles that the tenant can use. The house is situated in a non-thru street with little traffic. There are nearby parks one of which is within walking distance.
