Looking to sublet one room of a two room apartment (located at 121 1/2 N. College Ave., Apt. 133) that is set atop of the infamous Scholars Inn Bakehouse in downtown Bloomington, overlooking city hall and the rest of the square. Without bias, I can honestly say that this is probably the best deal you will find, and the only reason I’m willing to lease it out for $200/month less that what I am paying (I will pay the difference) is because I will be studying in Barcelona next semester and need to find a tenant in the next month. The apartment is furnished with a 50 inch HD TV, along with a refrigerator, stove, washing machine, laundry machine in the unit, coffee table, awesome decorations in the living room, a kitchen table, a bathroom, kitchen chairs, and a queen size mattress and bedside table and drawer. Moreover, the living room is enormous and extremely spacious, and the location is ideal. You will have access to everything you need, and are situated in the heart of downtown Bloomington. Beginnning and End Dates of Availability: December 19, 2014 - August 19, 2015.
Rent: $750/month (a bargain) - willing to negotiate
