Apartment: Special space for rent, a studio apartment supporting painting, writing, composing, healing or anything you need or want it to be. We have a 600 sq. ft. furnished, private “apartment”, glassed-in on two sides, creating a sense of floating in the forest. Located 15 minutes from the center of campus, it is quietly remote, a refuge in the woods. It has the elegance of modern design, and the warmth of creative architectural detail. The property is 30 yards from the owner’s residence but is exclusively yours to live in. Month-to-month lease, if you wish. Utilities (gas, water, electricity), WI-FI, AC and central heat, WD, garbage removal, and free parking (no garage) are included in the rent. This has never been an AirBNB.
