House: I am looking for someone to take over my lease starting in early August for a full year. The house is a cute 2 bedroom (the dining room can be used as a 3rd bedroom for an extra fee), 1 bath home with all wood floors, lots of built-ins, a small front porch, new windows, gas stove, and a washer/dryer in an unfinished basement. I've lived here in all four seasons and the heat and AC work very well. The landlord is pet-friendly and there is a large unfenced yard and off-street parking for 2 or 3 cars behind the house. The location is especially great-six blocks to IU, three blocks to Bryan Park, on a quiet street with IU faculty/staff and IU Health employees as neighbors. This house would be great for grad students or IU faculty/staff looking for a short walkable commute.
