TL;DR Version:
One bedroom opening in beautiful apartment in heart of Porter Square. All residents friendly, responsible, fun and geeky! Rent ranges from $650/month to $900/month based on bedroom size, and is up for negotiation. Move-in date some time between July 1 and September 1, possibly with some flexibility if that's helpful! Link to pictures included.

Please feel free to point others at this page! We'd prefer people we know if at all possible.




One bedroom opening in a gorgeous four-bedroom apartment in the heart of Porter Square. I've lived here in some configuration or another for about a decade now, and have an excellent relationship with the landlord. The rent has varied by bedroom size lately, with the smallest costing $650/month and the largest $900/month. The bedroom opening is technically a larger one, but there's some talk of people within the apartment moving to bigger rooms, so don't let that deter you!

The move-in date is currently being sorted out. It will certainly be by September 1, but could be as soon as July 1.

The full photo list can be found here. Note: Please excuse the odd album name. Pictures are taken on an iPhone rather than a real camera. The common room pictures are pretty indicative of roughly how clean we keep the place. The large bedroom pictures (and the bathroom) are oddly yellow-tinted and seriously outdated in terms of clutter. I hope to have better pictures of the large bedroom soon.

The Place
More about the apartment . . .
  • Location: The house is on a quiet tree-lined street off of Elm Street, the main thoroughfare between Porter and Davis Square. The walk from here to Porter is about three minutes.
  • Space and Amenities: We have a spacious living room and dining room separated with French doors, a big kitchen with modern amenities including a fairly new stove and a dishwasher, and a free washer and dryer in the basement. We also have two porches in good repair that have served us well in social situations.
  • Furnishings: Most of the common rooms will be pre-furnished with our things, but we'd love additions to the place! Come see; it's pretty swank.
  • Landlord: The landlord only owns this property. He's kind, respectful, attentive, timely and cares a lot about his tenants; he's kept the rent lower than he would offer to new people, and he's had us over for dinner a few times in the years we've lived here.
  • Geekery: The apartment would come with everything we own, including a full entertainment system (with Playstation III, XBox 360 with Rock Band 2 set, and Wii), a laser printer and tons of board/card games, and wired and wireless Internet options.
  • Misc.: No pets. No smoking, even on the porches; you'll be asked to do it on the curb. House is in no way childproofed.


Us
We are three young professionals and geeks whose ages range from mid-twenties to mid-thirties. Our fields vary greatly, from law (J.), to Library Science (K.) to Psychology (me). We all enjoy the arts, some of us active members of the local theater communities (Theatre@First, Post-Meridian Radio Players). We all like to cook; some of us are more experienced than others. Our interests overlap in other ways -- J. and I are both LARPers and video game players, K. and I both enjoy fashion and costuming, and so on. We endeavor to be friendly, open-minded, responsible and communicative.

You!
We're looking for someone who:
  • pays rent and other bills on time, and takes responsibility for managing the cost breakdown of one utility in the house.
  • keeps the apartment clean. We're not obsessive about it, but like to think of the place as a home as much as possible, and that includes keeping it tidy. We've lately been able to manage keeping the place clean without a chore list, but may consider instituting one if others prefer.
  • is open-minded, specifically to queer/poly folks.
  • is communicative. We try to address any house concerns in a forthright, tactful manner that respects everyone's perspectives, and we hope for the same behavior from our housemates.
  • is preferably geeky and doesn't mind occasional social events. If you prefer to keep to yourself or aren't into what we're into, that's totally fine! But we welcome those who indulge in mour hobbies and would enjoy our occasional get-togethers.


If this sounds like your cup of tea, please feel free to reply to me here or over e-mail if you have that address. Thanks for reading, and we look forward to hearing from you!

Interested in Apt.

Hi, just got pointed to you via [livejournal.com profile] tikva - well, on Twitter, and I figured it's easier to "talk" here than there ('specially since my Twitter account's flocked). My (lj-less) friend J.St.P is looking for a place, so I sent him the link. Let me know if you want to know how we're connected more. :)
