While I appreciate the supportive posts about finding people, I'll be removing them so people skimming don't think there's more interest in the apartment than there actually is.
So I'm wondering if there's anyone out there that's looking to move to the Porter Square area. I'm still considering the possibility of staying in this great Porter Square apartment if I can find others amenable; it's a heck of a lot more convenient for me, and this apartment is amazing
, especially considering the price.
The place consists of:
- A fairly large living room and dining room connected by two large sliding doors (real wood with a latch built into the walls, not some flimsy add-on job)
- A HUGE kitchen with a recent model gas stove and a dishwasher
- A reasonably well-sized bathroom with new toilet
- Four bedrooms of varying sizes (two on the HUGE end, one on the smallish end, one on the small end)
- A free washer/dryer in the basement
- Plenty of storage space
In addition, the place is run by an astounding
landlord who is kind, sane, smart and cares a lot about his tenants. So much so, in fact, that he's offering any group I bring in personally a notable discount on the year's rent (he's keeping it basically the same price we paid last year for us, but raising it for others to make up for a loss in the previous year.) We're an extremely simple seven-minute walk from the T, and that's walking slowly. We're convenient to the 24-hour Shaw's and CVS without feeling like we're living in a shopping complex; we live on a quiet, tree-lined street just off of Elm Street, the first street past the Porter Shopping Mall.
This is all available for the remarkably low (for its area) rent of just over $750.00 per person. (I think the total rent if
I stay is something like $3070. If not, it leaps up considerably.)
In addition, if you were to live here you would have use of any of the furniture I already provide as well as a complete entertainment system with PSII, XBox and Wii. I am generally an open-minded, friendly, sociable and geeky person to live with who thinks of herself as being very responsible when it comes to paying bills and pretty middle-of-the-road when it comes to cleaning.
But to do this, I'll need to move soon
. This place is remarkably underpriced for its area and condition and will likely be rented out from under us in a few weeks. If you're interested, please let me know soon? *smile*
Unfortunately, we cannot take pets or children. I would also prefer no smokers; if you were to live here, you would be requested to smoke outside a bit of a distance from the house, not just on the porches. Whether we have two or three bedrooms available depends on whether tiurin
commits to another location before we find people. If he stays, we have one large and one small bedroom available. If he doesn't, we have one large, one smallish and one small bedroom available.
