One room in a single-family home for a special person with impeccable references. We are renting out 3 rooms in a 4-bedroom house. Rent for this room is $850.00/month plus 1/4 utilities. WIFI included. We have had some wonderful interns in the past so we know that there are others out there–who need a clean, convenient place to eat, sleep and study, who will not have a lot of company and don’t need to have parties here. No parties. There are currently two very nice young professionals.
We are renting the home for an elder who currently lives in an Assisted Living residence. We would be at the house occasionally cleaning out the attic and other spaces. Mostly it would be just you there. The room currently available has twin beds plus a desk and dresser and more. There is a closet in each room with some storage elsewhere on the property. The house is old but clean and with many updates including central air conditioning. Even though the room has 2 beds, the room is for one (1) person. We can remove a bed if necessary.
There is one full bathroom on the 2nd floor that is shared by the renters plus a powder room on the first floor. We will work with you so set up a room to your liking and can provide towels, washcloths, sheets, and blankets. Washer and dryer in the basement and shared with one other person who lives in the basement.
You have access to the full kitchen (with a large table) and a living room and dining room. You can sit and sun–or do your yoga–in the enclosed back yard. There is secure storage for bicycles.
It is expected that you will keep your space(s) clean but we will occasionally do a whole-house cleaning–including your space(s).
The house has free off-street secure parking for small to a mid-size car but there is usually street parking in front of the house. Three blocks to the Georgia Ave/Petworth METRO station. Safeway is two blocks away. Great restaurants, including HOMESTEAD, are within 3 blocks. CVS 3 blocks.
No smoking in or around the house. No pets. Signed room rental agreement, refundable security deposit of one month’s rent and first month’s rent required before move-in. Reply with your name, phone, and e-mail written into your reply, a little bit about yourself, your schedule, and how long you’d ideally be looking for a place. Thanks!
Apply now for the Fall 2018 semester. We’ve had interns from Oregon, Iowa, California and even Belgium. Maybe you will be our next housemate!
