This is your initial view when you walk in the front door.
This is if you look off to the right a bit from the front door. The first door on the right goes into the office/living room area. Steps go to the bedrooms on the middle level, and door off to the left goes into the dining room and then kitchen.
Stairs to the middle bedroom area where the two rooms for rent are located.
Near the top of the stairs. The door cracked open on the right is bedroom 1, the larger of the two.
This is looking down the hallway at the top of the stairs. The open door with lights is the main bathroom with shower.
If you take a couple more steps forward in the hallway, The closed door on your left is the closet for bedroom 2 and is very large for this type of house as it fits under the stairs. The second door cracked open goes up to the large attic/TV/foosball room. The third open door is the bathroom/shower, and the door open and lighted to the right of the curved wall is Bedroom 2 that is for rent.
Bedroom 1 $550/m single or $350/m each double occupancy.
The bed, dresser, and nightstand stay, although you are welcome to switch to bunk beds instead if needed to share the room. You bring your own bedding, lights, and decorations. Wall art can stay if you'd like. We ask that use existing nails for art if possible, but if you add more, please use small nails or thumbtacks, no sticky hanging methods. To hang anything heavy or large, you must clear it with us. If approved, we will hang it for you to avoid damage to the newly renovated walls.
Bedroom 2 $475/m
The twin storage bed and desk is included (if desired) and there are ceiling strip lights that provide your room lighting. You bring your own bedding and decorations. Wall art can stay if you'd like. We ask that you use existing nails for art if possible, but if you add more, please use small nails or thumbtacks, no sticky hanging methods. To hang anything heavy or large, you must clear it with us. If approved, we will hang it for you to avoid damage to the newly renovated walls.
Like most houses in this area, the main bathroom is small, so you will need to keep most personal items in a portable basket or bathroom bag. The shower is a full size shower that easily fits my 6 ft, 250 lb husband. There is a closet with towels and washcloths. Toilet paper must be single-ply to avoid clogging the older plumbing. There is also a second toilet room in the basement laundry area.
The upper floor is a very large attic room with a large-screen TV, two desks, futon-like couch and lounge chairs that convert to comfortable sleeping space. This room is not on the house furnace, so you have to turn on electric baseboard heat or the window air conditioning unit when you wish to use it, and you must remember to turn them off again when you leave.
Office & Living Room Combo into Kitchen Dinette
Let's go back downstairs and look around the main floor living space. First, you will walk into the office with a sleeper couch, printer (renters pay to replace toner), desk and cabinet. That is connected to the living room with a couch, oversized chair, rocking chair, and TV console.
