This is the view from the road right in front of the house.
The front porch includes two rocking chairs and a 4 person conversation set with table. It is a great place to sit on nice days.

View of the park/roads
Woodlawn Street is special because it has a park in the middle and uses two, one-way streets to access the homes.
Access to the Carriage House where the lawnmower and other supplies are stored.
Small conversation set. There is usually a propane fire pit with four chairs on the ground level patio.
823 Woodlawn Street
This 3-4 bedroom rental property has 2 bedrooms open to rent by Marywood University Students, available starting June 12th, utilities included. A different, prorated move-in time may be possible if needed.
An easy walk to the University (9 minutes), it is on a highly sought-after street with a small park in the middle of two one-way roads. You cannot turn left out of the driveway, you turn right, go to the next intersection, and turn around to come back up on the other side of the park. It is gorgeous in the spring, summer, and fall. The house has a driveway that fits 3 cars (one spot is reserved by the current renter already) and street parking. Using the driveway means working together to organize the cars each night in order of who leaves first. :-) The house to the right and many others on this street are also Marywood Student Rentals.
Bedroom 1 is big enough for two students to share with bunk beds and has a large closet. $550 per month for one student or $350 per month per student if two share the room.
Bedroom 2 has a twin bed with storage underneath and a desk with a large closet in the hallway. $500 per month.
Bedroom 3 is currently occupied by a second-year B.Arch. major (male, though any gender is welcome as they are private bedrooms).
Attic bed is used 2-5 weeknights for the 22/23 school year only by a female Scranton Prep student (who is also the B.Arch student's sister).
Rent is paid in six-month increments from 6/12 through 12/11 and 12/12 through 6/11 and is due one month prior to the rental period start date (so no later than 5/12 for fall or 11/12 for spring. A non-refundable, one-month deposit is required to hold the room until the balance is paid in full (the deposit is applied to the balance or carried forward to reserve the following semester if you wish to stay).
Renters are responsible for keeping up with the mowing/shoveling and trash/recycling removal.
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 $500/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. 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. NOTE: The attic space will be rented/used 2-5 nights per week during fall semester 2022 and spring semester 2023 but it will be available to all housemates during the day plus every Friday and Saturday night and any night not in use. There will not be anyone using that space after June 5, 2023.
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.
