Scholar's refuge...Furnished cozy rooms. International and older students and visiting faculty especially welcome!
All utilities included in rent -- depending on your use (if super high, we'd need to talk!) washer downstairs. Available Summer 2020 for 1-3 months, $150 per week, negotiable. Also available August 2020, one semester minimum. All utilities included except paper goods, which we will split.
You may enjoy the madding crowds, but you don't have to sleep in their din.... you can return after school or work to the east side where it's peaceful. You'd live with an older woman who has a good sense of humor and is happy to help when you need it.
PLEASE NOTE: I work evenings and arrive home at midnight. My ideal renter is someone who knows how to be very quiet in the mornings, as I often need to sleep until 8 AM.
$560 per month for fall and spring semesters, ample bedroom with good furniture. Utilities included; will need to discuss your needs.
This house is perfect for mature students and scholars who want to live in a quiet, family-oriented neighborhood along with other professionals and families. It's in the Atwood neighborhood, near the Barrymore Theater, the Harmony Bar, many shops and restaurants, the Goodman Center, in the midst of a lot of funky east side culture. Freshly painted, clean, spacious, and quiet. I ask that housemates are are quiet and respectful. As I mentioned, I need to sleep late in mornings so please tiptoe around.
The house features two large bedrooms (one is yours), one full and one half-bath, a large living room, a mid-sized kitchen, a sweet front porch in the summer, and a beautiful back yard and flower garden.
I have considerable experience with international students and for many years, volunteered with Madison Friends of International Students prior to my sons' moving out. I've had guests and renters from every continent except Australia.
I have lived here for 27 years and raised my two sons here. I am 59 years old and have a lovely, mellow dog, Shelby, who is now 13 years old.
The house is close to numerous buslines and a bicycle path that goes straight to the Capitol and downtown.
Free parking is available on the street but you do have to move a car from time to time, as per city regulations. Off-street parking possible, in my driveway behind my car.
The Goodman Center is two blocks away, and offers yoga classes and an exercise/weight room. They accept cash per visit. The food store Woodman's is close by, as is Jenifer Street Market and the Willy Street Co-op.
If you are interested, please write a personal message and tell me about yourself: who you are, why you will visit, an area of study, your living style. I look forward to hearing from you!
