Hello! I'm looking for a roommate to rent one bedroom in a 3 bedroom, 1 bath house in West Madison. I'd like to keep the third bedroom open as a guest room / office / extra living space. The bedrooms are all upstairs and about 11' x 11' with closets. The downstairs has two separate living areas with a decent size kitchen including a gas stove and full sized fridge. There is a full washer and dryer in the unfinished basement. The house has a large backyard and porch with lots of shade from several trees on the property. No garage but there is a driveway and plenty of off street parking. The house is in a great location - only a couple of miles from campus, Monroe St. shops and downtown Madison.
About me: I moved to Madison to start a post-doc with the USDA's Dairy Forage Research Station. I have a medium-sized, short-haired dog, Dozer. He is super friendly with people but doesn't get along with other animals so unless you have a pet that stays in a cage, I unfortunately cannot allow any other pets. In my free time, I like to cook, hike, practice yoga and garden. Around the house I like to keep a clean and comfortable living environment but I'm not a neat freak.
Rent is 700 plus utilities (heat, water, and electricity). Ideally I'd like to find someone to sign up for a year lease but would be open to shorter leases as well. Let me know if you'd like to come by to see the place!
