International students welcome. 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 a university professional who has a good sense of humor and is happy to help when you need it. --------------------------------------- $595 per month for an ample bedroom with a four-poster double bed, an upholstered chair, a table, and a bureau . This includes all utilities, which have risen as years go by. Good day! This sweet owner-occupied, two-bedroom home 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. 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 26 years and raised my two sons here. I am almost 59 years old and have a lovely, mellow dog, Shelby, who is now 11 years old. I work at the university and was a journalist in the past. At home, I read quite a lot and work on projects. It is a very quiet house. I occasionally listen to classical music, old mystery radio and the news, and subscribe to the New York Times and the New Yorker magazine. 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. 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. All utilities are included with the rent. You'll need to contribute toward paper goods, such as TP and towels, probably $25 or $30 per semester. 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! Kathy
