Property Details
*** When responding to this post, please describe yourself, what you do, what you are looking for in a place to live, and why this house sounds like a good choice for you. One line emails such as "is it still available?" will be deleted. ***

i live in a sweet little house in east urbana, only four blocks from lincoln square, and i'm looking for the right person (or couple of people) to share my home with. it is not a simple, traditional tenant situation, as i am not a simple, traditional home owner. so, i'm looking for someone who would really understand and appreciate this home, and who would bring their own good energy to the space...

so, let me say a little bit about the house:

there are currently two bedrooms available, both can be furnished with full sized beds, dresser, closet, desk, etc. there is also a comfortable, huge living room, with a projector, to be able to watch movies and tv on a 100" screen. there's a dining room, and a modern kitchen, with good materials for cooking and fresh food from the co-op and farmer's market, and high-end coffee. there's a large deck in back, and a small screened in porch up front. the garden is flourishing in all directions, with fresh veggies and flowers. the house is in really good shape, and there's plenty of interesting books and art, high speed internet and a good sound system.

in addition, the garage has been converted into a studio living space. it is where i do all of my writing, and is increasingly where i do all of my sleeping, as well. so, you would still share the house with me, but would have privacy at night, in a home of your own.

now, a bit about me:

i'm studying history in graduate school, so my schedule is some mix of very busy and very free. i will be out of the house a good chunk of every day, and also home a lot reading, or working on the computer. i am a radical thinker, and i enjoy thoughtful conversations. i believe in communism, and in sharing what i have to the best of my ability.

as i travel often for research and conferences, i am looking for housemates who are responsible, who can keep the house clean and can deal with any issues that might arise while i'm away.

the details:

as there are currently two open bedrooms, a lot of different arrangements are possible. if the bedrooms are rented separately, i'm asking $550 per month, all utilities and internet included. and if you are a couple, for example, we could negotiate a way for you to utilize both bedrooms (maybe one as an office?) at a reduced rate.

i will keep the house warm in the winter, (and air conditioning and ceiling fans in all rooms in the summer) and i will share my food freely (i don't enjoy private shelves in fridges) and will not expect you to "pay your share" in either of these ways.

i prefer a year long commitment, but will potentially take semester long housemates.

i don't require a lease, but i do require a security deposit. and, i expect basic good communication, and 30 days notice before moving out, and will withhold your security deposit if you decide to move out sooner than our original agreement.

please get in touch if this sounds at all interesting to you.
