A unique rental opportunity for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath cool and quirky mid century modern home. We are looking for the right people to rent our fully furnished home on a quiet street in River Heights. Beautiful yard and views of the Wellsvilles. Rental contract from March 1 to November 31 (if you are responsible students we could extend to the end of fall semester, mid-december). We are pricing this below market value to get the right people in. This house is a unique 1960s mid century modern home. As you might have noticed in the photos, we are trying to keep the mid-century vibe so have left in the blue shag carpet in the living room, the pink and yellow tiled bathrooms, color schemes, etc. A new gas range/electric convection oven and dishwasher are a couple upgrades we have installed in the kitchen. The bedrooms are not large by modern standards (one master 11x13 with adjacent bathroom and one 11x13), we use the other bedroom as a den (10x10). The guest bathroom in the hall has a shower/tub combo with sink and toilet. There is an upstairs living room with a non-functional gas fireplace (non-functional in the sense it does not conduct heat) and a basement living room with a gas fireplace insert. We are using a couple rooms in the basement for storage. The upstairs living room has a wall of windows facing the south and north so sitting there you feel like you are outside. There is great light upstairs and actually downstairs as well as the architect built-in glass blocks that allow an amazing amount of light in. There is a nice patio in the back and we have been slowly replacing grass with native plants. We do expect the tenant to take care of the garden and water the plants and small patches of lawn. We have garden tools, and an electric lawn mower and snow blower. The house was built in the 60s and does not have AC. We have a large portable swamp cooler that we bring up in the living room in the late summer when it gets hot to cool off the living room and fans for the bedrooms. We also open windows in the evening and close them in the day to help cool the house. As we said, the house is quirky and needs some attention. At the price we are asking, we expect the tenant to also be the property manager and deal with minor problems (e.g. the shower drain getting plugged – we have a snake for that). Of course, if there is a major issue we will pay for it but we expect you to arrange the plumber, electrician, etc. If you are not handy around the house, this may not be for you. Rent is 1500.00 a month + 800.00 deposit. We will ask you to sign a lease for the entire March to end of November time period. Utilities: water, sewage, garbage, etc are 105.00 a month. Electricity is 10.00 a month which is included in the rent as we have solar panels. If the bill goes over 10.00, you will be responsible for the extra amount (we have never had this happen as the solar panels generate enough power- you may have to clear snow from them when it snows if you want free electricity). Gas varies from 30.00 a month in the summer to 180.00 in the coldest months of the winter (one of us works at home so it is running all day). We have electric oil heaters we use in the winter to warm bedrooms at night- they work really well! We can keep our internet service provider if you like for an extra 90.00 a month. There is no satellite dish and we do not want one installed- this is non-negotiable. When you message, be sure to include my name in the response so I know you are real.
