 The Perfect Spot – available in November 2017 -- Quiet dead end street, in-town location. Walk to UMASS/Amherst College/downtown. The recently renovated 1840s farmhouse is loaded with natural light, gourmet kitchen, solar panels, Wi-Fi, porch and garden, fire pit with chairs and quiet spaces. The space The renovated farm house is light and airy. The available room is a small room, on the first floor, off of the kitchen with a queen size bed, drawers, a dresser, closet and next to a shared bath with a lovely shower and an outdoor shower, in warm months. The outdoor shower has a view of a meadow or the stars at night. This is the only bedroom on the first floor so it feels very private at night, even with shared bath. Washer and dryer and bath tub on second floor. The room has its own heat/cooling control.  This is an old home. And while it is fully renovated, it is dusty. I also have three cats so if you are allergic to cats or older homes, this is not the place for you. It will never be as clean as a new house. It has finished and painted wooden floors.  Parking spot available. Guest access The potential renter can enjoy kitchen, yard, porches, garden, TV room, bathtub, outdoor shower (except when removed in winter), washer and dryer, Wi-Fi and bicycles (2) upon request. I have Adirondack chairs in the garden that can be enjoyed for reading and relaxation. .  Interaction  I work full-time, in my home for a health care environmental stewardship not for profit organization.  I am on my computer and on the phone on the first floor. I am also a reiki practitioner and treat people in an upstairs room as a side interest and volunteer with hospice.  I have two children – both in college – one has an apartment in South Hadley and one is at Connecticut College and has a room in the home when she is on break.   Other things to note I am a quiet early to bed, early to rise person. If you are loud, allergic to cats or older homes, this is not the place for you.   I seek someone who is quiet, with little expectations for interaction and also early to bed, early to rise – or someone who doesn’t mind that I am and who is quiet at night.  Because the kitchen is outside of the room for rent, I want to make sure that breakfast preparation at an early hour is not a disturbance. I travel for work and for life and seek someone who can cover some activities when I am not here i.e. mowing lawn, putting out trash for pick up and feed the cats.  We can discuss those particulars and the rent --  Rent (negotiable) includes all utilities, Wi-Fi etc.. References required to make sure it’s the right fit. You can reach me at jannyhoward11@gmail.com The room is available November 6, 2017. (posted 6/21/17)
