I’m an Amherst College employee looking for two housemates to share my beautiful Victorian house in Holyoke in the Oakdale/tree streets area. The rent for the available rooms is $500 per month inclusive of utilities. The bedrooms are not furnished. The September 1st move in date is negotiable for one of the rooms. There are stairs to get into the house and up to the bedrooms/bathroom. The bedroom has carpet and pets have lived in the house. Pets are negotiable. The first floor is all wood and has lots of beautiful details. There is a great pantry. There's a washer and dryer in the basement. The common spaces are furnished for the most part, but we could talk about furniture you might want to bring, and there is some storage space. There are 3 porches! There is a guest bedroom with a futon that serves as an additional shared living space and space for guests. There is generally plenty of on street parking, and parking in the driveway is possible with some communication with housemates. I am fairly quiet but do enjoy social time and like to have people over sometimes, but I often socialize out of the house and come home to relax. I'm happy with us all doing our own thing, and also happy to hang out sometimes and chat or play boardgames and such. I'm looking for housemates who are respectful, tidy, and queer friendly. I value sustainability and try to make careful use of resources. I would value housemates who would do the same. I don't use a lot of harsh chemicals, but the house is not a scent-free space. I enjoy bike riding, shape note singing, and play violin (not well, sorry!) on occasion. If this sounds good to you, please tell me more about yourself! You can find photos on my Craigslist ad. I can be reached at lauracclampitt@gmail.com or through the Craigslist email. https://westernmass.craigslist.org/roo/6214818744.html (posted 7/12/17)
