Room in Townhouse Available in Silver Spring (next to metro!)

Recommended Posts

Guest Amanda Stevens

Hello all potential roommates! We have a room opening up in our Silver Spring townhouse in early July (start date is flexible). Our attached townhouse is in a great location - just yards from the DC border on the MD side, so all the perks of living near the district BUT you still get national representatives. We're located about a 5 minute walk to the Silver Spring metro station on the Red Line, 5 minutes to the nearest grocery store, 10-15 minutes from downtown Silver Spring. There are also plenty of bus stops around the block to get you anywhere you want to go.


House details: The available room is 10 ft by 13 ft on the second floor with two windows, one of which overlooks the courtyard with container garden. The bathroom is shared with 2 female roommates on the 2nd floor (the 4th is in the basement). For the most part the house is fully furnished except the available bedroom but we can always work to accommodate items. Parking is available as well as access to a small but well maintained exercise room at the complex.


Roommate details: We are an eclectic group of all female roommates. Among the three of us, we have pretty much one of everything: a cook, a gardener, a swing dancer a video gamer, an astronomer, an Middle Eastern studier, a couple of environmentalists, a couple world travelers, many different political opinions, 3 recent (ish) graduate, 3 workaholics and 3 weekend bar hoppers. We are pretty varied in messiness but none of us are dirty. Clothes/shoes, paperwork, and sometimes dishes can pile up during busy work weeks but it's usually tidied up over the weekend. Other than that, we're not too picky about what we are looking for...someone responsible (can pay bills on time) and able to stand a dirty dish in the sink for longer than an hour (but not more than 8 :-) ), can pick up after themselves and is planning to be in the area for at least a year (duration of the lease).


Cat Alert: One of the roommates has a cat which does roam around the house so you must be at least cat tolerant. Unfortunately the cat is rather alpha and we are not able to consider the addition of another cat or dog (small animals like hamsters welcome at your own risk... existing roommates are not responsible for any trauma resulting from the constant sensation of being hunted... :-)


Ideally, we would like someone who can submit an application at our complex as soon as possible.


Break down of individual bills/month:

Rent: ~ $520

Comcast: ~ $20

Electric: ~$20

Water and Gas: ~$20

Renters Insurance: $3


Total ~$585


If you think you are interested in our humble abode, please email me back through Craigslist with a little about yourself and we'll go from there! Pictures available on request
