Let me add that some more advantages. The house is light on utility cost (it averaged $110/month last year). The windows and door have a good seal and I have a solar fan rigged up in the attic so that when the sun is intense and heats the roof, the fan kicks on and blows the hot air out preserving the A/C. The Baxter Cottage has a little private garden for BBQs and for those with a green thumb, a chance to garden. Many wild roses have sprung up. Easily accessible and ample parking is available just 7 feet from the front door so, with a awning over the entrance, one can get in without getting wet on a rainy day. All the amenities are there and since the remodeling is recent the appliances are all relatively new. The Cottage is less than 2 blocks from campus and about 4 very short blocks to campus town.
The shower is one molded piece eliminating mold in grout issues and other maintenance issues. There are three paddle fans to keep the place cool and air flowing. Closet space is good and the presence of a free washer/dryer also eliminates inconvenience.
Two more things. First, this is a stand alone house so that you have no common walls with anyone. This means you can concentrate on your studies when you need to at whatever hour you need to without being disturbed and when you want to relax and turn on the stereo, you don't have to worry about disturbing others. Lastly, I am the owner and landlord. When you have a service request, it goes directly to me and I respond. No buffers or middlemen to deal with which means more responsive service and a continuity in dealing with an issue over time.
I hope this will convince you to take a closer look. Feel free to call me to arrange a showing at 352 275 1259.
