Rent is $1200.00/month PLUS a set monthly fee of $400.00 to cover: Gas, Electric, Water, Sewer, Trash, Recycling and Internet. Total due each month is: $1600. This is possibly the most beautiful apartment in Springfield...I may be biased, but still, it's awesome. ;) Located in the front of a charming(quirky), mostly renovated, 1859 house(tri-plex). Centrally located, about a mile from downtown, hospitals and Washington Park. Text/call to set up a time to come look at the space, pictures do not do it justice! This apartment is a work of art, my husband gave in to his artistic side in the finishing of this space. It is a perfect apartment for roommates. There are two master suites each located at opposite sides of the aprtment. The apartment has many built ins: corner cupboard, bookshelves, window seats, and a entertainment center - so it won't take much to furnish. This is the front, lower apartment in the triplex. We are just about done with a total 6 year long, gut renovation of the house/tri-plex - its been a tri-plex since the 1940's. We live upstairs. The overall renovation project is about 95% complete. This place is an opportunity to live in a truly unique home, on an acre lot in the middle of the Historic West side. We also own a duplex on the property and have great tenants there. When the weather cooperates the backyard is irresistible. We put in a giant vegetable garden every year. We have pear, peach, cherry and apple trees, as well as strawberries, raspberries and blackberries growing. We also have chickens and plenty of fresh eggs daily. Check out the Facebook page, 525 S. Douglas, to see what the project started out like and MORE pictures. While a year lease is preferred, we will consider shorter terms. Everything is done for you, all new stainless steel appliances, full sized washer/dryer in laundry room, ALL utilities are paid so you know your expenses every month. ILITIES INCLUDE: Gas, electric, water, trash, recycling, yard care and internet. No added expenses or maintenance expenses. Must love animals! We have two very friendly dogs and two cats who occasionally spend time outside...the large orange one thinks he owns the place. No more than 2 dogs in the unit and a maximum of 3 animals. Deposit is one months rent, $1600.00 Required to move in; First months rent + deposit = $3200.00
