Seeking housemate!

We’re looking for 1-2 roommates or another family to live with in our large 2-floor apartment on Bainbridge Street. We live on one floor, you would live on the other, and we’ll share the kitchen.

The place has 7 bedrooms total and two full baths, 3 big living spaces and a beautiful kitchen. Your floor has 5 of the bedrooms (which don’t have to all be used as bedrooms) and a big bathroom. We’ve thought about creating a small kitchenette in one of the upstairs bedrooms as well; and one of the rooms up there will be reserved for a shared guest room for visitors.

We have a small garden-in-progress (with room to expand), a yard, laundry and off-street parking. The first floor of the apartment houses a small home preschool, so there are little children around the yard during the day.

We are interested in living with others who value both communal spaces and experiences and separate/private spaces. We are a couple with a child (he’s 10), and we aren’t so interested in the isolated nuclear family model of cohabitation; some shared space and camaraderie is great. Kids warmly welcome! 

Possibilities include living with other parents with kids, or 1-2 non-parenting roommates, and/or offering some of the bedroom spaces to artists/writers/entrepreneurs for work space. We are open to explore creative uses of the space as long as it all contributes to something that can run reliably and efficiently, and feels cozy, creative and comfortable.

Who are we? 

We are Korben, an acupuncturist, and Amy, an artist/small business owner, and Julian, our 10-year old son who is crazy about sports, and Izzy, our mellow little cat. We are all out of the house most weekdays at work and school, home at night and weekends laughing a lot. We are community oriented, progressive, queer and GLBTQ friendly, and both parents actively do anti-oppression work as students and teachers. We keep shared spaces clean and tidy, though sometimes we are slow to get all the dishes done as we dirty them. Life!

The place is beautiful, in great shape, with wonderful owners (friends of ours). We’re looking for August 1 or 15th, or September 1.

RENT is $900 for the floor; you can pay part or all, depending on how we divvy up the space, or not! Utilities are included from April-October, and from October-March you’ll be expected to kick in some for heat.

Reach out if you have interest or ideas, and want to know more. Email Amy at awalsh09 (at) gmail (dot) com.

The main bedroom is what is pictured here; and there is also more room to the left, enough for a desk and chair and small parlor area. The images below are of another of the smaller bedrooms, and parts of the kitchen and bathroom.
