Looking for responsible, mature, respectful person as a housemate to occupy a very large bedroom with a walk in closet, in a beautiful old historic home near VanderVeer Park.

This is a NON-SMOKING household, no pets, or unofficial roomies (such as a bestfriend/boyfriend/girlfriend who you want to have over constantly). The home has other roommates who get along well and are all very quiet and respectful of each other, and we'd like to keep it that way.

The bedroom is very large, second floor, with big windows, hardwood floor, walk-in closet, and nicely appointed with partial furnishing. there is a small wardrobe, and a twin bed (not pictured), and other small furnishings available if needed. The house is large and well kept, with off street parking and a nice yard.

This is a perfect space for a grad student who needs space and calm to study, but is also perfect for someone who commutes for work or school and needs a peaceful home away from home, or someone who is busy with work most of the time and needs a tranquil space to get much needed rest. We have also had exchange students stay who appreciated the fact all furnishings and housewares/appliances are available for use. The kitchen has all appliances, dishes, utensils, pots and pans, there is also a very nice (new model) washer and dryer and ironing space for tenant use. NOT coin operated, but included. And the living room is furnished with a large flat screen TV, also for house use. Basically, all you need are your clothes/bedding/laptop/etc and you can stay comfortably.

The other roommates are younger, working adults, no children/pets, or loud partying... just good energy/personalities. The monthly rent is $450, with a $500 deposit to move in, and utilities are split between roommates (pretty consistently $50 a month, except the very coldest, high gas usage winter months). Internet is available by chipping in with cost with the roommate who has signed up for the account, and monthly cleaning service of the common areas (bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, etc..) is INCLUDED, no additional cost. Each roommate is expected to clean up after themselves, but this cleaning is for the deeper housework, not to do your dishes, sorry haha.

As you can see by the photos, this is a really great space, and the location (across from the park) puts you right in the center of Davenport, so you are on roads that are plowed first, and close to public trans options, including the bike path.

For students from out of town, the home is about a 5-10 min walk from St. Ambrose University, and 10-15 minute walk to Palmer Chiropractic School. If you bike or drive, it's literally just a couple minutes away. Also, it's a straight shot down Harrison, so you are about a 5 min drive to downtown Davenport, or the bridges to get into Rock Island. GREAT LOCATION, nice neighborhood/area.

Parking is fairly limited, so if you have a gigantic truck or other very large vehicle, this location will not work. it's a closed drive, so large trucks are too big a hassle for parking here.

This is a month to month lease, no long lease required, however, we do give/expect a 30 day notice before moving at the very least. Longer term stays preferred, please no one-semester students or few month temporary stay people, it's too much of a hassle and inconvenience to the other tenants to have
too many people always coming in and out...

GREAT PLACE! Don't let it get away, I'm very picky about who moves in and keep a very nice home, so once the rooms fill up, they stay occupied for quite some time typically.

Please email with further questions or to talk about possibly seeing the home. Thanks!
