We are in search of a roommate for a room in our house in the York neighborhood. It’s an old funky house with lots of character, natural light, wood floors, and many plants. We like having a peaceful inviting space where all roommates feel they can hang out in. We love hosting soup and game nights, craft nights, jam sessions, and hang outs with our friends. We enjoy being able to host friends when they are coming through town and we host about 3-5 people for a weekend every few months for the contact improv jam. There will be kombucha, sourdough, ginger beer, and sauerkraut making. We love to play music (funky jazz psych rock folk vibes) and jam with our friends so being able to be around music is key.

Our ideal roommate is…

- Tidy and keeps the common spaces clean
- Good at using nonviolent communication and being upfront when issues arise
- Fine with music playing through the speakers and jamming on the instruments and occasionally having people over to play music together
- Environmentally conscious (not wasting food, taking super long showers, using tons of paper towels, etc.)
- Fine with occasionally hosting people and having folks over for dinners and people poppin by to say hi
- Respects the communal items (kitchen gadgets and gizmos and such) and always rings out the sponge so we don’t get that stanky sponge hand
- is okay with wearing multiple sweaters in the winter- the house is pretty chilly in the winter time since the heating doesn’t work super well and we like to not have to pay tons for utilities

Rent is $570 for the downstairs room and $600 to $630 for the upstairs a month plus utilities (split 5 ways) and $500 security deposit (refundable minus $60 cleaning fee that is also refundable if we clean well enough). It’s a 4 bed 2 bathroom home. Move in starting August 1st.

Sorry no cats, landlord won’t have em :(

If you think you’d be a good fit please message with some info about yourself!
