it's security- it's a home that deliberately goes out of its way to provide sweet furnishings so you feel good- happy and calm inside the house.

We are semi-retired and retired gardeners.
We are the owners, reside and share the 3-floor walk-up with professional/student roommates who reside with us off and for many years. We truly are an Americana homestay! LOL

It's a house that welcomes you back home every day starting from the steps that lead you to the front door.

It's a garden 1st.
House is eclectic.
We decorate seasonally with natural elements.
We recycle - and conserve energy.

Your family and friends are welcomed for visiting.
Our roommates are professionals and students from ages 23 to 72, including couples.

Our long term roommates are living their life here, working from home, and enjoying the community and its amenities.

It's a diverse group and we all reside in our rooms and organically see each other in the shared spaces, coming and going, and on holidays.
There is plenty of privacy. There are days we don't see each other

Everyone residing here is because they want to -- and when they are ready to move on, they do as we encourage our roommates to grow within. However, we also enjoy living with long-term roomies too.

Morning coffee is made always and left in the 1st-floor kitchen for anyone to have. Everyone is responsible for their own meals- can cook in an equipped kitchen. Sometimes roommates share food with others and I also share when I make too much.
As owners of the house, we do upkeep the home and fix things as they break. We keep the bathrooms with paper.
Bathrooms get cleaned, floors get mopped every week.

However, we are not dust -free and like any urban NYC home, we handle things as they arise. Rooms are medium or small --

Commuting to Manhattan is super easy--- walk 3 min to the D train!
It's 35-55 min to Manhattan depending on your destination.
The 4 train is an 8 min walk with the same distance.

Our community is sweet-- lots of small business--all within walking distance to the gym- grocery stores, bakery, shoe repair, clothing, post office, pharmacy, schools, doc offices -

Surrounded by green parkland/parkway- flowers- many trees and lots of community activism. Mosholu Parkway is great for power walking, strolling, reading on a bench.
We are community strong. Peaceful area with pockets of culture that can be seen and heard during the weekends and holidays in this urban mixed community! LOL

Pets are case by case.

We ask that when you do message us, to please tell us about yourself- your story- your circumstance- your work, your commute, your school, your plan here on your new chapter, and what is it about this home that you reached out to as a new roomie.

Note: This is NOT an SRO - this is a roommate opportunity in a family home. There are no inside /indoor locked doors. We close our bedroom door for individual privacy.
