Shared house close to good things

Ad ref# 102348651

Sixties woman seeking a roommate or two to join me in an Albany house very close to the Berkeley border, and easy walking and cycling distance to North Berkeley BART and other good things. I am a Berkeley grad, very progressive, interested in civil and housing rights, and in the maintenance of shared housing instead of the ever-escalating prices that are the product of housing speculation. I hope to create a community based on principles like these.

Depending on the evolution of the house, there should be some possibilities for at least shared staples. I’m not a neatnik and am not offended by books and papers being left about. The important thing is some agreement over what’s comfortable and what’s not.

Room #1: About 12x12, with hardwood flooring. Shares the better bathroom with Room #2.

Room #2: Minty green carpet and yellow-painted wall paneling. I estimate the ceiling as 9’ perhaps. I hope to upgrade it to hardwood and sheetrock within a year.

The living room and kitchen are more than twice the size of rooms #1 and #2, and I hope to equip both shared areas with ample tables for writing, study, or project space. You’ll share the better bathroom with one person. I prefer the use of Ethernet (faster, more secure, less interference) and would be happy to have roommates who prefer it as well. But Miele washer and dryer in the back bathroom. New heat pump heating system and heat pump dryer, new electric hot water heater. No more natural gas in the house. I can teach you how to use the grinder and espresso machine depending on what we work out.

About the house:

- FRAGRANCE FREE, no incense, smoking or vaping -- I am allergic and cannot have scents in the house. I provide good quality soaps, shampoos, detergents that I can tolerate.
- Sonic fiber installation
- Large backyard that may be getting a deck and new grill in the future
- Newly added entry-level pottery wheel for outdoor use
- Utilities included
- LGBTQ welcome
- Housing co-op experience welcome
- Readers, writers, artists, politically interested, social conscience welcome
