Pied-a-terre Mon-Fri ONLY! Quiet & furnished.

Ad ref# 100082014 Mon-Fri ONLY

WEEKDAY ACCOMMODATION FOR MATURE BUSINESSMAN:
Paying a fortune for hotels during the workweek? Here's a much better alternative!

We are offering a smallish (6.5 x 11.5 feet, with a 10 foot high ceiling) room, comfortably furnished with a 4-drawer double Captain's Bed, wardrobe with 2 drawers plus hanging space, chair and desk, in Northern Manhattan/Hudson Heights.

THE ROOM IS TO BE OCCUPIED BY ONE PERSON ONLY. THAT MEANS ABSOLUTELY NO COUPLES OCCUPYING THE ROOM!

Rent is $550 a month including all bills.

THIS IS INTENTIONALLY BELOW MARKET RENT DUE TO THE FACT THAT YOU WILL BE HOME WITH YOUR FAMILY IN YOUR PRIMARY RESIDENCE EVERY WEEKEND!

The room is 100% yours, you may leave all your belongings in it and we will NOT be renting it out by the hour when you? re away! We just need our privacy at weekends.

The apartment is in a prewar (early 1900s) building. It's a large high-ceilinged 4 bedroom with a huge living room, eat-in kitchen, and large bathroom. Reliable card laundry facilities (3 large washers, 4 dryers) are available in the basement.
Located in Hudson Heights, west of Broadway, one block from Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University Nursing School, and the A, C, and 1 subway lines, it's a 15-20 minute ride on the A Express to midtown. It's also very near lots of banks, shops, restaurants, 24-hour deli and Subway Sandwich next door, grocery stores and even a Starbucks- all of life's necessities within easy walking distance. And it's just a few subway stops or a short bus ride from Fort Tryon Park and the Cloisters Museum. We don't have a car, but on-street parking appears to be available. There are also quite a few nearby parking garages.

You'd be sharing with three people- us, a quiet, settled married couple (M/F) together for 15 years, who, although we're in the arts, don't have artistic temperaments, (which is why we're looking for a business type/medical/prof. etc) plus a university professor in his mid-60s, who is also out of town weekends.

Since we're a couple, we need Monday-to-Friday roommates, or "commuters" or "part-time tenants" so we can have some time to ourselves. We've been sharing for years, both individually and together, and through trial and error, have found what works for us.

Therefore, our ideal roommate would be a reliable, quiet, drama-free, employed professional, 45+, who will be away, that is, sleeping somewhere other than the apartment, on weekends, for the entire weekend- Friday night through Monday morning. All our past roommates have had to be in NYC for work, but had a house and family elsewhere, outside of daily commuting distance. Someone relatively tidy and clean but not obsessive about it is best. Absolutely NO smokers/substance abusers etc. please, and NO pets. It's a month-to month agreement, but we prefer long-term, i. e. at least 6 months.

The monthly rent includes all bills- gas, electric, domestic phone, internet, cable TV and cable box rental. 1st month's rent plus one month security deposit is required to move in, a total of $1100. A written rental agreement will protect both our interests.

Please email if you would like to see the room, and tell us a bit about yourself, including age, occupation, work schedule, family circumstances, and we'd appreciate your phone number, so we can communicate easily. We'll be interviewing people and showing the place starting this week.
The room's available January 1st officially, but the move-in date is flexible-anytime from now until early January could work. Hope to hear from you soon!
