It is wonderful to sit outside watching the trees and listening to the gentle rain on the roof. So peaceful. Click into the listing for contact information, pictures and details!VERY VERY CLEAN!!!!VERY VERY LOW UTILITIES!We just rebuilt the decking to be amazingly nice for any home, and even more amazing for rental property. . . Brazilian hardwood decking, custom made railings, covered porches to keep you dry in the rain, etc. So wonderful to relax on these decks/porches with clear views of nothing but trees, wildlife, sunsets, and stars. The top floor balcony just outside your door stayed dry even during a major downpour. Wow!Also, we are added A LOT of additional insulation and energy efficient roofing; so your already very low electric bills will decrease even more!Wonderful view!In the winter you will feel as if you can touch the stars!Our forest full of trees drop their leaves and the bare branches twinkle in the starlight. During snow-covered times it is even more beautiful to reside here. However, there is lawn to enjoy as well.Yet, the security lighting comes on as people (and deer) walk around so you can see clearly to move safely.Typical of the units we offer, 1849 D is a very nice, comfortable, efficiently laid out apartment for those looking for a quiet, well-maintained place to live where the landlord tries hard to make sure the residents are content. 1849 D is bright and cheery with great views over the top of Blacksburg and of the wildlife in the woods behind. No need to close the blinds in this unit-- just enjoy the views. The sunsets can be spectacular! The new kitchen exhaust system will soon have a silencer and variable speed control; so you can keep cooking odors and grease from becoming a cleaning chore.AVAILABILITY: Our units (all in quiet areas and maintained by landlords who really care) open up randomly throughout the year as we assist our residents by posting their units as soon as they let us know they are moving and will no longer need the residence. The majority of our residents renew year after year and move only when they no longer need a rental residence in the Blacksburg area. Few people move on the date listed on their lease. So, we start listing a unit as available shortly after our residents tell us they will have it clean and ready for the next occupant. Residents move at all times of the year to follow employment, because they closed on a purchase of a home, because they graduated in December, or for many other reasons; so we try to assist them in saving money on rent on a unit they no longer need by writing a new lease, if a new resident is found. So please check the availability date because we try hard to keep them updated.Kitchen + Living Room + Bath + Master Bedroom + another bedroom/study Unique flexible closets near kitchen.IMPORTANT NOTE: Maximum of two residents permitted by code.Floor plans for all our units and more photos - many during the renovations -- are on our website. We are not allowed to list our website or direct contact information here; so please reply to this posting to reach us.There are Excellent options to reduce costs of heating and cooling. FOUR (reversible) ceiling fans (with lights), wall heaters, storm windows and storm door with screen. PLUS: zone climate control possible as there are individual heaters with blowers in each room AND the walls of each room are insulated for very efficient zone heating options. Great views from ALL windows. We provide mini-blinds but you probably will not want to close them. It would be very hard for anyone to see in since you look down a hill and over the top of Blacksburg clear over to the mountains! Just installed were three new double hung, insulated windows with low-E glass and full screen for great energy efficient ventilation. The others have storm windows and screens. We provide a double fan window fan. You may install a window AC unit, but, with the energy saving features (including a forest full of trees for shade) no one has bothered with AC units for years. Even when they added them, they very rarely turned them on. We added increased insulation overhead, several new low-E, argon filled, double paned windows double-hung with full sized screens, and an energy efficient, reflective metal roof; so the ceiling fans in all rooms should do an even better job of keeping you comfortable all year long by circulating the air efficiently.Top floor unit. You will be living across the street from the large to very, very large homes in the Stroubles Mill portion of Hethwood subdivision. While only a 10-15 minute walk from Foxridge; you will be enjoying a tranquil, country setting and very easy parking. Convenient to VT, Blacksburg, and, also, Radford and Christiansburg. Usually quicker to come home and park than if live in Hethwood because there is no traffic, stop signs nor need to hunt for a parking space! Only 15-20 minutes by bike path to the middle of VT campus. 15 min to NRV Mall and Wal-Mart. 5 minutes to the supermarket. 8 minutes to hospital.BT bus a few blocks walk. EZ bike ride via the bike trail to Kipps Elementary, the Blacksburg Middle School and Blacksburg High School. The school bus takes elementary children to Prices Fork Elementary School. To find: Take Prices Fork Road. Go one block from Food Lion and the Fire Station. Just past Kipps Elementary, the Blacksburg Middle School, and Blacksburg High School, turn Left onto Merrimac Road. Cox's miniature golf, driving range and batting cages are on the opposite corner. It is 1.3 miles to the back of Hethwood subdivision and the foot of our driveway for 1849 and 1855 Merrimac Road. On website there is a map and, even, aerial photos of Blacksburg showing the location of our rental properties. Large Ceiling fans in all rooms. CAT-5 and TV Cable to all rooms. High speed cable available. New wiring, new plumbing. Wired in smoke detectors. Thick firewalls. Extensive renovations done with close involvement by building inspectors. Carpeting is thoroughly, professionally cleaned between tenants. Stain protection (eg Scotchguard) is applied; so it will be easy to keep the carpeting looking nice. To us ease of cleaning is an essential part of maintaining our residences! Stain protection is a way we try to help you to get your security deposit back.DishwasherMicrowaveStoveRefrigeratorUndercabinet lightingLights in the closets.Doorbell, deadbolts and security lighting. (However, if you forget to lock your door, it is highly unlikely you need to worry as this is a nice neighborhood.)Full-length mirrors in each bedroom, plus large mirror in the kitchen. The amount of built-in kitchen storage will surprise you. For this size unit, there is much Flexible closet space. Also, there is plenty of space for you to put in your own wardrobe or bureaus.Store your bicycles safely out of the weather under the porch. Do you have a canoe? If so, there is plenty of room to store it, too!Please come see how many nice amenities we have put in Forests Edge. County Water included. Low heating bills because zoned heat and all walls insulated (between rooms as well as between units).Sound proofed between rooms inside unit, as well as, between units. Extremely rare to hear neighbors (or their TV) at all! Close the door to your bedroom and go to sleep while someone else is watching TV or talking even within the unit.This is definitely Not a place for noisy weekly parties.Nice balcony/covered porch where you can sip your morning coffee or relax in the evenings looking at the stars or stay dry while enjoying a summer rain.There is a place set aside for your barbecue grill Non-smokers only.There is No smoking in the building or on porches; so you can enjoy fresh air from the square miles of open fields and woods just off the balcony or Keep your windows open to enjoy the woodland smells and sounds. There's much wildlife to watch. Deer, rabbits, etc. love to graze through our flowers and shrubs. Bird lovers, please check out this location! Explore the woods outside your door; yet, be across the street from the largest established subdivision in Blacksburg. It's the Best of both worlds -- rural and cosmopolitan university town! Birds hovering around bird feeders have been the loudest critters on the premises!Since we do not permit any uncaged, noisy, or "outdoor" pets, this means there are no pets from our residences running loose to discourage or kill wildlife nor to leave excrement on the lawns nor to surprise you on the stairs. Our residents really enjoy Nature from the balconies, through their windows and when on walks around the grounds.”We gutted much of the buildings repairing things with quality materials in a way so they should continue to appear recently renovated and put in much soundproofing to dampen normal sounds of human occupancy. No worries that a previous resident's cat or dog left surprise smells behind since no uncaged pets have been permitted since extensive renovations. No dogs allowed; so no barking coming from the next unit and no yellow spots or other "surprises" on the lawns from residents' pets.Most quiet, well-cared for caged, exotic pets are welcome.A policy of no uncaged (so no urine smells in the carpeting or scratches on walls, doors or cabinets) or noisy pets (examples: loud parrots or barking dogs) helps us to maintain the tranquility and cleanliness of our units. No critters are permitted who are even capable of being heard outside the unit even with the windows open. All residents in 1849/1855 sign the same lease; so it should remain quiet.Allergy sufferers: Since no smoking or uncaged pets since renovations, this has eliminated many common allergens!We want residents to be happy and to renew year after year; so we try hard to keep our promise of trying hard to provide a nice place to live undisturbed by neighbors' noise.There are lawns and woods to enjoy. If you like to garden, let us know! We are still working on them and enjoy the help. We have done much work on the landscaping but it is a work in progress. It is fun to watch the spread of flowers some residents planted and to notice how a newlywed couple's first Christmas tree (a dwarf Alberta spruce) is looking so happy many years after it first arrived at Forests Edge.Forests-Edge is like a small neighborhood. Only a maximum of 8 residents in the entire four-unit building and 4 residents in the house on the same 2.5 acres of lawns and mainly oak forest. Landlord tries hard to make residents comfortable. Most of our residents renew year after year.Much off-street parking for you and your visitors.Optional: Less-than-cost monthly fee for use of very, very clean laundry room on-site with like new front-loading washer and dryer. No coins needed. We sometimes have visiting professors and others who take their laundry "home" on the weekends, and feel it is unfair they should have to pay for use of the laundry; so we have made it an optional cost.Optional: Comcast serves this area. There are Hard-wired jacks for Internet (CAT-5), telephone and TV to LR and both bedrooms. Computer programmers have renewed year-after-year; so we know the Internet service must be good.Please look at our website to see more images of the unit. Click on the picture of the white building to get to photos and floor plans. All the photos will give you an idea about the premises. Specific photos of each unit say the unit's name in the caption. This unit is 1849 D Merrimac Road, Blacksburg, VA.Multi-year leases: There is a savings if you sign a multi-year lease because the rent will be locked-in. Please ask about the flexibility this landlord builds into the lease to change the ending date to save residents money. For example, we list units as available as soon as residents tell us when they plan to move out. The earlier people let us know before they plan to vacate the unit, the more likely we will be able to find someone else interested in moving in. Generally we save people much rent money because we are usually able to find someone to sign a lease to move in close to the time the vacating tenants would like to vacate the unit.Due to the economy causing people to switch jobs or otherwise suddenly change plans, units may suddenly come available at any time. All have different floor plans, 2-3 BR units or even our 3-4 bedroom home. Please ask about them as well. Routinely we assist people to find someone to start the next lease early when people graduate or change jobs in May or December. Recently there have been some situations with people suddenly needing to relocate at unusual times. Fortunately, they have rented with us because we are willing to work with them to minimize the costs of changing rental plans!Please contact us by clicking into the listing for our phone number and use "reply to this ad" button for email contact.Forests-Edge is a really nice place to live. Please do check it out. All our units are in quiet locations, are well-maintained and have lots of parking.Thanks for looking! We hope to hear from you to schedule a tour. We try hard to give our residents at least 24 hours notice before a tour. When a unit is vacant, we can be very flexible on timing for tours.Our builders are with Shelter Alternatives and they do not build "contractors' grade" or "rental grade" projects. Our units are definitely not typical of "rental" properties. They are built the way we would want them to be if we moved into the units. In fact, as soon as we recover from the costs of all the renovations for our residents, we plan to do projects at our own home using the same contractors.We hope to hear from you very soon!0895001849 D Merrimac Road near Prices Fork RoadBlacksburgVA2406012010-06-21 18:05:432018-03-16 19:52:06apartment21.00895002019-08-01available00010.00000000000000000.0000000000000000none41614subscription2019-02-27 13:29:050/va/blacksburg/41614-quiet-2br-bright-clean-view-new-hardwood-deck/images/25/30/25309599_640x480.jpg/images/17/91/179181_640x480.jpg/images/17/91/179180_640x480.jpg/images/17/91/179182_640x480.jpg/images/17/91/179184_640x480.jpg/images/17/91/179185_640x480.jpg/images/18/14/181403_640x480.jpg/images/24/09/24092498_640x480.jpg/images/24/09/24092499_640x480.jpg/images/24/09/24092500_640x480.jpg/images/24/09/24092502_640x480.jpg/images/25/40/25407730_640x480.jpg/images/25/30/25309599_640x480.jpglands1973648377970Quiet - Great Eat In Kitchen-Woods, bike pathAddress: 1849 B Merrimac Road near Prices Fork Road.

It is such a peaceful, quiet setting.Availability: August, 2018. Please let us know your needs, as occasionally due to life changes --- new job, marriage, early graduation, people decide to request to move out early. Please ask if any of our units have similar unexpected openings. Click into the listing for contact information, pictures and details.This apartment is in a wonderful location. We have lots of pictures and the floor plans posted on our website.Real Oak floors! Large eat-in kitchen with lots of counterspace. Stove, dishwasher, exhaust fan, microwave and refrigerator (It is large!). Two walk-in closets (one is very large, the other is huge) with flexible shelves and rods. Plus there is a coat closet/pantry in the kitchen. Could be used for a desk, play area, or nursery, they are so big! All hardwood floors or nice vinyl. Living Room, kitchen, large master bedroom + second bedroom.Hardwired Ethernet/TV/Telephone to all rooms, including kitchen.Comcast broadband cable runs to a router; so not charged for each connection separately!Our 2.5 acre property has lots of parking for you, your neighbors and everyone's visitors! There is a small house. The four unit apartment building has two units per floor on the upper two floors with a laundry room and landlord’s storage on the bottom floor. 1849 B has views from all rooms looking West with trees to the back, one small house next door, and lawns and view over Stroubles Mill neighborhood to the front.All the walls in the building were opened during renovation so all plumbing and electrical is in very good to excellent (brand-new) condition. All renovations have been done with permits and government inspectors. We worked hard to make all our units as if our own children will be living in them.The sound proofing is amazing, between units and within the unit as well. Close your bedroom door and you do not even hear the TV in your own apartment! It is very rare to hear a neighbor or even your roommate. The views are of trees, lawns and mountains. Rarely will you hear a car door slam. More likely you will be awakened by the wildlife in the acres of woods.Inside the unit there are ceiling fans in every room (plus two in the kitchen - it is that big!) and zone heating; so the electric bills can be kept incredibly low with little effort. There are many pluses to this building and you likely will find it worth taking a look. Please call or e-mail for an appointment. We only own 9 rental units and manage them ourselves. You will not be a "number" to us. Our residents frequently renew because they like how well we maintain our units and how quickly we respond when they contact us.We try hard to make our residences nice enough that our residents renew, and most do. Some stay with us for all the years they are renting in Blacksburg!We love animals, but in our rental units they must be in cages or aquaria and be quiet so they do not disturb others or damage the apartment. No outdoor pets as we encourage wildlife and our residents enjoy watching the deer, rabbits, songbirds, etc. from their windows and covered porches.No Smoking & no uncaged pets: As with all our units, this unit is maintained pet and smoke allergen free since renovation. This also helps us to keep our units looking as if they were recently renovated. There should be no residual pet odors to surprise you when you close the windows in the winter and turn on the heat. We do allow most quiet caged pets as long as they are well cared for. No uncaged pets and no outdoor pets. To keep our promise to the neighbors: No permitted pet in any of our units can be capable of making noise that could be heard outside the unit even with the windows open, except song birds which, of course, sound similar to birds outside in the trees and feeding at the neighbors' bird feeders. We maintain a list of the types of caged critters that have resided in our units so we can inform people with allergies of when the critters lived there. Over the years we have been offering rental property, residents in our various units have had fish, anuls, a canary and a hamster...This is a non-smoking building. Also, there is no smoking on the balconies or near the building where the smoke can enter through open windows. Since we own the building, we are able to offer smoke free air when you relax on the large balconies watching the deer and birds or enjoying the night sky. The building is located at the edge of Hethwood and behind it is nothing but hills and farms. It gets spectacularly dark when the motion-sensor security lights are not tripped on. The stars and the moon seem to be much closer here than in the rest of Blacksburg because they appear so bright!The bike path to VT and the rest of Blacksburg is right across the street. Radford and Christiansburg (as well as Blacksburg) are very easy to access from this location. The hospital is just down the road.Please do check Forests Edge website for a map. The small apartment building is easy to find by taking Prices Fork Road and turning onto Merrimac Road. Enjoy the expansive view over the beautiful Wall Farm, rather than dealing with traffic, stop signs and lights as your friends do when they go home. It is only one and a third miles to the three story white building. You can pull right into the large, usually mostly empty parking area. It is actually quicker to get here than to most places that seem "closer" to campus. (Try it!) Plus it is soooooo nice and peacefully quiet. It's pretty quick (15-20 min) by bicycle (bike path) to most of VT and Blacksburg.The large homes on Tall Oaks Drive are right across the street (the back of Hethwood). Blacksburg Transit bus stop is a few blocks up Tall Oaks Drive. PLEASE ASK WHETHER WE HAVE ANYTHING ELSE AVAILABLE. ALL OF OUR UNITS ARE VERY QUIET & HAVE LOTS OF PARKING!1849 B can have up to two residents due to the zoning regulations. Only a maximum of 12 people may reside on the 2.5 acres. 2 in each of the four apartments in 1849 and 4 in the house (1855 Merrimac Road) across the driveway.The laundry room with nice front-loading washer and dryer.

The detailed description is definitely appreciated by people at a distance who may have to make a decision without getting to spend much time in the home or even being able to come to Blacksburg to do a tour at all. We tried hard to answer most questions that people ask; so please try to read through the description.We tried to include line breaks for ease of reading, but the website keeps removing them.This home is very nice, very comfortable, homey, clean and bright. No residual pet smells will bother occupants when heat turned on in winter, since pet allergen free since major renovations.It is unique, unlike so many places that look just like every other place. Here you will immediately realize that the nooks, crannies, closet, and history make this house special and make it a home, not "just a rental." When gutted recently for total renovation, we insisted the charm and personality be maintained so it feels like a home, not a bunch of square boxy rooms.There is much included to save you time and money; so please remember to factor these in as you do your price comparisons. We do the mowing, leaf removal and snow plowing of the driveway. It is on County water, but there is no water or sewer bill. The ground floor, especially, stays cool in the summer without the need for AC! The large trees provide plenty of shade.Insulation in walls between rooms and floors helps to zone the heat and coolness as well as helps keep the house quiet between rooms and floors.Very efficient use is made of space! If there is a nook, there is a shelf or closet.Most shelving is adjustable.There are lots of flexible closets.No wasted square footage in hallways.The house is a lot "bigger" than it appears from outside.Within the walls is everything from CAT-5 Ethernet/TV/phone cabling to all rooms, to all new wiring, all new plumbing, all new heating ducts, and lots of insulation and soundproofing (even between rooms and floors)!Much soundproofing:It is tough to hear a TV or computer from one room to another. Parents please note that the soundproofing muffles the sounds of a toddler's temper tantrum as well as a teenager's music. Wired in smoke detectors. Plus a carbon-monoxide alarm. Much outdoor lighting on motion sensors; so it is possible to enjoy the beauty of the stars when no one is walking around outside. Neighbors are quiet (Sometimes, however, the wild birds in the woods do get pretty rowdy). You can plant stuff in the gardens, but be prepared for the deer to eat it. There is a fenced garden plot, if you want to try your luck.The house shares a driveway with a 4 unit building where we have very quiet residents who generally reside there for years. The residents of the home (1855) and the small apartment building (1849 Merrimac Rd) all sign rental documents agreeing to the same things which has ensured that the house and apartments are occupied by like-minded people who are respectful of each other. Most of our residents serious students or professionals who prefer a very quiet neighborhood with only rare visitors so they can just sit outside or leave their windows wide open and soak in the sounds of Nature.If you are looking to live in a convenient, quiet, peaceful neighborhood, surrounded by Nature, then you will likely enjoy living here.If you are looking for a place to party, please do not consider renting this home. We try to rent only to people with a good record of having taken good care of previous residences and who are respectful of the neighbors.Beautiful location: Located on 2.5 acres, shared only with a maximum of 8 other residents in a similarly maintained and quiet 4-unit apartment building next door. This year there are only 5 people next door.You'll be living across the street from the end of Tall Oaks Drive/Stroubles Mill, Hethwood in Blacksburg. There reside Thousands of people whom you can meet around town, on campus, when on walks, running or biking, at the nearby supermarket, but, you, will be one of the lucky ones who has a private quiet home to which to return.Bike/walking path to Kipps Elementary, Blacksburg Middle School, Blacksburg High School, grocery store, VT, Corporate Research Center, and VCOM. Hospital is just 5-8 minutes down the road. 11 minute drive to CRC/VCOM. 16 minutes to the shopping mall (WalMart, other big box chain stores and restaurants and numerous smaller shops). Grocery store is 5 minutes by car or bicycle.All this plus beautiful rural Virginia Countryside just outside your back door! Square Miles of woods and fields behind.Mountain sunsets daily! People renew year after year at Forests Edge because the properties are well-maintained, very quiet and there is ample parking.Pictures and maps on our website: Please contact us for the website, since we are not allowed to list it here. (Hint: The house is located at what we call Forests Edge which can be Googled.) It is faster to get home here than in much of Blacksburg because there's little traffic and no stop signs! EZ to: Blacksburg, Radford, Christiansburg, The Malls. Corporate Research Center, Hospital, VCOM, etc. Avoid most VT traffic to I-81 and Mall.Walking/running/bike path across street (Hethwood)...goes right to VT campus. (If you bike quickly only 15-20 minutes door to your door on campus.)Great off-street parking! Good to know that Snow plowing of parking area is included in rent, even though this is a house!Para-transit will come to the door.3-4 blocks to BT bus. Original real oak floors, real wood paneling, all original solid wood interior doors, nooks and crannies, etc. have been kept.Plaster walls are beautiful. The upstairs full-bath was added during renovation. Downstairs bath was modified to be universally accessible without looking like it is.Incredible storage and wall heaters in both bathrooms! Large Ceiling fans (with lights) are in every room. Double-paned, low-E windows have full screens, not just 1/2 screens; so it's possible to ventilate rooms well even when raining. 3 bedrooms have flexible closets. 4th BR has no closet; yet pocket door makes it a convenient extension of other bedroom on main level. There is plenty of storage in the hall + bath next door to 4th bedroom. 4th bedroom makes a terrific office, playroom, hobby room, or den, especially since it has an additional heater to zone heat that room.The 2 large bedrooms upstairs have great views through over-sized windows. One faces East, the other West. Great views of the sunrise and sunset over the mountains. Stars at night are magnificent when the motion sensor lights are off. Faux wood blinds are on every window. The blinds really block the light, if you choose to hide from the great view of the morning sunrise. The comfortably-sized EAT-IN KITCHEN even has a closet under the steps with a light so you can sort through your over-sized pots, bowls, wedding gifts, etc. (or a child could play in this "secret" hide-away). Recent Stove with convection oven with hidden bottom element for ease of cleaning between running the self-cleaning feature, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, ample cabinets and counterspace, windows on two walls facing woods and fields, plus exhaust fan in kitchen.Lots of built-in and/or flexible shelving/storage throughout the house.County Water & septic included. Well for watering gardens.INCLUDED: Mowing and leaf removal is done for you so you can lounge outside and enjoy the peace and quiet rather than pushing the mower. Snow plowing of the driveway is done for you, too; so sled on the hill after shoveling the snow off the level back path. The back path will be ice free if you turn on the heater embedded in the aggregate stone path.INCLUDED: Use of very convenient (really!) laundry (no coins!) Most people do not think about how much it costs to heat water for laundry and to run a dryer. Likely you will save around $100 per month in laundry costs. Also, the heat and humidity from the dryer as well as the dryer lint will not be in your home! Really nice large-capacity Bosch front-loader washer and a Whirlpool dryer in the very, clean convenient laundry area. The front loader is so efficient, the dryer and washer finish in about the same time. Shelves provided to store your detergent. The laundry center does not use precious square footage in the home. There is even a clothesline outside, and one inside the downstairs bathroom.This home will be extremely clean on move-in; so please trust the pictures. The home is painted with Benjamin Moore, Glidden, and Zinsser paints. Most of the flooring is original oak flooring with very good quality vinyl flooring in the kitchen, hallways and bathrooms. This use of quality materials makes it easy to keep the home clean.PET POLICY:Pet allergen free since renovation. No uncaged pets permitted. We are strict about this because we like being able to offer pet allergen free housing to those who need this. You likely will appreciate not having residual smell of other people's cats or dogs. Well cared for Exotic pets in cages are generally OK with landlord because we can contain the allergens. No outdoor pets - this helps to keep the area quiet and encourages wildlife. Please, no critter capable of being heard outside even with the windows open, so that neighbors are not disturbed. NO SMOKING:No smoking permitted inside since renovation! No smoking please, we renovated this home to make it bright, removing lots of smoke haze from walls and ceilings. New ductwork should have no smoke allergen residue. Someday we may add a porch, but at this time there is no place outside where smokers can stand to smoke outside when it is raining or snowing.Maximum 4 people since it has a septic system sized for four people. Children (especially infants, toddlers and teenagers) use at least as much water as adults. Septic systems are sized based upon the amount of water usage they can handle. Occasional overnight guests are fine, but the septic system is not designed for the added burden of full time live-in guests or lots of partying!The ground floor is all but ADA compliant/universally accessible. Recently an 89 year old resident moved comfortably around the first floor all the way out to the car with a walker or a cane. No trip hazards. Year's earlier a young graduate who broke his leg skiing was grateful there were no thresholds on the main level where his bedroom was; the downstairs bathroom was easy with crutches, a walker and wheelchair; and the heater in the level back path kept it ice free so he could benefit from the traction provided by the pretty aggregate concrete path.BT Paratransit will pick up at the door, if you can not walk the several blocks to the bus stop.The home was renovated to make it pretty comfortable all summer long, without the huge cost of running AC. The fans and insulation, when used as designed, really do a great job of keeping the cost of keeping the home comfortable all year round. With a little effort (In summer opening windows at night and closing as the sun heats the world in the morning) you can save much money all summer long. The landlord will provide a room AC unit which vents to the outside, if you decide you need it. This system does not block the view as a window AC would. So far, no one has used AC in this home despite the offer of this AC unit. This is because when sitting still downstairs on hot summer days, residents often find themselves putting on sweaters the house is so cool despite the 90+ degree temperatures outside!New ducting and oil furnace installed during renovations. Wall heaters in both full baths and the fourth bedroom (office/playroom/den/hobby area) are there so you can turn down the heat elsewhere and still keep these rooms very warm. Insulation between floors and rooms muffles sound as well as contributes to the energy-saving features of this home.We only have this one house, but we have 8 other similarly located (in quiet areas with lots of parking and nice views), and similarly well maintained, and upgraded condos and apartments. Please ask! Please tell other people.
