Sunny, Quiet, Furnished Studio For School-year Rental
This sunny, fully-furnished and self-contained, non-smoking studio has skylights, french doors, original art on the walls, two decks, and great views, yet offers easy access to local schools (UMass, Amherst College, Smith College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Greenfield Community College, and Route 21. It is also less than a mile from the Montague Bookmill (www.montaguebookmill.com).
It is one of two unattached and very private units on an acre of country land. With decks on both the east and west sides, it's a nature-lover's (or bird-watcher's) paradise!
This high-end, beautifully-appointed studio is available through the end of May 2019.
Has oak floors, and an open plan that includes a kitchen, dining area, office space, and bedroom area with queen-size bed. At just under 400 square feet, it's easy to clean and maintain, yet has space for all the important things (eat, sleep, shower, work on the computer, dance...)
There are lots of extras here -- very pleasantly furnished, there's also clean, clear well water from the taps, and a garage space (for parking only, not storage) with a garage door opener (meaning you won't have to get out in the rain and snow), and if needed a window air conditioning unit. Plus, there's on-site access to a washer and dryer.
Nearby are hiking and cross-country ski trails, streams for fishing, river for boating, and low-traffic biking roads.
Travel times: 15 to 20 minutes from Route 91 or Route 2, UMass, Greenfield, Deerfield, and other area schools; closer to 30 minutes from Amherst and Smith Colleges, and Northampton.
Rent includes some utilities (gas for cooking, lawn care, and wifi); you pay for your electric use (heat & hot water) and trash stickers. Snow removal is shared with the people living in the house; I provide a snow blower (serviced annually) for your use.
This is ideal for a quiet, non-smoking working person, grad student, or faculty member looking for a peaceful, homey oasis in a hectic schedule. It is an idyllic place to live.
Please note, there is no smoking of anything by anyone anywhere on the property. If you are a smoker, please pass this by.
