Fully Furnished Room 15 min walk to Villanova Campus – Available May 1

AVAILABLE MAY 1st – fully furnished room in pleasant, older Main Line home on quiet street, 10 to 15 minutes’ walk from Septa station and Villanova University. $540 rent includes EVERYTHING: all utilities, wireless broadband, landline phone if needed and carport or safe, on-street parking. There is 24/7 access to the kitchen as well as the washer and dryer. The house has nice views, three large lawns, and a garden to enjoy. If you like to garden, there is plenty of space to plant flowers, veggies or spices.
Our home is split level, so entrance to the upstairs tenant rooms is semi-private. Besides a bed (and bedding) the room has a large desk with chair; an oversized, room-width closet & shelves; lamps plus two large windows with pleasant view. Other chairs, lamps and art are available on request.
Three tenants share the 2nd floor, including bathroom with good shower. Another full bathroom is nearby but rarely needed, as tenants’ hours vary. The neighborhood and our home are always quiet — not for party people! Foreign students are very welcome; our family and home are international. Usually, our tenants are graduate students or young-adult professionals. Everyone here has busy lives, and we will not intrude on yours. The landlord and landlady are very nice professors.
The tenants’ floor is non-smoking. We have a small, elderly cat and prefer that tenants do not bring pets of their own. We strongly prefer tenants who will stay at least one academic semester. We do not ask for a security deposit or lease but do require at least three weeks’ notice before a tenant moves out. Pics of the room for rent are available on request. Email nbancroft@comcast.net.

    To whom it may concern: My name is John Guerra and will be attending Villanova this fall for a Masters in Political Science. I am writing to you because I saw your listing on the Graduate Student Housing Blog. If at all possible, I would be very interested in discussing the possibility of renting out the listed apartment. Please feel free to get back to me at your earliest convenience. I may be reached at this email at any time of the day and may also be reached via my cell phone. The number for that is 508-502-0849. Than you very much, I look forward to speaking with you soon. Appreciatively, John Guerra
