AVAILABLE NOW – fully furnished room in pleasant, older Main Line home on quiet street, 10 to 15 minutes’ walk from Septa station and Villanova University. The $550 rent includes everything: utilities, broadband, carport or on-street parking and 24/7 access to the kitchen, the washing machine and the dryer. The house has good views and three large lawns. If you like to garden, there’s plenty of space to plant flowers, spices or veggies. 

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.

Our home is split level, so entrance to the upstairs tenant rooms is semi-private. We rent our upstairs floor to a maximum of three tenants. Tenants usually share one bathroom with shower; another full bathroom is nearby but rarely needed, as tenants’ hours vary. The room currently available has two large windows with pleasant view. It is furnished with a bed and bedding; very large desk with chair; bookcase, lamp, etc. It has a room-width, oversized closet & shelves. Additional chairs, lamps and art are available on request. 

We strongly prefer that tenants stay at least for one academic semester. We don’t require a lease but can provide one if needed. We do not ask for a security deposit, but we do require at least three weeks’ notice before a tenant moves out. Also, cats are allowed, but no dogs. Smoking is allowed only outdoors or in the carport.

NOTE: Pics of the room for rent are available on request to nbancroft@comcast.net; the pic attached here is of our living room. – Finally, also note that everyone here has had our Covid-19 shots and we prefer that you, also, have been vaccinated.
