Two easy-going roommates looking for a third right by the water in Beverly, just 30 minutes out of North Station on the Newburyport/Rockport Line. From our place, you can walk to the ocean in three minutes, Beverly Depot in seven, and a growing downtown foods scene in ten. I’ll be honest, the exterior of the building is in pretty rough shape, but once you get inside, it’s quite charming – big kitchen/livingroom, brick fireplace, winding staircase to the attic bedrooms. Extraordinarily cozy in the winters, which is a big win for us New Englanders. The attic room for rent is quite spacious, with plenty of storage, good light. Apartment comes with laundry/dryer/dishwasher and an intercom system that sadly no longer works.
Our landlord is pretty hands-off, hence the condition of the exterior, but the plus side is very affordable rent for this area, and flexible move-in/move-out dates. We are currently doing month-to-month, and have been for a few years. Rent is 515/month (with utilities averaged over the course of the year, it comes out to 660/month).
A little about us – both guys around thirty, one of us works in finance, one in social work, both very involved in our local churches (ACNA and PCA). We have been hosting community and prayer groups in our living room for years, and have an open-door policy; friends are often in and out at for a cup of tea and a chat. The writer has a lot of plants, arguably not enough, while the other roommate has an abiding love of puns, hopefully none of these realities are deal breakers for you! We are hoping to find a roommate who is as passionate about their faith as we are.
Feel free to shoot me a text or e-mail for facetime tour of the place!
