$625 Room for rent in century-old house (Glenside/Arcadia/Westminster)

The three spare bedrooms in this home, the full-time residence of an artist, are rented throughout the year as single rooms to full-time men students from the nearby universities or to young professionals. One room will be available at the end of summer. If this ad is up, the vacancy still exists.

With original hardwood floors and furnished with antiques, this large house passed the century mark in 2013. Each bedroom, which is rented as a single only (no exceptions), is fully furnished and has own TV set. If you are a couple, this will not be a good option for you. The rent for each room, with shared bathroom, is $625. The cost of utilities and wireless high speed internet are included in this price. The students have kitchen/ laundry privileges, access to huge back yard and off-street parking. I am sorry, but I can neither reduce the rent nor enter into a formal arrangement permitting a lodger to perform certain services in lieu of partial rent.

The house is in Glenside, walking distance from Arcadia University, and only a mile from Westminster Theological Seminary. It is a 10-minute drive from Salus University. Its location is just north of the Philadelphia city line in Montgomery County, in an extremely safe neighborhood.

It is half a block from a Wawa convenience store and minutes' walk from the Glenside commercial section and train station (including a line that goes to the airport). For someone without a car--or whose car has broken down-- it is an exceptionally well-connected suburban location.

This house is meant to be a home-away-from home for people from out of town. If this is not your situation, we do not have a match.

I rent out rooms in units of time that correspond to blocks of time on the academic calendar. In this case, the lease on the room would be at minimum through May 31, 2025. I do not make exceptions to my policy of only renting out rooms for such blocks of time. If you seek a month-to-month arrangement, this will not be a good solution for you.

If you think we have a good match, please write me. Tell me about yourself (required if you want a reply), your age, where you work, or what school you go to and what you're majoring in, etc. I will be delighted to hear from you. If we have a good match, I will get back to you. Do not bother to simply write back “I am interested” or only communicate a phone number you expect me to call, because you will not hear back from me.

No pets, please.
