Our lease is up and my housemates are all going in different directions. I'm looking for a room or house or apartment in Columbia City or surrounding areas starting in September. I'm a single female in my mid-30s, non-smoker, responsible, no pets (but if you have some it's great—I love them!). I work for a nonprofit so my budget is tight, but I have great credit and I'm flexible on the type of place. I'm a good roommate but also willing to live alone, so if you know of ANYTHING, please let me know! Thank you!

$750 / 2br - Clean, comfortable MIL for one or two (Seattle's Columbia City neighborhood)
My good tenants are moving on, and I'm looking for someone for the mother-in-law apartment in my sunny old house. I'm out of town until August 21 and can show it after that.
It's a clean, comfortable "daylight basement" with its own entrance and good light from the west. It has two bedrooms, a full bath, a living room, and a kitchenette with full stove. It has two ample closets, carpeting, recessed lighting. Nice, sunny yard with some space perfect for barbeque or alfresco meals (mowing the lawn and basic maintenance are required). On-street parking on a small dead-end street.
The unit is 90% self-contained. The shared 10% involves (1) the fact that thermostat for the whole house is upstairs, and (2) the fact that the women upstairs come down at agreed-upon times to use the washer drier in the space. A possible (3) and (4) would be the security of having others upstairs and the comfort of occasional friendly contact if desired.
The "landmark" Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle has been "revitalized" in recent years and is thriving, with a library, cafes, health-food store, ethnic groceries, gym, restaurants, farmer's market. The house is a mile from the beautiful Seward Park on Lake Washington, with its trails for walking, running, or biking. The light rail is about a ten-minute walk. Buses are closer. The center of downtown Seattle is five miles away, and the bike ride there is pretty flat.
I am an older editor, health-minded and drug-free, and an experienced, hands-off landlady.
Several things won't work: Since it is about 600 square feet, the space, though well laid-out for one or two people, doesn't work well for someone with lots of furniture or possessions. Also, there is insufficient soundproofing for practicing musicians. Also, I'm sorry I can't take animals, no matter how small and unobtrusive.
The photos show furniture of previous renters.
Rent is $750/mo plus utilities, which are shared among the whole house. To start, first month's rent and $750 security deposit. Available Sept 1.
