Charming 1940s home on a quiet corner lot

We love this house! It's a 1940s craftsman style home in the Duckpond area, close to both campus and downtown. The home is flooded with light and full of architectural detail. Original hardwood floors, eat-in kitchen, and very cozy furniture. We are currently set up with one bedroom and two offices. We love to cook and have a fully stocked kitchen. We’ll leave a small library of literature, and there’s a 55” Roku TV with sound bar. Outside is a lovely, fully fenced yard with deck, fire pit, and hammock. A shed in the back houses an elliptical and cruiser bike that you are free to use (as well as additional storage room). The repurposed concrete driveway fits two cars. We are hoping for renters from September 1, 2023 through the end of the year, but we can be a little flexible as needed. Rent is $2,200/month, with utilities and lawn care included.
