This houses’s primary goal is to be a low-key housemate experience. We have all had multiple housemates in the past and know how to live harmoniously with people who are not are families. As a result, we don’t have house meetings. Conflict is handled one-on-one and household decisions are primarily made by brainstorming and voting over email. We are all adults (30 and beyond) with different hobbies and lifestyles. We like each other but live independent lives. We are welcoming to one other but hanging out is never mandatory.

Let me give you a quick overview of the house. We live on a quiet tree-lined residential street ⅓ of a mile from the Red Line (equal distance from both Fields Corner station and Shawmut Station). We are less than ⅓ of a mile from a very awesome and cheap grocery store. And this summer we will be less than ½ of a mile from a brand new Target. Also within easy walking distance is a Boston Public Library branch, Post Office, gym, and many restaurants. Our house was also once the home of famous mystery novelist Gladys Edson Locke--and could be your home!

Cozy Front porch
Sunny front yard and shady back yard
We have a grill, picnic table, and a firepit and we are happy to share
Easy on-street parking
Great neighbors

Unfinished basement:
Designated basement storage
Free in-unit Laundry

First Floor:
Spacious Foyer
Dining room
Living room with working fireplace
Many “Dorchester Butlers’ Pantries”
Eat-in Kitchen, with dishwasher
Half bathroom

Second Floor:
3 Bedrooms, one of which could be yours (Blue Bedroom in photos)
The available bedroom has a very expansive closet, two windows, and a ceiling fan
Full Bath
Library/office space with stained glass window and a window seat (Yellow room in photos)
The library/office space is shared by you and only one other renter

Third Floor:
This is where your live-in landlords live. We are a cute little married couple. We are aviators, hikers, bikers and all-around adventure-havers. We are live-in landlords so we care about having a nice place to live and as a result, we take very good care of the property. We not only repair things when they break we even do non-intrusive improvements from time to time.
*Coming soon to the third floor, we will have some newly-renovated guest space.

If you are interested in the space please email me. Tell me little about your self and maybe why you want to live with us. Thanks.
