Back on the Market: House for Rent


Hey, look at that: Our house in Sterling is back on the rental market. If you or someone you know is looking for a place in the general Washington DC area, you could be living here. And, you know, loving it.

Here are the details of the house:

* 3 levels (house + full basement); house levels approx. 2300 sq. ft.
* 3 bedrooms (HUGE master bedroom is 22x12)
* 2.5 baths
* Living room is 14 X 14
* Dining room is 10 X 11
* Family room is 19 X 12
* Kitchen is 16 X 12
* Very recently refinished and carpeted basement level includes three additional rooms plus full bath plus very large workshop
* Washer/Dryer, Microwave, Dishwasher and of course standard oven and fridge
* Air conditioning/heater plus vent fan
* Carpeted floors with hardwood hallway (kitchen is tiled)
* Working fireplace
* Located on family-friendly cul-de-sac (with good neighbors)
* Close to Rt. 7, Toll Road and tons of shopping and restaurants
* Pets okay with additional deposit
* House comes with gorgeous full-sized single slate pool table

The lot is small (.11 acre) but the back opens up on a .33 acre "common area" that effectively belongs to the house (you can't get to it except by going onto the property), so the back yard is pretty nicely-sized.

$1,850 per month (plus one month deposit); year-to-year lease. No subletting. Renter pays utilities; we pay homeowner association fee.

The house is available now (we can prorate rents).

If you're interested, drop me an e-mail. Also feel free to share this with people you know looking for housing in the DC area.

It's pretty, although I have absolutely no need for a house in Virginia. =)

Yeah, let's not actually fill up this comment thread with posts that say "I have no use for this house," please. It's not exactly an encouragement for people to rent the place.

In fact, I'm going to close this thread to comments. Folks who have questions about the house can ask them by sending me an e-mail (john@scalzi.com); I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have. Thanks.
