Furnished room

    Details Info
    Price: $ 550.00
    Move In: We are flexible on the move in date partially because we have a guest room
    Town/Area: Kensington

    This is an ad for a $550/month private, furnished room in a house.  This room does not have a private bathroom but one would be available if you want it.

    Location: Kensington, northeast of NIH. Bus takes 14 minutes (RideOn Route 34). Nearest restaurants (at mall’s Costco entrance) are a 7-minute walk away. The neighborhood is 12.44/1.73=7.2 times safer then DC and is even 40% safer than Bethesda. This could be especially important these days. Unless you want to live far from a metro stop, it’s also quieter here because most other metro stops are above ground.  

    The security deposit is intentionally low, $100.  This is another thing we do to help ensure the atmosphere is wonderful, since anyone unhappy could leave very easily.  The month-to-month lease does the same thing.  Most people stay a year or so but others have been here longer, so it is a mix.  Existing housemates on equal footing, with voting & veto rights, so, for instance if voted in you'd be later able to reject anyone wishing to live in the house that you had bad vibes about.  The way that works is that a candidate pays 1/4 of the $100, and if anyone vetoes it’s refunded within 24 hours.

    Room details: The room has a keyed lock (extra security), bed, desk, dresser, chair, table, and a closet with an iron and ironing board. The temperature is fully adjustable to your liking, with strong, floor-specific central air conditioning (AC) and heat. Everything not new in the room will be washed, including the pillows, and the mattress will be fully aired out. The room's 50" smart TV gets HBO+, The Movie Channel, Showtime, Epix, STARZ, Sundance, FLIX, NFL RedZone, Cinemax, IFC, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu as well as hundreds of other channels in HD via our fiber optic link. The example images attempts to show how to watch a movie, whenever you want, on the premium The Movie Channel network.

    House details: This is a large house with a working fireplace, weight room, rec room with 65” 4K with the on-demand movie libraries listed above in surround sound 5.1. The kitchen has most of the gadgets you blissfully but mistakenly thought you’d use. Traditional chore rotation can cause tension between housemates, since cleanliness is subjective, especially when it is a “clean” person’s turn to do a “dirty” person’s prior chore. So, what we do is have the common areas cleaned regularly. Furthermore, all the dishes are also cleaned, sterilized, and put back each day. This is because common oral bacteria are linked to several types of cancers. (See paragraph 2 of section 1 of this paper.) There’s a home gym, deck, outdoor grill, hammock, greenhouse, and foresty area. The house air is filtered with two hospital-grade Merv 14 / MPR 2800 filters. We use these because some studies correlate air quality to brain health. Another benefit is avoiding allergy drugs. Also it is supposed to block any viruses.

    House atmosphere: We're sort of like the Friends TV show.   We have a game night and do stuff together when there’s time including some athletic events.
