Hello - I am moving out of my awesome apt into a townhouse and am looking to move by the beginning of March, however that can be flexible. I am looking for someone to take over my lease - female preferred. I've lived in the apartment for 3 1/2 years and the area and my roomie are great.
About the room: This is the second bedroom in a 2BR/2BA apartment in Quincy Plaza on 3900 Fairfax Drive, Arlington VA 22203. The bedroom itself is 11 x 13.6, not including the walk-in closet and the bathroom. Just to give you an idea of the amount of space - in the bedroom, I have room for a large desk for work space, a full size bed, 2 dressers and a nightstand. The walk-in closet is huge and also has shelves behind the racks for more storage. The bathroom includes a large shower with a seat and extra cabinets for storage.
About the apartment: I furnished the entire living room and am planning to take most of it with me, but could be open to selling it for a fair price if desired. Otherwise, the 2 of you can work it out. :) The apt includes:
- Washer and dryer
- 2 separate thermostats (no fighting over the temperature!)
- 2 balconies
- Kitchen appliances - a microwave, toaster, dishes, utensils, and lots of pots and pans
The building has a great gym, a pool, a community room and a business room with a printer, plus wifi throughout the first floor. It's a 5-min walk from both Ballston metro station and Virginia Square metro station on the orange line. There are 2 large supermarkets (Harris Teeter and Giant) in walking distance. Across the street, there is a public park with tennis courts, basketball courts, and the like. Behind the park, there is the Central public library. There is a running track nearby too at Washington Lee high school available for public use. Clarendon is a short walk away, with lots of restaurant and bar options. Ballston also has a number of restaurants and bars.
About your potential roomie: My roommate and I are a Craigslist success story - she is super awesome! Easy to live with and always up for great conversation. She is a 23-year old second year graduate student at Marymount -- but don't let her age fool you, she's definitely mature for her age! She is smart, sweet, clean and easy to get along with. We also have our own groups of friends in DC and are good about giving one another space whenever we need to for work/decompressing.
Please reply to this message with some information about you. I'm looking for someone to take over my lease by March 1st (but again, can be flexible). May be willing to work out a deal for the first month to make your rent cheaper by a bit if I find someone who is great and willing to take over the lease quickly.
Total monthly rent would be $1400, plus $52.50 for utilities (set amount each month so you can blast the air/heat as much as you want and you'll still pay the same) and $40ish for internet (I'm in the process of negotiating a lower rate with Comcast and have Netflix/Hulu). You can also choose to get a parking space in the garage for an additional $50 per month.
