The history

The house is about 60 years old. Its current owners, a couple with a three-year-old daughter, bought it five years ago. They’ve renovated it since then, updating the kitchen and adding a skylight over the stairs—though they opted to keep the original hardwood floors and clawfoot tub:


The family is moving to Ireland for a year, and they’re looking to rent out the house while they’re away.

Major perk

In the master bedroom, a closet spans the length of an entire wall, offering plenty of space to hang and stack a wardrobe:


Possible deal breaker

There’s just one bathroom on the second floor, among three bedrooms. Housemates will have to share, or go downstairs.
