Gainfully-employed homeowner mom seeks another motivated woman as housemate. My kids are going off to college (one remains and is a busy and successful student whom you will see little of). It's almost an empty nest here in this beautiful spacious home, and it's too big and a bit too lonely.

You get the master bedroom.
Your room has en suite bath and is optionally furnished. Blackout blinds installed.

Large yard, trees, porch, patio, grill, outdoor seating. No neighbor drama, no crime in the years I've owned the home. I can probably accommodate some common area furnishings of yours, particularly a large dining room table, sectional sofa, some bookshelves, and/or large television.

Me: serious-minded and also cheerful, strong dislike of cigarettes. Some socializing is desirable, but I won't crowd you as I do enjoy my own company. I own a car and have robust and varied interests. I am a natural foods-store type re:health, household supplies, pet care.

We have one affectionate, well-cared for senior cat and will get no more. You'll absolutely be needed for petting duties; Kitty is a little lonely since her favorite person left for college.

I can use help with chores: if you enjoy helping with chores like lawn mowing/garden bed/gutters/filling up the water softener for 30 minutes a week, I can include a spot in the attached garage for your small to medium-sized car.

There is room for you to bring a bicycle and some other outdoor equipment. There is room for you to store up to 6 large totes of items in our full basement. I have an inversion board and a weight set that you are welcome to enjoy. We have multiple refrigerators in case you like to stock up when you go to the grocery. I'm looking to get a massage table so bring yours or use mine once I purchase.

You don't necessarily have to have a perfect background check, but I will be looking at it with my own standards in mind.

Tell me about you and what you're seeking in a home at this time. If you're a gentle mom of one young child, don't hesitate to reach out. Our large backyard is fenced, so if you stay a long time I'm open to you adding swings/playset in back. Once my child leaves, I could likely rent you a second bedroom or the entire house.

I included so much information so that you can respond with a serious inquiry. I delete vague inquiries due to prevalence of craiglist spam, so make sure I know you're responding to my specific ad. Sorry for the somewhat random spread of pictures; I will send ample photos to a serious inquiry.
