Looking for an awesome roommate for our isolated windswept manor house
We have one bedroom and an attached nursery available for rent in our historic country manor. There’s also a drawing room in the west wing you can use at no additional charge, and we’ll share the kitchens, the gallery and a great hall as common areas. You’ll be amazed at this place — there’s just so much space you can run around in!
But not in the east wing. Never in the east wing. That’s private.
The landlord lives on the property but is rarely around, so mostly it’ll just be my sister and me and my little girl, plus the staff. This house is over a hundred years old and comes with all its original heating and A/C (LOL!) — there’s a fireplace in every room if you’re cold, and if it’s warm you can open a window.
In fact, feel free to open the windows. Anytime. Even, say, in winter. We don’t mind. 😀
There’s also a pipe organ in the great hall, which you might hear from time to time. We’re reeeaaally into music here. We used to know this guy who was in a band once. Good. Times.
Sometimes we like to just hang out around the house, but you probably won’t see much of us. My little girl and I can also be very outdoorsy at times, especially in winter when the moon is out and the frost is on the ground. Do you like long walks in the snow at the dead of night? Great, we’ll come find you!
So if you’re interested, send us your name and contact info and tell us a little bit about yourself.
Especially tell us if you have any kids. Kids are the best! Can’t get enough of them.
Length of lease: Stay as long as you can.
If interested, call and ask for Maude.
