This is a true houseshare. Your portion of the basic expense ($550 plus utilities) covers not only an unfurnished second story corner room with windows on two sides but also your use of the house and of the surrounding land. That's two meadows, two ponds, a woods and a stream, with vegetable and flower gardens and a little greenhouse if you like to dig year 'round. The renovated farmhouse with a fast computer connection is convenient to everything, just off the Brownsboro exit of the Watterson, 15 minutes from the airport or the center of downtown, within blocks of good restaurants, a Paul's Market and Kroger's. A gym and a track are each only a block away.

Every window looking out into trees. The woods is a sanctuary with over 50 species of birds that we've so far spotted, so, sorry, no cats. Dogs who do not get up on the furniture, dig up gardens, attack anyone, or bark constantly when alone... friendly, mellow dogs...are welcome. We have a mostly-lab and mostly-setter.

No lease. Deposit: $300. Utilities (gas, electricity, broadband, water, garbage pick-up) are shared, and run $70-110 per month per person. In winter we each cut (or kick in money for) a rick of wood because -- to keep utility costs down -- we have fireplaces and ceiling fans as well as central gas heat and air. Off-street parking and laundry are free. We're looking for someone who needs private space and therefore respects others' need for it, and is friendly when we meet in the shared middle of the house or out by the bonfire pit.
