Walk to Yale! Lovely, Light-filled 2bd/1ba in Gorgeous East Rock

Beautiful, incredibly well-lit and large 2 bedroom 3rd floor apartment in the very heart of East Rock village in New Haven. Walls of windows send in plenty of natural light and the ocean breeze. It's minutes from Yale, seconds from the best boutique Italian grocers New Haven has to offer, and it's a very family friendly and safe area.

My husband and I recently moved here from Northampton, MA, and I was just offered a postdoc at Penn, so we have to be off by the end of July. In the time we have spent here we have fallen in love with the whole place---walking along the village paths, running in the numerous parks, and enjoying imported cheeses and fresh Italian pastries from Romeo's and the Orange Street Market (next door!). It's magical and we are sad to leave, but excited for new adventures. Our loss is your gain--truly!

The apartment has a large open kitchen, a central room which we use for dining and seating, and a very large bedroom (we have a full size couch, and a King sized bed, and could probably still fit another couch in there, tbh). There is ample storage space in the numerous closets, as well as adorable reading nooks throughout the house.

The bathroom in the main part of the apartment is a bit small and cozy, but (by some strange magic) includes a large, extra-long bathtub which you can relax in while gazing into the wonderful sunlight that streams in through a romantic recessed skylight.

Across the foyer, and out the door to the living room, is the staircase down and the second bedroom across it. It has its own separate keyed entry. This is a large furnished suite with a wall of windows. Perfect for a mother-in-law, a spacious study, or art studio.

There is a small yard with plenty of space to setup a little garden entertaining area. Plenty of off-street parking, and a large shared patio with rocking chairs. The basement is a labyrinth of space for those needing storage or musical practice. The washer and dryer are free to use for tenants.

Why is it so affordable?! Well, the owners very occasionally (once every two-three months?) will politely arrange a time to come in through the separate second bedroom to the hidden room that sits behind it, where they have stored books and a few odds and ends. They will only come in with your permission and prior approval. They are an older artsy couple, live in the apartment on Floor 1 & 2 and share floor 1 with one other tenant. You have access to both the hidden room and the large closet in the hidden room whenever you like, to store items (or as I wanted too, to set up a desk for writing).
