Comfortable house in quiet neighborhood

Comfortable house in a quiet family neighborhood with a woodland view, 3 miles to Amherst College, 3.5 to UMass. The neighborhood includes a clean private pond for swimming. House is offered furnished except for master bed and sofa (loveseat included).

Generous kitchen with eat-in area and a large deck adjacent; living room with woodstove, and dining room, both with hardwood floors. Three bedrooms (carpeted), plus walkout basement with office and family room. One full bath, two half baths; washer and dryer on first floor; garage with space for one car, plus driveway. New insulation in attic, efficient heat-pump hot water heater, double-pane windows, gas hot-air heat, central air conditioning. Yard and garden space.

Lovely neighborhood with a rural feel, walkable roads, and good neighbors. Conservation land and the Robert Frost Trail are close by. Bus line to town and UMass also nearby

While the systems in the house are all in good order, the interior has not been updated in a while. This is reflected in the price.

Owner pays association fee; tenant is responsible for snow removal and lawn mowing (recommendations available, or DIY). Owner will retain use of a basement storeroom and a second-floor office for storage.

About Me
I'm the author of two books from the University of North Carolina Press, and I've taught at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and elsewhere. From 2012 through 2016 I coordinated a networking group for independent scholars. Earlier in my career, I was a librarian and a college administrator. I've also worked as a volunteer tutor for students seeking high school equivalency. In my spare time I love gardening and cooking.
