REDUCED RENT: Magical Home (3br 3 bath) on Spring Creek

Magical home located in Houserville (5 minute drive; 15 minute bike ride to campus). Well suited for families, visiting faculty, researchers or graduate students who want to enjoy an easy commute to Penn State while also basking in the raw natural beauty of central Pennsylvania. Many parks, hikes, and bike paths located within short driving distance, as well as shopping less than one mile away (natural food store, farmers market, Walmart) and cafe slightly further afield in Lemont.

The house itself has two floors: the lower floor has a kitchen with stove, oven, microwave and fridge; laundry room with washer & dryer; dining room; living room with wood-burning stove; bathroom and large room that is perfectly suited to serve as an office.

Upper floor has two bedrooms, a second bathroom, a third (master) bedroom with a (third) en suite bathroom and large, walk-in closet.

There is a sizable porch opening onto an enormous (1.75 acre) backyard that leads directly onto Spring Creek, where one can fish or simply relax (it’s a sanctuary of peace). Access to the creek has been, in my experience, a daily source of joy. There is also a tree house (for children or the young at heart) and a large driveway with basketball hoop.

Note that I am not the home owner, and terms and costs and arrangements would need to be set up directly with him before anything is set in stone.
