Spacious 2-bed, 2-bath condo in New Albany, all utilities included

**Rent includes utilities**
Fully furnished spacious and beautiful 1600 sq ft, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo. Located in a VERY quiet, well-maintained development in New Albany.

-2 bedrooms, living room, 4-season sun room, dining area, huge kitchen, laundry room, and attached 2 car garage
-Overall look and feel is light, airy, spacious, clean, well-maintained, and yet still cozy. Furniture ranges from new, to the odd “used with love" pieces. Feels like a real home :)
-Sun room is equipped with a spacious desk that is perfect for writing or computer work. You are welcome to hook up your laptop to my monitor and keyboard if this is helpful.
-Second bedroom also has a small desk available for use - can be used as a second office. Lots of natural light in this room, too!
-Large master suite has ensuite private bathroom with shower and walk-in closet.
-Second bedroom has large walk-in closet and adjacent full bath with tub.
-Notes about the mattresses, in case you're like me and get nervous about unknown mattresses! Both are in great condition and very comfortable:
Master bed King mattress is less than 3 years old, Sealy, in excellent condition, with a mattress topper for extra comfort.
Second bed Queen mattress is like-new (has been slept on 1 month in total by a very lightweight person), with a memory foam topper for extra comfort.
-Washer/dryer are huge and modern (3 years old), in separate laundry room.
-Spacious, modern kitchen with large refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, toaster oven, and coffee pot (of course!). Well-equipped with all utensils, cookware, and bakeware - everything you might need to feel at home!
-Central heat and air conditioning.
-Home is protected by ADT security system (24/7 monitoring), as well as being located in a very safe area.
-Maintenance: New hot water heater just installed Feb 2020; furnace tune-up Jan 2020. I'm very invested in maintaining the home well, so that tenants need not worry.
-NOTE: TV in living room has Roku streaming device, but NO CABLE. You are welcome to use my Netflix and HBO streaming accounts, or to sign in to your own accounts.

More about the community:
-The condo is located in a very quiet development, which is targeted towards seniors - but all ages are welcome and there are middle-aged folks here, too.
-Landscaping and outdoor maintenance is done by the association. Very well-maintained community.
-The property itself is well-built, to a high standard.
-A small on-site basic gym is available for use (with small outdoor pool in summer), but there are also many gyms/yoga/fitness studios in the area.
-Residents have access to the nearby Preserve area - over 50 acres of nearby park land with walking paths
-Easton shopping center is approx. 15 minutes away, and there are plenty of shops and restaurants in easy reach along Hamilton Rd. This is near a bustling, developing commercial area, although you’d never know when you’re at home, as the neighborhood itself is so quiet!
-You will need a car in this area. The area is accessible to Ohio State University (~25 min drive) as well as Otterbein and Columbus State Community College. To check approximate driving distance, please use zip code 43054 in Google Maps. The home is located near the intersection of Hamilton Rd and Thompson Rd., on the border of New Albany, Gahanna and East Columbus.

I have worked in academic administration for nearly a decade, in the US and abroad, and have used Sabbatical Homes to rent homes myself during my own travels. I'm more than happy to provide a "landlord reference" from a previous or current tenant, and I'm very invested in ensuring that tenants are happy staying here.

About Me
I am an American/British female taking some “sabbatical” time off between jobs in higher education administration. I have previously worked at Northwestern University in the US, and at a University in Saudi Arabia (KAUST) for four years, in roles supporting both faculty and students. I am currently spending time traveling, seeing family, writing, reading and reflecting. I am renting out my home in Ohio on SabbaticalHomes, and I've used this site to rent in the past as well. I am a very thoughtful, conscientious guest who treats others' homes as though they were my own - and I look for tenants who have a similar mindset. I prefer using SabbaticalHomes to Airbnb because I enjoy the sense of community, and appreciate the ability to connect with interesting and thoughtful people from around the world. Happy to provide references on request.
