Large 1.5-Bedroom: July 1 – August 30, 2021

This is a clean, spacious, sunlit, and fully-furnished 1.5-bedroom apartment in the heart of Northampton, MA – the main town center of the Five Colleges area. I have been living here for 5 years, and I love my apartment and location in downtown Noho. This 2nd floor unit is 1 block off Main Street, so it is quiet but mere footsteps to restaurants and cafés, as well as local and regional transit.

I call it a 1.5 bedroom because in addition to the bedroom, living room, and kitchen, there is another room that is set up as an office.

If you have a car, there is a dedicated parking spot behind the building for $50/month. If you don't have a car, I've been living here very comfortably without a car. PVTA buses run regularly to all colleges; Peter Pan buses run regularly to regional urban centers such as Boston, NYC, and Albany; and Amtrak runs southbound to NYC and Washington, D.C. and northbound to Burlington. Uber and Lyft are commonplace and rarely require more than a 5-10 minute wait.

There are a handful of food shops within walking distance; and Stop-n-Shop provides home delivery for a $6 fee.

A laundromat is conveniently located on the ground floor of the building.

My place is also located at the nexus of 3 major bike trails. See Friends of Northampton Trails + Greenways for specifics.

In the event that any practical problems arise, my landlord (named Peter S.) is very responsive and helpful.

Regarding dates, I could potentially (?) rent out the unit in June as well.

About Me
I am an Assistant Professor in Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I have an international background, including work/live experience in Sweden, France, and Senegal (as a Peace Corps Volunteer); and travel in parts of India, Central America, and Taiwan. I am clean, quiet, and courteous, and strive to leave the places I visit in as good/better condition as when I arrived.
