Country lanes, near train to New York, happy humble home

Renting out three-bedroom split-level ranch from August, 2019, to mid-August 2020, during our sabbatical year. $2,300 per month (includes electricity, lawn mowing service, anti-tick spraying service, boiler maintenance contract, and pest control contract). Lightly furnished.

Perfect if you are renovating, or in the area for only one year, or just starting to look for a place to buy in the region. Homey house of arty non-smoking husband-and-wife college professors. 1,300 square feet. Thirteen acres of wood beside it. Lots of quiet and privacy.

Pets okay. Lovely one-mile walk around the block with very little traffic. Lake rights; the lake beach is a short walk away. Friendly neighbors near by. Garden plots in backyard, if you like gardening. Rear deck and screen porch. Plenty of off-street parking.

You would have the upper level: large, medium, and small bedrooms. Living room. Kitchen open to eating area with window seat and picture bay window looking into woods. Large bathroom (tub, separate shower, two sinks, toilet, bidet).

Light furnishings. Couch. Armchair. Eating table and four chairs. Two futon bed-couches. Three bedroom chests of drawers. One desk. One bedroom chair. Some shelves of books, vinyl records, and DVDs/video-cassettes will remain. For instance, in the living room we would leave one wall of shelves full of vinyl phonorecords and two handsome walnut cabinets (with lots of empty space available for the tenant to use), and one upright piano.

Priced below market to reflect the fact that we are leaving some of our personal belongings in the rented rooms and will be keeping part of the house for our own occasional use during the year.

We retain the downstairs and the attic, shed, garage. We might be staying downstairs for a week or two, perhaps a few times during the year.

Sunny windows face east, south, and west. Living room air conditioner, plus old-fashioned attic fan. Heating is hot water pipes.

Cast-iron fireplace. Good supply of logs on the deck comes free.

One-mile walk to the public library. Slightly over one-mile walk to the bus to the Katonah train station (Katonah-Ridgefield commuter bus).

Option of a small swimming pool (negotiable; it’s the kind you put up and take down seasonally).
