We are a couple looking to share a two-bedroom loft apartment in South End - corner of Washington + E. Berkeley, across from Peter's Park and Myers + Chang, adjacent to Laconia and Gateway Lofts. Perfect location! 5 min walk to Whole Foods and Ink Block restaurants. 0.9 mile walk to Boston Medical Center, 0.4 mi to Tufts Medical Center/Dental, 1.5 mi to MGH.

Great access to subway - 0.4 mile walk to Orange line (Tufts Medical) – 0.6 mi walk to Red line (Broadway) – and 0.7 mi walk to Green line (Boylston). Silver Line buses along Washington to downtown. 15 minute walk to Back Bay/Copley or Boston Common. Also SOWA farmers markets on Sundays. Peter’s Park across street has basketball, tennis, ballfield.

Third floor loft apartment – with huge freight elevator great for moving stuff in! 1910 building originally for industrial textiles – high 11-ft ceilings, old refinished floorboards, spacious stairwell and hallways, etc. – really neat space. Solid floors built for equipment prevent sound above/below. Building renovated in late 1990’s – bookshelves, cabinets, etc. and bedrooms built out.

Total apartment is 1200 sq. feet, one level – loft has large, open common space – living room with TV and 2 windows looking out across E. Berkeley towards Boston skyline – dining table area near to kitchen – dishwasher – lots of bookshelf space with glass cabinet doors – hallway with huge closets near front door – bathroom off hallway.

Bedroom for rent is corner of building, so lots of light! 4 windows, 2 onto Berkeley and 2 onto Fay St (behind building). Expected city/street noise. Bedroom is 18 x 11 ft and semi-furnished – huge closet wardrobe with shelves and mirror, standing lamp, bookshelf. Photos show empty room and some with furnishings.

Building is very safe – key to front door, 2nd key to metal hallway door, 3rd key to apartment.

Your rent is $1,500/month, which includes utilities (water, heat, electricity), except internet/cable is approx $27/month - WiFi and/or hard cable Ethernet. 2 new washers and 2 dryers (free!) in laundry room across hall.

A/C window unit in your bedroom – also A/C unit in living room window and 2 ceiling fans in main common area.

Flexible lease – one month deposit - ideally one year minimum, but shorter stays also considered. Landlord is a good friend and photographer. Lived here many years and love the space - always had roommates and happy to connect you with past roomies as references. Sorry, no smokers.

Happy to meet virtually, to see if space and personalities seem like a good fit, and to answer any questions you might have. We can also share links to a video tour of the apartment so you can see the whole space and layout. Stay safe! Lewis + Amanda

About Me
Hello! I'm an actor and educator based in Boston, working mostly in theatre but also film/TV. I also do freelance work in communication skills for corporate clients, and work at Children's Hospital Boston in improv-based training, helping clinicians with difficult conversations. I'm also a member of Theatre Espresso, performing shows about social justice in US history. Prior to acting I worked in documentary films, and loved traveling to Alaska, Ethiopia, Grand Canyon for projects. I live with my partner Amanda, also an actor, in the South End of Boston. When not acting, I also enjoy training for sprint and Olympic distance triathlons.
