Quiet mature bookish couple in Greater Boston

Looking for housing starting April 2020, potentially long term. Preferably two bedrooms, or one bedroom plus office--parking included would be ideal. We're quiet people, looking for quiet housing. We've been renting a sabbatical home in Jamaica Plain and would love to stay close by. I'm an avid gardener, so if you're looking for someone to maintain your gardens, we could be a good choice.

About
I've been working in higher ed administration for 15+ years, most recently managing a large federal grant for the 15 Massachusetts community colleges. The kids are grown and off on their own, so we sold our house in the Boston suburb of Milton, and were lucky to land a place in Jamaica Plain from a person spending the summer in Rwanda! My husband is a copy editor at Boston Magazine--we are quiet non-smokers, no kids, no pets. Willing to take care of your plants, garden, and cats.

I highly recommend our tenants, Kathleen Kirby, and her husband, Steven. They have been very easy to deal with, have taken excellent care of my house and furnishings, always paid the rent very punctually and been very accommodating when I have needed small favors, like saving some mail & returning a library book for me. My neighbors have also said what nice people they are. What more could one wish for in tenants! Excellent ML 10/3/2019 7:27:00 AM
