About

This is a beautiful mid-century home on a large lot, built in 1962 and lovingly restored with period sinks, light fixtures, etc. It has fresh paint on the outside (not shown in the pics, since the job is still underway), modern furnishings that you get to use, and is kid- and pet-friendly. We are looking for a family or individual(s) who will enjoy our home while we are away on sabbatical. We want you to feel at home and will help you adjust to the area as well as to the home. We hope to provide you and yours with a wonderful place to dwell during your stay or start in Lexington. Our things will remain in the home, but we will ensure they are either available for your use (furniture, kitchenware, etc.), or out of your way. We look forward to hearing from you!

Minimum Stay

11 Months | Dates are flexible for this listing

Comments: We would love to find a tenant who stays for all 11.5 months, but shaving a bit off of the start or end dates would be ok. We would just pro-rate the rent for that period.

House Sitting

I am looking for help while I am away

I would like help with mail and deliveries

We will need you to forward some mail now and then, using postage-paid envelopes we will leave behind.

I would like help with plants or garden

We have quite a few house plants that you will need to water. There is a garden plot, and its use is optional. We'll be leaving you some tomato plants in case you like tomatoes.

Comments: You'll need to ensure that the front lawn is mowed. A contractor is in place to mow, and you can keep that going or do it yourself. The whole place is $40 per mow, and the front only is $20. We will pay for leaf removal in the fall.
