PEACEFUL AND SAFE LOCATION. EXCELLENT SCHOOLS WITH ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING PROGRAM. We and our tenants reap the benefits of all of the advantages and services that Newton has to offer. We enjoy low to no crime, excellent schools, library, police department, fire department, Crystal Lake, tennis court, soccer field and much more. Our best advertisers are former tenants. We are so fortunate to know several of the families, and we stay in touch over the years. Suzanne from England: "This apartment is a really great place to be for a year in Boston. It is very well set up for tenants to move in and get on with life with a minimum of hassle. Newton is a friendly, peaceful, easy-going neighbourhood with great schools and amenities, including a soccer field and free tennis courts on the next block. Access to central Boston is easy by T (suburban railway), so you have the benefits of being close to the city while living in a small town. Most importantly, Karen and Aaron are wonderful landlords. They are kind and considerate and will go out of their way to make their tenants' stay a happy one. Any issues with the apartment were fixed very quickly. They are very easy to deal with and keen to offer help in settling in as well as sourcing 'nice to haves' such as play equipment for children. Our children have loved spending time with them and walking Scout and we will all miss them when we leave!" Andrés from Spain and Austin, Texas: "1) Location was great; 2) Not too much traffic, yet perfectly connected with central streets; 3) Karen and Aaron were very, very nice people; 4) The apartment was super-functional. It was spacious, and the only catch was that it has only one bathroom, but it didn't affect us." (We met them in 2005 and just visited them for the second time. Their oldest daughter is now at Harvard, and we enjoy her visits. Antoine from France and Spain: "Bowen school is really great, and free. I used to take my daughters there every morning. It’s a 2 minutes’ drive, or 10 minutes’ walk. They have a program called 'ELL', namely “English as a Learning Language”, to help kids whose first language at home is not English...Our kids were comfortable with English after 1 month." ***************** Comfortable, large, lower flat in two-family house. Three bedrooms*, one bathroom, dining room, large living room, den/office. Good beds. Semi-finished basement room primarily for tenants' use. with T.V. desk and toys. Our present tenant uses it for her office. Eat-in kitchen with all appliances including new dishwasher and refrigerator. Many cabinets and desk. Pleasant enclosed back yard and garden. Washer, dryer and hot water heater in basement. We share laundry facilities and back yard. We provide composting at our expense. At present, we share internet. The wall paper in the photo of the child's room was painted over at our tenant's request. My husband and I live in the upper flat with our adorable dog, Edie. (Scout died, sadly.) We are helpful if you want and give you your privacy too. Tenant has easy street parking in front of house. Off-street parking provided In winter, if the City requires off-street parking,
