We are submitting our application for a really good apartment right….now. Cross your fingers that no one got there first and there aren’t any hiccups in the process.
It’s a townhouse in a great part of town with a bookstore, three coffee shops, and a few restaurants within three blocks in one direction, and a park and the Seekonk River a few blocks in the other direction. It’s an end unit, with parking in the back (no yard – that’s okay, we have a park), three levels plus a full basement (with laundry), 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and new appliances. When we saw it yesterday, the management company was in there with three or four guys doing the painting and cleaning. The bathrooms aren’t great, but our other main contender had even less ideal bathrooms, so this one still wins. This one is 2 miles to the main branch of the library, 1 mile to Brown University, and downtown is less than 2 miles away. Easy access, easy walking.
We’re super excited. Now we just need to sign the lease.
