roommate Wanted


Hi!  I’m looking for 3 new roommates (guys or gals) to fill my 4 bedroom rowhouse in Church Hill.

The rooms up for rent are all upstairs on the second floor, including the Master bedroom with private ensuite bathroom ($675), another large bedroom with a skylight and private porch ($625), and a third good-sized room right in the middle ($600). None of the bedrooms share a wall with each other, so that cuts back on any potential noise. And the second two bedrooms share a bathroom between them. The utilities (water, trash, electricity, gas, TV, and internet) are split between the four roommates. The rooms will be available starting May 1, although that is somewhat flexible

So about me -- My name is Loren, and I am a fourth year medical student at MCV. Ideally I am looking for similarly laid back, easy-to-get-along-with, responsible types, particularly other graduate students or young professionals. Gender is of no consequence, either male or female. Also, I have two cats.

I should also mention that the house is totally furnished and the kitchen is supplied, so you just need furniture for your own bedroom. The house has some other great communal amenities including a BBQ grill (with nice little back porch/patio area), a huge couch with big flat screen TV for friends and guests, and a beautiful growing neighborhood to explore!

More nice perks about the house:

  1. Located in nice, historic Church Hill residential neighborhood (near 24th and Broad St. by St. John’s Church where Patrick Henry gave his “Give me Liberty or Give me Death” speech.)

  2. Quick walk to neighborhood bars/restaurants such as Captain Buzzy’s coffee shop, Proper Pie Company, Hill Cafe, and Patrick Henry pub. Close to to breath-taking city views at Libby Hill Park and Chimborazo Park. Grocery store and CVS just down the hill.

  3. 15 minute walk or 5 minute bus or bike ride to MCV campus/VCU Hospital

  4. City bus stop just outside which can take you straight to MCV/VCU campus

  5. Walkable to Shockoe Bottom (downtown area with restaurants and bars).  Also can walk to city capitol area, downtown businesses, etc.

  6. Back porch and patio with BBQ grill and chairs

  7. Everything is set up - totally furnished living room and kitchen, cable-ready in your bedroom, wireless internet, and DVR for living room TV

  8. Many other grad students live in the area

  9. Parking is never a problem (can be a major pain in the Fan)


House: 4 bedroom / 3 full baths, 2500 sq ft, fully furnished except your room. All wood floors with stone tile in the bathrooms. Full sized washer/dryer on the ground floor.

Rent: $600-$675/month depending on room + split utilities (~$125/month)
