Help Sell (maybe Rent) My Condo, and Win up to 1 Year Free Yoga

My tenant is moving out and my condo will be available as of October 1, 2017 (sale or rent).

I am wondering if someone out there knows of someone searching for the perfect place to live.  If you do, I’d like you to consider helping them (and me) by guiding them in the direction of my beautiful condominium.

Location: Central Square Condominiums in Plainfield Connecticut (click here see map)

In gratitude for your help I will give you 1 year of free Yoga classes with me at One Yoga Center in Foster, RI.  If you live more than a 30 minute commute from the studio I will pay up to $250 toward classes at another studio. All you need to do is to refer someone to me that leads to the sale of the condominium and you can roll out your mat for a year, on me. Please note that my first preference is to sell the unit. Would consider an ideal tenant.

Please continue reading for more information (pictures below).

The condominimum is a spacious, one bedroom home on the first floor. It’s located in a 50-unit, 1800’s textile mill that was converted to condominiums in 1987. The floor plan is open with wood floors, some brick walls and amazing wood and metal beams original to the building’s construction. It is located on the Moosup River in Plainfield, CT.

The space is ideal for 1 person, although a couple could be comfortably cozy in the space.

When I lived there, I hung curtains, saris,  that I bought in India, on the edge of the living room,  to divide the living room from the rest of the home.  When having overnight guests, I closed the curtains, opened a wicker chest (which was my coffee table), took out an air mattress, and within 5 minutes my living-room was transformed to a private and comfortable guest space.

All of the windows in the unit have custom made cellular, cloth shades. They open from the top down or the bottom up. I purchased these to offer myself full privacy and full light, day or night. They will remain with the unit.

The kitchen is fully applianced (dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and stove), and all appliances are in great working order.  There is lots of cabinet space in the kitchen for food, dishes, pans, etc.

There is also a washer and dryer hook-up within the unit, in a large closet designated for this use. This laundry closet has plenty of space for storage and room to store an ironing board.

In the entry hall, there are two additional large closets. One I used as a coat closet and the other as a linen closet, as it is near the bathroom.

The  tiled bathroom has a jacuzzi bathtub, a natural slate floor and sufficient storage. The water pressure is the best I have experienced anywhere.

In the furnace room, you will find a new hot water heater, the gas burner and much more storage room. This is where I hung my bicycle, put the kitty litter box and stored anything that didn’t find a home in my other closets.

The bedroom is great. It has an enormous window surrounded by an archway of brick and a window seat. There is plenty of room for furniture. I had a king size bed, a dresser, a large bookcase and a rocking chair in there, and it still felt roomy. There is big walk in closet in this room. I kept a ceder chest in the closet for winter storage.

My heating costs were very low. The gas heat was around $70-80/month during the coldest months and I keep it WARM (I hate being cold). The central air conditioner works great and did not pose a large additional expense. The condo seems to be well-insulated and uses both the gas and air very efficiently. It was a very affordable space to live, even on a moderate income.

The grounds are park-like and I enjoyed many, many hours chatting with friends, meditating and doing practice by the river that flows behind the property.  When the river is low, it’s possible to walk the river with a walking stick and water shoes. The back yard was not a high-use area and there I was always able to find a quiet, private spot to relax.

The asking price is currently being determined and I will post as soon as I am clear. I do imagine that it is likely that a mortgage payment will be less than rent in a comparable space.   As a rental it is $925 a month (with a 1 year commitment) which includes the condo fee of $225/month. This fee covers all outside and common space maintenance including lawn/garden care, snow removal, garbage and recycling pick-up. The place is meticulously cared for. All-tolled, it’s a beautiful, safe and welcoming place to live.
