Hi potential future housemate! We have a May 1st opening for a room in our shared home in the wonderful Kensington/Ditmas Park area.

We are a three-year-old shared home that values strong communities, embraces social justice values, and strives to create a home that's like family. The house is a 3 story, 5 bedroom home with finished basement for guest and studio space. We have a new doggie addition to the house, who's a 20lb hound mix and very friendly. We are are looking for a May move in but can be flexible. Rent is $810, utilities an additional ~$100/mo.

Please fill out this form link below (copy and paste) if you are interested.

5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms
An incredibly large kitchen (with two stoves and two sinks!)
An entire floor of common space with two living rooms
Paved backyard and front yard
Finished basement with guest area, storage, & studio space
Free laundry (washer and dryer)
No cats (sorry, allergies!)
10 minute walk to either F train at Ditmas Ave or B/Q trains at Newkirk Ave or Cortelyou Road

3rd floor room cozy room with closet, comes with bed and furnished (if wanted).

We are in our early (early!) 30s with a commitment to cooperative living. As a small, five-person co-op, we are less structured than many communal living situations but we do share costs throughout the house including groceries and household supplies, and divide out care/maintenance of the house. We have a house meeting once a month to share a meal together, plan for the coming month, and share ideas about what we can do to help each other and improve the house.

While we're relatively small in numbers, our house is rather large for us. We like to share the wealth and be open to inviting trusted friends and guests to stay with us in our guest room or in one of the living rooms. We've made great new friends this way and enjoy being generous and gracious hosts.

When we say we like to "build community," we mean we like to share our space for things like: latke night, taco tuesday (or wednesday), backyard summer barbeques, the Flatbush Artist Studio Tour, hosting a workshop for SURJ, house concerts, birthday bashes, rehearsals, and whatever events or activities we think could use a home. We value clear and honest communication, open-heartedness, self-awareness, a love of laughter, and storytelling. While bringing family, friends, partners, and collaborators into our home is a gift all of us have cherished over the years, the most significant memories are with one another, in impromptu conversations in the kitchen, or snow days together where we all don't have to go to work.
