We have a room to rent in our 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 2,800 s.f. brick house in a tiny community with well-kept houses built in the 60's. We are located 20 miles west of the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge in a quiet, clean and safe village with no traffic.

The room is 12 ft. by 12 ft. It is fully furnished, has a double closet, and shares a bath with one other tenant. The rent is $400/mo. including all utilities, WIFI and cable, use of the kitchen, washer/dryer and all common areas. Obviously, with over 2,800 s.f. there's plenty of room to spread out. The house has central heat and air and plenty of off-street parking. There is a living room and a den, a dining/game room, and the kitchen has a breakfast area. All rooms are larger than is average. There's also a furnished screened-in porch for smoking if you must, and it's all sitting on a little over an acre and backs up to an honest-to-goodness forest.

We rent to only one person in each of the 3 rental rooms to insure that we aren't overcrowded and everyone has an appropriate "comfort zone". My husband and I are 69 years old, retired, married forever and pretty happy with each other so there's little drama. We're non-smokers, no drugs, seldom drink and are more or less quiet. Husband has a boat, would rather fish than breathe, and is always looking for someone to go with him. Our only disreputable vice is that we're into oldies music (50's and 60's).

We have indoor/outdoor cats who are moderately well-behaved (in a cat-sort-of-way) and can sometimes be persuaded to share the night with you if you go into pet shock or need a low-energy foot warmer on chilly nights. They go outside - even in the rain - for all of their unmentionable activities, so there are no stinky litter boxes inside. Also, fleas and ticks are not allowed and furniture destruction and excessive shedding are frowned upon. There's also a door which separates the part of the house containing the three rental bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and one of the living rooms, from the rest of the house so half of the house is more or less cat-free unless you actually want to commune with them.

Amazingly, there is a grocery store, library, filling station, bank, Subway, Family Dollar, post office and fire station only about 1/4 mile away -- country living at its best.

We think our ideal tenant would be mature (as in middle age and up) with reliable transportation as we are not near any public transportation. Also, we would prefer someone who intends to stay at least six months. However, you are welcome to try to change our minds if you do not meet all of this criteria.

You can reach us for more information or for an appt. to come see us by answering this ad or, better yet, by calling us. (e-mail info and phone # in "reply" above). If we aren't in, you can leave a voice mail, but, sorry, WE DON'T TEXT.
