This center-entrance Colonial has a large living room with a fireplace, oak moldings, built-in bookcases, and a piano. The second floor has a master bedroom with a king-size bed and single sofabed, and two additional bedrooms, one with a full size bed (can sleep 2) with a lovely, hand-painted nature themed mural on the walls. The third bedroom upstairs has a loft bed for one and a desk underneath. On the first floor is the fourth bedroom; it's off the living room, has a single bed, many windows and curtains, and elegant oak doors and moldings. One more person can sleep in the living room on a pull-out sofa.
There is a bathroom on the first floor with a shower, and a full bathroom upstairs. The dining room is large; the kitchen has a granite "bistro" bar, stainless steel appliances, new granite countertops elsewhere, and new Pergo flooring. (While we vacuum frequently, those allergic to dog and cat dander should not rent. Although we kennel our dog when guests are here, our cat remains in the basement with her water, food, and litter box.) Our property is in a "leafy neighborhood" and has a large backyard. A grill is available for use. The property is within walking distance of downtown Lexington and a mile or so from Rte 2 and 95 by car.
There is parking for three cars in the driveway. No parking is allowed on Prospect Hill Road. The house has 1750 square feet in seven rooms, plus two bathrooms, and a bright and partly finished basement of 700 additional square feet with play space, a TV, couch, and a foosball table. The whole house is rented out to guests, not shared. We have our house cleaned professionally before guests arrive; but we pay for half of that cost.
Sorry, but I need to add this: Guests need to be respectful of neighbors and their properties. We do not allow parties, indoors or outdoors, as this disrupts the peace of our quiet residential neighborhood. (Having a few local friends over for dinner is different!) No smoking is allowed inside the house or outdoors on our property.+ More
