No pets , please.
Garage space available for bikes and/or skis. Owner does not use the garage for vehicles, but owner does need access so the garage door may be opening and closing. We will be considerate about time of day for access.
The only real downside is that there is no deck or terrace attached to this apartment, although there is lawn space. Of course if we get along, there could be an invitation to use our outdoor spaces.
