Culture, piano, coffee, and car--urban pied-a-terre with a secret garden
Looking for a sojourn in the city? Great restaurants, easy getting around, living in a leafy artsy neighborhood? Mele (Meh-lay) would like to occasionally cuddle on the bed, the couch (TV), or behind you in the desk chair while you telework. He'd also like to wander in and out of the house now and then--less "out" in winter--but he tolerates his people being away for many hours.
I'm open to first-time sitters! I mostly want someone calm and friendly who knows how to scratch the itchy spots on a cat, will spend a half hour here and there reading (or fooling with apps) on the patio or couch while Mele purrs nearby, and will reliably feed him in the morning and evening. He isn't demanding but he does need some company and attention....
My apartment style might be described as "intellectual quirky." I have a Steinway baby grand, a wall full of books, and enormous geology maps on the walls. I have plenty of coffee-making equipment, and you're welcome to use my car (carefully!). There's wifi, Netflix, and Amazon prime video, but *no cable TV right now.* + More info
Our Home & Location
This 2-BR apartment is a bit quirky but comfortable. Huge living room with books and piano, galley kitchen fairly well equipped, dining room, 1 bath with amazing water pressure, and a beautiful little garden patio out back.
The apartment is in a pretty, leafy, safe neighborhood, a 10 minute walk to transit (train, light rail to airport and DC, free circulator bus to harbor and Charles Village), and next to the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). There's a great little coffee shop around the corner, a Barnes & Noble 5 minutes away, 3 churches and a temple within a block, and the symphony is at the bottom of the hill. It's 1.5 miles to the inner harbor, the aquarium, shopping, and tons of restaurants.
Responsibilities & Pets
Let cat in/out back door to patio; feed him breakfast and dinner; hang out with him for 15 minutes several times a day. Also water plantings on patio every 2 days. Pretty easy, yes?
