Lovely furnished apartment in downtown Stamford, CT, available June 1st, 2018



Living Room


Dining Room




Why be in a sterile, characterless corporate rental, when instead you can live in a charming, comfortable private home in downtown Stamford?

Please note - this is actually a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment but from June 1st I will be living in Belize. I’ll be back home periodically, maybe for a week or so every 6 weeks, so while I’m away it's effectively a 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment that you'll have to yourself - my bedroom/bathroom will be locked.

$1,450 per month includes off-street parking, very fast (200Mbps) Internet, heating, hot water, gas. A private indoor garage parking spot is available for an additional $65.

I'm looking for a responsible, clean, non-smoking professional (no couples, no kids) to live in my sunny, spacious furnished apartment in downtown Stamford. You're welcome to have your partner stay overnight with you, but they cannot live with you here.  All applicants must have a full-time job, Monday to Friday.
  • Top floor apartment in a quiet well-managed condo complex.
  • Short walk from shops, downtown restaurants, theaters, bars, local businesses etc - see Location.
  • Lovely oak hardware floors and oriental rugs throughout.
  • Great kitchen with new appliances, granite counters, loads of storage space.
  • Pretty, well-maintained gardens, with a separate grilling area at the back of the building.
  • Minimum duration - three months.
  • Sorry - no smokers, and no cats or dogs.
  • Please note that the apartment is a 3rd flooor walk-up with no elevator, so you’ll have to be able to manage two flights of stairs!
Viewing - The apartment is available for viewing from Monday, April 16th.  Please contact me via email (stephen@scollins.net) or by phone/text (203-391-4159) if you'd like to come and see the place.  The more you tell me about yourself (your job, who you work for and for how long, how many months you think you might want the place, your lifestyle etc) the more comfortable I will be with the idea of sharing my home with you. 

Payment terms - Initial payment of three months' rent required - first month, last month and deposit.  When I decide who to offer the apartment to, a non-refundable downpayment of the first month's rent will secure it, with the other two months due when you arrive.  Thereafter the rent needs to be deposited directly into my bank account before the first of the month (my bank is 5 minutes walk away, or you can pay online to my JP Morgan Chase account).

Other Stuff - You would pay half of the electricty and cleaning costs. The apartment is cleaned every two weeks and costs $120 per time. The electricity typically costs about $100 per month. The apartment need to be kept clean and tidy.  While there is a TV and a Blu-ray player (for NetFlix, Hulu etc) in the living room, there is no TV service in the apartment.  If you want to have TV I can have a cable box installed in your bedroom (and you can borrow a 28" TV), and add the incremental monthly cost to the rent.  There is no washer/drier in the apartment (the condo association does not allow it) but there are two laundry rooms downstairs, each with 3 washers and 3 driers.

References and Credit Check - I may require a prospective tenant to provide references, including a letter confirming employment with your current employer, and/or a recent credit check.
