Lovely furnished apartment in downtown Stamford, CT - 'Self-Isolation Paradise!'

$1,550 per month (3 to 9 months leases).

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

I'm looking for a responsible, clean, non-smoking person/couple to live in my sunny, spacious furnished apartment in downtown Stamford.
  • Quiet, top (3rd) floor apartment in a well-managed condo complex.
  • Private, off-street parking.
  • 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.
  • Storage for two bikes within the apartment.
  • Pretty, well-maintained gardens, with a separate grilling area at the back of the building.
  • Lease duration - fom 3 to 9 months.
  • Sorry - no smokers, and no cats or dogs.
  • Please note that there are no elevators in the building, so you’ll have to be able to manage two flights of stairs!
If you are interested in renting the apartment please contact me via email (stephen@scollins.net) 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 you being my tenant. 

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.

Other Stuff - The apartment is cleaned every two weeks at my expense, so you get that for free.  There is a TV and a Blu-ray player (for NetFlix, Hulu etc) in the living room, and basic cable is included.  If you want to extend the TV cable service the incremental monthly cost can be added to the rent.  There is no laundry washer/drier in the apartment (the condo association does not allow it) but there are two clean and well-maintained 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.
