Sabbatical housing for 2019-2020: vintage home blocks from UO

Now for rent: a charming, spacious home just blocks from the University of Oregon. FURNISHED. Lease beginning as early as July 1, 2019 (dates negotiable). This vintage 1915 home has 4 bedrooms, an office that can double as a guest bedroom (with a built-in bed), and 3.5 bathrooms in all. Square footage approximately 2,700 square feet. It has hardwood floors on the main level, tall ceilings, new appliances, bonus gathering spaces, and newly installed central heating and air conditioning. The house is fully furnished and is situated in a quiet, friendly neighborhood — just a 10-minute walk from campus, and around the corner from Prince Puckler’s ice cream, Hey Neighbor pizza, and other popular eateries. The house is ideally suited for families and would be great for new faculty members, sabbatical visitors, and anyone looking for a spacious place to rent for a year in lovely South Eugene.

On the main level, the kitchen has a high-efficiency dishwasher and new Samsung refrigerator with French doors. The dining room has a gas fireplace and extendable dining table. The living room has a large gathering space, built-in bookshelves, and a piano. A bonus side room with skylights features a ping-pong table and game shelves, connected to an enclosed private garden with ivy and a fountain. An additional back room features multiple bookshelves, a convertible sofa bed, and a small toilet room.

Master bedroom has a queen-sized bed, mounted television, large wardrobe, closets, and a European-style shower and sink. Two identical bedrooms feature high ceilings, loft spaces for reading or toys, and French doors with balconies, with views of rising Hayward Field in the distance. One bedroom has a queen bed, the other twin-sized bunk beds. A fourth bedroom has a built-in single bed, desk, and large walk-in closet.

The laundry/office space, also on the second floor, features new high-efficiency front-loading washer and dryer, desk, additional closet space, and a built-in twin bed with small trundle, perfect for a guest. Upstairs, there is a freestanding shower room with separate claw-footed cast-iron tub, as well as a room with shower/tub combo.

The front yard is designed in the English style, with boxed hedges, a private courtyard, and a raised herb bed filled with mint, thyme, oregano and chives. A large front porch with adjoining bike racks makes for a wonderful seasonal gathering space. The backyard features multiple decks, a hammock, gas grill, two large picnic tables, pear trees, raised beds with fruits and vegetables, a grassy fenced area with trampoline, and a large sport court with basketball hoop and outdoor lighting.

The house is in an ideal location: less than a mile to most anywhere on University of Oregon campus (even closer to the law school), making for easy commuting by bike or foot. Blocks from restaurants, pubs, grocery shopping, and parks. University daycare centers (Olum and Moss St.) are within close walking distance.

Rent: $3,295/month, negotiable. Utilities are not included. No pets and non-smoking.

Timeline: The home is available July 1, 2019, ideally for a 1-year lease agreement, but dates and arrangements are negotiable.
