Looking for an aligned roommate for the room affectionally entitled, The Tower.

The title references the room's large windows that provide a widescreen second story view of the neighboring national cemetery, the happenings of Market street, and the large ancient trees that absorb traffic sounds, and provide partial shade for the epic rising sun morning views, and also seem to protect the home in all kinds of mystical ways.

The Tower can come furnished with king-size bed and comfy bedding, dresser, bookshelf, cedar chest, armoire, big ol' desk and normal sized desk chair, incredible sounding stereo, dimmer lamp, and a large ceiling fan with remote control light dimmer.

The room is part of a three bed room unit of a large, historical, over a century year old, mansion sized home that is divided into 5 units. Meaning, this is a private room that shares a kitchen and bathroom with two other roommates. This is also a transitional period, so it's other occupants are to-be-determined at this time.

Amenities for the shared areas include...
Clothes washer and dryer.
Central heater and air.
The shared bathroom features a big ol' porcelain tub and sink, and a shower head that feels great.
The shared kitchen connects to a flat back roof that's great for laying down a blanket and getting some mid day sun, having a convenient-to-the-kitchen picnic, or a sweet sunset hangout.
The front entrance is a sheltered brick patio/porch that has a large dinning table, great for sharing meals and all sorts of hang out situations.
There's a tiny garden that provides lettuces, strawberries, mint, and one day, figs.
My bike can be utilized when I'm not utilizing it.

Amenities for the area include…
A neighborhood that features plenty of epic trees, historic homes filled with neighbors that will most likely tell you interesting things if you greet them proper.
Its two blocks away from Wallace Park, Port City Java, Burnt Mill Creek (the Bar and the actual creek. Pro tip: a great hike can be had by walking north along Burnt Mill Creek, the creek.)
A short walk, or shorter bike ride to all the tasty restuarants, and liveliness of the Soda Pop and Cargo districts.
It's a 5 minute car ride to downtown, a 10-ish minute bike ride, or a 30 minute walk.
A 20 minute car ride to Wrightsville Beach, or an hour bike ride.
A 30-ish minute car ride to Carolina Beach, or hour and a half-ish bike ride.
And 2 blocks away from a bus stop that can take you to all those places.
There's ample street parking at the mansion and some driveway parking, which is 1st come 1st serve.

Rental lease agreements can be negotiated for a year or less.
It's possible to stay longer than a year. The year would be for all parties to assess whether the living collaboration should continue.

Asking price is $696 a month.

It's possible shorter term rental can be inquired.
Asking price for this could be $296 a week.
Or $90 a night.
