Expanded narrative:

it is a standalone house. In other words, you share no common walls with anyone, above, below or on either side.  This improves your life by offering you more freedom to enjoy your life (potentially with a housemate, a person you can trust and work with),  without worrying about  affecting students in the surrounding properties and without their affecting you.  For serious students, this privacy, solitude, and control over the environment is easily worth the cost differential over an apartment complex type of apartment of similar size.

Second, the parking is free and ample in contrast to housing East of campus.  For those who enjoy the outdoors, gardening, or at the least, spacious surroundings, this solid brick house with vertical casement windows is built on a double lot and a large wooded backyard with a privacy fence. The lease includes regular lawnmowing/landscaping service as well as extermination and repair and maintenance.  The full size washer and dryer means you avoid the inconvenience of bringing laundry elsewhere.  Lastly, I am the owner and landlord. When you have a service request, it goes directly to me and I respond. No buffers or middlemen to deal with which means more responsive service and a continuity in dealing with an issue over time (no organizational amnesia).

13th St offers reliable public transportation and with both Publix, Lucky's, Eastern Market and Ward within a mile, you'll have you choice of grocery shopping and CVS and Walgreens are within walking distance. Restaurants within a mile include: Applebees, Chipotle, Taco Bell, Szechwan Palace, Hong Kong Deli, The Sandwich Depot, Subways, Starbucks, SweetBerries frozen Custard, El Indio, Piesano's, Leonardos, Krispy Kreme, Noodle Bowl, Felipes, Papa Johns, McDonalds, Kabal, Yummy house, Govindas Cafe and of course there are so many more on University Avenue.  In short, the house is centrally located to campus and downtown yet far enough from campus to offer peace and quiet and large wooded lot.
