Our family will be spending a year abroad during the 2022/23 academic year. For the right person, our house could provide a spacious, private sanctuary for the cost of renting a room in another house.

We’re looking for a busy, reliable, academically-focused person to provide thoughtful attention to our house while we’re gone. Ideally, you would have minimal furnishings, because our house is completely furnished. You would look out for any mishaps like downed tree limbs (there are lots of trees up here) or blocked gutters, and preferably keep our plants watered. We will pay for all utilities and maintenance, including weekly landscaping.
We’re thinking of it as a rental agreement with a few elements of housesitting included. If that works for you, read on.

What you get are two outdoor decks, a gas fire pit and seating area, a high-end hot tub, a gourmet kitchen, a separate dining room, a large OLED tv, a bedroom with a king bed (and new tempur-pedic mattress), an office with a couch and pull-out bed (for guests), a gas grill, a treadmill, in-room air filters plus a whole-home UV air scrubber (ozone-free), plus access to our Sonos system and office-quality laser printer. All of which you would have to yourself. You can even drink the occasional bottle of wine from our wine rack. You’re getting two full floors of total privacy and quiet living to focus on your work.

What’s not included is car access to the garage, because our cars will be parked there, or the master bedrooms on the third floor, because we’d like our bedrooms kept as-is for our return. If those exclusions don’t work for you, we understand. But even without the upstairs bedrooms, you’ll have access to 2,500 square feet of living space. We believe there’s nothing in the Eugene market that can match our amenities for this price.

If you’re an exceedingly trustworthy person and you’re interested, reach out and we can schedule a phone call and/or coffee visit at Hideaway bakery, which is just down the street from our house. While we’re off having a family adventure next year, maybe our home can provide you an unforgettable year of your own.
