Lovely 2-story, 1BR apartment located in the South Clintonville/North University District area, minutes from OSU or downtown. It overlooks the Glen Echo Ravine, is comfortably furnished, and is ideal for a single or couple who are visiting Columbus.
The apartment entrance is behind a 2-car garage and has an entry deck and covered entry porch. The space is on two levels, with an eat-in kitchen on the entry level, and a living room, bedroom, and bath on the upper level. The kitchen space and the living room space both have wonderful views of the ravine greenery with its many birds and other wildlife. The kitchen level has easy access to the entry deck that also overlooks the ravine and has seating so you can relax outdoors.
The eat-in kitchen has a 24” electric stove, a bottom-freezer refrigerator, a microwave, and generous counter and cabinet space. It’s fully supplied with dishes, pans, and silverware, and has a toaster and a drip coffee maker. There is a stacked washer-dryer unit nearby in a small closet with a louvered door.
The eat-in kitchen is furnished with a 2’x5’ table with seating for five, and it has a comfortable sofa bench under a large picture window. The window has a crack in it, but the glass is held fimly in place by the frame. It's somewhat unattractive, but it doesn't pose any problem. There is a wall-mounted 28” smart TV which can be watched while seated at the table or seated on the bench or standing in the kitchen.
Upstairs there is a living room with sofa, arm chairs, coffee table, 40” TV, and desk: a bedroom with a queen-sized bed; and a bathroom with a shower/tub. The floors are hardwood, except for the bedroom and stairs which are carpeted, and the bath that is tiled. Linens are provided for the bedroom, bath, and kitchen.
The apartment has central AC and gas heating, and has Cable and wireless internet service. There is a no-smoking/no-pet rental policy, but it is not suitable for people with pet allergies because of the presence of several cats in an adjacent apartment. It is not suitable for children.
There is one assigned off-street parking space. Additional on-street parking is available in front of the building except between the hours of 4-6pm on weekdays. During those hours, on-street parking is available on the opposite side of the street.
I am retired from OSU and I live next door to this apartment, so I am available to solve any problems pretty quickly (unless I am out of town).
This is a wonderful neighborhood with a mix of rental units and private residences. There is a ravine park within easy walking distance and an assortment of shops and restaurants on Indianola. It’s a quick drive to High Street and its many shops (including a Giant Eagle supermarket and a CVS pharmacy), and access to either the I-71 or the 315 freeway is quite close.
A city bus line runs in front of the building. It travels primarily south and north and will easily get you to downtown or to Worthington, with transfers available to other directions. An OSU bus line runs just south of the apartment with a stop about 4 blocks away, at Clinton and Indianola.
To avoid creating a disturbance to residents of a living space below this one, please refrain from loud or boisterous behavior inside the apartment, particularly between the hours of 11pm and 7am, . Guest visitors (3 or 4 max) are welcome for short periods (e.g. for a meal, coffee, movie, conversation, etc.) but they should depart by 11pm. Guest visitors should park on the street and should not bring pets or children.
