I have a beautiful updated 2 bedroom on Federal Hill with 2 parking spaces, large granite kitchen, new systems including central a/c and super efficient hot water on demand. It's a 2nd floor, pet friendly, with a huge private deck and free laundry in the unit. It's $950/month, one month security, $200 pet deposit. Owners require a one year lease. It is NOT a 3 family either.
I am not a student, however we both work at colleges. Not looking to go south of Providence (Cranston, Warwick etc) but would go north...like Lincoln, Cumberland, maybe Pawtucket.
Hope that answered everything!
Ps. I really love updated kitchens. :)
Are you looking for a first floor unit, or does it not matter? Are you a student (seasonal/ temporary)? Are you a smoker? What are your thoughts about in-house laundry? What are requirements for parking - do you have a vehicle?
