This apartment is a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath apartment, approximately 1300 square feet + balconies. This apartment is the second floor of the main house in the quiet, residential, Fall Creek area below Cornell.
This apartment has hardwood floors, a tiled bathroom, and a massive stainless steel restaurant sink with pot sprayer and steel prep table. There is a side-by-side fridge. There is a full bath and a half bath. Provided furniture is plentiful. Luxury extremely high capacity washer and dryer are provided for free use by tenants.
Apartment 2 is well-suited for a quiet couple or individual or for three studious housemates. A couple or individual would find the apartment to be spacious and luxurious. The largest room in the apartment has doors and can be a giant bedroom or living room. The other three private rooms can be used as studies or bedrooms.
For three housemates (the most common tenants for this unit), the apartment is laid out very well for serious study. The largest bedroom has private access to the huge balcony, and the housemate using this room usually pays more, $850 per month, for example. The next largest bedroom is large enough for study and sleep, and the housemate there might pay $650. For $700, the third housemate would actually use two small rooms, one as a bedroom and one as an office.
A small family could also fit into this apartment, but noise tends to travel down to apartment 1 below. So tenants who pace the floor all night or have parties, or who like or play loud music will receive frequent complaints from below, and the manager of the apartments lives in apartment 1.
For these reasons, the tenants most happy with this unit tend to be Cornell graduate students who basically spend all their time eating, sleeping, and studying.
There are 6 apartments at 811 N. Tioga St. 4 in the main house, and 2 in a carriage house behind the main house. Apartment 2 (this apartment) is the second floor of the main house. The first floor is currently occupied by the complex manager and two Cornell graduate students, and the third floor will be occupied by a recent local graduate working locally, and single Mom with a child in the nearby elementary school. The carriage house is entirely occupied by Cornell graduate students.
Our neighborhood is a quiet, residential neighborhood with mostly small families or retirees, and neighbors get very upset about noise and parties. Also, 811 is a non-smoking property, with smoking prohibited by the lease in or around the apartments, anywhere on or near the property, or just prior to returning to 811. In other words, if you smoke, you might want to consider other apartments. We also do not permit dogs of any size, as our property has no grass. Other pets, such as cats are negotiable.
Showings are available with proper notice to current tenants, who are doing their best to keep get the apartment into showing condition. Please be assured that our manager, Thomas, will restore this apartment to pristine move-in condition as he does every year for incoming tenants. We definitely welcome tenants who know how to keep bathrooms and kitchens clean, such that the apartment will actually look attractive and desirable to future tenants.
