Sunny, spacious house available for rent in Longmont—lots of space at an affordable price

I will be on sabbatical over the next academic year and need someone to stay in my house in my absence. The house is available from July 2023 through July 2024.

It's located in Longmont and is a 30–40 minute commute to CU. The house gets lots of natural light, includes 3,000 square feet of usable space, and has a yard and a walk-out basement. I plan to use two bedrooms for storage space; however, there remains the master bedroom, two separate offices, an exercise space and elliptical machine and a small guest bedroom. The kitchen, dining room and living room are all connected and are located on the main level as well as a small balcony. The house can be rented fully or partially furnished.

The rent does not include utilities but will be well below market value. I am willing to rent at a loss for the assurance of having a trustworthy tenant, so references may be requested. This would be an ideal situation for a couple (graduate students, junior faculty, visiting scholars) with the option of adding an additional tenant if desired (or accommodating a child) in the guest room. I prefer arrangements that would cover the full year but would consider shorter periods if necessary.

Please contact me for further info. I would be happy to send pictures and eventually schedule a visit.
