(Posted 9/9/20) I’d like to find two fun, professional, non-smoking roommates to share it with me a beautiful, rambling house. The property is just north of Santa Fe, in the Bishop’s Lodge Road neighborhood and the property is 3.2 miles from Marcy Street’s iL Piatto Restaurant, and it is 14.7 miles from The Sopaipilla Factory in Pojoaque, NM. This gated, very private property is extremely well-landscaped and comes with a weekly maintenance crew. I have two people friendly dogs. One is a shy lazy, corgi girl, and the other is a skiddish, slightly fearful Rezzy dog, who I took in when his owner died. They are both afraid of cats. I am a voracious reader, scribbler, and cook. I am often on a writing deadline. The house is long enough, where my quiet life style might not bother anyone. I’d love to find one or two non-smoking roommates. If you are interested, please PM me your phone number and best time to talk. I do have a few photos of this potential rental. Rent is $5000. This will be split three ways if I find two roommates. Monthly utilities will run about $800 and we will split this three ways. Thank you. Rose Rajkovic, 505-469-3777.
