The Suite @ SpringWater

SpringWater is not a rental... it is a City-recognized "home share" in a private residence. Surprisingly unlike any other home share or roommate arrangement in Pullman, you - as the "housemate" would not share any rooms or facilities with the homeowner. This is a not-for-profit living arrangement... the homeowner is not allowed by the City to make a profit. Learn More... (opens in a new tab or window)

1-Bedroom, 4-Room Suite
SpringWater is a large enough home at 5,000 sq.ft. and 20 rooms, that sharing space isn't an issue. The housemate's suite of four (4) fully remodeled rooms (a living area, a bedroom, a kitchen, and a bathroom) that were formerly maid's quarters, have a 636 sq.ft. footprint on the lowest level of the three level home. The rooms include a large 241 sq ft bedroom with sitting area and 108 linear feet of built-in bookshelves, a good-sized and well-appointed kitchen that rivals any found in high-end rental units and many private homes, a living/dining/study space, and a 3/4 bathroom. A step-in closet, walk-in closet with built-in drawers, and a laundry closet round out The Suite's footprint. Click on the "What it Looks Like" menu above for interior and exterior photos, and a floor plan of level 1 (floor plans of the other two levels are not provided for security reasons).

Location
SpringWater is located on Pullman's Southeast Pioneer Hill, within walking distance of WSU and downtown Pullman*. A bus stop with service to and from WSU and downtown is only one block from SpringWater**, and there are four nearby parks and playgrounds with baseball, tennis, and basketball facilities. It's a short drive (or slightly longer bus ride) to the Bishop Blvd. commercial district for groceries, pet supplies, a haircut, fast food, or a workout.

Privacy
Although this is a "shared" living arrangement, surprisingly there is far more privacy than any shared rental in Pullman - the housemate has a semi-private entrance, and their own partially furnished securable suite of rooms tucked neatly away from the homeowner's living spaces. No rooms or facilities are shared. Try to find any other "shared" living situation in Pullman where your housemate doesn't use, or even enter your living space.

Quality
Quality is stamped all over this 76-year old English Norman brick home, and the $120,000 remodel of The Suite is no exception. From the ceramic tile floors to the mahogany wood blinds, from the high-end appliances to the pricey colbalt blue pendant lights, quality is built-in. Click on the "What it Looks Like" menu above for interior photos, and click on "Before You Apply" for testimonials that confirm that the photos accurately reflect what is offered.

Amenities & Features
Amenities and features include (but are certainly not limited to) a private-to-Suite built-in high-speed Ethernet network, high-speed broadband connection to the Internet (plug into the existing hard-wired jacks or you provide your own WiFi router), hospital-grade surge-protected outlets, digital HD cable TV service with (upon request) a digital HD-DVR receiver (addl. $25/mo) (you provide your own TV or HD monitor), a semi-private brick patio with fireplace for housemate's use, shared BBQ grill (if available), and 1/2 acre of very private, secured and fenced yard and garden - enough room for lots of romping around. Click on the "What it Includes" menu above for a detail of the amenities, features, and facilities that are included.

Security
SpringWater sits within a 1/2 acre fenced and gated "compound" that includes motion-sensing lighting, thermal intrusion sensors, security gates on doors, and real-time hi-res CCTV (exact details to remain undisclosed). Interior "power loss" emergency lighting shows the way to safety during power outages.

Pets
SpringWater allows pets (1 dog, 1 dog and 1 cat, or 2 cats) with prior approval, a written pet agreement, and an additional pet deposit. Click on "Pet Policy" on the "Before You Apply" menu above to read about the pet policy.

This housing arrangement is no longer being offered, except to a short list of former housemates.

Encounters with three self-absorbed entitled Millennials forced a re-evaluation of this 18-year old housing arrangement. This included a narcissistic massage therapist from Western Washington, a complete waste of human skin and disrespectful mental eunuch from Ohio named Jake and his lying vile bully "father" Tim, and a fall-down-drunk sorority "girl" addict named Heather and her know-it-all bully husband (who obviously slept through real estate class).

Conclusion... this just isn't worth the torture of having to deal with pathetic people like this.

Good luck to the many decent people out there who are looking for housing.
