Description

Share a a really nice, 10 year old single story and full finished basement, energy efficient "Green Home" in High Plains Village, Loveland CO. Close to highway 25 and 34 access, shopping, and short walking distance to many lakes. Full basement suite with private bedroom and private bath, kitchenette and dining room. Main floor kitchen, basement rec. room and some garage storage area available (shared with owner)

Retired engineer owner-resident seeks some rental income and socially progressive and healthy lifestyle companionship. Some rent concessions for work possible.

This will be available Feb 1st 2017 Possible use of the full main kitchen and office for a suitable roommate. Excuse the mess in the basement photos; current tenant's stuff, will be gone when he is. Currently bedroom has an oversized king bed now but can be removed. Access will require use of stairs.

House Rules

House lot is elevated so everything is dry and flood-proof. Loveland would have to be 15 ft underwater before this place gets damp. One reason I selected this location. The neighborhood has a village feel rather than a Barracks feel as many other new developments do. Spacious, upscale, well maintained neighborhood with condos starting at 150k to million dollar homes. Very energy efficient, making it comfortable year round. I am a spoiled Californian, so I do not like a cold or hot home. Kitchen water is RO + charcoal filtered. I am very concerned with living in a healthy and unpolluted environment. So no smokers. No drinkers, Absolutely no drug users or any history of use (includes pot)
Home is very well maintained, and decorated, and I would like my roommate to help keep it that way. I bought this house last year and am still doing minor improvements but no more reconstruction.

Meet Joe

I am a 71 year old retired chemical and nuclear engineer, with sales and management experience. BS in chemical engineering. Divorced for 25 years. Children are professional, one a doctor (and CEO) and the other a marketing (VP and partner) executive, with no children and are not local.
Some multilingual skills. Moy russkiy kaput. Ich habe mein ganzes Deutsch nicht vergessen. Moje české jazykové znalosti jsou rovněž chudé. I am a history buff with analytical tendencies. Satirical and sarcastic humorist. No musical talents or skills, but I do have a Yamaha keyboard downstairs, so teach me. I read articles on the Internet for a couple of hours a day. I like reading history and documentaries. I also enjoy and have a big collection of old classics, foreign, and Indie movies. I am social as well as analytical.
Was an independent until Bernie, then became an active Bernie supporter. Because of DNC actions against Bernie and other progressives, I re-registered as a Green. Promoter of healthy eating and lifestyle alternatives to gain real health and avoid the pharmaceutical companies' poisonous concoctions. I was athletic when young and I have a Bow-flex in the basement. My elliptical is upstairs because I use it everyday, but I am definitely no longer in shape.

I may be getting older but my brain still works well and I would like a similar skilled companion. Even though I am a former multi-sport athlete, I am not a macho or construction type, and would prefer softer or feminine attitudes, as well as intellectual companionship. Must be pleasant, reliable, and responsible, with good credit and references. Will require background check.
