One full bedroom and bathroom in a two bedroom apartment. There is a full kitchen and dining room. Bottled water, coffee, snacks, and fruit are always available. There is a treadmill, cable television, DVD, CD, and Internet access. The bathroom has a tub and shower. There are hundreds of books in the apartment. The building has a laundry room, $1.50 to wash, (down the hall), pool, and barbeque area. This building is a ten minute walk to CA State University Northridge and a thirty minute drive to Hollywood. The bus stop is one block away, and there are express buses to the train station and other destinations. I prefer no pets. Smoking is fine; there is a balcony area. The building is locked, patrolled by a security agency, and the maintenance crew is excellent.
This is a college neighborhood. It is a safe, friendly, suburban, family-oriented place. A lot of people walk and jog in the evening. The Fire Department is across the street--so there are occasional loud siren outbursts. The police department is about two miles away. The public library is one mile away, and the university has a large library; there are many activities to do on campus.The Valley Performing Arts Center is on the campus. There are major performers booked there. This building is on the major boulevard in the Valley that leads to several freeways.
There are many ethnic restaurants close by--such as Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Mexican, and Thai. The major grocery store (Vons) is one mile away. There are lots of fast food restaurants such as McDonalds Jack in the Box, and Carl's Jr. within walking distance. The Northridge Mall is one and a half miles away. It has the major department stores: Macys, JC Penney, and Sears. There are the major drug stores--Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aide, within walking distance. The public pool and park are a ten minute walk away.
I like things to be kept clean and things put back in their place. I don't like things to get lost or broken.
