It’s not often that you get to talk about how cute a rental house is — or how much charm it has — but this Midland rental home we’ve found is cute as a button and full of design features you don’t often associate with a rental home.
And you see it right away in this house at 107 Ridglea Drive. From the charming blue and white exterior to the den with a wood-burning stove and incredible beam and board ceiling, you know this two-bedroom, one-bath rental is something special.
And look at those wood floors throughout — they’re original to the home, as are the numerous built-ins. And all that natural light is great, too.
There’s an ample (although not updated) and thoroughly serviceable kitchen, and a formal dining room as well.
And for a smaller house, it has all kinds of storage — in fact, one bedroom has three closets, and the garage has built-in shelving and a loft. And can we talk about all the room? Two living areas, a spacious kitchen, and a roomy bathroom give a renter way more than most apartments.
Combine that with a big backyard, and this is a dream rent home.
With current median rents in Midland standing around $1,090 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,370 for a two-bedroom, and with those rental rates continuing to rise (they’re up 3 percent over last month, and are up by almost 26.4 percent compared to this time last year), this Midland rental home — with its extra space, backyard, and garage parking — may be priced a little higher than average, but is still a bargain.
