Beautiful and Comfortable Housing

Although Longview is on the upper end for a graduate student's budget, the comfort and enjoyment my partner and I get from this home is incomparable. I have lived in Boston many years and this is the nicest place I have lived; we picked it with the intent of staying here long-term. The apartments have lots of space, allow pets, have full carpeting, have full and updated kitchens that are perfect if you love to cook, large/spacious bathrooms, walk-in closet, large windows providing lots of light, and only a 15 minute walk to Brandeis campus. We also rent a parking space for my partner's car; indoor parking can easily be added to the rent for $85/month or you can add yourself to a wait-list for outdoor parking for $25/month. Although the rent is higher than other apartments, this parking is a great deal cheaper than anything you can find closer to Boston. Shopping in the Waltham area is also generally cheaper than being closer to Boston. All utilities and heat/air conditioning are electric so the electric bill can be a little high some months (has ranged from $60-$115); having full control of heat and A/C though is extremely nice. You also have to pay for the water bill, but this is typically pretty low (has ranged from $30-60). If you have a car, these apartments are also very close to Moody St, which has lots of great restaurants. If you ever want to take the commuter rail it is about a 25 minute walk. There is also a shuttle that you can take to and from Brandeis. There is also a concierge that handles all packages and in addition to the gym there is also space for entertaining or hanging out within the the apartment complex. Overall, I think this apartment is ideal if you're looking to share a space with a partner; otherwise, the price is not really within the graduate student budget.
