Are you looking for a social living place where there is a communal interest in the property and each other, including a cat? Then, look no further!
Near the center of Maastricht in Wyck, an international co-housing project is located. And we have a room available! Within this beautiful house, 6 members (aged 25-40, originating from different countries) live together with a shared responsibility for the house and its finances. The house itself has 3 floors, 3 toilets, 2 bathrooms (including a bath!), a shared living room and a big kitchen which is connected to a spacious garden.
You'll get 2 separate unfurnished rooms.
Details: located on Sterreplein, Maastricht
Cost for an unfurnished room: +/- 350 € all inclusive (gas, water, light, high-end wifi) with a 1000 € deposit. You pay contribution, not rent. There is no landlord, the house is subscribed at the KVK as an association. Plus, we believe in contribution in 2 ways: money (low contribution) + effort by giving your time and skills.
What you get: - a superior location in city center for a very low price. Peaceful, yet lively (students live here around) - a garden - chance to decide for yourself if you want to socialize or not. At least, chance is low to feel lonely - you level up your skills in managing a house & team, communicating and leading meetings, setting boundaries, picking tasks yourself which you wánt to do. But above, you get chance for taking responsibility & learn how your managing skills impact others - a cleaning lady - people around you whom you can network with or who can help you out (in the past we’ve shared cars, materials, food)
What the house needs: - Age: 25-40, no couples who want to live together throughout the week, or parents (better fit elsewhere :)) - a working person and staying in Maastricht for > 1,5 year. Open to take a board role, somewhere in your staying period here - experience with living independently (e.g. during student time) - necessary for continuity of the association: subscription of your name and address at the municipality on this address - being present for 2hrs per 6 weeks of house meetings to update each other on house tasks + invest 1hr/week for your team role - do 1 weekly house chore (gardening, instant fixing, arranging companies for long term maintenance tasks, groceries, bring garbage to recycling post) - being present on 6 do-it-yourself days during the year (planned on Sunday or Saturday). We do maintenance chores together.
So, still interested in sharing your skills and living together? Send us an e-mail at email@example.com why you think you suit our community and what you’re planning to do in Maastricht for upcoming > 1,5 years. We know we cannot expect people to plan ahead, but we’re curious about your intentions about work/social life in Maastricht for your future.
We have a slight preference for a girl as we are currently 2 girls and 3 guys. But guys please also apply!
