This old house was most recently home to four seniors who graduated in May. It features high ceilings, a bat cave and “purgatory.”

See what the 2011-12 residents had to say about living on Woodland here.

The roommates were immediately attracted to the fireplace, molding and ceilings in the house. The decorations on their walls, one roommate said, are the “rotating collection on loan from St. Francis Thrift Store.”This middle room is nicknamed “Purgatory” because “all we do it pass through it,” one resident said.One roommate brought this shower curtain, which turned out to be the perfect way to frame pictures.Coordinating bathroom schedules isn’t hard during the week, but on the weekends two or three roommates will squeeze in the small space.The roommates have frequent impromptu house dinners, although limited counter space is problematic.However, ample storage space allows each roommate her own shelf.The back room off the kitchen is the perfect space to store everything the roommates don’t need.The roommates spent a few days last fall arranging art they’ve collected since their freshman year.The annex off the back bedroom is known as the “Bat Cave”— and has become a mini-bedroom for one of the roommates.This tiny single bedroom has been arranged three different ways over the course of the year.The front bedroom backs up to the front porch, where the roommates gather on warm nights.The residents keep their feet cool with the kiddie pool they set up in the backyard.
