Escape to Medici House: A Sanctuary for Writers and Artists

Tired of living in small, cell-like rooms? Frustrated by noisy, overcrowded living situations?

Welcome to Medici House!
Located in the quiet neighborhood of Yeonhui-dong, near Yonsei University in Seoul, Medici House offers a calm, spacious living environment. Built just 8 years ago, our residence provides modern comforts in a peaceful setting. Share this large home with just one other family, ensuring privacy and a cozy atmosphere.
Unlike impersonal dormitory-style buildings with small quarters, Medici House treats you not just as tenants, but as honored guests. I was once chosen as Super Host by Air BnB.

As a landlord and professional writer of children's ESL books, I have a special liking for writers, teachers, and especially artists who are proficient in using AI tools like ChatGPT. This is why I named it Medici House, after the 15th-century supporter of the arts, Medici, who backed great artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, igniting the European Renaissance. I aim to follow his spirit on a smaller scale, building a community of creative minds.

Features Include:
Location: 15-minute walk to Yonsei University North Gate, with convenient bus access.
Space: 30 square meters on the second floor, featuring a bedroom and living room.
Facilities: Private kitchen with induction stove, bathroom, air conditioning, washing machine, and internet access. A bed can be provided upon request.
Parking: Not available.
Monthly Rent: 850,000 KRW (approx. $620 USD)
Building Fee: None
Utilities: Charged based on usage
Deposit: 2,000,000 won (approx. $1,460 USD)
Minimum Rental Period: One year
Pets: Cats allowed
Extra Benefits: Access to a rooftop garden offering fresh vegetables year-round.
Special Opportunities for Writers and Artists: If you are a professional in the creative arts or education and can contribute to my writing projects, compensation will be provided based on your expertise.


American Singer-Songwriter:
"A wonderful place with a fantastic host! Medici House offers private entry and stunning visuals akin to the promotional photos. The expansive windows fill the apartment with sunlight, uplifting my spirits. Conversations with Mr. Lee have enriched my understanding of the Korean language. Thank you for a memorable stay!"

American Screenplay Writer:
"A unique opportunity to find such a pleasant rental and approachable landlord in Korea. The quiet, well-maintained environment is perfect for relaxation or creative work. Despite its upscale location, it's only an 8-minute walk to frequent bus service connecting to the subway. Mr. Lee's bi-weekly cultural talks provide invaluable insights into Korean traditions beyond any tour book.

Canadian Communications Professional:
"I lived at Medici House for almost two years and Mr. Lee was absolutely the kindest, nicest landlord anyone could hope for. When I needed help installing blackout curtains, he called the curtain shop for me and not only arranged a visit but even facilitated communication. When I hurt my ankle after work one evening, he kindly fed my cat for me and volunteered to come to the hospital to help me get home safely in a taxi. I often see his wife walking their sweet dog in the neighborhood, and his wife is very kind too. Unlike many other homes in Seoul, this one is equipped with a carbon monoxide detector and a smoke detector. Also, Yeonhui-dong is a pretty neighborhood with many cafés, and there’s a beautiful park about 10 minutes away from Medici House. Considering the size of the unit and the average cost of housing in Seoul, the rent is more than reasonable."

Available Starting August 1st, 2024.
