Apartment Duplexes for Rent!

by thaities, Rebecca V.

High walls separate the two distinct property apartments. Neither apartment can see, hear, or bother the other.

777 Parkview Drive, Twin Forks, Idaho, faces east. There are two enormous picture windows showing beautiful sunrises, and an unobstructed view of parks, ponds, and waterfalls rising upward to the plateau, all of which are peaceful to the eye.

Around this place is rich black soil, and there is a good water supply. The backyard is a private one-acre garden with rows of every vegetable imaginable, one of each kind of fruit, walnut, almond, and pecan trees, blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry bushes, flowers, and in the center a pond surrounded with a multi-colored rose garden.

This luxurious five-bedroom white apartment furnishes every comfort you ever dreamed of. It models the high ceiling of the living room after the Sistine Chapel with copies of Michelangelo’s paintings dazzling the eye.

The white marble floors and light-colored walls say vitality and freshness. Breezes bring scents of gardenias, jasmine, and honeysuckle in open windows.


666 Parkview Drive, Twin Forks, Idaho, faces west and rests on a
steeply-sloped, deadly rocky cliff. There are no bushes, trees, plants, or dirt because this apartment rests upon one huge rock. There is no scenery to speak of, but fiery sunsets are visible.

This black apartment suits people who prefer seclusion, who do not want to tend to a yard, or have animals. No one will disturb those hosting parties where drugs, alcohol, gambling, and carousing occur.

This is an unfurnished five-bedroom, non-air-conditioned soundproof rather warm place suitable for rich, connected, political people with agendas, and high powered skimpy-clothed meetings.

Black baseboards and floors set off the painted interior walls and ceilings that are in various shades of red, orange, and yellow. Creature comforts are unnecessary, therefore not included.
