Modern-Vintage Houseshare off Mill Road
we are advertising a Double Room FOR A MEDIUM LET in our sleek modern-vintage houseshare in Petersfield. The room is being sublet for 1-2 months (late Nov - early / late Jan or a bit longer) while our housemates is travelling. Cat-Lovers and girls strongly preferred, as we already have one guy in the house share.
The location is fantastic: 5 min to AR uni, 5 min to Mill Road, 3 min to the Beehive, 10 min to the trainstation, 15 min to the Grafton Center, 5 min to the Hot Number Cafe (should I go on?)
But a word of warning: if you are into bog-standard, non-descript, short-term rentals this place is not for you :)
The house was just renovated is fully kitted out with wood flooring, a new kitchen and bathroom and sleek modern-vintage furnishings throughout.
The kitchen features a cool brick wall, Skandi-type wood cabinets, hexagon flooring, copper fixtures and a cozy dining area.
The living room has an original Parker Knoll sofa suite, topped off with a copper sputnik chandelier (what else, right?).
The bathroom combines new-retro gold fixtures with art-deco tiling and botanic decorations (bring it on!).
Jokes aside, there is also a massive garden with a 2 tier terrace to lounge on and a natural garden behind with lots of trees, flowers and a pond with active frog inhabitants.
The garden-facing room comes in at £690 per month and is furnished with a sleek bamboo work station, a double bed, a double wardrobe, a drawer and a book case. It's on the first floor and has probably the best garden view in the street - 30m of unspoilt nature with lush trees, beautiful bushes and flowers (TAKEN)
The street double is a bit larger and has a wood double bed, a built-in wardrobe, 2 vintage drawers, a Skandi-style desk + chair and original book shelves. The room is also on the 1st floor with a nice view across a quiet residential street and great day-light. (this one is taken)
The third double (£650) is the same size but on the ground floor. This room features 2-built-in cabinets with original book shelves, a desk and retro vintage dresser, a wardrobe and a double bed. (THIS ONE IS AVAILABLE )
Truth be told, this is my own room and I'm letting it out from now-ish to late January while I'm away (boohooo). But worry not, I will empty it out completely so that you can make yourself properly at home while I'm away :) This room would be ideal for a student / researcher / job starter between 25-31 years old who is here for a work / research stint. Having a girl would also be a preferred option :)
The rents are all inclusive of bills and council tax.
The ideal housemates would be postgrad students or postdocs/young professionals in their late 20s or early thirties.. We are looking for someone fun and chatty who is up for the occasional joint dinner, BBQ and coffees on the terrace, but who also respects other people's privacy and time to themselves when work calls. Other than that, it would be great if you had some houseshare experience, know how to keep common spaces tidy and are not opposed to a cleaning rota. It's also important that you are not just looking for a place to crash but a place to call home.
And if you were a Vegetarian, that would be absolutely fabulous but occasional meat-eaters will not be turned away :)
You would be sharing with a German PhD and Dutch Post-Doc.
Finally, our neighbour has cats, so if your worst nightmare in the morning is to see a ball of fur scratching a tree or lounging on the terrace, this is probably not the ideal place for you.
Any questions about the rooms or keen to come for a viewing just get in touch!
We are getting lots of emails, so it would be great if you could tell us a bit about yourself, what brings you to Cambridge and what you are looking for in a house share.
