Stunning spacious double room in central location
Hello, I am looking for a nice, reliable professional to share my home with. I'd prefer someone who is quite self-contained but likes having a cuppa and a chat, play cards, a glass of wine, or a game of tennis or beach trip!
The room is a beautiful and peaceful space, with a scandi/minimal style. It is fully furnished (non-negotiable), with a double bed, memory foam mattress, and a large cupboard with hanging space and shelves. There is also built-in cupboards which is great for storing smaller items such as bags, books, shoes etc. There is extra storage under the bed, space to put a desk, and space downstairs for bikes, boards etc.
There is also an old armchair, a full-length mirror, and lamps either side of the bed on small upturned crates.
The room has been successfully rented as an Airbnb for 4 summers, so it is decorated to a high standard, and has been much appreciated - it has a light airy feel, with sash windows getting the morning light.
It's a great location, being a 1-min walk from the Co-op (open 7am til 11pm, Monday to Sunday), and also walking-distance into the countryside. It's also a great location in mid-Cornwall, being 20min drive to Padstow, Wadebridge and Newquay, about 25-30min to Truro, and 10min off the A30 (obviously longer in summer).
Much like other places in central town, there isn't allocated parking, but you can always park outside to load/unload things, and then find a space in town or a coupla mins walk down the hill. Being in central and 1min to the shops, offsets the parking walk.
The nearest beach is Watergate Bay (15mins), and Newquay, Mawgan Porth + Harlyn Bay are 20mins. If you like the gym, it's about 7min to Atlantic Reach.
The shared space is the scandi-beach style kitchen/living room, which is the heart of the home, with 2 comfy sofas (with blankets), table & chairs, and a well-equipped kitchen. There is a large fridge/freezer, microwave, and washing machine & dryer.
There is also a hall/entrance room which is largely used for storage. Bikes/surfboards etc also welcomed here.
The bathroom has a bath & shower (good pressure).
The price is £550 for a single person and this includes most bills - council tax, broadband, water. The only exception is the gas/electric bill, because the bills add up due to single glazing/old house - the price of living in a beautiful place! Prices this winter have been around £125/month total. In the summer it's usually half the winter rate, but with energy price fluctuations who knows. I am with Good Energy (ethical/clean energy supplier, so i don't exactly know why they'd charge much more if they use more renewable energy...). Hopefully it shouldn't be more than £50/each per month over the summer months.
References required, and 1 month deposit.
Professional, 30-50 preferred. Self-contained, but happy to chat/socialise sometimes. Clean, tidy, respectful non-smoker. No pets. I'd prefer someone who didn't work from home, as I work from home. Priority to people already living in Cornwall for 2+ years.
I am a DJ + music producer and work either at a venue or from home sometimes, as I have a room and studio at the top of the house. I don't tend to make much noise, although will sometimes (within reasonable hours, and you can't hear anything on the ground floor). I am also into spirituality, play tennis, do yoga and occasionally surf.
There is a chance in the future I may move out and let out the top room as well, but I'd make sure any new housemate would get on with the current housemate. :)
(pls ignore that it currently says 3 in the household, it cannot update, there is currently 1).
