Room for Postgraduate student from November

Ad ref# 1690173

One room is available November 1 (can be negotiated): See Room 2 in the caption. You would be sharing with one female and two male flatmates.

Note that rooms are for students only.

Fortnightly cleaning of common areas by a professional cleaning company is included in the rent.

All bills are covered. This includes heating, water rates, electricity, fiber-optic internet, TV license, and fortnightly cleaning of common areas. There are no hidden extras.

The house is welcoming: nicely furnished and tastefully decorated, and comes with high-quality furniture. Apart from the stow-away foosball table it hardly looks like a student dig! There is also a brand new dishwasher, which is good to avoid kitchen conflicts. Gas hob and recent high capacity oven/range for those who like cooking and baking. Downstairs bathroom, and a small toilet upstairs. The separation of the dining room and living room ensures plenty of space and even separate gatherings! All bedrooms are on the first floor. A washing machine (without a dryer) is on the ground floor.

The house is situated in Bowburn, a short bus ride from Durham. Although some previous tenants prevailed, Bowburn is not really within walking distance from Durham, but, being on the bus route between Queen's campus (Stockton) and Durham campus, there is an express bus service (X12) to get you to either campus. The X12 bus, which stops 150m from the house, takes 10 minutes to get to the Durham university library/Palatine center, passing the university sports grounds (Maiden Castle) on the way, and it is free for staff and students at Durham uni. Free travel is limited to the X12 bus service--Just show your campus card to the driver and s·he will let you on for free! Biking is also perfectly feasible (15-20 minutes to the university sports grounds).

Free parking is always available within 20 meters of the front door and you can be on the A1 motorway within a minute (Durham South junction).

There is a supermarket (Coop) 50 meters up the road, and an NHS medical center can be found within a five-minute walk. There's even a village library! ;)

Rent is 320 pounds a month provided an 11-month contract (or longer) is signed. Shorter-term tenancies can be negotiated (the price will depend on the period). The rent reflects the distance to the center of Durham. That said, no one has ever complained about the distance to town; in part due to the good bus services.

Sorry, couples are not accepted for single-room occupancy. For tax purposes, the house can be let only to students.

Other relevant changes made the last year: new heating/hot water boiler system 2020, new dishwasher, 2021. New washing machine, 2021.

Thanks for reading to the end, and looking forward to hearing from you!
