Sunny double room in huge flat with terrace
Our flatmate is sadly leaving us and we have a double room available in our huge flat in the Balham/Clapham South area from the end of March. We're three friendly girls (two English and one Irish) who often have dinner and watch tv together or go out for drinks when not in lockdown. We're also happy to give each other space and do our own thing. We’re clean and tidy but not obsessively so. One of us has lived here for over 5 years, which is a great sign 😊. As for wfh, we're 2 teachers and a scientist and we'll be mostly at work from now on, so there's space for someone to work at the dining table during the week.
The flat is spread over the top two floors of a large Victorian house. It has a living room AND a dining room. Both are huge and nicely furnished. We have Netflix and Now tv set up in the living room. Bills are about £90 per month each, which covers everything including WiFi and even general flat stuff. There are two bathrooms and a separate toilet, so there’s never a queue! Both bathrooms have showers; one has a massive shower and the other has a bath. The kitchen has the usual amenities including a new washing machine and a new oven. We have our own private terrace downstairs, newly done up and south-facing so great for BBQs when the evenings start getting longer!
The available room is on the first floor overlooking our south-facing patio. It has a gorgeous feature fireplace and a large double bed with space underneath. It also comes with a large chest of drawers, another tall one, a long mirror and a bedside table. The current flatmate is moving out on the 27/28th of March so it's available from then onwards and we're looking to fill the room by at least the 6th of April so there's some flexibility. It's a 2-year lease from April so the rent won't go up!
The area is lovely and feels really homely. Balham has all the brunch spots you could want; a huge Sainsburys & Waitrose, an Aldi, a fruit & veg market, and a great nightlife. It's in between 3 commons, perfect for walks and picnics in summer. It’s a 5 min walk from the high street and a 10 min walk from Balham tube (northern line) and the train station. On-street parking is also available. The Devonshire is our local and we're right next to Hayman's gin distillery. Both have lovely outside space too so we can’t wait for Lockdown to end!
Thanks for reading and if you’re interested drop us a message.
