Lovely Room in Very Tasteful House

Ad ref# 2361830

This is written by Sven, the departing tenant:

Quiet residential area in a very safe neighbourhood. Stone’s throw from Lea River canal, Hackney/Walthamstow/Tottenham Marshes all very close with great links further afield. Great parks nearby - Springfield, Abney, Clissold all phenomenal in summer or winter. Short walk to Stoke Newington Church St with great shops & cafes & pubs & small business. Giant Morrisons, Sainsbury’s & Asda all in the neighbourhood.

Short walk/cycle to Dalston Jctn or Hackney Central, two overground stations within 5-10min radius on foot, 10 minute bus hop to Piccadilly Line.

Like many older houses there are one or two idiosyncrasies and lots of character, but everything important is in good shape: sturdy, warm & dry in winter, well ventilated & easy to keep cool in summer. Top floor where room is situated is the warmest place I lived in London.

Common areas recently painted, draught blockers recently installed on sash windows. New Boiler 1y ago. Gas hobs in kitchen, powerful oven, new fridge (with built in water/negroni dispenser), plenty of shelves & pantry space. Two bathrooms., one with a bath.

Housemates all late 20s to mid 30s, all young professional or post-grad students.

Nice easy going household, all keep our own schedule but occasionally have a big meal together etc for occasions. Green fingers welcome. All diets welcome.

We have a cleaning rota, we clean up after ourselves in the kitchen, always check before having visitors etc and we respect one another’s space/privacy, which isn’t hard in a house this big. There are a few minor house rules just to maintain the peace but all basic common sense. Even in lockdown doesn’t feel like we’re treading on each other.

Renting off private landlord very convenient, no agency to deal with. Very fair, straightforward, amenable and good with repairs etc. Even sent us a case of Prosecco for Christmas!

Skylight in the stairwell - not currently opening but access to the roof when it is. Really good clothes-drying area.

The Room:

Very warm and cosy, south-west facing with 2 windows for fantastic light, especially in the afternoon. Nice 3rd-floor views over neighbourhood gardens and rooftops toward the setting sun. Great airflow in hot summer months, situated at the back of the house far from the street so very quiet.

Not a gigantic room if you have a ton of stuff, but very light & airy with lots of sky out the windows, great in-built storage & shelves, clothes-rack, extra space under the bed and a workspace looking out of the window. Plenty of power sockets for all your devices.
Another note on size - I’m 6ft and spent every lockdown here without feeling cooped up. With the right layout there was room enough for yoga but the housemates don’t mind if you use the lounge either.
Current layout makes it a very natural and comfortable space to read, work, relax and generally spend time.

Anyway please get in touch if interested and we can arrange an interview/tour over video call. We're all welcoming and talkative, but very respectful of each other's spaces. If that sounds like that'd be the kind of vibe you are into, let us know and come for a viewing!
