Sunset from the lounge balcony

Friendly and chilled flat-share. Large, bright double room with a fantastic, panoramic view of the London skyline and a big lounge and balcony that overlooks a communal garden. Excellent 24-hour transport links.

This is a decent place to live during lockdown - there's lots of space in the flat, plenty of natural light in your room, a balcony, big skies and loads of shops and stores nearby. Only 30 minutes to Oxford Street by public transport. Plus Clapham Common, Brockwell Park, Tooting Common and Balham are all within easy walking distance.

There are heaps of pubs, bars, restaurants and shops in Brixton and Clapham for when restrictions are finally lifted.

There's a handy Tesco Express directly over the road which is open seven days until 11pm.

You'll have exclusive use of your own full-size bathroom with bath + shower, so no queues.

There's plenty of space for you to put a desk in your room if you need to work from home. And you can share work-space at the table in the lounge when you need a change of scene, so you don't have to be stuck in one room all day.

***Since jobs are uncertain, this could be a short let - i. e. leave at any time with a month's notice - though you are welcome to stay as long as you like***

ABOUT THE ROOM/FLAT:
The room has a double divan bed (with big storage drawers) and mattress. Plus a massive built-in wardrobe with a ton of storage space, and a large chest-of-drawers. There's room for a desk and still plenty of room left over to move around.

You'll have a large shared lounge, which has a balcony with a view from which you can have a few drinks and see the sunset, and it overlooks the communal garden.

There's unlimited fibre broadband internet and all the usual mod cons including a washing machine that also dries clothes.

ABOUT ME:
I like going out but I'm pretty chilled and sociable when home. So this isn't a party flat, more of a place to relax after enjoying yourself in the Smoke. But it would be good to live with someone fairly sociable who's happy to share some drinks now and again. At the same time, if you like to be left to your own devices, that's fine with me.

As for interests I like technology, gaming, going out/bars, listening to music (dance/electronic) and fitness.

I like to keep the place reasonably clean, at least when it comes to food mess, so I'm looking for someone who is happy to clean up as they go in the kitchen.

I follow a plant-based diet, but it's totally ok if you don't, I've mainly shared with omnivores!

ABOUT YOU:
Friendly, drama-free and responsible is all I'm really looking for, plus a non-smoker. Apart from that, you don't have to take life too seriously!

Sorry, but the room isn't available to couples.

COSTS:
Room £800 per month including all bills, with no extra costs. This includes electricity, heating, water, council tax, TV licence and broadband.

The deposit is £700.

TRANSPORT:
The flat is in Zone 2 for transport. You'll be a short bus ride from Brixton and Clapham tubes (both Zone 2). The bus stop is 3 minutes' walk from the flat and the buses to the tube run about every half minute, and it takes 10mins to get to the underground.

As an example, from the property you can get to Oxford Circus in 30 mins, Victoria in 20 mins, Clapham in 10 mins etc. Locally, Streatham High Street, Streatham Station, Balham and Tulse Hill are also nearby.

PARKING:
You could apply for a Lambeth Council Resident's parking permit which is instantly valid from the day you apply. This allows you to park your car anywhere within a large zone of surrounding streets. I could also put you on the waiting list for a parking space in the building's underground car park.

NEXT STEPS:
If you're interested, please drop me an email telling me a bit about yourself and whether you think this flat will be OK for you! I'm happy to answer any questions you might have :)

You are allowed to move home during lockdown and I'm happy to do either a physical viewing or a video-viewing or both!
