Cosy double room &friendly house available now

Ad ref# 47634

Friendly home - We cook for each other every 2 or 3 weeks and include people who have lived here, it's a great group. Ideal base for those new to Birmingham. Looking for a warm and laid back person who likes living with other people rather than eating in their room all the time. But not a party house!

Well furnished home not just a rented space. Big kitchen with table, plus dining room and sitting room downstairs with wooden floors. Rent includes fortnightly cleaner, the kitchen has a dishwasher.

Regular frequent buses to town and to University and QE.

It’s a small double room at the top of the house. It's quiet with a view over the rooftops. It’s cosy, with a sloping ceiling. The room has a wardrobe, shelves, chest of drawers plus under the bed. There’s a surprising amount of storage. Repainted and new wool carpet a couple of months ago.

Kings Heath is a neighbourhood with lots of cafes and life. It's a very quiet area & only a 5-minute walk from the Hare and Hounds, a wonderful pub with live music. Also near to Kings Heath park where the Kings Heath running club meets.

Shared rooms are kept clean and tidy. We take it in turns to do the dishwasher/ take out the rubbish.

The other housemates apart from me are Chris, a male PhD student and Celina a female student. Celina is a German Erasmus student and living with us until December. (Some of the time, there's an extra housemate, often European post-grad students, who come for a month or two.) Shared bathroom for you, Chris and Celina plus downstairs loo.

There's a friendly cat Frankie - realistically you need to like cats!

Usual mod cons and amenities including unlimited wireless broadband, Netflix, dishwasher, microwave and large fridge and large freezer. We have a fortnightly cleaner, cost included.

Rent includes council tax, water rates and TV licence, line rental and broadband. We split bills for gas/electricity only. Approximate cost of this is £30 a month, less in the summer. Deposit is one month's rent, payable in advance to secure the room. (Or zero deposit scheme if you prefer - zerodeposit dot com)

Non-smokers only, please.

Come round, have a cup of tea, see the house and meet us.
