Double room in Quiet, Victorian house
We have a room become free in our Victorian, terraced house.
Initially short term, but happy to extend long term if you are a good fit.
The room is fully furnished, with a double bed, television, wardrobe, bookcase, desk and chest of drawers.
We have all you need to survive, including a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and internet.
There is a large, shared living room, separate dining room and garden.
You can be as sociable or reclusive as you wish, as long as you are quiet and considerate.
Looking for someone with common sense and the skills to recognise tasks that need doing around the house. We operate a clean as you go and leave things as you find them system in the communal/shared areas.
We keep the house very clean. Particularly the kitchen, as I do a lot of recipe testing. So, would best suit a naturally tidy person.
I am an Aussie, ex teacher, turned chef. So, there are often goodies to be sampled. I sometimes work from home, have a gardening business and also do some volunteering with a refugee charity.
You will be sharing with Noah, a recent law graduate, Louise, a graphic designer and myself.
My partner will sometimes stay over, but I balance this by also staying at hers in Kent.
You are welcome to join us anytime at our local for a few pints to watch the Hammers being slaughtered, or for no reason at all.
We also enjoy eating out together to explore local food businesses.
We would prefer someone who is not a huge meat eater. Veggie not essential. Not looking for anyone who uses a lot of hot oil in their food preparation (apart from roast dinners of course!) Or, starts cooking very late.
Bad experiences in the past of cooking smells lingering.
Considerate bathroom users only please, as we have a shared bathroom upstairs + extra toilet and sink downstairs.
Our aim is to be as green as possible by recycling, composting and being eco friendly.
So, someone who cares about the environment and their carbon footprint would be awesome. Tree hugging not essential.
We also have a #notmycat, who likes to sleep in a box in the shed and screech at the back door for his crunchies. We do not encourage him inside the house though. He is great for backyard cuddles if you need a cat fix.
We think of our home as a quiet sanctuary. If you are looking for a party house, this is not the room for you .
Close to Stratford, Canary Wharf, London City airport and Excel centre.
Zone 3 but walking distance to zone 2 stations (Stratford, Canning Town). Excellent transport links to Central London being close to District, Hammersmith and city, Jubilee and Central lines. Two tube stations ten minutes walking distance away. Also, DLR and overground, including a night bus.
This is an LGBQT + friendly household.
No numpties, planks, or door slammers please.
I am often away researching recipes (okay, traveling), so someone responsible and mature is essential.
Rent is inclusive of all bills and council tax.
Strictly non smoking household.
Just looking for a decent person who also thinks of others, not only themselves…more difficult than it sounds.
Happy to answer any questions.
