Homeshare - Cockfosters, EN4
Single bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space and use of separate bedroom and/or dining room for study/work. Shared bathroom, with additional separate toilet, and shared use of the living rooms in this large house, fully fitted kitchen and garden.
Wi-Fi and Netflix are available. A cleaner and gardener come to the home regularly.
Only a moments’ walk to the buzzing high street, Cockfosters Road, with its many shops and cafés, and only five minutes’ walk to Cockfosters tube station (Piccadilly line - 30 minutes in to central London).
We are very happy to offer this lovely opportunity to live affordably and comfortably in the heart of Cockfosters, in return for providing some practical support and companionship to an older lady.
In return for the low-cost accommodation (£199 per month), we are looking to match our older homeowner with a younger female sharer, who is happy to provide some companionship, and the reassurance and feeling of security that someone else is there at night.
Our homeowner, who is 90, is still quite active and independent. She is still driving and will pop out during the day to the shops or to see her family who live locally, and she cooks for herself every evening.
However, she finds it hard spending so much time alone at home, particularly in the evenings, and having become widowed within the last year after 70 years, she misses having the companionship of someone else at home to talk to, share an occasional meal or watch television with.
The ideal Sharer for this opportunity might be a masters or PhD student, or someone working partly from home, who is easy-going, quite self-contained, and happy to spend some time with our homeowner watching a good BBC drama (or possibly Coronation Street!), sharing a meal or even going to the cinema together.
There is a large garage for storage, and off-street parking is available.
We are looking to fill this opportunity very soon so please get in touch if it is of interest.
Cost £199 per month
