Hitchin: Double Room £450pcm
Hitchin: Double room in friendly, fully furnished 4 bedroom detached house. Near Hitchin railway station. Share all facilities. Includes wireless broadband, 55” TV, large garden, parking and cleaner. No bills. The room has a nice view to the front of the house.
We are looking for a friendly and sociable person for our house in Hitchin who wants to be part of the group of housemates who support each other. I have a double room available as one of the housemates has recently got a place with his girlfriend. You will need to be open-minded and tolerant as people from all walks of life are welcome here. Although we are sociable there are no wild parties here, it is a calm and relaxed house! Finding a room is a two-way process so when you come to view you can see if you like us and we will choose someone we think will fit in. We come with references too: see below! Send a message through the system.
The house is about 15 minutes’ walk from the railway station and about 20 minutes’ walk to the town centre. It is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with parking available at the front of the house – you would have your own space! I have a large and leafy garden with tables and chairs outside. There is available some limited storage space in the garage and loft.
The house is fully furnished and equipped with 55” plasma TV, wireless broadband internet, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine and dining table. There are venetian blinds throughout. The bathroom has a bath and shower and there is an additional cloakroom. We have a cleaner for communal areas but not individual bedrooms. It is a non-smoking house. We have a cat called Blanca.
There are four other housemates: two British, one Portuguese and one French. One of the guys works in Luton in airport operations. The second housemate is a tour leader. The third housemate works in distribution in Letchworth. The fourth housemate works in an office. I am a teacher although I work mainly abroad these days.
The rent is £450 per month payable by standing order and there is a deposit of £450. There are no bills to pay. I would like at least one reference from a previous landlord in writing. The house would suit a professional person looking to stay for at least 6 months, ideally for someone who wants a room only for weekdays. I require one month’s notice of leaving. The deposit is repayable within one month of leaving.
Hitchin is a quaint market town in Hertfordshire which is convenient for trains to London and Cambridge (both 30 minutes) and has close access to the A1(M) and London Luton airport.
Reference from Italian housemate:
I have lived there for about one year and 3 months. I can tell you that that time was the most beautiful time I ever had in this country. The ambient in the house is like a big family, everyone helps each other or when you need some advice they are always happy to help you. If you love cooking that's the right place for you to live, no doubt at all. I miss that place a lot and very often I go to vist them.
If you decide to go there that's is the right decision for you.
Reference from current housemate:
This place has a very good location , nice common space, big garden or low rent fee. What makes this place special is the atmosphere that makes you want come back. Friendly landlord and housemates, dinners enjoyed together with glass of delicious wine, warm fresh cake on Sunday afternoon or some attention from the 'housecat'. If you're seeking all of that, that's the place to find it.
