Spacious double in 3 bed garden flatshare
We are Anita and Shan, looking for a 3rd person to join our homely flatshare. It’s a lovely garden flat on two floors, on a quiet residential street in between Hackney Downs and London Fields. Anita has lived here for 10+ years and Shan moved in in Oct (through friends of friends). It is located just 4mins walk from Hackney Downs station and 7mins walk from Hackney Central station. Dalston Junction/Kingsland are also nearby. There are lots of shops, bars, cafes etc to enjoy once they reopen.
The room available is a really big double room, looking out onto the garden, quiet and bright. It's large enough that there is space for a big desk and something like a yoga mat if you want to exercise at home, with room to spare. It is mainly unfurnished (no bed) but we can help with this as Anita in particular has friends/contacts with furniture. There are two built-in wardrobes so great for storage, shelves and wooden floors.
We have a well-equipped kitchen with everything you need, a large separate double living room and dining room, giving us lots of space during lockdown. We have a small toilet downstairs and full bathroom upstairs - good pressure and lots of hot water! We also have a large garden and have a good relationship with neighbours and the landlord. Bikes can be stored in the garden.
The rent for the room is £750 which includes water rates, but not bills. Bills roughly work out £130 ish pcm each. The monthly breakdown for bills per person is as follows - council tax, electricity, gas, broadband (roughly £100), fortnightly cleaner (£20), netflix (£5) and shared kitty (eg. £5-£10 for loo roll, cleaning products, shared kitchen items).
Anita is a freelance creative producer nicknamed by friends as the oracle of random information ie sourcing objects and producing items for displays/events & shoots. She enjoyed going to cinema most weeks and art galleries, now it’s just long walks & watching Netflix. Shan is an art therapist working with young people and these days in her spare time likes riding her bike, concocting recipes and taking pictures. Previous life involved going to galleries, climbing and swimming, but now it’s just long walks and watching Netflix with Anita! In terms of working from home, Anita is freelance so is in and out; Shan is back to working in school in March and recently had the vaccine. We are quite a creative and social household but you don't need to be, sometimes we do things together, help each other out, equally happy doing our own thing. The main thing for us is to find someone friendly and easygoing and have a calm, relaxing home where we all feel at ease. In normal times we might have people over for the odd dinner or movie but it’s not a party house. We’re open to having a chat re all things covid as it’s important to be on the same page and feel comfortable.
Ideally we would love somebody 30+, a non smoker, sorry no pets. Anita is veggie, Shan is an occasional meat eater, so veggie or leaning in that direction would be a bonus. If interested or any questions, please get in touch and share a bit about yourself in order to arrange a virtual viewing.
