Huge double room in lovely Victorian house
Huge double room (4m X 3.3m) available with gorgeous bay window and original wooden floors. Sharing with just one other (me) so the rent is not just for the room but for share of an entire house.
The room boasts plenty of space to add a desk (should you be working from home), a storage bed with new cushion top mattress, built in shelving and plenty of additional cupboard space..
You will be sharing with myself, a professional woman in my early 40s and my three friendly cats. I am easy going and sociable yet respectful of your space and time. I’m looking to find a professional who wants a home, not just a house. Someone who likes animals, understands the etiquette of living with others, who is clean, tidy, respectful and enjoys a chat over a drink and a meal. I love cooking, music, travel, fashion, architecture and design. I adore dining out and finding new amazing places to eat.
I am a pescatarian but happy to live with a meat eater or vegan alike. I'm a non-smoker and it is a no smoking house however smokers are welcome if you are happy to only smoke in the garden.
The house has a great sized, kitchen/diner with dishwasher and all appliances/utensils, separate living room with attached bright, light sunroom. There is a big bathroom including a bath, should you be a bath lover. There is also large, paved garden with mature plants outdoor furniture and a BBQ. Perfect in the summer for relaxing and socialising with friends.
Other amenities include fast WiFi, washer, dryer and garden shed and loft (for additional storage).

There is a great corner shop/off license less than 1 minute from the house, perfect for grabbing a bottle of beer/wine or if you run out of milk. 5 minutes away you will find a Sainsbury’s local, Nisa, great local restaurants and coffee shops plus the Hither Green Hotel, which has a fantastic beer garden in the summertime.
Lewisham Shopping Centre is a 10 minute walk from the house where you will find major stores such as TK Maxx, Marks and Spencer, H&M, Argos, Sainsbury’s and Boots. There is also a daily food market where you can buy fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood incredibly cheaply. Three major gyms: Pure Gym, Anytime Fitness and The Gym London, a More Yoga studio plus multiple other smaller fitness studios. Also walking distance from the house are an additional large Sainsbury’s and a Lidl.
