Large Cosy Room on Clapton Common, London E5

Ad ref# 15545242

A large cosy room with double-glazed double-windows on the first floor of a Victorian building, with a shared communal area that's in a building of six apartments all accessible by stairs from the ground floor.

There's a small common across the road with a pond, and a decent sized park that's less than 10 minutes away, where you'll be able to walk along a river that's lined with boats and barges.

There's use of a kitchen that has a cooker, fridge, microwave, and a washer dryer with views out to a communal garden. The bathroom is clean, cosy, and it has a handmade shower-head, although the bathroom tiles needs some minor attention. Despite that, its in an acceptable condition.

The room is South facing, and has a handmade double-futon style bed, a handmade open wardrobe with interior shelving, and plenty of hangers if required, so the room is perfect if you only have clothing and few small personal items such as plants, ornaments, a laptop/computer, and other similar relevant personal items.

There's use of a TV, DVD player, fibre optic broadband, a small radio-cassette player if required, a small IKEA desk with a lamp, two IKEA shelving units, two rugs, an ironing-board, an iron, and a column of 3 wall-shelves.

The room is white in colour with high ceilings, a large circular paper lampshade, and it could do with freshening up with a couple coats of paint by the right person that decides to stay for a while to feel at home, but it's currently in an acceptable living condition. The deposit against damages may be required, but it's not essential depending on your circumstances.

The room is for a single person only, but I don't mind visitors of 1 or 2 persons maximum, and unfortunately I will not be able to allow anyone to stay overnight. This might change after getting to know each other in 2-3 months after moving in.

I'm a quiet private person that cycles, runs, and I like to listen to music. I'm usually in a good mood, and I'd rather talk calmly about an issue or a dispute, and I'd genuinely prefer a professional, vegetarian female tenant purely because I have a young daughter (not currently living with me), but this preference is not essential for a tenant.

I don't use rude or offensive language, so I hope not to hear it being used as part of expressing a view or an opinion in a sentence or as part of a conversation.

I'd like to be/become and be seen as a friend, perhaps build a friendship too, and I hope not to be viewed or seen as a landlord. The perfect candidate should be sociable, willing to share an occasional meal, and not be reclusive or unfriendly.

This ad is more about providing the right person with a place to call home, and I hope to make this person feel safe and as comfortable as possible.

There's usually an interview process to ensure both parties are comfortable with each-other, but I won't rush into accepting the first person male or female that shows an interest in living with me, or will I be coerced into accepting a tenant based on their funds, mostly because this is the first time I've placed an ad via a property-type website and hope not to make a mistake etc. or waste anyone's time.

If we're made to feel uncomfortable or find we're incompatible living together, expect to be told and/or asked to look for a more suitable place.

I'm sure you'll like what you see if you decide to take a look, but the room has been taken.

Feel free to register your interest in a message though, but if you do not have a profile picture you will not receive a reply.

Kind regards, Paul
