Hi.

I'm looking for a Monday to Friday lodger for my peaceful and private attic room, which extends across the house in my three bed semi in the south of Sheffield. The room has it’s own staircase with a lockable self closing door at the bottom and is fully furnished with a comfortable double bed, large teacher style pedestal desk with office chair, super comfy leather armchair and footstool and a large walk in wardrobe. The room has its own mini fridge, microwave, hob, kettle and toaster.
The setup is ideal for someone who needs somewhere a few nights a week to relax or finish off the day’s paperwork, have a quick bite to eat and sleep after work.

There is a bathroom with toilet bath and shower (shared with me) on the first floor.

The room is available from 6pm on Sunday night until 6pm on Friday night. You wouldn’t need to strip the bed and / or clear the room most weekends unless I have visitors.

My previous lodgers say it's been the nicest room they've viewed. I’m happy to provide proof of rent if you would like to claim back living expenses.

It’s a semi-detached house on a cul de sac, I live on my own and don’t have a TV licence, radio or listen to music. I like books and building stuff! I’m about to switch to Virgin superfast broadband so internet access should be excellent and is included.

The attic room is really lovely and fairly newly decorated, The bathroom and kitchen are state of the art for the 1960’s but the rest of the house and garden is a bit of a building site at the moment. You are welcome to use the kitchen for in the mornings before work and in the evenings before 8pm but as it’s open plan with my living / office space I prefer to have downstairs to myself after then.
You are welcome to park on the drive if I’m not using it for storing / delivering building materials. There is also a secure walled back yard suitable for storing a bike.

The house is located on a hillside cul-de-sac in Norton Lees / Meersbrook. It's a pleasant area 2 miles from the town centre, university and station and ideal for commuting to Sheffield town centre or to Chesterfield or Dronfield. There's a bus stop at the end of the road that goes into town and the A61 main road is just 1/4 mile away.

There are several excellent pubs and restaurants 3 great gyms and 2 beautiful parks and a couple of local food shops within easy walking distance. I've lived here for 20 years and love it. In 10 minutes drive you can be out in the Peak District.

I'm looking for a quiet Sunday evening to Friday evening lodger who will be out at work during the day and who mainly keeps to themselves (as I do). I'm happy to have a chat over a cuppa or pint occasionally but if you're an extrovert looking for a house share or feel the need to let me know every time you come in or go out, then this probably isn't for you. If you are an introvert like me you'll understand why :-)

Please message me or text me if you have any questions or you'd like to arrange to view the room.

Cheers, Steph
