Room to Rent in Victorian Period Terrace
This large Victorian terrace house contains many period features and was completely renovated in 2016. Currently the house is occupied by myself, my partner, and one other lodger.
There is a double bedroom available to rent from the 8th of November located on the second floor. The spacious room contains a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside table, and desk with chair. The room is south facing and a large roof window provides plenty of natural light. There is a bathroom on the second floor exclusively for the shared use of the two lodgers. The lodgers also share the kitchen and living room on the ground floor with myself and my partner.
As a household, we’re a friendly and pretty geeky bunch. The living room contains an extensive and ever-growing collection of boardgames and Magic cards, which we regularly crack open at the weekend. Another beloved household activity is the religious watching of Anthony Bourdain’s back catalogue. I also host a weekly Dungeons and Dragons game for a group that includes my partner and the current lodger. Of course if none of that appeals, we’re equally as ready to just have a chat over one of the endless cups of tea and coffee made in the kitchen.
The house is about a forty five minute walk or a fifteen minute bike ride from the University. There are good public transport links into the City Centre, with a bus stop just outside the house and many options for cycle routes into the City Centre, including a cycle highway and a route along the canal.
The house backs onto a small park owned and maintained by the residents of the surrounding houses. We’re currently in the process of creating a wildflower border, so if you’re interested in urban gardening and habitat creation for wildlife, this is the place to be. There is a park with sports fields and a play park opposite the house, across the main road, along with allotments and a community run golfcourse. There is a Tesco’s and a Wilkinson’s five minutes walk down the road, for your food and other essentials. The centre of Armley is also nearby, with a variety of shops, cafes, a sports centre, and a library. We can particularly recommend the butchers and the Polish bakery. The wider Armley area has a fantastic craft brewing scene, with Anthology and Wilde Childe within walking distance. They, along with the Porterhouse Bakery, regularly hold pop up events, which we can very much recommend.
Bills, including gas, electricity, council tax, broadband, and water, are shared equally between all residents of the house and generally come to about £90pppm. The electricity and gas is provided by Flow, on a 100% renewable electricity plan.
