Charming ensuite room in Beeston Leeds LS11
I am a small private landlord who lets rooms in the house I own and live in in South Leeds. I have a nice room available now on the first floor which may suit you if you are willing to venture south of the river to Cross Flatts Avenue. I live in a self-contained apartment on the ground floor. The room is for a single non-smoker. No couples, sorry.
The room is quiet, clean and nicely furnished overlooking Cross Flatts Park park and my back garden. It has just received a fresh coat of white emulsion paint.
It has dark blue blackout curtains and green fitted carpet. It measures about 10’6” wide and about 15’ long (including the separate ensuite toilet with hand wash basin). It has a comfortable 4’ wide bed provided with all bedlinen, duvet and pillows. There is plenty of wardrobe hanging space, shelving and plenty of drawers and cupboard space, too. There is also storage space under the bed. There is a small desk with a comfy swivel office armchair. There is also a coffee table as well as an IKEA Poang cream leather easy chair. There is a terrestrial TV with an aerial socket in the room enabling you to receive Freeview. Bed linen and duvet etc are all provided. There are pictures and mirrors on the wall plus three table and desk lamps. Altogether a nice mix of attractive furnishings.
The bedsit has a central heating radiator and so has the ensuite toilet which is equipped with a WC, a pedestal wash basin, mirror, glass shelving, vinyl floor covering, mats and window blinds. There are three double glazed sliding sash windows in the suite.
There are 2 bedsits, a large kitchen and a large bathroom on the 1st floor and another three bedsits and a bathroom on the attic floor above which also houses the tumble dryer. This house is not short of bathing or laundry facilities! There is no competition for the bathrooms and kitchen facilities amongst the total of 5 housemates.
The minimum stay is for 3 months. After that one month's notice is all that is needed. This gives you considerable flexibility. The first month's rent is to be paid up front. No security bond is required. However, you are expected to return the room in the same clean and tidy condition as when you moved in. If there is any gratuitous or negligent damage or loss of keys you may be charged up to £150 to cover the cost of repairs or replacements.
You would share the top two floors of this spacious Edwardian semi with a nice group of three males and one female, aged 25-35, all British at the moment and all non-smokers This may sound like more people than you would like to share with but I can assure you that it is a large house and even when fully occupied it does not seem in the least over-crowded or noisy.
The large, first floor dining kitchen (15' x 12'6") overlooks the big back garden and park. It has a sofa and tv, a range cooker, large fridge, large freezer, a washing machine plus plenty of storage space, tons of communal cooking pans, utensils etc and a dining table and chairs.
There is secure storage for your bike if you have one but I cannot store an e -bike or an e-scooter for you because of the fire hazard invalidating my insurance. There is on street parking outside.
The house has has gas CH, double glazing, laundry facilities, wide halls and landings, fire doors and closers on all rooms, plus thumb turn mortice locks and a fire alarm system. Licensed by Leeds City Council as an HMO (House in Multi-Occupation, the shared part of this house has all of the required facilities and more!
There is a gym and pool etc at the nearby John Charles Fitness Centre which is quite handy if you like to exercise. Pure Gym is also within walking distance. on the Tulip Retail Park.
There is also a weekly cleaner for the communal areas but this does not let you off your responsibility to keep things clean and tidy. No student digs this. It is designed by and for grown-ups who like the comforts of home and the flexibility of renting from a caring and considerate landlord - me! It
is very pleasant and "leafy" round here despite being so close to the city centre with the park and lovely Middleton Woods nearby. Many local bus routes run past the end of the street down Dewsbury Road (250m) and it is just a 10 minute bus ride into town (City Station, Headrow or Corn Exchange) + a short walk to the LU and LMU city campus and the LGI. A walk through the park at the back of the house takes you to no. 1 bus route which runs frequently through to Headingley. Additionally there are no less than 12 Arriva buses between 7am and 9am in the morning which will get you to the bus station in 15 minutes. We have the best bus services in the city, bar none!
The rent for this room is currently £500 pcm inclusive of all bills including broadband. When the 3-monthly fuel “price caps” or standing charges take effect there may be a small increase in the rent.
Showing consideration to your housemates, helping to keep the communal areas clean and tidy and being a non-smoker are the conditions of sharing this lovely home. It is clean, warm, comfortable, friendly and conducive to study or work.
Please note that this accommodation has no shared sitting room. However, the rooms are large and comfortable enough for this not to be a problem, in my opinion. This house is a well-run and well-maintained home which will appeal to people with mature attitude to their accommodation and fellow housemates.
Longing to hear from you!
