Attic room in house next to Headingley station
This is my house, a cosy and full-of-character two-bed back-to-back terrace in the Kirkstall / Headingley area.
I'm heading off travelling / working for the next 6 months, and I'm looking for someone to move into my room while I'm away, and maybe stay for longer if things work out!
A brief rundown of the bedrooms, the house, and the area is given below. If you need any more info or have any questions at all, feel free to drop me a message.
Awesome, here goes...
Your room will be the converted attic room on the top floor of the house.
It's bright & airey, has a large dormer window which lets in loads of daylight, but also comes with a blackout blind.
It has a double bed with memory foam mattress (pretty firm but very comfy).
There is tons of storage space for clothes and luggage under the eaves. On the left hand side there is a wardrobe rail, and shelves for putting shoes on. The middle one has loads of empty space for boxes, luggage, etc. And the right hand one currently houses a chest of drawers, and another wardrobe rail.
There is also an open cupboard with two more wardrobe rails for hanging up even more clothing!
The room comes with a desk, and a floor lamp, a short wide set of drawers, and a tall narrow set of drawers, as shown in the photos.
THE OTHER ROOMS
On the ground floor is the kitchen and living room.
The living room has a red leather Chesterfield sofa, a Persian rug, laps, shelves and storage units for books / vinyl.
The kitchen is open plan, and has plenty of storage space for food, cooking gear, plates, glasses, cups, etc. All of the kitchen equipment is included, so there's no need to buy your own unless you already have it. Oven, microwave, toaster and kettle also included.
The bathroom on the first floor, and has been recently re-tiled and painted. The shower is awesome as it’s fed by the boiler, not one of those crumby electric ones with hardly any pressure behind it!
On the first floor you'll also find Owen's bedroom, the other tenant!
Finally, there is a cellar in the basement that's useful for storing boxes and other bits & bobs.
The house itself is a back-to-back end terrace.. It dates back to 1900 I believe. It does get pretty chilly in winter time, but the heating system works well and there are radiators in every room.
There is a bin storage area next to the house on the right hand side, which also has a shed for storing bikes etc.
We have Virgin Media's fibre optic broadband, speeds of up to 200 mbps, which is rapid.
Vicarage Avenue is an awesome cobbled street, very quiet and relaxed, and with a strong neighbourly vibe. The neighbours are a mix of old and young, retired and professional.
WIthout going into too much detail....
You've for excellent transport links into town via Headingley train station, and regular buses along Kirkstall Road / Burley Road.
For shops you've got a retail park 5 mins walk away with a Morrisons, Costa, gym, loads of other shops.
There is a Chinese takeaway and a fish & chip shop at the end of the next street.
You also have one of the best pubs in Leeds - The Bridge Inn - well within crawling distance.
There's loads of green spaces and places to go running in the areas too - Kirkstall Abbey, the Leeds Liverpool canal, and Beckett's Park.
You will be living with Owen! Top lad - a 30 something young prof working in the care sector. Always up for a beer and a game of Scrabble :) You'll get to meet each other when you come and take a look around.
Rent is £395 per month, payable on the 1st of each month.
Council tax, broadband and water rates are included in the rent.
Electricity and gas is not included.
£250 deposit to be paid on signing, mainly so I've some insurance in case you decide to do a runner one day :)

The room should be available from Sat 23 Feb, but we're very flexible.
