A little bit about the room and house?
This airy double room has a huge bay window overlooking our quiet leafy cul-de-sac. It has plenty of room for a double bed and desk if you work from home, it gets lots of sunlight and comes with a huge built-in wardrobe. You’d be sharing a modern bathroom on the same floor with two other tenants, the shower/bath combo has a great water pressure, a heated towel rail and above sink storage.
Please note the room is unfurnished but I will be looking to sell some of my furniture to the next tenant if possible - one thing I will definitely be taking is my mattress.
The shared living space is very, very spacious and the kitchen comes with all your necessary mod cons, (dishwasher, induction stove, oven, microwave, built-in fridge freezer). The living room also has a small bathroom attached to it. We have a year-old double-door fridge-freezer, (yep two fridges!) and she’s pretty beautiful. The back doors open out from the living room onto our lovely garden, also the whole house was repainted last year and it feels very fresh and clean.
I’ve been the lead tenant for the last year and lived in this house for three years. It's a wonderful house and a great area, sadly my new job is just too far away.
A little bit about the location?
The house is located on a quiet side-street in Golders Green. Our nearest tube station is Golders Green (Northern Line) with a 15/20 minute ride into Central London. The nearest Bus-Stop is 2 minutes’ walk away with the following buses:
13 (24hr): Victoria Station/Bakers Street/North Finchley
460: Willesden Bus Garage/North Finchley
102: Brent Cross/ Edmonton Green
Golders Green Station is also serviced by many buses heading in all sorts of directions, including Stansted airport.
The area has fantastic restaurants, bakeries and deli's and Sainsbury's, M&S and Waitrose are all nearby. Just across the road there is a wonderful café and a 24 hour off licence for all your 2am snack needs.
If you're an outdoorsy sort Hampstead Heath Extension and Hampstead Heath are in easy walking distance making cooling off at the ponds really accessible. Our nearest Lido is Gospel Oak if you like a paddle. The area has virtually everything you need but it's also got a bit of a relaxed homey feel despite being so close to spots like Camden.
A little bit about us?
This is a creative, international, liberal and LGBTQI friendly house, the remaining housemates want to keep this as a home rather than just a house-share.
We are a friendly bunch, we sometimes watch a film together in the large living space or otherwise tend to bump into each other whilst cooking and eating.
C is a 31-year-old Producer and directs live shows for gaming, music and beyond. Huge nerd, rather northern. Count him in for comedy/cabaret/drag shows/staying out until the club shuts.
L is an actor from Spain and Italy who is disappointingly bad at cooking. Passionate about films, theatre, art, poetry… and cats!
A is an artist working with kinetic sculptures and also works in retail.
A freelance musician who composes/plays piano and sometimes works evenings.
L is currently teaching drama and managing a theatre for a school in St. John's Wood. Does some writing. Plays some sport badly
^ I cannot stress how fab this wonderful bunch are, great housemates, great peeps :)
