I have one lovely south facing room for rent in my Victorian house in Horfield.
The room is furnished with a bed (inc mattress), wardrobe and a chest of drawers.
I live at the house along with another housemate and a cat (Fatty) both of whom are very friendly! In view of this I wouldn't really want to introduce any other pets to the house I’m afraid.
Looking for someone professional, clean, tidy who will treat their flat mates and my home with respect. Someone I can trust with my house when I'm away. In return I offer them a room in a nice friendly house.
The house runs based on an 9-5 working day and I prefer to keep it that way. The house is pretty quiet so people regularly coming and going at very late / early hours of the day is not really ideal.
The house isn't the warmest and we tend to reach for the jumper before the thermostat to save the bills / environment, so if you like it tropical or warmer than the suns surface then this house might not be for you lol
I work from home so there is an office with printer etc. More than happy if you want to work in there sometimes in the evenings / weekends, but definitely not looking for another person who works from home.
We try to keep the house pretty clean, but there is no cleaner, so you are expected to help out with general cleaning (eg bathroom / kitchen, bins, hoovering, etc) in addition to doing your own washing up lol
There is a sofa bed in the front room. I'm happy if you want to invite friends over to stay occasionally, I will be doing the same.
There's a blu ray player and an HD TV, although I don't have a huge number of discs lol. Virgin TV with Sky movies included, and WiFi is 600mbps super fast fibre and unlimited. There’s also a bbq in the garden that always needs using!
There is a co-op, Chinese takeaway, Indian restaurant / takeaway and a good pub (Inn on the Green) all within a couple of mins walk, and Horfield Leisure Centre and Common are about 5 mins away. Southmead Hospital is about 10 mins away, as is another good pub the Wellington, and Airbus and the MOD about 25 mins, as is Filton Abbeywoods station but obviously less on a bike!
Buses go from the stop at the end of the road into town very regularly down Gloucester Road, or Stokes Croft is about a 45 min walk if you prefer, centre of town maybe an hour’s walk?
Parking is on the street and not usually a problem, but it can get busy sometimes. I have a secure bicycle storage shed at the front of the house.
There is a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, the oven is electric and the hob is gas, plus a microwave and electric pressure cooker.
I place deposits with the deposit protection scheme, which protects and insures them. References are good but not essential and there are no fees.
If I have missed anything let me know!
