I have recently renovated a small terrace house near Oval with two double bedrooms. My name is Tom and I divide my time between London and Wales (where my family live).  I sometimes use the house with my family at weekends so am looking for a sharer during the week only.  I'm ideally looking for someone who is also a friendly, busy professional and over 30 years of age.

The house is well-appointed and has recently been refurbished (new kitchen, new bathrooms, new flooring and redecorated throughout). It is a little sparse still but we are looking to make it more homely.  The room available is a large double with armchair on the first floor overlooking the quiet mews style/cul-de-sac. I occupy the other double bedroom to the rear of the property. There is plenty of storage space and you are welcome to store personal items in the room when you are away (and over the weekend).  

Bills included and a cleaner once a fortnight. 

The communal spaces comprises a family kitchen with dining area and there is also a garden which can be used (but access is only from the rear of the house). The garden needs a bit of attention which it will get when we have a little time. The kitchen has plenty of space including a dedicated cupboard for you, fridge/freezer space and full cooking facilities (including an oven, gas hob and microwave).  The bathroom (walk-in shower, basin and WC) and additional WC are shared with me.  Other facilities include a washing machine, dishwasher and iron/ironing board for shared use.

There is an off-street car parking space (by arrangement and for an extra fee) and plenty of room outside for bicycles. I leave my bicycle outside overnight locked to the boundary fence (and although I wouldn't describe it as totally secure it does work for me).
