Lovely single room with private en-suite in a Victorian terraced house on a quiet road, 5-mins walk from Queens Road Peckham Station, Zone 2. Frequent train service 6-7 mins from London Bridge or Canada Water. 20 mins to City and Canary Wharf.
My home is situated 5 minutes walk from Queens Road station - only 7 minutes on the frequent train service from London Bridge & 6 minutes from Canada Water, on the orange London Overground tube.
Double-glazed and furnished with a comfortable double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, full length mirror, radiator.
This lovely room is compact and bijou, as you can see from the plan view, so it would be more suitable for an equally-compact occupant!
We have wireless broadband internet access.
You would be sharing the bathroom with one other person and the fitted kitchen/breakfast room (with fridge and cupboard space for your own provisions), spare downstairs loo, cosy & comfortable lounge and small secluded garden.
The room would suit a clean, tidy, considerate, non-smoking, mature professional, who would usually share house with the owner & one other person (sometimes two) and the house is ideally situated for people working in or around City, Canada Water, London Bridge, Denmark Hill, Blackfriars, Clapham Junction, Waterloo, Charing Cross, Victoria, Canary Wharf, Kings Cross etc...
FACILITIES... Although the house is cleaned weekly, your room would be private during Monday to Friday & therefore your own responsibility. Additional cleaning could be arranged if you wish. Bed linen & towels are provided. Breakfast, evening meals, washing, ironing, dry-cleaning and other services could also be organised for you if you wish (by arrangement). I try to recycle as much rubbish as possible & have installed a compost bin and water butt in the garden. There is space to sit outside & enjoy summer evenings, as you can see in the attached photo.
AVAILABILITY... The bedroom will be available from Mon 22nd June 2020, subject to the Tenancy Application being approved, favourable references and Covid-19 lockdown restrictions being relaxed.
Viewings may be arranged immediately, with appropriate caution for the coronavirus safety guidelines.
I have rented a room for many years and like to ensure we always have pleasant living conditions by keeping the place clean and tidy and although I am very particular about my home (I have some house-rules) and I expect tenants to respect my home & possessions, many previous tenants have become firm friends. I would be happy to provide you with several recommendations from previous tenants, including the out-going tenant, who is leaving after four years, having accepted early retirement... THANK YOU FOR BEING SUCH A GREAT LANDLADY. I HAVE REALLY APPRECIATED THE WELCOMING TOUCHES AND HAVE ESPECIALLY ENJOYED THE MONTHLY HOUSE DINNERS....
As the majority of mid-week tenants require accommodation for only four nights, I have priced my available room accordingly, so, for the advertised rent of £600/month, the room would be available from Monday evening until Friday morning. Occasional additional nights may be possible and are priced at £50 per night.
However, occasionally, tenants have requested arrival on Sunday night - departure on Friday morning. This permanent arrangement is £750/month.
For short-term lets of six months or under, I charge £190 per week for up to 4 nights (Mon, Tue, Wed and Thurs). Three consecutive mid-week nights are £165 per week.

A BIT ABOUT ME... I left my full-time job to re-train and now make craft items and design bespoke stained glass windows and picture frames. I have recently had a fourth piece of work exhibited in the Victoria and Albert museum. If you feel this all sounds interesting to you, please contact me. As my home is only 12 mins (in total, including the walk) from London Bridge station, or 10 mins (in total, including the walk) from Canada Water, it may be possible for you to view during your lunch hour, if this would suit you better than an evening viewing. As I work from home, I am flexible on the viewing times
If you feel this all sounds interesting to you, I look forward to hearing from you.
If you would like to arrange a viewing, please let me know a little about yourself and your accommodation requirements.
