Peaceful bedroom in Edwardian terrace with garden, two bathrooms - one a luxe spa - and two sitting rooms.
Peaceful bedroom for rent in an Edwardian terrace on a quiet, tree-lined avenue in Tufnell Park, Zone 2. Excellent bus/tube/overground links, with the Eurostar terminal just 20 mins away.
Despite being so central, the area is blissfully tranquil and the bedroom is very quiet, with thermal-lined curtains for extra cosy sleeping. It's at the back of the house and very light, with large double windows that look out onto the return that leads to the garden, which is lined with little olive trees. The bedroom is on the small side, but has a double bed and a very generous amount of storage for clothes, books, suitcases etc - two large wardrobes and a shelving unit.
A cleaner comes in weekly (included in the rent), and there are two bathrooms and two sitting rooms, one upstairs, one on the lower ground floor, so there's plenty of privacy to chill out. The garden is small but charming with a little grassy lawn and a mature pear tree., plus zero-gravity chairs so you can lie out there and enjoy the birdsong.
Do please note that I have two fluffy cats, who are very entertaining if you like that kind of thing. They won't bother you, and they are indoor/outdoor cats, so there is no stinky litter situation, but it wouldn't suit people who are anti-cat. They are highly decorative - again, if you like that kind of thing - and not over-friendly. You're welcome to invite the cats in to visit your bedroom or to keep it an entirely cat-free area - your choice!
I'm a foodie, so the kitchen is equipped within an inch of its life, including a Kitchen Aid and a truly excellent De Longhi machine. The main bathroom has a wet room rainforest shower, colour change lights and a whirlpool bath which is better than any spa I've been to. If you want bedlinen, pillows, duvets, towels etc I'm happy to negotiate providing those, and also to include you in orders for deliveries of groceries, etc.
Parking is always available, and the area has two parks, a Pure Gym, an Odeon Luxe, and a ton of renowned gastropubs, all within 5 minutes walk. Hampstead Heath is 20 minutes away for walks, runs and swims in the outdoor ponds or the Lido. The Sobel Centre and the Archway swimming pool/gym are also close by. We have a local department store 10 minutes away, as well as all kinds of independent delis and food shops and the best pizzeria in London.
I've shared with an academic and a literary agent at an apartment I previously had in New York, so am really used to and happy with sharers on a pied a terre basis, and can put you in touch with them for references - the academic became a friend and we have shared various apartments for 20 years without a cross word. Full internet, wifi, cable TV, HD smart very large TV, TiVo, laser printer and scanner, Bluetooth speakers, all the modern mod cons. No smokers please.
Please feel free to ask any questions you want! I'm really happy to work with the renter to figure out a schedule that makes us both happy, relaxed, and feeling like we have enough time and space to do our own thing and establish a comfortable co-living situation. I am a latish riser, so this would particularly suit someone who likes to have the place to themselves in the mornings before heading off to work.
Excellent bus/tube/overground links - seven different bus routes, two underground lines - Northern and Piccadilly - and the overground is 15 mins walk away. Highbury and Islington, a short bus ride away, has the Victoria line and extensive rail service. The Eurostar terminal is 20 mins bus ride/drive away.
Parking is always available on the street and it's very easy to get a council parking permit. There are two parks within 5 minutes walk, a Pure Gym, two council sports centres with swimming pools and climbing walls, a newly-refurbish Odeon Luxe and a ton of renowned gastropubs as well as the best pizzeria in London. Hampstead Heath is a short walk away for longer walks, runs, sports activities and swimming in the Lido or the outdoor ponds.
There's a wide range of delicious delis, greengrocers, etc, as well as major supermarkets, plus an independent department store.
