Quiet double room in shared flat in SE5 with trains to central London, The City, and Kent, 5 mins from shops & restaurants
Lovely, quiet characterful room in ground floor Edwardian terraced flat between Camberwell & Brixton, with a window overlooking the back garden. Comes with a comfortable double bed (with lots of under-bed storage if you need), a hanging rail with shoe shelf, and a big chest of drawers. All bills, including wifi, are included. You’ll be sharing with me - I’m in my mid 30s, I work (currently from home) for a food company, I’m sociable and enjoy being active, but also love chilling out in the flat.
The flat is on a peaceful street off Coldharbour Lane, SE5, and 5 mins from both Ruskin Park, Loughborough Junction train station, and a grocer’s, pharmacy, newsagent, and mini Co-Op. More shops can be found a 15-minute walk away in either direction to Brixton or Camberwell.
An ideal flatmate for me would be someone friendly between between 30-45yo, who is respectful and tidy, can be relied on to close windows and lock the front doors, and who is ideally a non-smoker.
Please get in touch if you’d like to come and see the flat or if you have any questions that I haven’t answered below.
I own and live in the flat so I ask that you treat it and clean your space as well as if it were your own (my previous tenants were either friends or have become friends of mine!), taking care of belongings and furniture. There’s one shared bathroom with a shower and a mini bath, some outside space, a spacious sitting room to relax in, with a TV and dining table, and you’re totally welcome to enjoy the kitchen - I work in food, so if you love food and cooking, too, it’ll be a bonus :)
I know my neighbours next door and in the flats above me - we’re all respectful of one another and can contact each other in case of a problem.
As for me, I’m around quite a bit as I work here during the day, and spend a few evenings a week at home, but I’m also sociable (pandemic-aside!), and try to catch up with friends, family and my boyfriend on the other nights. Ideally I’m looking for a flatmate / tenant who I get on with, who happens to leave at weekends, rather than a lodging stranger who drops in and out.
