Small single room in nice house and area
I am a mature but active woman, age 71, with a 25 year old daughter living at home and studying online. I am semi-retired, working two days per week, and personal projects take up most of my time at home. I am looking to rent a room in my home in the historic area of Walthamstow Village. The room is a pleasant but quite small. It has plenty of storage with a wardrobe and under-bed storage. It leads onto a flat roof/ balcony. It is available from March 17, 2022 for up to nine months.
This charming Victorian house has been recently renovated and has a new kitchen. The area is quiet and attractive, with several historic buildings.. It is also well served by shops, craft stores, restaurants and pubs. It is a ten minute walk to Walthamstow Central bus, underground and overground stations and just a bit farther to Walthamstow Queens Road Station. There is a little bus every half hour from the station if you are feeling tired. I am tidy, laid back and friendly, but don't have much time to engage and I am looking for a female lodger who is similar. I have two friendly dogs.
Walthamstow Central is a transport hub and is on the Victoria underground line. It is a ten minute walk from the house to the bus, underground and overground stations. It is 20 minutes on the train to Central London. There is also the W12 bus which stops nearby, and a short walk to other bus routes. The street is permit parking from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. It is possible to buy a resident's permit.
The house is well situated for amenities. At one end of the street is the trendy Ravenswood Industrial Estate, where God's Own Junkyard, a neon art emporium, is located. Ravenswood hosts 3 breweries, a Gin Palace, a cafe and outdoor seating. In the other direction, around the corner, are nice shops and restaurants, including a corner shop voted the best in Britain! The small, pedestrian area has become a popular place to visit. We are also around the corner from the 'ancient house', the 900 year old St. Mary's Church and the Vestry House Museum of local history.
