Spacious attic room with en-suite bathroom in a quiet residential street 2 mins from Stepney Green tube
This very spacious and bright double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and lounge area, situated in a quiet and very friendly residential cul-de-sac. It is on the top floor of my modern three storey town house. There is plenty of cupboard space and general storage.
You will also have use of the kitchen and garden.
Bedlinen and towels provided and laundered. Weekly cleaner is also included, as are all other bills.
The area has controlled parking but my drive and/or scratch cards can be available to you (though not as a regular feature of the Mon-Fri arrangement).
There are railings within the front garden to secure a bicycle.
I am a retired headteacher and spend my time between London and Folkestone. Most of my immediate family live in the surrounding area so if there are any problems whilst I'm away help is on hand!
