Sunny loft rooms - 2 for single use. Lovely Dollis Hill home
Close to the Jubilee line (zone 3, Dollis Hill), a 3 minute walk to the tube and similar to a huge, glorious park. The rooms are in our newly renovated house: new double-glazed windows, carpets, redecorated and secure with an alarm. We offer a self-contained space on the bright, sunny loft floor, with a large L-shaped bedroom, another room with fridge, kettle, cups, and small table to eat at. Plus the adjacent shower/bathroom. The bedroom has a double bed (new firm mattress) under the window, overlooking neighbours’ gardens, quiet with no traffic noise. There is a wardrobe, easy chair and desk for study space, small tv, plus extra storage under the eaves. Skylights have Velux blinds. Free BT superfast fibre-optic wifi runs throughout the house.
The loft space would suit a professional mature woman or man, who appreciates their own quiet private area in a warm friendly house. We want to rent to just one person, to comply with government Covid regulations. I work from home as a freelance writer, journalist, editor and teacher of English (EFL). My husband is in the catering business, so he works different shifts. We enjoy our garden, which this summer is proudly showing off our own vegetables (with loads of tomatoes and cucumbers). We often spend time at the gym or in the park.
Kitchen use is limited, as you have your own facilities in the other room. We'd not expect daytime use, but you may use the kitchen to make a light evening meal - like a quick stir fry or heat something in the microwave. There is separate storage space in the kitchen for you and use of the dishwasher, washing machine & dryer.
We keep the house very clean. Because of social distancing, we'll need to agree times for kitchen use beforehand. We provide linens, towels, a bi-weekly change of bed and cleaning service.
A 2-3 minute walk to the zone 3 (Jubilee Line) tube station. 10 minutes to Finchley Rd, St Johns Wood, Baker St; 15/20 minutes to Bond St, Green Park, Westminster, Waterloo, London Bridge. There are easy links to the Overground or Thameslink trains (Cricklewood Broadway to Kings Cross, Farringdon, Barbican, Gatwick etc), and many bus routes nearby including the 226 on our road. Parking on request by voucher. Closest airports are Heathrow, Stansted and Luton.
Dollis Hill is a quiet, village-like area, with convenience shops and popular Portuguese café/restaurant by the tube station, plus a takeaway. Close by (next stop into town Willesden Green) there are many more restaurants, pubs, cafe and a large supermarket. We live on a safe road in a clean, pollution-free, environment. The 90 acre Gladstone Park is a couple of minutes’ walk away, with jogging trails, free outdoor gym facilities, tennis courts, duck pond and formal gardens. Easy cycling. Tremendous views over London and Wembley Stadium from the top. You benefit from city life without the noise and pollution. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g186338-d12352283-Reviews-Gladstone_Park-London_England.html
