Flatshare DescriptionThis is a short-ish term rental of anything from 2-6 months, it's flexible. Seeking an easy-going, creatively-minded female to join a long established and much-loved house share. The house has character, old-fashioned charm, thoughtful decoration and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. It's very well cared for by the owner.
There's a choice between one of two very comfortable spare, double bedrooms, both of which are well-furnished with everything youll need for a short-term rental. The rooms are painted a warm white, catch the evening light and are very comfortable spaces to make your own. I can provide quality bedding if needed.
You'll also find a large double reception room with wooden floors and a piano, a clean bathroom with an over-the-bath shower, a wonderful eat-in kitchen with a large wooden table, and a sunny, well-planted garden with a well-tended lawn. The back of the house looks out over the Paddington Old cemetery, an oasis of calm full of owls, woodpeckers, parakeets and dog walkers. This gives the house the feeling of being in the countryside and an unusually peaceful atmosphere.
You'd be sharing the house with myself, a relaxed and friendly live-in landlady, occasional photographer and generally creative person. I enjoy good food, the local farmers market, cooking, travelling, music, The Arts, Crafts, a rustic/traditional/classic aesthetic, nature and the environment. I've had long and short term tenants here over the past 17 years, and some lovely Airbnb guests (consistent 5 star reviews). My current tenant will be heading abroad at the beginning of February to live with her boyfriend, hence my search for someone new.
The house would suit a reliable, friendly and easy-going 30's-40's female, ideally someone who's creatively minded, and definitely someone who cares about where they live and makes a house a home. Ideally you'd be quite independent and have your own life, whilst enjoying the experience and company a shared house can offer.
The house is fully set up with WiFi and we recycle as much as we can. The house is generally tidy but how you keep your room would be up to you. Smoking's fine in the garden only. This property is very well situated on a popular street in Queens Park, a lovely villagey area with lots of excellent cafes, a wonderful local park (tennis courts, open-air cinema in the summer, a mini-farm etc) Sunday farmers market (a 2 minute walk away), a very good yoga studio and health food shop a short walk away, community spirit and excellent transport links.
The price is all-inclusive (paid by direct debit) apart from a share of the cost of a cleaner every other week (15 each, she cleans for 3 hours). I usually ask for a small deposit and the signing of a simple tenancy agreement. The middle bedroom's available towards the end of January, the back bedroom's available after the 2nd February. The move-in date's quite flexible.
