Light modern ensuite bedroom in large Victorian house close to Brixton
Brixton, London, United Kingdom
It's an airy, spacious modern bedroom with it's own private bathroom for your sole use. It's on the top floor of the house, overlooking a very quiet leafy street, with big trees outside the window. The room has a double bed, a wardrobe and bookshelves. There would be room for a small desk which can be added if required.
The house is spacious, newly refurbished, with wooden floor throughout. The house used to be a freemasons lodge, it has a lot of charm and character. Downstairs is the shared kitchen which opens onto the back garden, it has underfloor heating and all the required amenities. We have a cleaner who comes twice a week.
The area is quiet and residential, very accessible by public transport - Loughborough Junction station is a 5-min walk which gets you into the city (Elephant & Castle, Blackfriars, City Thameslink are all 5 to 10 mins away). We're also a 15 min from Brixton centre, which has the Victoria line (24 hour on weekends). There's plenty of buses going to South-East, South-West and Central London. The area has a lot to offer, being right in between the different villages of South-East London (East Dulwich, Herne Hill, Camberwell and Brixton) and right in between two lovely parks - Myatts field and Ruskin Park. There's supermarkets nearby - Coop at the end of the road, the Junction pub which has live jazz every night, and you'll find plenty of restaurants in Brixton village.
All utilities are included in the price. That means Energy (Electricity and Gas), Water and Internet.
Amenities are split into Private (things in your room) and Shared (things in the communal areas of the house, e.g. Kitchen, Living Room, Bathroom).
Happy to host either a single occupant or a couple.
Our ideal guest would be someone who speaks languages or is interested in languages, especially Dutch or German - as we are a half English half Dutch household. Someone who likes children, someone responsible who will treat our home with respect and clean up after themselves.
Optional: if you are able to help with the children occasionally, on weekday evenings - we could negotiate on the rent if you are able to provide regular help, e.g. one afternoon a week, and/or occasional babysitting.
