The Space

It's a double room on the second floor at the back of the house, with built-in wardrobe, chest of drawers, desk, double bed. Wooden floors with rugs, access to a very spacious shared bathroom. A cleaner comes once a week (it's £14 per week on top of rent). The kitchen-dining is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, oven, kitchen bar and stools. The house is located on a very peaceful residential part of the Islington conversation area. It's in between two parks (Highbury Fields and Clissold Park) and there's barely any traffic. Transport wise, it's a 10 min walk from Arsenal, Canonbury and Highbury & Islington stations - for access to both underground and overground lines. The Emirates stadium is within walking distance - Arsenal Football ground. It's a 5 min walk from number 19 and number 4 buses that go into the city and to Finsbury Park/Archway. Ther'es a lovely little village called Highbury Barns with some really nice restaurants, delis, a pub, post office, hairdressers etc. Finsbury Park and Angel are also nearby, both have a shopping centre and lots of places to eat and drink.

Ideal guest

Someone respectful and considerate, mature, independent, who will clean up after themselves.

Household info

I have a small cat called Lily. I have another lodger, a male friend in his 50s doing an MA at London University. He's on the top floor. Occasionally my son comes to stay.
