Three beautiful rooms have become available in a freshly decorated three-storey, four-bedroom Victorian house-share a stone’s throw from Hampstead Heath in leafy Dartmouth Park. Available from 29 May.
Bedroom 1: Ground floor, this quiet double room faces onto the garden, so it’s fairly private. It also comes with the use (though not exclusive) of the ground-floor galley kitchen and shower/loo. Rent: £1,300 a month excl. bills
Bedroom 2: Top floor, this double room comes with an adjacent single room to use as a work-from-home space. Rent: £1,135 a month excl. bills.
Bedroom 3: Sunny double room. Top floor with incredible views of the city and leafy gardens. Rent: £800 a month excl. bills.
The bedrooms are flexibly furnished, and currently have wardrobes/hanging space.
Capacious and well-loved, the house has just been re-carpeted and painted so it’s all tip-top – the carpets are spotless and squishy and everything is clean. The house is light and airy and lovely in summer. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and two on the second floor. The first floor comprises a large eat-in kitchen, a large sitting room and a beautiful bathroom with a pretty stained glass door. Being three stories, the house never feels crowded and there’s plenty of storage. *A few more pictures to come*.
Outside, the suntrap garden has roses, lilacs and hydrangeas in it and everyone chips in to keep it tidy. There is place to store a bicycle securely.
No pets for now, single occupancy for each of the rooms and no smoking.
This is an older househare ideal for people aged roughly 35-55. It’s friendly and lively but it’s definitely not a party house, although friends are welcome obviously. After a long tenancy, there has just been a changeover (hence the redecoration) so there is only one tenant in place at the moment: female, 43, an editor. Interests include gardening, travel, books, food, walking and cycling. Centre-left, fairly green and vaccinated. The landlord is lovely, engaged and responsive.
The Heath across the road offers walks, swims, runs, tennis and, on weekends, a farmers’ market. Buses 214 and 88 straight to town are two minutes away, Kentish Town (Zone 2, northern line, and Thameslink straight to the City) and Gospel Oak overground are 10-15 minutes’ walk. Pubs, a Tesco metro and Gail’s all within striking distance. The cafés of Tufnell Park are 12 minutes walk away.
If this sounds like it’s for you, write and tell me a bit about yourself.
