Fabulous rooms in beautiful Edwardian house in Muswell Hill. (Near underground)

I have a lovely home in Muswell Hill, which I share with postdocs, research fellows or PhD students each academic year.

I'm a friendly, retired teacher and counsellor with two adorable cats, and usually, there are three of us sharing this beautiful home.

On offer are large, light, bright rooms with double sash windows, south-west facing, overlooking the garden.

The larger first-floor room has a comfortable double bed (new mattress), large desk, bookcase, chest of drawers, linen basket and wardrobe. Duvet, bedspread, sheets and towels are all included. Plenty of floor space for yoga or meditation.

The single room has the same but a comfortable single bed. Both are perfect for writing up research work or PhD in this quiet house. You only need to arrive with a suitcase and a laptop as everything else is already here.

You will share all facilities of the house -
• A fully equipped, clean kitchen and diner with plenty of storage space, refrigerator space and a dishwasher.
• Separate utility room with washer and dryer.
• Large comfortable living room with Virgin Cable TV, video and DVD.
• Luxury bathroom with a whirlpool bath, power shower, toilet, bidet and washbasin.
• Second toilet on the ground floor.
• Lovely secluded garden and enchanting patio.

We have high-speed broadband throughout the house by ethernet and WIFI too. We have a weekly cleaner, regular gardener and a handyman, who between them keep the place looking great.

East Finchley underground (Northern Line) is a short walk from the house and then twenty minutes to central London Colleges and the British Library. Or a short bus ride takes you to Bounds Green (Piccadilly line) or Finsbury Park (Victoria line).

This lovely home is in a tree-lined avenue in Muswell Hill, which is a desirable residential area with plenty of green spaces and many pleasant walks. There is a gym with a swimming pool at the end of our road.

The local shopping area has Sainsbury, M&S and Waitrose supermarkets as well as varied and interesting local shops, including a large bookshop and many good restaurants. Muswell Hill has a village-like atmosphere and offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of central London.

These are not just rooms in a house but a real 'home from home' and a house you would feel proud to call home.

Perfect for those who appreciate comfort and would enjoy living in a friendly academic household and meeting people. Visiting partners welcome for short stays.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards,
Dr Karina Halstead
