I am a friendly retired teacher and psychologist and my wife and I enjoy sharing our house with female visiting lecturers, research fellows and PhD students each academic year. Our two daughters have grown up and moved away so we have space for visitors.

Our home is quiet, warm and comfortable and recently redecorated. We have a sunny, south-facing loft conversion with lovely, light bright, rooms which are quiet and great for study.

The double room has two skylights giving plenty of daylight and wonderful stargazing at night. There is a comfortable double bed (new mattress), desk, two chairs, chest of drawers, wardrobe, mirror, armchair, footstool and TV. Duvet, pillows, bedspread, sheets, towels are all included. The room is carpeted with plenty of floor space for yoga or exercise.

The single room has a comfortable single bed with storage (new mattress), bedding, towels, wardrobe, desk, chair, chest of drawers, bookshelves, table, TV, mirrors and a laminated floor.

There is a shower room with a power shower and toilet adjacent for exclusive use of room residents.

Your would share our fully equipped clean kitchen for self-catering with plenty of storage space, fridge/freezer and dining room. There is also a washing machine and tumble-drier.

We have a patio and large garden. Also high speed fiber Optic Wi-Fi.

The house is in Palmers Green London N13 and is only 4 minutes’ walk to the nearest bus stop. The 29 bus, which runs 24 hours goes to Gower Street, so easy access to the British Library, UCL, SOAS, Tropical Medicines and other central London colleges.

Wood Green underground (Piccadilly line) is a 15 minutes’ walk or 5-minute bus ride. (15 minutes to Russell Square)

There are many 24-hour shops and restaurants nearby. Also, banks, a post office, supermarkets, parks, a swimming pool, sports centre and fashion shops to suit everybody's taste.

The rooms are rented on a monthly basis There is a License Agreement and an agreed period of tenure for your peace of mind. Receipts given for all payments.

The house is clean, quiet and secure with an alarm system. My wife and I live downstairs. We are a friendly, academic and professional British couple. We have two lovable, friendly cats.

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, security, and would enjoy living in a friendly household and meeting people.

Look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards
Anthony & Janet Constantas
