House | Private Space
Rates from GBP £200 | Weekly
Last Updated 20 days ago


Close to the Jubilee line (zone 3, Dollis Hill), a 3 minute walk to the tube and similar to a huge, glorious park. The rooms are in our newly renovated house: new double-glazed windows, carpets, redecorated and secure with an alarm. We offer a self-contained space on the bright, sunny loft floor, with a large L-shaped bedroom, another room with fridge, kettle, cups, and table to eat at. Plus the adjacent shower/bathroom (sole use). The bedroom has a double bed (new firm mattress) under the window, overlooking gardens, quiet with no traffic noise. There is a wardrobe, easy chair and desk for study space, small tv, plus some storage under the eaves. Skylights have Velux blinds. Free BT superfast fibre-optic wifi runs throughout the house. The loft space suits a professional (Non-Smoker), postgraduate, PhD, researcher, or Solo Traveler, who appreciates their own quiet private area in a warm friendly house. Universities and libraries should have re-opened, so we'd expect you to spend part of your working days out of the house. We are renting to one person, at a time, in accordance with Covid regulations. (Please do not enquire if you smoke at all, as we are a committed No Smoking house). We're vaccinated and hope you'll also be in the same situation. If not, kindly provide a negative test result taken in the previous 72 hours. We do NOT offer the rooms for quarantine purposes. Please check the Home Office website for information about arrivals from other countries this summer. I work from home as a freelance writer, journalist, editor and teacher of English (EFL). My husband is in the catering business, so he may work different shifts. We enjoy our garden, which last summer proudly showed off vegetables. We usually spend time at the gym or in the park (during gym closures). Kitchen use is very limited, as you have your own facilities in the rooms. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants offering takeaway food. Deliveroo and UberEats are popular in the area. We offer reasonable use of the washing machine & dryer, upon request. We keep the house very clean and adhere to social distancing. We provide linens, towels, a bi-weekly change of bed and cleaning service. Dollis Hill is a quiet, peaceful, leafy, village-like area, just 2/3 minutes’ walk to the tube station (Jubilee Line, zone 3) and similar distance to the 90 acre Gladstone Park which has jogging trails (easy to run 6+ miles). Free outdoor gym facilities, tennis courts, duck pond and formal gardens. Plus a café at the top of the hill with tremendous views over London and Wembley. There are a few shops (fresh fruit & veg, mini-market convenience store, chemist, newsagents) near the tube station, Also a popular newly renovated restaurant, the Dollis Grill, and a takeaway at the top of our road. Close by (next stop into town) is Willesden Green, which has all the pubs, shops, banks, cafes, and supermarkets you’d expect. From mid-May, they'll be open for indoor dining too! A 10-minute bus ride away is the Brent Cross shopping mall, which has everything under one roof - Waitrose, M&S, Boots, Waterstones (books), John Lewis, Fenwicks, Zara, Mango, H&M, and a wide variety of restaurants/ cafes. The transport links to central London are excellent. The Jubilee line takes 10 minutes to Finchley Rd, St Johns Wood, Baker St or 15/20 minutes to Bond St, Green Park, Westminster, Waterloo, London Bridge. There are easy links to the Overground or Thameslink trains (Cricklewood to Farringdon, Blackfriars, Gatwick, Brighton), plus many bus routes nearby including the 226 on our road. Closest airports are Stansted and Luton, with easy links by National Express coach from Finchley Rd station. Heathrow can be reached directly by tube or on the Heathrow Express,
