Description

Come and stay in this pleasant bedroom in a quiet, comfy and tasteful home with views across London. The property is a maisonette near the pedestrianised Archway Zone 2 tube station, within walking distance of Highgate and Crouch End. The street, built in 1891, is in the Whitehall Park conservation area. Many shops and amenities are nearby, while Bloomsbury, The City and the West End are an easy commute by tube or bus. The property is what is called in the UK a maisonette (upper two-thirds of a house). It is ideal for older or postgraduate students, academic visitors and writers. Because the house is on a hill, each floor is split-level and my two floors are arranged on four levels, so there is plenty of privacy. The kitchen and bathroom are shared (with myself and one other lodger) but you have your own storage space in both rooms. There is also a separate WC. The room has a small double bed but although the occasional visitor is acceptable, the room is for single occupancy. There is no shared living room. The rent includes heating, electricity and (fast) WiFi, washing machine and dryer, and use of the lovely garden. A set of towels, bedding, and bedlinen are provided. The home is cleaned on a regular basis. All of this is included in the rent – no nasty surprises. If you are not able to visit in person before a letting, I can offer a Skype tour. I can also put you in touch with former lodgers from around the world who enjoyed their stay here. Once a letting is agreed, I provide a clear and simple letting agreement, inventory and receipts. If you are new to London, I can provide detailed travel information in advance.
