Flatsharing with two males and three females (Av) age 28ish looking for 18-45
Our lovely housemate is leaving us and we're looking for someone just as great to replace her in our happy home in Lower Clapton from March 1.
The room is a spacious unfurnished double on the first floor of our huge two-floor flat right in the middle of Lower Clapton. The room is a great size for whatever furniture you need to bring with you.
The flat has 5 other bedrooms, a spacious living/dining room, 3 bathrooms (1 shower room. 1 bath, 1 toilet) and a good size kitchen. There's communal storage space under the stairs and in the attic too. There's a small yard we share with other tenants in the property that's soon to be transformed into a cute outside space. If you're bringing a bike with you, no problem, we have space!
You'll be living with Michael (29, Copywriter), Joana (34, Artist), Dave (38, Photographer), Kat (27, Marketing) and Steph (25, Events Manager).
In the time before we all had pretty busy schedules, working in the office/retail/freelance but still make time for each other to hang out and catch up in the communal areas - mostly eating, drinking and watching trash. We all get on really well and try to keep a family vibe at home, which has been a lovely place to be during this lockdown mess. We're queer-friendly, and should that be a priority for you, you'll be loving with a cis gay male. Guests are more than welcome.
We're looking for someone that fits in well, who is happy to contribute to the homely vibe of the house. We'd like the usual sociable, clean and tidy, respectful etc. plus a good sense of humour, willingness to join and cooking skills would be fab. We enjoy our own space too, so despite the size and number of us, the house is pretty quiet and there are times you'll likely have the living room to yourself. It's the perfect balance.
The house is perfectly located on Lower Clapton Road, a 10-minute walk from either Hackney Central or Clapton Overground stations. The 38, 55, 106 buses pick up from directly outside of the house too, perfect if you work in central.
We're close by to a bunch of great restaurants, cafes and pubs - you're bedroom will be looking out on the best Vietnamese in the city. Tesco Metro, organic shops and local supermarkets are all less than a moment away. Chatsworth Road is a few minutes away and of course Hackney Central for everything else you need is just 10 minutes. Hackney downs is a 2-minute walk and the marshes/River Lea around 15 minutes.
