On or renewed Wed Jul 29
(Av) age 38ish looking for 25-50
Hello there! My excellent flatmate Adam is sadly moving out after two years here, so I'm looking for someone new and equally excellent to share with.
About the flat:
The room (pictured with two different set-ups) has a bright leafy view looking south to the City. It's narrow but over 15ft / 4.5m long, with a small double-bed, bedside table, shelf unit and built-in wardrobe. There's space for a desk, and next to the bedroom is another large built-in cupboard just for you too.
Also upstairs there's a bathroom with shower, a separate loo, my room, plus a third smaller room which I've turned into a study (my work is split between home, clients and shoots). Downstairs there's a kitchen with dining area, and a separate living room with two sofas and a spare bookcase you can fill. The block has its own off-street car park and cycle locker, so there's space for you or guests if available.
The rent includes fibre-optic unlimited broadband, 100% green energy, and subscription to Who Gives A Crap 100% recycled loo roll :-)
The area is super leafy and green. It's a very short walk to Dalston, Stoke Newington, Islington, and Clissold Park (which has a gym with indoor pool); and a half-hour walk to London Fields and Broadway Market.
10 mins cycle to Shoreditch; 25 mins cycle to Soho.
2 mins walk to loads of buses (21, 73, 141, 236, 341, 476); and 9 mins walk to Zone 2 Overground stations (Canonbury & Dalston Kingsland), getting you door-to-door to central London in under half an hour.
I'm Elliot, a native Londoner, though have lived in lots of different places. I work as a cultural anthropologist and filmmaker, am a bit nerdy, sometimes silly, and enjoy stuff like cooking, reading, cycling, pub quizzing, and playing the guitar badly. I rarely watch telly, more likely an occasional movie on the projector from Netflix/Prime, or a comedy episode before bed (favourites include Its Always Sunny, What We Do In The Shadows, and currently Chewing Gum').
Ideally looking for someone easy-going, preferably into creative/geeky stuff too, and happy to sometimes natter nonsense over the occasional shared meal. Either way should be considerate, clean and tidy too.
This isn't a party pad, but is a home - so friends / partners are welcome - as long as we respect the neighbours and give each other a heads up.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
