Flatsharing with two females (Av) age 35ish looking for 25-45
Our lovely flatmate has moved out after 5 years and we are looking for a lady (sorry lads!) to take her room, available from now.
Full details below:
The flat is spacious and comfortable. It has a kitchen with a small table (sits 2), a bathroom with a bath/shower, a separate toilet and a lounge. We have a super powerful broadband connection. Sadly there is no space for bikes, but there are secure bike racks on the street just round the corner.
Your room is the bigger room in the flat. It has a double bed and a built-in wardrobe. It is bright and quiet (it faces our neighbour's garden). The furniture that you see in the picture (desk, bookshelf and curtains) belong to the current flatmate and will go with her. bed and mattress are staying.
Life in the flat:
We have been living here a long time (7 and 1 year) and we consider the flat our home. It is vital that it remains a quiet space where we can relax after a long day, sleep until late or go to bed early when we need to. The flat is sized for 2/3 people, so whilst we are super friendly, we can't have people over every day. We don't employ a cleaner and we rely on everyone being considerate of others and cleaning after themselves.
We are Cecilia and Laura, in our early and late thirties from Italy and Lithuania, working in public services and retail. We are friendly but respect each other's space. We both have busy social lives, we like to travel and do it as often as we can.
You will have a stable job or be in full time education. You will have a similar life style to us and are friendly, reliable, tidy, responsible and considerate. Ideally we are looking for someone similar in age to us and someone whose first language is not Italian nor Lithuanian/Russian to keep English the neutral language spoken in the flat but that's not a deal-breaker.
Our landlady will require a reference from your employer or a previous landlord.
We are a 15 min walk from both Stratford & Leyton tube stations and 7/8 mins from Maryland rail station (10 mins train to Liverpool Street). The bus stop is a 3 min walk (339, 257, 69, N8) and Westfield Shopping Centre / Olympic park within walkable distance. Several gyms, yoga/pilates centres and the Olympic swimming pool, Stratford Theatre and a Picture House are within walkable distance too, as are Hackney Wick and the East Village with excellent bars, restaurants and breweries.
Bills are around 100 our month. 1 month deposit needed. We share responsibility for the bills and you will be requested to take on the water bill.
Our landlords are very relaxed, friendly and ready to step in when something needs fixing.
If you are interested in seeing the room and meet us please drop us a line and tell us a bit about yourself and your life style.
Due to the current situation we would like to have a quick video chat with you before inviting you over. If you come to see the flat in person please bring PPE with you.
We are looking forward to meeting you
Cecilia and Laura
