Hello! I'm looking for someone to move into the spare room in my flat in lovely Clapton.
THE FLAT: It's a generous two-bed flat on the second floor of a 1920's block. The building isn't much to speak of, but the flat is cosy and calm with large east-facing windows that get the morning sun.
It has a decent-sized kitchen with a breakfast bar that includes all the essentials. And then a large living room with a dining table and the best that Ikea has to offer.
The bathroom is small but has a strong and modern shower.
THE ROOM: It's a good size double with a big window. Bed, wardrobe and shelves are included and there's space for a dressing table or set of drawers should you wish to add them.
THE LOCATION: The building is a three minute walk from Clapton Station. There's lots of handy grocery stores, cafes, bars, restaurants and renovated pubs in the area.
There's a park just down the road, which leads onto the River Lea and Hackney Marshes - good for a weekend stroll. Chatsworth Road and Hackney Central are both around a fifteen minute walk away.
ME: I'm a twenty-something who's been living in London for around 5 years. I like to try out restaurants and bars in the area, travel, going on country walks and read.
I'm looking for someone with similar interests who would like to share the occasional bottle of wine and chill out in front of the TV but who also appreciates time spent solo. I also like to keep the flat clean, so only those willing to do their fair share of housekeeping get in touch.
THE DEAL: It's 600 a month rent, plus around 110 extra each month for bills (excluding annual TV licence fees). One month's rent deposit. A 12-month contract, with a 6-month break clause.
