We are looking for a new flatmate to share our terrace house in Bethnal Green with as our current flattie is moving to Clapham to live with friends. It's a nice sized house with a comfortable living area (with Amazon Prime tv and space for bike storage), dining/kitchen (with gas stovetop!) which opens out onto a sunny backyard (photo attached is from April - it is now currently full of tomatoes, eggplants and beetroot!), and one shared bathroom. The room itself is a smaller double room which includes a queen sized bed, tall chest of drawers, wardrobe, built-in shelves and a fold-down desk, with a window facing the backyard.
The flatmates are: a couple - a 32yo urban designer from New Zealand and a 35yo systems engineer from Ireland, and the third flatmate is from Brazil and works in education and studies science communications part-time. We also live with a 14 yo medium-sized fluffball of a dog named Yuppi who enjoys sleeping, eating, and belly rubs.
As a house, we all get along well, enjoy chatting about all sorts, and spending time together over tea, a beverage, or a meal when we're all around - but also we're all very busy and do our own thing a lot of the time too - travelling, catching up with friends, going to shows/movies etcetc. We are definitely not a party house but have friends and/or family over now and then.
Our ideal flatmate would be someone who is clean, tidy, mature, sociable but has their own things going on, cares about the environment (we are all trying to eat less meat, use less plastic, use natural cleaning products, and try our best to recycle as much as possible), can help let Yuppi out if she needs to pee, prefers to keep the party out of the house, and wants to be part of a happy and considerate household that we can all feel comfortable and at home in.
In the area: Bethnal Green underground (5 min walk), Cambridge Heath overground (10 min walk), Victoria Park (5 min walk), Simply Fresh grocery store (10 min walk), butchers (5-10 min walk), Roman Road fruit and vege market and fishmonger (5 min walk) every Saturday morning, and lots of fruit and vege shops down Bethnal Green Road. London Buddhist Centre (5 min walk), Better Gym & Pool (5 min walk), and Broadway Market and Colombia Road Flower Market (both 15 min walk).
If that all sounds like it could be a good fit for you, please get in touch with a brief description of yourself and we can set up a viewing of the house. Rent is 690/month paid directly to the landlord with Council Tax and bills around 60/month.
