Large bright double room in Vict. terrace

Description

Moortown / Chapel Allerton border.

Spacious double room in a large Victorian terrace in a quiet residential street in a great part of Leeds.

The room available is a large double on the top floor. It is an L-shaped room with a sleeping area and space for a small sofa and/ or a desk. The room has 2 windows.

The house has kept most of its original features, but in recent times has had new windows, electrics, smoke alarm system, plumbing, etc. and a new kitchen, 2 new bathrooms (1 bath, 2 showers and 2 toilets), new floor coverings and curtains / blinds in each room, etc. Rooms have all been redecorated and furnished in modern light colours.

Tom has lived happily in this room for 5 years. However, it will be redecorated, etc. as a matter of course before anyone moves in.

There are two ground floor lounges (both bigger than average) so everyone can sit together or find some personal space if they have visitors or just need to chill. A dining area seats up to 6 people.

(Please note - during the coronavirus restrictions part of this shared space has been temporarily 'repurposed' as shared office accomodation to allow everyone to work from home)

Normally there would be 2 comfy sofas and an armchair in one living room and another 6 seat suite, Virgin TV, etc. in the other.

All shared areas are professionally cleaned every fortnight at the landlord's cost.

When full there are four people in total - usually two male and two female. This balance has always worked for the house.

We're currently looking for someone to join Sian, Rachel and Liam. Maintaining the gender balance will be one of the considerations in choosing a new housemate.

The house could easily accommodate more people, but the aim is to provide a place for people who want company but also a bit of their own space. It's a fairly quiet and relaxed house where people get on well with each other but don't feel they have to do everything together either. It isn't a party house, and suits people who want to get away from that.

There are two living rooms and the kitchen on the ground floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom on each upper floor; so there's effectively a bathroom and big living room to every two people. There are also 2 washing machines between 4 people, and a dishwasher.

This room has a bathroom across the landing shared effectively with one other person.

The landlord lives out, and this is his only rented house. Repairs etc. will happen promptly. The landlord can provide references from former housemates if needed.

There's a paved front garden and plenty of street parking outside the house. There has never been a problem finding a space, and no-one has ever had a problem with theft from / damage to their car.

There is a bus stop for buses into town and there are loads of good shops (incl. Sainsburys, M&S food, etc.) within a short walk. Chapel Allerton centre is just up the road.

Rent includes all bills and cleaning costs (worth over £100pcm / sharer):

- Council tax & water rates
- Gas & Electricity
- Virgin TV
- TV licence for lounge
- Wi-Fi, broadband
- Fortnightly cleaning of all shared areas

So there's not really anything else to pay.

Please contact for more info or to arrange to come and have a look and an informal chat.
