Flat-Share Stroud Green,London N4

APARTMENT DESCRIPTION:
You may have just found your perfect flat-share. This is your opportunity to upgrade and share a superior apartment that you'll consider *home* (much more than just a place to stay). This may be a little biased, but I do believe this to be one of the best home shares on here.

OVERVIEW:
A clean apartment with a modern interior that has excellent natural light, situated on the 3rd floor of a purpose-built block, ideally located, with easy access to restaurants, bars, shops, theatre and transport links. Full shared use of the apartment and all its facilities, fully furnished and ready to move in. Close to all the amenities (restaurants, bars, shops, theatre and green spaces) of Finsbury Park, Crouch End, Highbury and Islington and offers excellent living space in a quiet tree-lined residential street; a designated conservation area

LOCATION: 
The apartment is situated in a quiet residential area, in one of Islington's Areas of Conservation, steps away from Finsbury Park and the Parkland Walk Local Nature Reserve. Bordering on Finsbury Park, Highbury and Crouch End. It's ideally located in a quiet, private and secure neighbourhood located in wonderful leafy residential surroundings, situated on the 3rd (the top level) - it has lots of uninterrupted natural light, with interesting green surroundings and has a pleasant view from any direction. It also benefits from being in a good position with no-one above you- it's quiet, light, away from traffic and feels private. There is also a small garden and well-maintained lawns.

FLATMATES: 
Welcome to your potential future home. this beautiful flat-share, with its contemporary art and interesting objects, would suit someone who will treat the place as their own, this is what makes it such a lovely place to live. Someone who is interested in having an interactive living atmosphere rather than a hostel-type living. I’m looking for a flat-mate, not an anonymous stranger looking for a temporary place to hang their hat, that's Airbnb's niche market.

A FLAT-SHARE REIMAGINED:
Looking for a place to live can be daunting but with a little dedication, realistic expectations, researching what’s available and investing time in finding the right flat-share, you’ll soon be settling into your new home.

Be cognizant that a flat-share only works if people are considerate and respectful of each other, a great apartment is only part of the equation, it’s the flat-mates that make or break a flat-share. Everyone's idea of the perfect flat-mate is different, so search based on what's important to you. Whether it is certain traits in your housemates, room furnishings, location or price. The social interaction, communication and trust aspect of living in shared accommodation are of paramount importance. You may have just found your perfect flat-share.

When you live with the right people, you’re not just sharing a living space - you’re sharing a part of your life. It is at least as big a consideration as the quality of the accommodation

FLATMATE:

 independent 30 something (male or female), looking for a comfortable and friendly long-term home. Someone fun, clean and tidy, social and friendly, who has their own life and interests. Someone that works traditional hours Monday to Friday.

I’m a friendly and very easy-going person and I like the idea of being able to share occasional ‘downtime' with my flat-mate over coffee, a meal or a glass of wine from time to time.

I consider myself to be tidy, clean, polite, outgoing, friendly and open-minded, and I respect others privacy and personal space.
I have a home in the United States that I now rent out, since returning to London I have rented a flat-share and now rent out my flat, so I have empathy for both points of view.

NEIGHBOURHOOD: 
This two-bed flat-share is in a vibrant neighbourhood and a much sought-after area, the transport connections are unmatched for London, making it very accessible to every area day or night. Two minutes away from a Tesco Express five minutes away from Sainsburys supermarkets

It's well served by a plethora of local shops, bars, and ethnic restaurants whilst the immediate area provides unequalled transport links. Great local shops, markets, pubs, places to eat, 

Finsbury Park 110 acres of green space is a five-minute walk away. (boating lake, athletics track, tennis, basketball courts etc. there are local gyms and a swimming pool Hampstead Heath is a short over-ground train ride away. Parkland Walk, cycling track and the Castle Rock climbing course there are also local gyms and a swimming pool is but a short bike ride away - you hardly need to leave the area on the weekend, but there are outstanding local transport links if you feel the need.

TRANSPORT: 
The property is within a short walking distance to Finsbury Park station, which has Thameslink connections to the city  only a few minutes’ away and connects you to every Londoner’s best friend - the Victoria Line, which runs every 90 seconds, making it the most frequent in Europe, and the Piccadilly underground lines, both these lines run a Night Tube service, there is also a National Rail station for the Great Northern service. Overground trains run from Crouch Hill Station, which is five minutes away.
Finsbury Park station is also a bus terminus that has several bus routes that go directly into the City. -W3, W7, 210, 4, 19, 29,106,153, 236, 254 and 259. Night buses – N19, N29, N253 and N279

APARTMENT: 
Photographs, however good can only convey so much; I would suggest you arrange a viewing, I’m sure it will exceed your expectations.
Full Spectrum Natural Daylight (warm white) lights are installed throughout the apartment

The double 125 sq. ft bedroom with optimum storage, and is a quiet, bright and comfortable room that would be ideal for someone who is looking for a quality, peaceful place to stay to work or study; most tenants stay for 3+ years, so I must be doing something right! A sanctuary from the hectic outside world, with a unique feeling of personal space, without isolation.

It's fully furnished with a large single bed (to be replaced with a double bed in December) chest of draws, bedside table and built-in floor-ceiling wardrobe. With double glazing, fitted carpet, newly decorated and all new furniture; including a new Miracoil® Orthopaedic mattress (100% cotton bed sheets and duvet cover supplied as well as cotton towels if required)

More than ample storage space comprising, chest of six large drawers, fitted floor to ceiling wardrobe with storage compartments and hanging space, under-bed storage (for suitcases), two drawer bedside table. And it also has a glass topped computer desk with two storage drawers, and a leather swivel chair, an ideal retreat to surf the internet, answer emails or just relax and re-energize

The shared lounge/dining area is complete with two comfortable two-seater leather sofas, which are great for watching Netflix or SKY on the 42" smart TV, catching up on some reading or entertaining friends. There is also a large glass topped coffee table. 

The dining area has a large glass topped table and four chairs.
This is by no means a party flat, but you are more than welcome to invite friends over for dinner or coffee to relax and feel at home or to occasionally share a meal, watch TV, or good old Netflix and chill time.

The gourmet kitchen is equipped with two Fridge/Freezers (one brand new family sized for your exclusive use) as well as a coffee machine, food processor, microwave, fan-assisted oven, an electric hob and an extractor fan that is connected to the exterior, along with all the cookware/tableware you’ll ever need plus a washing machine. 

The bathroom has an electrical power-shower and a glass screen splashback over the bath. It has an openable window so lots of natural light. You would only be sharing with one other person so no need to compete with a cast of thousands to use the facilities in the morning
