I've been gentrified. - :(
Not exactly a flatshare but...

I'm moving out of my flat in Crystal Palace in the beginning of April. It's a one bedroom flat in a small block on the top of Beulah Hill. It's been a pretty good flat but not big enough for my needs now, and my landlady has been pretty easy going.

If anyone is interested PM me and I'll put you in touch with her.

Room To Rent In Sw2

My mate has a house on Athlone Road SW2 (between Brixton Hill and Tulse Hill) and the departure of his previous flatmate has left a room empty.

House is huge as, despite there being 3 bedrooms, it would only be shared with my mate (ie 2 people only in house). There's also a garden, small conservatory, on-road parking outside etc.

Brixton room vacancy for girl

There is currently a room vacant in my house in central Brixton for a relaxed female taker. There are four other people - house a bit run down but nice place really and relatively clean/tidy (annoyingly obsessive tidy-uppers need not apply though;) ). We're a friendly bunch in general, though some of the housemates are often not in the house. Price is £80 or thereabouts I think (will confirm price to people who PM me obviously). We're asking for a girl so as to have a fairly even gender-balance in the house. The room currently has a semi-double bed (wider than single but not as wide as full double) - I think the landlord is prepared to change it if you want.

There will be a very informal interview if you are interested in the house - just a chance to meet the housemates really.

PM me if you are interested.


Like a boss.
Looking for a place in Brixton / Herne Hill pretty soon.. looking to spend hopefully not more than £80 a week, would like a double room, not too tiny, nice, chilled people.. not students though, one of the reasons for my move! no offence though :)

loads of places out there, but thought I'd post this anyway, every little helps eh.. to quote frigging tesco.


adhering to a paradigm
a friend is looking for someone to live in his spare room.

The flat is in willesden green, Zone 2, less thatn one minute from the jubilee line.

Its available from Monday 7 June, you would be sharing with just my friend (Male) would prefer NS and aged 18-30, other than that he has no requirements other than being easy going and attitude free, and are generally sociable.

The flat is WELL nice, he has only just bought it and moved in so all the furniture is brand new (i know, i helped him put it up) and the room is bright and airy.

its going for £320 pcm + bills

PM me for phone number or email address.


If anyone's looking for a room in a shared house paying somewhere in the ~£360-£460 range then drop me a PM. My Landlord has a couple of rooms going on Mayall Road. I've never seen these houses and I'm not saying my landlords like the best in the world or anything but he's OK and if your looking in that price range in Brixton you might as well give it a look.

I think that includes most bills and stuff but I'm not sure.

Want to spend a month in Brixton??

I am away from the 29th July to the 28th of August.

And I've filled my room now :)


the truth don't care
Room in Stoke Newington

And very nice it is too. Available starting 12th June.

Sharing with two girls, one boy, and a cat, this victorian house is ideally situated in the quiet residential area north of Abney Park. Kitchen/Lounge are quite spacious. There is possibly a choice between a double or single room (£368-£347 a month). The single room is generally held to be nicer, overlooking Abney Park.

We have a preference for a female non-smoking vegetarian.

Ideal for vampires!
