This property has now been taken off the market (as of 15 November 2019).
Room in a Shared House, Withindale Lane, CO10
The property benefits from off street parking, gas central heating (the boiler is newish) and a fruitful apple and pear orchard.
The rent includes the bills. Breaking these down (for comparison with properties where rent does not include the bills) and amortising between a putative four entities the council tax comes to £61 per month, the water bill £8 per month, the power bill circa £53 for electricity and circa £37 for gas plus £19 for the (radio) internet and £25 for gardening, being £203 per entity for all the bills.
The property is shared with the thirty-something lady fire breather, hoop-performing-elf, lodger and her thirty something entrepreneur partner, the fifty something gentleman inventor landlord (M.A. Cantab), the twenty-something telecommunications engineer and the forty something Antipodean Reverend Doctor software-monk-engineer-lawyer. For your information board gamers would not, by a significant minority of the inhabitants, be frowned on and nor would piano players, libertarians, high calibre software engineers, or physicists, in need of a messianic project, history graduates or singers.
The room is not offered to couples as at today due to the 1947 Town and Country Planning Act although this constraint should be lifted soon as an appropriate planning permission, including conditions, has been granted such that approval is now only pending only the provision of some documents so couples need, hopefully, not be deterred. Naturally prospective lodgers will have to pass the entrance examination which will test knowledge of such matters as whether or not the idea of a citizen's income is evil and what was the origin of World War One?
