Room to rent in East Oxford
We are moving to Italy and are seeking to let a room in our house in Oxford to a lodger. We will retain the house as our base in the UK, but are likely to be resident in it for only about 25% of the year, so the lodger will be able to use the house much as a tenant would for much of the time. The situation would be ideal for a postgraduate, young professional or similar.
The house is situated in the Magdalen Road / Iffley Fields area of East Oxford, a popular, pleasantly mixed area where many teachers, lecturers and students live, one mile from the centre of town. There's a bus stop to town two minutes' walk from the house. Within five minutes' walk of the house there are several nice cafes, pubs and restaurants (including the wonderful Magdalen Arms and Oli's Thai), and three corner shops. There are two Co-ops a few minutes' walk away, and all the shops and restaurants on the Cowley Road are 10 to 15 minutes' walk away. The street is very quiet and friendly.
The house has two double bedrooms. The front room (lodger's room) will be set up with desk, wardrobe, shelves, etc. Downstairs there is living room (with sofabed), dining room, kitchen, bathroom and conservatory. There is a small and very pleasant garden with two patio areas, table and chairs, garden bench. The house is full of books.
We would charge the 'going rate' for a room of this sort in East Oxford, which is £500 plus a £150 contribution to bills (gas, electricity, water, wi-fi, council tax.)
