Do you want to live somewhere that is a home rather than just a house? Are you a mature and responsible person who can take initiative and enjoy the benefits of working together to make a place function for everyone? If you are vegetarian (or happy to live in a vegetarian home) and interested in living communally then you could be the right fit for The Nevill. The rent is £630/month and bills are £130/month which includes all utilities (wifi, electricity, gas, water, BT, aTV license), food/drinks (except booze!) and consumables (cleaning products, washing liquid, loo roll etc…). A deposit of £630 is also required. One room is currently available for a temporary period of 6 months due to planned repair work. After that, the room will be available again for long term. We all share the responsibility to cook, clean, shop etc… for the house and one another. We don’t have rotas so want to live with people who can take responsibility to do what’s needed. We’re busy people, from various places and with broad interests (art, architecture, film, theatre, activism, football and the pub quiz!) who want to live in a friendly home, socialising, relaxing or having a rant with a cup of coffee/herbal tea or a glass of whiskey/wine/beer depending on the time of day. We share meals in the evenings whenever possible, taking turns to cook for each other. We meet people at least twice when filling rooms and have probationary period to try and get the right fit. In order to keep a balance in the group we would rather not have other couples. Please get in touch and tell us about yourself, what you could bring to a communal place, your experiences and expectations of communal living if the Nevill sounds like a good fit for you!
Our house is currently full and likely to be full for the foreseeable future. However, we are open to prospective members at all times. If you’re interested in joining Redcurrant then please send an e-mail to email@example.com and we’ll send further details about the joining process.
