Today the house hunt came to an end. It was not far off an epic journey with much angst in the hunt.
We have taken a large room close to old st Station and angel. For the uninitiated (like us until quite recently) this is in central London also known as ZONE 1.
We scored a large room in a flat with two other guys sharing the toilet, bathroom (with POWER SHOWER) and kitchen. There unfortunately isn't a lounge but the size of our room makes up for it (perhaps even was it at some point in the past). We actually have a king sized bed and futon sofa bed along with desk, wardrobe and tall boy with space to spare. We were impressed to say the least.
Then there was the price. We are paying a total of £150 per week for everything bar food and personal effects. That's rent, gas, water, electricity, phone (free local and national calls), Internet and TV licence! BA-AR-R-RGAIN!
Plus the real make or break was that it is within walking distance to both Liverpool St Station, where my train to work in Essex leaves, and to Kings Cross Station, where Phil's potential train to his potential job leaves from.
Moving in tomorrow. *glee*
I was really dreading the thought that I would have to make a two hour trip to work on Monday. This will cut it down to 30 minutes. 🙂
Your all welcome to stay!
