Flatshares made of professionals will generally work quite differently from student flatshares. Office hours, a more hectic lifestyle, less time for leisure, hobbies or parties: whilst professionals living together will also want to live with flatmates they really get on with, and with whom they can socialise, they will also need peace, privacy and time for themselves.
A quieter neighbourhood, more space, maybe an en-suite bathroom – this is what professionals are more likely to be looking for in a shared home – beside compatible flatmates with a similar lifestyle, of course.
This is the second part of our series featuring the most elegant and pleasant London flatshares we have come across.
A haven of peace for a busy professional
A spacious, bright home with large windows, in an area with beautiful houses and a village feel. This is a place where a busy professional can unwind.
Molly offers an attractive double room with excellent views just a few minutes minutes walk away from Richmond Park – a very green, pleasant and safe neighbourhood, which is, at the same time, very well connected to public transport.
Molly specialises in personal development and assists people who wish to raise the bar professionally or privately. She is renting out the room as a live-in landlady, and is looking for a professional between 40 and 60 with good references, who is tidy and enjoys a quiet and peaceful environment.
Catering for business travellers and short-term stays
And what about rooms for business travellers who need a pied-a-terre but may not be using it as a full time home, or for shorter lets of only a few months?
This is the segment Andrew focuses on when renting out a spare room in his elegant Battersea home, a mediterranean style 2 bedroom flat located in a secure development with 24 hour concierge. Battersea is famous for its major redevelopment projects (e.g. Battersea Power station), its excellent transport links as well as its large green spaces (Battersea Park).
For additional privacy, Andrew’s guest room has a state-of-the-art en-suite bathroom, a must for many busy professionals. This means that the room is also suitable for couples.
