Large shared property in Barkingside, IG6 Available Immediately

The Property

We have a fantastic opportunity for community living in a large property in Barkingside near Gants Hill, situated just 5 minutes walk to the Central Line. This property offers a huge amount of space as well as large communal areas. Rooms vary in shape and size – all rooms will come with an extra room for storage, or to be used as a studio/study.

“There’s really ample space, you’ve got a kitchen, it’s a large community house with a lot of space. It’s clean which is most important. When I walked in I thought, wow I can’t believe this place is a guardianship.” – Alex, Dot Dot Dot Property Guardian

There are a number of kitchens and bathrooms to share between the guardians, plus, plenty of communal spaces to make your own. This property also boasts a lovely garden.

The Location

Living here you’ll benefit from nearby amenities in Barkingside, and Gants Hill which is 7 minutes away by bus. There is also a large Tesco 7 minutes walk away and Barkingside High Street 15 minutes walk. Plus, the beautiful Fairlop Country Park is within 10 minutes walk. CLose amenities is not the only benefit of this location, living outside the hustle and bustle of Central London means you can enjoy some much-needed peace and quiet.

“It’s really a quiet place. It’s definitely peaceful and there’s not much noise. Very similar to High Barnet compared to other places in London and there’s a good commute. For me it’s about the balance between proximity to Central London and having my own space, I think the right balance is here.” – Alex, Dot Dot Dot Property Guardian

There’s also easy access into central London on the Central Line from Barkingside station which is a 15-minute walk from the property. Regular bus services to Ilford and Barking are 5-10 minutes walk away.

“It takes about 55 minutes into Central London, so 14 minutes walk to the station and then straight into the city. It’s quite easy.” – Alex, Dot Dot Dot Property Guardian. You can read the full interview with Alex here.
