With more people renting for longer, this has to be a great idea for letting agents and investors to emulate. As far away from HMOs as you can imagine, Professional Cribs has launched its first property in London.
Described as ‘professional house share done properly’ is delivered by the team behind Student Cribs, which has built a portfolio of 180 houses in 12 university towns since it launched in 2002.
Professional Cribs are aimed at 22-30 year old professionals, renting as a group or individually. Fully furnished period properties are renovated and decorated by interior designers and social space is prioritised, with large open plan living, dining and kitchen areas, aiming to combine the cosiness of a classic London home with the high service levels of institutional landlords.
Professional Cribs are priced affordably, inclusive of bills, cleaning and gardening. Additional services such as laundry can be added to the contract.
This house in West Ealing is the first of eight Professional Cribs in the pipeline, with the remaining properties undergoing renovation ready for January 2017. All are five or six bedroom period properties along the Crossrail route.
Priced at £210 per person per week, it is a stunning six bedroom Edwardian semi-detached house, a short distance from local rail and bus routes.
CEO Charlie Vaughan-Lee, said, “Professional accommodation in the Capital is typified by poor quality yet expensive studios and flats – here we have created collaborative home environments which recognise young professionals’ budgets and that they will want to live in.” www.professional-cribs.com
