There is only one other occupant, myself. Am fairly quiet and can be quirky. Grew up in Sydney, have lived and worked in London most of my life. Recent post-graduate uni degree completed. Have hung out in extreme alternative scenes previously but now lead a fairly average life. Am somebody who has worked hard all their life without the silver spoon and perhaps has something to show for it.
Open minded - very tolerant of quiet or autistic individuals. Keeping in mind it's a narrow row of quaint but long terraces, the neighbours have to be respected. Late night clubbing or shift work ok. The house wouldn't cope with getting knocked about inside with drunken behaviour and has had some work done to it but it's lasted since the 1880's . . .
