We have a large room with use of own bathroom, available immediately in a large landed house in the hearth of Serangoon Gardens. There is a front and back garden with a swing and plenty of space for gardening if you are into it...we grow some herbs :-)
We got this place because it has the charm of the past (almost like those hipster's cafe') like the beautiful old floor tiles.
See my profile to see pictures of the place! :-)
The room is available immediately and the rent is SGD1,200 per month excluding expenses (water, electricity). Starhub cable TV and fast dual broadband internet is included in the rent.
Expenses are shared three ways per month and they usually average around the Protected content mark. No owner staying and no agent fees required. You will be sharing the whole house with an expat couple and a lovely cat (see pics...). One month deposit and one month notice is required, which you will get back once your letting period expires. 6 months minimum stay would be preferred.
The nearest MRT station is Serangoon MRT which can be reached with a short bus ride 5 stops away. Numerous buses however take you all around Singapore and direct (non-stop services) are also available in the morning and in the evening between the CBD and Orchard area and back.
Serangoon Gardens is where the famous chomp chomp night market is. Many cool cafes, hipster's bars and nice restaurants are opening all over the neighbourhood. Supermarkets and other convenience stores are also minutes walk away from the house. The cozy Village shopping mall is at our doorstep, whilst NEX is the closest biggest shopping center which has cinema and a lot more, just 5 bus stops away.
