A large Victorian home in Harrow
This large Victorian home in Harrow is made up of two interlinked semi-detached houses that span three floors.
The main living areas on the ground floor are made up of:
- two well-furnished lounges with TVs and a computer
- large kitchen with two ovens, two cookers and three fridge-freezers
- large dining area that can seat up to ten people
- laundry room with washing machine and dryer
- two toilets
There are 12 bedrooms across the two houses. These are on the upper floors, which are accessed by stairs (please note there is no lift). There are two bathrooms and two toilets on each floor. Every bedroom has a sink and is furnished with a single bed, chest of drawers and wardrobe, although people are encouraged to make their rooms their own by bringing their own furniture.
The house has a conservatory that leads onto a large garden with a sheltered seating area where people sit and chat and enjoy the fresh air. The garden is an ideal size for the house barbeques held in the summer, which families and friends are invited to attend.
This is a diverse household made up of people of various ages and from different nationalities, including British, Jamaican, Indian and Irish.
It’s a sociable house where people play board games, have coffee mornings and eat lunch together, although people also enjoy having their own space and privacy when needed. Most people go out regularly, visiting the library, going to the leisure centre and having lunch at the pub.
The house can often have an upbeat atmosphere, with a music set in the dining area where people play different types of music. Cooking is also a common interest in the house, with each person supported to prepare their own menus if they wish, along with learning cooking skills. Some members of the household do their own cooking and some also do their own shopping. Other interests in the house include reading, gardening and going to the gym.
This house provides Supported Living accommodation for adults with medium to low mental health support needs. It would suit somebody leaving residential care, with the aim to guide them to live more independently.
