"En suite bathrooms in shared accommodation in London are a rarity at this price in private rental accommodation."Shannice James-Mcfee, Marketing and Lettings Manager at Network Homes
Each Key Living apartment has four private and spacious en suite mini-studios, each fully furnished with a bed and work station, a large shared kitchen and dining area, well designed and equipped with modern appliances.
The mini-studios are spread across three buildings and there is a good amount of storage space for each resident.
You do have to look after your own mini-studio, but a professional cleaner will come in once a week to look after all shared spaces and there is also a free skilled handyperson service if you need any work carried out. The team is available out of hours if needed. Residents can report a repair to the 24-hour contact centre or on the Network website.
Residents can benefit from superfast internet, a communal garden and regular grounds maintenance.
Saving money and short tenancies
Having a safe, secure and comfortable place to live is essential for any professional working in London. As a leading housing association, we open up opportunities for as many people as we can.Shannice James-Mcfee, Marketing and Lettings Manager
We’re running a special offer of two month’s rent free when signing a 12-month tenancy! We can also offer you one month rent free when signing a six-month tenancy. The rent-free period will be spread over the course of the tenancy term. Normal rent is £702.36 a month, but under this special off it’s only £585 per month for your first year. This includes council tax and all bills and all the other extras - giving you a hassle-free experience.
We offer assured six-month tenancies, which are extended on a rolling monthly basis. The flexible tenancies mean residents have somewhere safe and secure to live straight away while they settle into their new job and new surroundings and save on commuting.
Shannice adds: "Our affordable rented homes allow people to consolidate their monthly outgoings into one payment. There won’t be a surprise heating bill in the winter as all bills and council tax are included.
"This allows residents to know exactly how much their outgoings on rent and bills will be. Key workers essential to the effective running of London and the surrounding areas, and our Key Living properties provide a place for these workers in the heart of the city. "
For companies, we also offers extended leases, so they know they always have quality affordable accommodation available when required. Properties can be managed by the individual company, with repairs service, maintenance and cleaning still included, or by Network Homes.

For people moving to London for the first time getting a job in a new city is a great first step on the career ladder but moving there on your own can be a daunting experience.
But sharing with others doing similar work can bring benefits of supporting one another. It enables residents to find like-minded people to spend their time with, for example third sector workers or education professionals.
Employers can also rent mini-studios and single rooms from Network Homes for their employees and this sharing approach can help foster team spirit among staff.
Staying at Green Lanes residents can also get familiar with popular destinations on their doorsteps, while also having a safe place to live.
