Global Guardian, Charles - living space

Meet Global Guardian, Charles 

Charles currently occupies and secures a property located in Forest Hill and has been doing so for the past 4 years. He knew the previous Guardians who secured the property and gladly took over when they moved out. 

Charles' profession & why he loves what he does...

Charles is a multi-instrumentalist who predominantly focuses on his contribution to the band he is a part of, the ‘Framingods’. An alternative psychedelic group who would usually be found on tour or recording this time of year.

Thankfully, Charles is a man of many talents. He is also a skilled video editor and an animator, so has been working remotely for clients during the pandemic. 

For a sneak peek into his work, check out his band's music video that he created and edited, here.

At the moment, it’s jigsaws! “It’s been pretty idyllic putting some music on in the house and figuring out a 1000 piece jigsaw over time”. 

Here’s what our Property Guardian likes most about Guardianship living…
“How affordable it is...Despite the property being old, the rooms are very spacious and great value for money”.


Here’s what Charles thinks of our customer service…
“The ticket system has been very efficient and it’s usually a pretty quick turnaround to get something looked at and fixed”.


About Charles’ property & why he enjoys co-living...
Charles lives with three other Guardians who are close friends of his and which he actually grew up within Bahrain. 

All have known each other for a long time, have travelled together and have produced music together for a while now. Charles states “It’s super easy living together” We are delighted that Charles is able to enjoy his Property Guardianship experience to the fullest, with friends who are virtually family.

Types of people Charles feels would benefit from Guardianship…
“Someone who is looking for an affordable arrangement” and “someone who doesn’t have a lot of things (belongings), making it easier for them to move around”. 

Advice from a current Property Guardian…
“Like with any living arrangement, just be respectful and mindful of your fellow housemates and look for ways to improve your living experiences, for example, making small improvements to wherever you’re living along the way. Even though it’s technically a temporary arrangement, I’ve always found that making improvements has been great for my personal mental health, especially over lockdown. It has also made the house a really great place to be in”.

Temporary improvements such as putting up free standing photo frames and adorning your living space with rugs and ornaments can be a great temporary way to brighten up your space.
