Recently returned from overseas and looking for someone to share with me now that I've moved back into my apartment.
It is fully furnished, ground floor, 2 bedroom art deco in beautiful South Yarra, just south of the Shrine of Remembrance and close enough to St Kilda Road as to practically be in the CBD. Near all forms of public transport (tram, train, bus & taxi), close to Toorak Road & Chapel Street shopping strips, but in a quiet leafy area of its own, nestled in between Fawkner Park & The Royal Botanic Gardens.
Apartment contains everything you'll need to live in (since I already live here) including bed linen, towels, crockery & cutlery. Additional features include: dishwasher, washing machine, gas cooking & heating, shower over bathtub, flatscreen TV & DVD player, wireless broadband internet (included in rent), communal courtyard, security entrance.
A residential parking permit is also available if you need it.
Bedroom contains double bed & bedlinen, storage shelves, wardrobe, light & leafy outlook.
Ideally, this would suit a professional/traveler/international student without much stuff of his or her own, but who will be in Melbourne long enough to make it a viable alternative to a backpacker hostel or airbnb. A backpacker hostel you wouldn't find nearly as nice. An airbnb wouldn't be available nearly as long.
What you'll really appreciate, though, is the location. It's like the Melbourne equivalent of living in the Champs-Élysées, or Park Avenue. You'll be amazed at how central you are to everything, while not actually being in the thick of the urban congestion. It's close to all the CBD campuses like The University of Melbourne, Victoria University, RMIT, etc. Come the warmer time of year, you are up for great strolls around the neighborhood and within easy distance of all Melbourne's cultural events like the Australian Open, AFL Grand Final, Moomba, et al.
I work predominantly from home, as a freelance script editor/copywriter as well as miscellaneous odd jobs on the side that I go out for. I tend to keep it quiet around the apartment, might have friends over occasionally but generally prefer to go out for my fun. So no doof-doof or general raucousness. Might watch a bit of TV here and there, but not a great deal. Don't smoke (and can't live with a smoker, due to asthma), rarely drink -although you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise by the amount of duty-free liquor I've acquired from my various travels! Not a slob -but not a cleanliness-pedant either. Like to keep some relative order but won't get stressed by dirty dishes a couple of days old. Gosh, what else? Non-religious, politically progressive, anything else you need to know: feel free to ask!
