Amazing 'penthouse' bedroom available in a stunningly airy, light-filled Kensington townhouse. 10 minutes to the CBD and a short walk to shops, amazing cafes and transport.
The room is pretty amazing - it's huge, with large windows and beautiful city views (as per the 'skyline photo.' It has heaps of light, and a large private balcony with Jasmine that smells amazing in flour.
It has a private bar/ display cupboard and a built-in desk. It's not furnished, but the rest of the house is. You're welcome to use a small 'futon' style mattress if you like, but you would need a cupboard or something for your clothes. It has split system heating and cooling, and the whole room can basically be opened up with a series of slide doors to make the room almost like an outdoor space in nice weather.
The designer bathroom is slab heated with a double vanity sink, full-wall mirror and luxury shower - It is down a few stairs though, and you'll be sharing it with 2 others.
The house is new and features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a huge modern kitchen and living area lit by northern skylights and an internal light well.
It's located on a tree-lined street around 100 metres from Kensington station and local shops and cafes. Flemington Village pubs and eateries are up the other end of the street.
You'll be sharing the house with Sophie, a 27y.o doctor and yoga teacher Max, a 29y.o lawyer who runs his own business, Shammi, a 28 year old software engineer and Kirstie, a 26 y.o retail manager. Max and Sophie will be moving on to London in February, so you'll also be involved in picking a couple to replace them. Max and Soph own the house, and we're looking for someone trustworthy and reliable who will care for the place while we're gone.
We're not around too much but when we are, we love to cook and share meals and sit around chatting and having drinks. We like to head out with our housies too - to explore the bars, cafes, and lifestyle spots of Melbourne.
The house is furnished and filled with indoor plants. The furniture is now different to that in the photos - it's much more homely with more plants. We split all bills and have a cleaner who comes fortnightly, so it's $10 per person per week. The room is $300 for a single.
We're looking for singles in their late 20's or early 30's who are fun, interesting and sociable, respect shared living spaces and like to keep things nice and clean. If you think you might fit the bill, please message on Flatmates, rather than phone, and make sure to tell us a bit about yourself. We look forward to hearing from you!
