A humble Newfarm abode.
My ideal housemate: Female, 25 - 35 years old, tidy, social but not a party animal (doesn't mind a chat / drink / dinner at the end of the day). Ideally I want a housemate I can become good friends with!
This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit in New Farm (half way between the Valley and New Farm park). It's on the 2nd floor of a historic block, has polished wooden floors throughout and high ceilings. There is also a balcony facing the rear which is large enough to entertain a few people.
The bedroom has two large double glassed windows with rolldown blinds. The room is currently furnished with a queen bed, bedside table and lamp, though can be unfurnished if required. There are large inbuilt mirrored wardrobes and shelves with storage space above.
There's a lovely leather sofa and large projection screen with Netflix etc (though I'm open to rearranging if you don't like a living room dominated by movies etc). Recently upgraded kitchen goods (with a fantastic coffee machine), cupboard and fridge space as needed etc. There's aircon in the loungeroom (which can also cool the main bedroom). Fast wireless throughout the apartment and washer and dryer opposite the bathroom. [Pictures coming soon]
A little about the area; there's a bevy of restaurants up and down the street and a few fun watering holes too. The 196 and 199 buses run every 15 minutes or so into and out of the city from just downstairs. The airport is a 15 minute Uber (or Airtrain from down in the Valley), Coles is a 5 minute walk down the road and the New Farm park / Merthyr Bowls club another 5 minutes on from there.
I work Monday - Friday in Training in a company over at Mt Gravatt. I'm usually up about 6:45 for a bite to eat and then off to work, usually home about 5:45 and just relax at home and cook or hit gym / dance class etc. Have no problems with guests (visitors or the overnight variety) a few times a week especially if they're funny and friendly, but any more than 3 nights a week needs discussion.
I've had the place to myself for a few months after my old housemate moved overseas, but I'm looking forward to some company again. I'm happy to wait to find the right person, that being said, if I contact you, it's because I believe we'd get along well.
Note: Bills capped at $20 a week, so $265 total. Bond will depend on the situation, I understand short term people need consideration so can do 2 weeks bond.
I'm not looking for someone to sign onto the lease... but it can be discussed. If you're set on a parking space, that can be discussed too.
