Room for couple in Fitzroy townhouse available July, 2017.
A fresh, large, well lit room on first floor (2 windows facing east) coming available in our home in July. Fully furnished with double bed, desk, arm chair, mirror, heater, shelves and small built in robe, the room is ideal for a professional/studying couple. We're very sad to see our current housemates vacate to start their own home. We've found the dynamic has worked very well in the house and would like another couple to take their place
In the heart of Melbourne's hip Fitzroy, we're a stone's throw from groovy Gertrude St, and a short stroll to vibrant Brunswick and Smith streets. On the 86, 12, 11 and 109 tram lines, the city is only 5 minutes away. We're also walking or biking distance to the cbd. And the train station is nearby.
The house has a warm and homely feel, with comfy living room, and lovely garden settings in front and back so plenty of space to share or find some quiet space for yourself. A 4 bedroom terrace, you'd be living with 2 single women (24 year old master's of architecture student, and me, 37 year old ICU nurse) and my beautiful 2 year old boy. The baby sleeps in my room, and we have a spare room for out-of-town guests which all are welcome to make use of. We're all laid back and friendly. Yes, even the baby. He's a beautiful smiley boy, who loves people. He sleeps pretty well in the evening and so far hasn't woken anyone in the night (apart from his mummy of course).
For obvious reasons this is not a party house. No smokers or substance users. We're clean living, environmentally conscious and "predominantly" vegetarian (ie. we don't prepare any meat at home and would like to keep it this way). That's not to say we don't enjoy a glass of wine from time to time, or know the benefits of a good pizza place. And we all have our secret stash of chocolate somewhere. But we try to live sustainably, take care of ourselves and each other, and we're not out partying every weekend or bringing the party home. I guess we're pretty normal people.
We get along really well together and when we're home we often share a meal or hang out with a movie, drink tea and eat cake, and of course there's many moments spent helping Miles navigate this big exciting world. Ideally we'd like people who enjoy interacting with children. It is important that Miles develops a connection with the people who live here for his emotional development and security. But we also respect one another's personal space and have our own lives.
All the usual appliances are here: fridge, freezer, washer, dryer, oven, microwave, blender, food processor, TV/DVD, gas heating in the living room, and portable oil heaters in the bedrooms. In the summer the house stays pretty cool downstairs, but fans help in the upstairs rooms. The bathroom has a toilet, shower over bathtub, and seperate vanity area with large mirror. There's a second W.C in the back garden.
We keep the house very clean and reasonably tidy, and would like a couple who will contribute equally to house work and maintenance. Miles has his own playpen which keeps his toys under control. There's a vegie and herb garden out back, and a raised garden bed, that welcomes green thumbs. There's a local cat that also likes to pay us a visit for cuddles. Oh. We have a large TV but no free to air TV reception so viewing is restricted to DVDs, laptop connections (eg Netflix) and hard drives.
Rent is $1000 per calender month for a couple, plus bills. Bond is $450. WiFi is $15 p/person month. There is on street parking available with a permit for $90/year.
If this sounds like a home you'd enjoy living in we'd love to hear from you. The room is available from the start of July 2017 and we'd like to start interviewing early June.
