Gorgeous, older style quirky brick home with plenty of character. Floorboards and tiles throughout. Just the one big bathroom (with the best showerhead ever) with a separate toilet and laundry at the back. Kitchen is big enough for dining table and has dishwasher, gas stove top, Nespresso coffee maker, and heaps of cupboard space. There's also a wine rack but unfortunately the wine doesn't stay there for very long! Backyard is typical size for inner west, but plenty of room for bbqs and has a shed for storage. House, and esp the front where the bedrooms are is super cool so is brilliant in summer. Loungeroom is big too with gas outlet for heating. Bedrooms can be closed off to rest of house to minimise noise. Bedroom available has built ins and fits queen bed, bedside, tallboy and small desk.
Current housemate will be taking washing machine, one couch, vacuum and a lot of kitchen stuff so we'll have room for yours if you have them, otherwise I'll buying my own.
Summer Hill train station is an easy 8 min walk (and is a 22 min ride to Wynyard or 8 min to Newtown), Lewisham West light rail stop and the 413 bus from city to Campsie 4 min walk. There's generally an Uber around too. My old housemate rode her bike to the city most days.
Summer Hill itself is a gorgeous little suburb and the main strip has a really nice vibe with Italian, burgers, fish n chips, Indian, Thai and Japanese. Red Penny 1 is a beautiful restaurant in the old post office and Temperance Society is a cool small bar. Heaps of cafes for coffee and brunch. The IGA is really good, and they have a great place for small goods next door. Both Leichhardt marketplace and Ashfield mall are less than a 10 min drive. Hairdressers, beauty salon, gym and tennis courts all on or just off main street too.
Hi! I'm Emma, and I'm a 38 year old insurance professional. I work office hours in the city and am also a volunteer coordintaor for a dog rescue group. During the week I'm either working, walking my dog, playing netball, staying on top of my volunteer emails or failing miserably at trivia. Sometimes I like to just crash in front of the tv too. Weekends are spent relaxing, catching up house stuff, markets, dinners or just hanging out. Some weekends it feels like I haven't sat down, other weekends I like to potter around and watch movies. I'm the sort of person who'll bring in your washing if it rains, buy toilet paper before we run out and I've always got a bad joke handy. I like things generally clean and tidy but won't lose it if the dishes sit in the sink for a day or stuff gathers in the lounge room. I used to live in the Blue Mountains so get back there every 2nd or 3rd weekend. Happy to consider meal sharing depending on schedules and happy to share all the staples.
My dog Hunter is a 3 year old female kelpie and a superstar. She's happy, friendly, completely house trained, great with other dogs, well behaved, doesn't bark, cry or whine and doesn't shed much fur. I try to take her wherever I go and she is walked every morning. I'm also a foster carer so may have a 2nd dog around waiting to be adopted (including puppies) but this is strictly by agreement. If I am away for work etc she goes to her dad's house so there is no obligation to look after her (unless you wanted to). It would be nice however if I was working back or out after work that you would be ok to feed her. On street parking. Gas cooking and heating. Quiet.
