Come and share our lovely terrace in the 'Fern!

Amy (late 30's) and Devo (a bit older) are a long-term couple who've shared this house with various wonderful people for over a decade. We both work full time, enjoy sharing a glass of wine or a beer, try to get to the gym/yoga and love film, travel, good food, catching a bit of culture (theatre/gallery/gig/festival) and going out for the occasional boogie.

We're looking for a decent human being like ourselves to take over the 'Garden View' front room as our current housemate is moving on to pastures new. Some flexibility about moving date.

We're pretty relaxed, so it would suit us if you were too, but it's essential you be properly house-trained and prepared to clean up after yourself. There's space to share time together and private room of your own to chillout as you please.

The house has a large kitchen with everything you need to get cooking with gas (including a dishwasher to make life easy) plus an elegant dining room. *Heaps* of great cafes, restaurants of all kinds (plus pubs and small bars) just moments away on Crown Street if you can't be bothered.

Comfortable lounge area opening onto a covered patio and a lush back garden.
Shared bathroom with shower (plenty of hot water) and separate downstairs toilet.
Fast unlimited wifi throughout house.
Outdoor smoking OK.

The room features a queen sized bed, desk, heater, fan, wardrobe plus large storage cupboard.
Own TV and Blu-ray player with USB input. Happy for you to set it up as you wish.

Location location location!
Central train station 10 mins walk (or 5 mins by bus).
Walking distance to Sydney Uni, UTS and a short bus ride to UNSW.
Surry Hills Shopping Village (Coles, butcher, chicken shop, green grocer etc) is right on the doorstop.

Bills are shared equally (so you would pay 1/3 of the amounts below):
Gas: avge $270 / quarter
Electricity: avge $390 / quarter
Internet and water incl in rent.

If that all works for you then come on down. Please drop us a line if you have any questions.

*Option to move in earlier by arrangement.*

Prefer long term stay. As a courtesy we would like a month's notice when you are ready to move on.

Fully furnished
Bed linen and towels included
Bike storage by arrangement
Street parking permit available
Garden; patio


The house is comfortable and inviting - it's a proper home and we like housemates to feel the same way about living here. Each of us has our own space and privacy but we take care of each other in the important ways: if there's a movie or take away going on we'll count you in, and will do our best to rescue your washing off the line if it starts to rain. Happy to share if we're cooking a roast or opening a bottle : ) but if you don't eat meat or drink that's also cool.

We aren't fussed if you're a joiner or prefer the sanctuary of your room. It's a home more than just a house, so the only expectation is you treat it that way, clean up after yourself, and generally leave things the way you found them. Easygoing but respectful probably sums up the vibe. Age isn't as important as attitude, but you do need to be house-trained and fluent in 'adult'.
