Hi, I'm in my mid-30s and work in community services and am looking for a female housemate to share my townhouse in Ivanhoe (right on the border of Fairfield). The house has lots of natural light and is surrounded by gum trees.
The available bedroom is medium-sized, light-filled with in-built double wardrobes. The room is unfurnished at the moment but basic furnishings can be provided if required (ie. double bed, bedside drawers, etc). You would have your own bathroom with shower and large jacuzzi (separate shared toilet). The kitchen is open plan with dining area which opens on to a sunny courtyard.
The house is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine & clothes dryer. There is central heating throughout, wifi internet (unlimited), a central vacuum system and security alarm fitted.
There is a lovely private courtyard (with outdoor setting) that gets lots of morning and early afternoon sun. The garden is a bit overgrown with weeds at the moment but my hope is to plant a little herb garden/ vegie patch at some stage…but I’m a hack gardener so would love someone who might have more of a green-thumb than me to help out!
The Darebin parklands, a beautiful expanse of bushland with ponds, waterways and walking & bike paths are a five minute stroll away. It is a 2min walk to the nearest bus stop and a 10min walk to local shopping strip (or 1 min drive). There is also a local plaza with supermarket, grocer, butcher and chemist within 1km. Situated between two train stations that are a 15-20 min walk away or 5 min drive.
Rent is $220 per week and includes unlimited internet - however remaining utilities (gas, water & electricity) are additional (approx $25 p/w).
I am ideally looking for someone who is mature, friendly and who contributes to cleaning the communal spaces and who like me, leads a fairly quiet life when at home. I would be really happy to host an international student, so anyone who along with accommodation, is also looking to improve their English is encouraged to make contact. :)
