Sunny Room available in Footscray Apartment

I have a fully-furnished and sunny room available from early February 2017 in my renovated 2BR Footscray apartment. The room is available for long or short-term rental (min. 3 months) and I am happy to negotiate the move-in date.

Footscray is fast becoming gentrified. There are now several hipster cafes, burger joints, barber shops and bars...with more on the way, no doubt. Thankfully there is still plenty of great local, ethnic food, art and culture, including African, Vietnamese and Malaysian.

The room is Fully Furnished with queen bed, bookcase, and linen. The rest of the house is furnished with everything you'll need to survive in the modern world.

Location: Footscray (near Vic Uni, Flemington Racecourse)

Available: Move-in date is negotiable but I will probably need around 3-weeks notice.

Nearby: African & Vietnamese restaurants, Maribyrnong River, Aldi, 82 Tram, Buses (does anybody still use these?), 20-min amble or 8-min tram ride to Footscray Station.

Rent: $215 per week plus bills.

Bond: there's no bond but I will ask you to pay the rent two months in advance just so I've got time to find a replacement if you decide to leave.

Bedroom: queen bed with linen, bookcase, open wardrobe built-in, window included at no extra cost.

Kitchen: well equipped with almost everything you'll need including two graters, stovetop coffee pot, rotating spice-rack and vegetable spiraliser!

Lounge: there's a couch, beanbag and sound system. I'm not in to watching TV so there isn't one of those.

Internet: I just use a mobile internet dongle so I don't provide unlimited WiFi, however I can offer you a Vivid Wireless modem. You'll need to pay for whatever plan you want.

Bathroom: bath, shower and sink (what else is there, really?).

Laundry: communal Laundry - $3 per load - bargain!

Off-street car park free to use.

Go West - It's the Best!
