We are offering a unique entry to the lovely person who most deserves this house next in their life. We look forward to hearing from you.

A cultured space with a friendly educated household, the en suite bedroom has an ornate plaster ceiling, dimmable chandelier, high architraves, ducted heating and artisan lead lighting. If you're inspired by design and unique craftsmanship, you'll be wrapped. In the interest of convenience, a tall built-in wardrobe is huge and accommodating with sliding mirrors that hide a great deal of storage space, including a hidden passage to your own spacious bathroom. This additional private space features a double shower, linen cupboard, large stone vanity and theater green-room style mirror with two levels of lighting making it a very clear space to use. The bathroom is further naturally illuminated by a skylight when not in use. There is also a fresh mattress with bedding, full bed frame and a large plasma flatscreen available to your room at no extra cost if you may appreciate any of that, no worries as i have all sorts of furniture and stuff in storage that i don't use.

The room is $330 per week, or +50 ($380pw) for couples. Rent is paid fortnightly in advance. This amount is also inclusive of all uncapped water usage, gratis. House bills are then down to three shared costs; Internet, elec and gas (the bills contribution is then predictably set as $33pw). Bond is 4 weeks rent to get the key.

The house is furnished throughout yet it is large for the few of us living here, so there is space to feature more if you have things you'd like to contribute, no worries. There are pull-down stairs up to an attic and a deep LUG that can fit a further 3 cars worth if you simply have heaps with you to store. In the laundry I have a reliable dryer and a lovely top-end washing machine that I recently gifted the house from David Jones. We otherwise have ducted heating, air-conditioning, 2 full size fridges, a glorious 6 burner oven that is a real feature and a BBQ within a privately decked, internal courtyard. There is also a bar in the living room that is usually used as a large surface to peruse vinyl records of the classic symphonies and orchestras. In the living room there is an open sky-lit ceiling, a back-lit drafting table if you're an architect or designer, and unique pieces of prized furniture such as Achille Castiglioni's Arco, to name a few basics.

With a high roof above and hallways to channel air flow, the house is uniquely comfortable in our peaceful street where a keen boat builder crafted it; if you enjoy architectural terms, it can be experienced as a mix of Spanish Mission–Californian Bungalow.

Our breezy cul de sac leads off the busy road, which is opposite a cheerful junior college; so local speed limits make road noise further gentle right around our home. The local train station has also just been fully refurbished after many months in construction and the area is peppered with European strada-window cafe's, which become a convenient asset when you're busy. We are looking for someone who is respectful, responsible and reliable. Ideally you are a passionate student or young professional who is clean and courteous, if that all sounds good to you too then huzzah – you're in for a treat!

I encourage you to say hi, you can visit the room, and we look forward to placing the person that loves it most.
