The house
The house is large and old, but it’s charming and has character. It has five bedrooms, a large main lounge, dining room with a 6 person table, a good-sized kitchen (with everything you will need), one main bathroom with shower (and a second toilet in the outhouse), a separate laundry, and a private tree lined outdoor BBQ area, with seating and a table. We also have a couple of orange trees that are starting to fruit too.

The house has plenty of space for off street parking if you have a car.

The location
The house is on Barkers Road and has multiple public transport options close by:
A 10 min walk to Auburn train station
A 15 min walk to tram 16 (down Glenferrie to St Kilda)
A 10 min walk to tram 109 (into the city via Victoria street)
A 10 min walk to tram 72 (Past Camberwell and into the city)

Glenferrie shops are a quick walk down the hill, where there are multiple cafes to grab a coffee or brunch, two supermarkets, and lots of takeaways.

We are also walking distance to Swinburne University.


Aaron, Lee, Tilley, and Tom are looking for someone to join our household and share our home while Simon is away. Could this be you?

Who are the current housemates?
We are a mix between professional workers and university students, ranging from 21-32yo. We also have a small black cat, called Lilly.

Current household dynamics
We are a friendly and social household, and often spend time hanging out together, having a beer, or going on little adventures. But each of us are independent, and like doing out own things and having time to ourselves. We enjoy having a laugh, and chilling out, and don’t take ourselves too seriously. We can’t be bothered with drama or passive aggressive types. We are looking for someone that is similar to us i.e. doesn't just hide away in their room all the time. We generally all cook separately, but occasional we like to go out and share meal together, or have a house dinner.

The Room
The room we have available is a single room, with a window and an additional study full of windows! It can easily fit a double bed and a desk has built in storage and is furnished.
Ideally we're looking for someone to fill the room from May 15th on, give or take a couple of days. It is available for two months, potentially three, but we can't fully guarantee the third month just yet.
The rent for the room is $780 per month (approx. $180 per week). We split the bills equally between the housemates, and that usually comes to around ~$50 a month.

Are you the person that we are looking for to join our house? If so, we would love to meet you, so contact us (via txt or call) and we will be in touch to organise a time to meet you and show you through the house.

Your potential future housemates.
