Don’t be fooled by the exterior, the home is the ugly duckling that is warm, clean, tidy and cosy on the inside.
The owner recently repainted internally throughout, and last year rewired and replumbed the home to ensure that it is safe and sound.
The home comprises 2 bedrooms and were looking for someone to share:
• Bedroom available for tenancy
• Carpeted
• Currently unfurnished, however can be furnished which we can discuss during inspection
• Bathroom
• Shower
• WC
• Vanity
• Shaving cabinet with Mirror
• Large washing machine
• small cupboard
• towel rack
• Hallway
• Frosted sliding window that lets plenty of natural light in.
• Kitchen is reasonably spacious, offering
• Small dining table with 2 chairs
• Fridge
• Oven & cooktop
• Plenty of cupboards
• 2 stools to dine at benchtop if wanted
• Lounge Room
• New gas heater that warms the whole home well.
• French doors lead onto a large undercover north facing deck.
• French doors - same lock / key as front door.
• Exterior
• Google me and you’ll notice that I’m looking tired on the outside but healthy on the inside.
• Large north facing undercover deck with access from the lounge room & kitchen – this is a sensation al extra, especially during summer. There are a number of trees next to the deck that provide shade during the hotter months and block out general street noise.
• Rear yard is large and open with access from a lane. The rear gate is padlocked for your security. The landlord will cover the costs of general maintenance for this area.

My name is Pansy. I am laid back, friendly, mature minded, and a professional female working in a corporate office 9-5 Monday to Friday.
I have just moved from being in a live in relationship to being on my own and it would be great to have a friendly ‘like-minded’ female to share the house. I have lived in shared situations before and consider myself to be a considerate flatmate. I like to keep my home clean and would say I am an organised person.
I enjoy my social life and love a good laugh. I like to go exploring and go out with my friends on weekends but tend to spend my quiet time at home during the week. Respect for each other's privacy, peace and quiet and personal space is very important to me in a shared house situation and I would prefer applicants that are mature and independent. I believe that it is important to be able to have honest, open communication in a shared environment and I believe I am a very approachable person.
It would be nice to live with someone who is happy to share a meal and a glass of wine or a beer on occasion but I also understand if you prefer to arrange your own food/meals.
