One of our roommates is going on a 3 month sojourn, leaving her ginormous room available for a suitable applicant!
We have a welcoming, communal, vegie-gardening, queer-friendly, sustainability-minded and basically awesome household prone to baking extravaganzas.
The house is located in a delightfully leafy pocket of North Fitzroy, super close to the 96 tram - you can ride to the city within half an hour! It’s an easy walk or ride to Merri creek, CERES, St George’s Road and 11 tram, Gelobar, Moroccan Deli-cacy… and it’s literally a 1 minute walk to Pope Joan through the back gate.
There’s a fantastic set up of solid garden beds out back and a pretty front garden with established citrus trees.
The house is huge, with classic Italianate design inside and out, including *that* amazing feature wall. There’s a reason we call it our Vinyl Palace: there’s a spectacular array of linoleum floors throughout.
About the room
The room is absolutely enormous - about 4 x 5 metres. It is fully furnished but it's so big that if you have some things you need to bring, you can almost certainly fit them. And there are other storage options out the back. I will also make sure to move some of my contents to the shed so that you will have some nice empty storage spaces to fill. I pay $880 per month - if your dates don't quite match I'm happy to negotiate something with you. For a couple we would charge $1000 per month. If price is an issue, get in touch and let's talk turkey! You could also potentially have access to my car and bike - to be negotiated.
Who are the housemates?
