The unit is about a 5 minute walk from Balaclava Station (and I don't walk that fast), right by Carlisle street and St Kilda. The rooms are all HUGE - which is great, but it can get gold in winter.
Bedroom is unfurnished but the rest of the house is fully furnished (additions welcomed). Living Room - w/ Stereo, 2 couches, 1 TV (feel free to bring an upgrade), 1 Antique Baby Grand Piano (which is also for sale).
2 Bedrooms
Hallway large enough to ride a bike up and down
Kitchen - Gas oven and stove. Any kitchen things you'd need.
Bathroom - shower over bath, usual bathroom things.
Front Yard
Available Bedroom: Unfurnished, pretty huge, large windows. Recently repainted.


Rent 635 per month with water included, bills + internet are split.
All the rooms are freaking huge. The house gets cold in winter, but stays bare able in summer.
You'll be joining me and my cat, Roxy. A little about me:
I work Monday-Friday, like wine, very chatty but I have a mild capability of being quiet. I will correct poor grammar, and then make the same mistake 20 minutes later. I eat meat. I will keep the house clean, but my room will be a dark abyss of lost items 95% of the time. One day this may change.
Roxy is a cat. It's not uncommon for her to Meow and Purr. One day she might be comfortable to sit on your lap - but probably not.
The Unit:
Requirements for potential housemate:
- No Couples (sorry love birds).
- Must be reasonably tolerate of cats.
- Any gender
