Modern townhouse set in the heart of Newtown, just near beautiful Camperdown Park. Walk out the front door, turn right and you're a 5min walk from the Enmore Rd/King St intersection where the train station and major bus stops all are. Turn left and the buses on Parramatta Rd are just a little further up the street. 10min walk to RPA and 15mins to Sydney Uni (with some great coffee spots on the way). Ditch the car!! Everything worth doing in Newtown is within a 15min stroll, really.
Modern open plan design living, dining and kitchen with gas stove and dishwasher on ground floor. Powder room and laundry with washer and dryer. Each bedroom has air-conditioning/heating as does the living area. Four bedrooms total, with three sharing a main bathroom and the master with an ensuite. Common areas are furnished with the basics (a little more than pictured above), but if you have some pieces you want to bring, there's most likely space!
If you have a car, there's unrestricted and 2hr street parking out the front (generally very easy to score a park or you can grab a permit).
The room available is the Master. It easily fits a queen bed, plus a desk or dresser, and still has room for activities! It has mirrored built in robes, ensuite, aircon/heating & a great balcony with room for a little outdoor setting. Room is technically unfurnished, but the couple moving out are looking to sell their furniture (slightly different from pictured), so you could cut a deal with them if you need.
You two (or you, solo & wealthy) are a similar age to us, sharehouse-trained, similarly full-time employed, tidy and respectful of others and the property. Bonus points for excellent taste in music and picking up on my daggy film reference in this post.
$430wk paid fortnightly, and bond is 4wks rent, paid prior to moving in. Wifi is unlimited and $12pp/mth and other utility bills are split evenly between the 5 of us. (If you're moving in solo, net will be $15, and bills split by 4, obvs).
Hit me up if you have any questions, and of course to arrange a viewing. We’d like to meet potential housemates early next week (Sep 12th-ish), move in 1 October.
In the three single rooms are Leah, mid 20s, from Qld, a nurse, new to the house, superstar; Sean, early 30s, from the UK, is a manager of a super busy cafe, mostly keeps to himself when he's home; and Elise (me!)...31, from Melbourne originally, work at Sydney Uni, and basically a legend (I think I'm friendly, bit of an ambivert, happy to share a wine/movie/go out to a gig/trivia/understand about stressful days and rubbish people at work). We’re a quiet-ish house as people work a combo of cafe shift (early starts/weekends) and regular 9-5 hours, but we’re all friendly and will have a chat when we run into each other in the kitchen.
We share the chores and like to keep the place tidy. We all think wine is a great idea, and will head to the pub together for a feed when we can coordinate our schedules! (Also, I still consider myself new to Sydney so am always up for adventures).
