Lovely older style apartment building (read bigger rooms, hint, hint) in a tree lined street in South Yarra. BIG 2nd floor apartment, separate lounge and dinning rooms (with an intense feature wall), big kitchen with separate laundry. Bathroom is separate from the toilet so no annoying waits while someone's in the shower.
Located off Toorak Rd, the Apt is under 15 mins walk to South Yarra station, 10 from Chapel street and about 5-7 to Toorak Rd trams. Entrance to Como Park is a few mins walk down the road, free cricket/football most weekends.
The complex is quite, the apt is at the back of the block with 6 apts in the same building. The neighbours pretty much keep to themselves and there's a security entrance to an internal stairwell. There's no air-conditioning but I haven't found this a problem, the place stays pretty cool in summer as it's double bricked, there's a gas heater in the lounge that's pretty effective. The bedroom available is a good size, fits a queen bed easily, has built in wardrobes and built in shelf. I lease straight through a landlord, I've lived here for almost 2 1/2 years and I sublet which is kosher with them. The one big win (in my mind) is that the bins are taken out mysterious every week with no intervention from me :)
Bills are approx as follows to give you an idea, they are totals so split between 2 :
Elec - Quarterly: $230
Gas - Bi monthly: $60-$90
No Water bills
Internet (unlimited), if you want to use it, not mandatory by any means: $30/month
Rent is paid monthly in advance (calendar month $1,170).
There aren't any "rules" specifically but sharing the cleaning of common areas is expected.


My name's Jacqui, 32 and I work full time in Docklands, I sometimes do long hours so during the week I pretty much keep it low key and just crash, sometimes go out for dinner but I’m otherwise pretty quiet. I like cooking, reading and Netflix and getting on with my health and fitness (NY resolution I will hopefully keep). I'm reasonably clean and tidy so someone who shares the same view is essential. I grow herbs and other plants that have magically survived my over-watering. I'm trying to be a gym person lately and keep fit so I'm up pretty early some days and sometimes work out at home.
Looking for someone of a similar age, people who work full time would work best, not looking for international students or people traveling through as I would like someone who's dependable for bills and rent.
Just looking for someone chill and up for a chat every now then when you catch me, otherwise I'm out with friends, sleeping, visiting my family or getting my nails done. I'm generally pretty quiet and use being at home to quiet my brain. Someone who doesn't mind me taking over the kitchen on food prep day is a must 😉
