Our house is a large 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom (both with showers) terrace, split over two levels. All bedrooms are upstairs and the available room is the 2nd largest in the house, which shares no common walls with the other bedrooms so there is lots of privacy. The room has a built-in, fits a queen bed, book shelves and desk - all very comfortably. We have all the essentials - fridge, TV, washing machine and I have just acquired a clothes steamer that all flatties are welcome to use :P
In terms of location - we are in a super convenient spot on Cleveland St, only a 6 minute walk from Central Station and a bus stop at the doorstep. Surry Hills shopping centre that has a Coles etc, and Crown St restaurants & bars are all within a 5 minute walking distance.
The essential requirements of our future housemate is being a professional, with a permanent job and having respect for common areas. Other must-haves include being friendly and willing to get amongst the household chores as we currently work off a cleaning roster, where each week we all take turns vacuuming, moping, taking bins out etc (no task takes more than 10-15mins so it's a good way to keep things clean without too much effort).
In terms of the nitty gritty details:
- 4 week bond is required
- You will need to join the lease that ends in Feb 2017, so you must be willing to make a 6-month commitment
- Rent is due fortnightly
- Bills are additional and split between the 3 housemates (e.g internet $20 per month, electricity paid quarterly etc.)
You will be joining two professional females in their 20's. I, the most recent addition, am 24 years old and in the final year of my law degree and work full-time. My other housemate, Nam, is 26 years old, from QLD and works full-time in the city as an IT analyst.
I am kept quite busy with work but am always down for a cheeky wine in the evening, catching up with friends or just a good old netflix session on the couch. Nam is similarly busy with work and is into her fitness, frequenting boxing classes regularly. She also likes catching up with friends and is always down for a netflix and take-out eve.
Our house has a relaxed atmosphere and a happy demeanour is welcomed. It would be nice if you were not adverse to a chat here and there, as although we both are extremely respectful of individual space and privacy, we would like our house to be a home and not just have a room occupied by a stranger/hermit :)
