This is a beautifully maintained, art deco apt on the top floor of a two-story dwelling, set in lovely gardens and away from the street. Exceptional views from private rooftop deck garden. Peaceful, tranquil ambiance, loads of character, spacious, light and sunny with north and west facing aspect. Located between Balaclava Road and Inkerman street. Within minutes of cafes, bars, and restaurants in Balaclava Village and Chapel Street, Windsor. The rooftop deck is an extra special addition and provides stunning views of the cityscape with BBQ, chiminea, picnic bench, sun umbrella and lots of plants. Eat in kitchen, good size bathroom, and open living room space.

The neighborhood is leafy and a little quieter than the busier Balaclava and St. Kilda which are both within minutes by tram. Close access to trams, trains, Bus stop right outside. Alma road shops and Balaclava village within a short walk. Three trams stops to Balaclava station. 15 mins by train into CBD. The # 16 and # 3 trams go into the city via St Kilda beach. 20-30 mins into CBD by tram. 5-10 mins to St Kilda and Elwood beaches. Bus outside the apartment building also goes into the city. 2nd bike with helmet and bike lock also available to use.


Hi, I'm Chris. I'm looking for a quiet professional, student or traveler to share this lovely abode with. The room is medium size and comes fully furnished with flat screen TV, desk, comfortable bed, linen, bedding, internet, floor rugs, cushions, chairs and art pieces and wardrobe. I'm happy to remove furniture if required. I'm looking for an easy going, independent professional/student with a pretty regular work schedule during the week. I'm fairly private and enjoy my space and privacy but totally up for a little social banter from time to time and sharing a meal occasionally or a glass of vino or cuppa on the deck if time and weather allow.

About me

I'm an educator/vocal musician/composer/author who recently relocated back here after being based in NYC for a decade or so. I've traveled extensively and my work continues to take me away from time to time. I have a fairly busy lifestyle but like to relax when I'm at home or meet with good friends for dinner out. I enjoy teaching outside the home, piano/composing (use headphones if anyone's around and never in the evenings), gardening, the outdoors, nature, good food and wine, literature, art, and film, sports and of course, music which is a pretty important and integral part of my life and career. I enjoy the odd social gatherings but entertain mostly outside the home. I love the quiet, peace and tranquility that this apartment provides. Looking for someone who will enjoy similarly.

Welcoming people of all ethnicities, religions, LGBT friendly.
