This is a beautifully maintained, art deco apt on the top floor of a two storey dwelling, set in lovely gardens and away from the street. Exceptional views with a peaceful, tranquil ambiance, loads of character and immaculately maintained. Spacious, light and sunny with north and west facing aspect. One block from the corner of Balaclava Road/Carlisle street/Inkerman street and within minutes of cafes, bars, and restaurants. The private, 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. Apt has an incredibly comfortable interior with eat in kitchen 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, and buses. 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 fairly set-regular work schedule during the week. I cherish my space and privacy but totally up for a little social banter from time to time and glass of vino or cuppa on the deck.

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. I enjoy teaching, 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.
