This apt has a lovely, gentle ambience, loads of character and has been immaculately maintained. Sunny, light and warm with north facing aspect from living room and balcony and morning sun on bedroom sides. The area has a cosmpolitan feel but is also quiet and leafy. You are just a short stroll from restaurants, cafes, bars, markets and the sea. Close to Brighton Road, Ackland Street, St. Kilda Botanical Gardens, Carlisle Street and Ormond Road. One block from trams, short walk to Balaclava Station. 10 min walk or 5 min bike ride to St.Kilda Marina and the glorious sea. The apartment has many special art deco features including high ceilings. Gas fire place in living room. A lovely north facing balcony with lots of plants and herbs to sit in amongst to enjoy your morning coffee or tea. This neighbourhood is also known as "Poets Corner" and has much to offer the professional, international traveler or full time grad student. All the usual ammenties are included in rent (including cable and TV). Your room is average size, light and sunny (and quiet). It comes furnished (single but comfortable bed, clean linens, cushions, floor rugs etc.). There's an outlet for your own TV. The room has excellent wardrobe/storage space plus your own, secure back door exit to outside wooden stair case (keys to lock both door and screen door are provided). You also have entry and exit acess via the front door of course.


I'm a professional (musician/educator) who travels quite a bit. When I'm home I'm mostly working (completing an educational book), teaching freelance at schools and colleges or working from home (quietly). I'm out and about lots but also need my work space during the day. Though I do cook and eat at home I do most of my entertaining away from home, visiting with family and friends. I'm looking for a house mate who kinda does similarly (is busy, working and mostly entertains visitors outside the house). Someone mature and well versed in house sharing etiquette. The ambience and space is quite lovely but the communal area is on the smallish side. I'm looking to share with one person only. This will suit a busy but laid back professional who has a regular day time work/study schedule. I'm a recently returned ex-pat welcoming people from diverse ethnic backgrounds and cultures who are well informed with broad ranges of interests.
