Hi - I'm Chris. I'm looking for a quiet, discrete professional, student or traveler with a fairly well developed sense of etiquette to share my home with. This top floor apt has lovely views, a peaceful, tranquil ambience, loads of character and has been immaculately maintained. Spacious, light and sunny with north, east and west aspect. One block from the corner of Balaclava rd/Carlisle st and within minutes of cafes, bars and restaurants. The private, roof top deck is an extra special addition and provides stunning views of the city scape. It has an incredibly comfortable interior with eat in kitchen and open living room space which means two people can share with plenty of privacy.

The neighborhood is leafy and a little quieter than the busier Balaclava and St. Kilda which are both within minutes by tram away. Public transport all close by. Hospitals, shopping center all within minutes. Two trams stops to Balaclava station. 15 mins by train into CBD. The # 16 and # 3 trams go into the city via St Kilda beach. 30 mins into CBD by tram. 5-10 min to St Kilda and Elwood beaches. Bus outside the apartment building also goes into the city. Bike with helmut and boke lock available to use.


I'm just one person looking to share with one other person. The apartment is very special and will suit someone who really appreciates the finer things in life. The room is medium in size and comes fully furnished with flat screen TV, desk, single bed, bedding, internet, floor rugs, cushions, chairs and art pieces. I'm happy to remove furniture if so required. I also have a 2nd bike (helmut, lock) available. I'm looking for an easy going, independent, working professional/student whose work/study schedule is regular (9-5 basis something similar).

Welcoming people of all ethnicities, religions, ages and genders including LGBT.

About me

I'm a educator/writer/musician who was based in NYC for a decade or so and relocated back to Melbourne two years ago. I've traveled extensively and my work continues to take me away from time to time. I have a fairly hectic, busy lifestyle but like to relax when I'm at home or meet with good friends. I enjoy gardening, the outdoors, nature, good food and wine, literature, art and film. I also enjoy sports and of course music is a pretty important and special part of my life and career. I enjoy social gatherings but also cherish my space and privacy. I enjoy the quiet, peace and tranquility that this apartment provides. Looking for someone who who will enjoy similarly as a home.
