Large private room for a couple or single in a surprisingly spacious blue and brown cottage with large backyard.

A 90 second run from Thornbury Station, 5 minute walk to trams 11 & 86. Markets and necessities nearby. Note that the room is not suitable for light sleepers with the train and crossing is nearby. The room can be semi furnished if needed, or left empty.

The rest of the house is furnished and has very little storage space. There are four resident fish and sometimes one neighbourhood cat. Pets welcome.

This place isn't a palace, but is a bit special if kept clean. A knack for counteracting the slopes in the floor with plants or wood pieces is handy, as is the inclination to pull weeds every now and then to keep the gardens under control.

The affectionately named 'Ski Lodge' or 'Clap Hams' house will be demolished no earlier than February/March 2017 to make way for more apartments. And a sad day it will be. Rent for the room is paid monthly at $1386 ($693 each per month), not including bills and internet. Short term welcome. Travelers welcome.

More about the Flatmates

You'll be living with me, a 36 year old female working 4-5 days a week at University of Melbourne. I love hearing music/fun things around the house and can be found; pottering in the garden, experimenting with cooking, away on weekend adventures, watching live bands/movies, asleep, or trying to fix something that may or may not be broken.

I like a house that gets a wipe over once a week and is kept clutter free. (Clear house, clear mind, or something) I'm an outside smoker and enjoy a beer/meal/movie/chat with housemates when our schedules collide.

I'm looking for a no drama, chilled out couple to share and enjoy this space. Send me a message with a little about yourself if this sounds like your cup of tea.
