Our awesome house of five on Pearson Street is losing one of its housemates. We need someone just as great to step in and fill her shoes.
The house is a beautiful double storey Victorian terrace with a huge backyard, enclosed fireplace, big kitchen, two bathrooms, covered shed / bike storage and NBN internet.
The upstairs balcony looks across to Gillon Oval, and we have a great local cafe and a pub a just few minutes walk down the road.
We are 10 minutes walk from the 19 tram on Sydney Road.
Five minutes walk to the 55 on Melville Road.
Seven minutes walk to Brunswick train station.
Two minutes walk to the 508 Bus on Victoria Street.
There is also freeway access on Moreland Road, which is no more than five minutes by car.
On top of all that, we have unrestricted all-day parking on the entire street, so finding a park is never a problem.
Other perks of the area include multiple gyms, bike tracks, tennis courts, parks, food vans, swimming pools and many other great facilities.
Functional Vegetable Garden
There has always been a great house dynamic. Its homeliness, layout and great outside spaces all lend themselves to spontaneous hangouts. We buy our own food and cook our own meals, but we often enjoy meals together. And while we all value time to ourselves, equally we enjoy a vibrant social dynamic and so with this in mind we are looking for someone who buys into this same shared spirit. After all, it’s nice to come home to a warm, friendly home after a long, challenging day, isn’t it? And our different schedules mean that time, space and privacy can always be found.
The house has always had a nice balance between boys and girls, and so we are looking for a girl to maintain the ratio.
The rent p/month of the available room is $699.40 which is inclusive of $90.00 for bills. This covers absolutely everything, including rent, gas, water, electricity, Internet and our gardener who comes and mows lawns/trims hedges etc once every fortnight /month.
We have a shared house account which we all pay our rent into before the end of each month. All expenses are paid out directly from there.
The account is always in surplus to accommodate for bills and shared house expenses like cleaning products etc.
Once or twice a year we tend to get a heap of bills all at once and there may not be enough in the account to totally cover the bills. In this scenario, we all just throw in an extra $50.00 or so each, but it is a rare occurrence.
Tenancy Transfer fee $110
House Essentials $100
Leaving Notice 4 weeks
