Hola future housemate! Rob and Ruth here, 2 professionals in their late twenties/early thirties seeking a new addition to our home!

About the place... the pictures speak for themselves. Light filled, modern, large 2 storey house. We love it. 5 minute walk to the station and all the restaurants / bars / shops of the ever growing Footscray.

The room is on the second floor and has it's own balcony. Shared bathroom with Rob, which has 2 sinks and a massive bath tub (if that's your thing) so the shared space there is not an issue. The room is unfurnished, but has some storage space.

Other awesome notes:
NBN (yas!), $70 p/month split evenly.
Modern kitchen with 5 burner gas stove and dish washer
We have a cat (Luca) who is super friendly. Ruth will convince you that he is very special.

The only thing to note about the room is that it is not for any anyone who is sensitive to noise. This is because it is connected to the common area. So if you sleep before 9pm or after 7.30am on a week day then there is every chance you may hear people in the common area. The rent is cheaper to accommodate this.

Ideally looking for a young professional (9-5 routine) who has their own things going on but likes to come together as a household. This is not a party house, but we do enjoy our wine / beer / whiskey from time to time.

Your name will need to go on the lease, so you will need good rental history etc. for the application with the property manager.


More about the Flatmates

One male who has recently reached his thirties and spends it by just travelling more, and one female in her late twenties who loves her cat but refuses to become a crazy cat lady.

Rob - Hi! I am 30, and work in the Social Impact sector as a consultant, being very lucky that my work is my passion! I do the 9-5 but fairly often have to travel or work a bit later. Outside of this I run and box, and have recently taken up learning the guitar (in my room quietly!). With all this I will mostly keep to myself on the weekdays. On the weekends I like to get out in nature, to gigs, go to the footy in winter, and exploring the Melbourne night life. I am always planning my next trip - usually involving a trek into the wild.

Ruth - I'm a project manager for the Victorian government (restoring rivers and other waterways) and enjoy healthy living, cooking, and creative pursuits. I work full time and am generally out from 8 am til about 6:30 pm, but I pack in quite a lot outside of work. I love travel, dancing, going to gigs and plays, and usually like to go out for dinner 1-2 nights per week. I love wine, gin and chatting, but also value having time to write/read/listen to music etc. I have a boyfriend who lives close by and we alternate our nights spent together between both of our homes, so I'm not always around.

Luca - Luca is Ruth's 2-year-old cat who is very affectionate and curious and loves hanging out with humans and other animals. Luca's interests include: napping, chasing moths, inspecting grocery bags and watching TV/movies with strong female leads. He is very chilled out and really loves a good cuddle. Or not, if that's not your thing.

We are both socially conscious, chilled people who would like people of a similar mind. Let's just have a chat and see if we click :).
