This is a beautiful two storey hardwood floor charming terrace house on a quiet street on the Bondi side of Bondi Junction between Bondi Road and Birrell Street with lovely neighbours in a great proximity to both beach (Bondi, Tama and Bronte) and junction. It has a private front patio with herb garden, backyard with hammock, compost, BBQ and dining set- and lots of space. It is light and airy and also stays perfectly cool in summer and warm in winter without the need for additional heating or cooling. Also have some room in the back open shed for storage. I love Bondi but love living in the junction more as easy access to train station and functional junction shopping and so much quick getting to/from city or out of Bondi. Easy dip down Bondi Road or Birrell Street to Bondi, Tama or Bronte beach- so close I do it before work most mornings. Nice area, street is mostly long time owners or renters and there will be no drunks or loud parties disrupting your sleep like down at the beach. This house is older style and has a few quirks but is clean, organised and freshly painted with good air flow, very high ceilings and crown mouldings and really good vibes. The room is downstairs and just as you walk in the front entrance with the lounge room right next to it (I never use the lounge room so it's basically yours!). My room is upstairs and out of your way and I'm a very mindful housemate, tip toeing and not stomping on floors above your head. The room includes a double bed (a hardwood futon style bed with very comfortable mattress, three layers of foam and underlay to make it super comfy and brand new foam memory pillows), a large set of drawers, and hanging rack for clothes. At the moment there is also a large bookshelf there filled with books but it can be moved out if need be to make room for a larger wardrobe or whatever else you like. Bills are $50/week in addition to rent (paid weekly please to help with cash flow and shorter term stays) which includes electric, gas, internet, water (we are separately metered here so have to pay water), and a fortnightly cleaner. Happy to up the cleaner to weekly if both parties happy to chip in a bit extra. ;-) My only house rules are shoes off please and no smoking. I prefer environmentally conscious folk who are happy to recycle, compost and reduce waste and anyone with a green thumb would be most welcome! Otherwise make yourself at home, be cool , have fun and enjoy this awesome space!
I'm a California transplant late 30's who moved here about 14 years ago. I love the beach, yoga, eating healthy, making kombucha but also believe life's all about balance so not scared to throw down with some pizza on occassion. I like a clean house and am a full supporter of having a regular cleaner come in to do the gritty stuff but also am not precious about my things. I am very amicably separated from my ex husband and have a school aged child who lives with me 3 days a week (or not at all if I'm travelling for work) but whose room is upstairs and out of your way. My room is also upstairs and out of your way so you will feel like you have much needed privacy in your own space. I may be a parent but I'm also a normal person and love a night out or in, adventuring and living life to the fullest. I am either out at work events, down at the beach, or out with my daughter somewhere but do enjoy a good chat when I'm home (or can respect privacy with anyone who prefers some down time for themselves). I work from home a few days at the moment, but the house is big enough no one would be in each others way. The backyard is also great with fairy lights, a BBQ, compost, hammock, laundry line and dining set. Passionate about sustainability and spicy food. ;-) I'm a morning person and tend to be up (albeit very quietly!) around 7 something and down at Icebergs when possible for a swim, sauna and yoga.Looking forward to someone wonderful to share this beautiful space with.
