About the property

Absolute best location in Northcote, southern end in the Westgarth area. Light filled 3 bedroom period style brick home to share with one female (myself) and my small rescue dog 'Maria'. PLEASE NOTE I have a temporary house guest - my best friend's 19 year old daughter Vida just arrived in Australia on a working holiday visa and is staying with me for a few months (maybe around 4 months) till she finds her own space. So during this time rent will be split 3 ways so only $217 each. When she leaves you'll just be living with me again and rent will be $300 (I pay a bit more - $350). Vida is a very mature, respectful, chill 19 year old vegan from Portland, Oregon in the USA. She's a quick witted animal lover, amazing jazz singer and does killer slam poetry!

The house has polished floorboards throughout. Pale creme walls. Ducted gas heating. Older style but very clean kitchen. 1 smaller but clean bathroom and laundry. Unrestricted on street parking is always available. Available bedroom is large size 3.6 meters x 4 meters. Will fit a king size bed, desk or couch, clothing racks and chest of drawers. Fireplace (decorative only), polished timber floorboards, white wooden venetian blinds. Light and bright room. The third bedroom is usually used as a study and you will have full shared use of the space and desk when Vida leaves. Its a great room big enough to do yoga, exercise, meditation, art or work / study.

Large backyard with rear roller door access from laneway. Yard is intended to be used for off-street parking however i'd prefer not to use it for parking so my dog doesn't escape. Home is fully furnished in a beautiful minimalist but cozy bohemian style with art and plants.

3 minute walk to Merri station right at the end of the street. 2 minute walk to High St, 86 tram to city and Fitzroy, Terra Madre health food store, cafe's, bars and the Palace cinema. The street is basically a dead end and is super quite and peaceful. Definitely not a party house. If you're looking for a calm, mature, quiet sanctuary space to call home then this is the place for you. Bills split evenly between 2 people - NBN Unlimited Internet ($30 each per month) plus electricity, water and gas. Bond is $1083.

About the flatmates

I’m a vegan, 41 year old female, working full-time in the CBD (work from home on Wednesdays) in climate change policy. I am also finishing my Masters degree in Environmental Management part-time. On weekends i'm usually studying all day and thus prefer a quieter home. I try to maintain a strong sense of self-awareness and value compassion, kindness, respect and open communication. I am a clean and tidy person and appreciate an aesthetically pleasing, organized home. I'm very independent and enjoy being alone, but love sharing quality time with my housemates, dinner, beers and Nordic noir crime series. Have lots of experience in share houses....was living on top of a mountain with 13 people in Malibu, California and survived quite well, but keen to live with just one other person nowadays.

You are vegan or vegetarian (or mostly veggie and happy to keep the home plant-based). Prefer a female, around 30+ years old, mature person looking for a longer-term eco-conscious home not just a share house. You are ok with joining the lease (resigning lease so 12 months remaining), will need to submit an application to the real estate agent. Hoping to find a likeminded housemate with aligned values of compassion and kindness. You LOVE ANIMALS and are extremely mindful and responsible with them. No additional pets allowed here unfortunately though. You have a stable income / job and experience in share houses / living harmoniously with others. You are independent and respect each others space but keen to connect and do some fun housemate stuff and are a great open communicator. Love a good sense of humor so bonus points if you’re funny in a daggy kinda way! You value a clean home and take the initiative to keep it relatively organized. No small children, backpackers or full-time students sorry. The home is furnished with everything you'll need, except your bedroom, but you’re also welcome to deck out the study / 3rd bedroom with your own desk etc when the space is free again. Plants plants plants galore always welcome! Please reply with some information about yourself, what your weekly routine looks like.
