Downer, Canberra

Unfurnished room in a share house

Homely three bedroom, one bathroom house in Downer with the biggest backyard you’ve ever laid eyes on. We moved in just over a year ago with a vision to create a lovely communal home after living in an apartment together and feeling awkwardly high off the ground. We are vegetarians passionate about the environment, social issues, dumplings and gin. There are plants, books, couches, cats, chats, cold brew and rad hangs to be had. Great gas heating which works a treat in the winter. Summer is another story and you may need to abandon pants and get a bedroom fan (we have house fans and every window has good blinds to keep the heat out). We share a bathroom with separate toilet; it’s beautiful blue Royal Doulton, if you were wondering. Ideally we would be looking for an all-round great housebuddy. Respectful of us, yourself, the cats, environment, communal spaces and the general atmosphere. We don’t have a strict preference for vegetarians although we are looking for people with similar mindsets. Please find below a few questions about yourself to help us understand you; Please describe yourself with three likes and three dislikes. Do you like cats? (Please indicate) 1. I fucking love cats 2. They are OK and I will slowly begin to love them 3. I’ll see myself out Why are you looking for a place to live? What do you bring to the home? (This includes furniture, skills and aspirations) How do you feel about dinner parties, guests and house parties? What is your weekly routine (e.g. do you work full time, part time and what do your evening movements consist of?)

Room in a share house

Our home is across the road from Mt Ainslie nature reserve. Short walk to local shops, quick cycle or reasonable walk to the city and close access to buses. The house is spacious, sunny and colourful with a delightful verandah. We have lots of herbs and a little fledgling vege garden with aspirations for chickens. The room has lovely big windows, built-in wardrobe space and quirky wallpaper ;) The room also has a comfy Queen sized bed and desk. We have a warm and friendly homey home. We have interests in art, environment, politics, movement, self-development and cultural exchange etc. We tend not to watch much tv and would probably not be suitable for someone who is a large watcher. We value direct and thoughtful communication with each other and would expect that from people staying. We also value everyone contributing to keeping things around the house functional and the communal spaces clean and tidy :) Fyi the owners are sadly returning to the house sometime next year.

Looking for a new housemate for a townhouse in Ainslie, sharing with two female public servants in their late 20s. We are pretty central, 25 minute walk from civic, 10-15 minute walk to Braddon, 5 minute drive to Woolies in Dickson, but still far enough from the city and close enough to Mount Ainslie to feel you're getting away. Double garage with one car spot free. It is a pretty new place with reverse cycle AC and built-ins in all the rooms. You would be sharing a bathroom with one other, and there is an extra loo downstairs off the laundry. Bright living area with high ceilings and a great sunny courtyard out the front. Small outdoor area out the back. Low maintenance garden. Looking to rent immediately.
