Room with ensuite in a share house

Amazing property, great location. Down the end of our street (about 100m) is the wetlands with ducks and a riding track around it. Its about 3min bike ride to dickson shops. Close to civic and belconnen, and light rail when finished. It would seem there are a few peeps coming in from interstate, so I put this together so you can get a very good feel for the place. This has 360 degree drag-able zoomable views that work on your phone or browser It wont let me put that link here, but just message me for it, you won't be dissapponted. 1 x Master bedroom with ensuite in furnished house. Plus 1 x study walkthrough area, door can be closed to rest of the house. Rest of house shared with family of two children 2&4 year old boys (children in house week on week off) and a single dad 40+. Master is down other end from Dad and Kids room, you won't hear them get up, and plenty of privacy to shut yourself away, as well as a study room inbetween suitable for study/work/reading. Does not include exclusive use of the self contained flat out the back, which does not have cooking facilities. Will be considered as storage space and/or extra shared living area depending on circumstances. Central ducted gas and lounge reverse cycle electric. Wooden floors, new kitchen. Huge oak trees and established garden in tree lined street. Grass backyard, gazebo, garden bed, garden shed, sandpit. Front and back decks. Some extra storage areas in house, garage and flat. The master currently has a king size bed with mattress, a wardrobe, and two built in closets. I am flexible if you prefer to bring your own furniture, can put some/all existing furnishing in flat. I am currently using 4g only for internet, however I have had VDSL2 hooked up before, and am open to hooking it back up, it gets great speeds, it would be a shared cost. Nitty gritty : You will have exclusive occupation of the master bedroom and master ensuite bathroom, walkthrough study area (allowing multi tenant access to laundry at any time) side car spot in driveway off street. Shared use of common areas being the Kitchen, Laundry, Lounge/Family room, Front porch, back patio, back yard, veggie bed areas, garden sheds. Flat depending on circumstances.

Lyneham, Canberra

Whole property with 2 rooms for rent

Looking for a new roomie to join on a lease ASAP! The bus stop is across the road, it's a $15 uber to the city and Lyneham, O'Connor and Dickson shops are a 5 minute drive and the ANU and UC are both about a 10-15 minute drive away! It's a relatively quiet and cosy room and unit but we have air conditioning, internet, gas and electricity that we split. The house is furnished but the room isn't - it's available for $195-$205 as I've got the bigger bedroom! I'm a 22 yr old female ANU student studying Gender & Anthropology but am currently deferred and working as a barista at the cafes at the National Library and Botanic Gardens. I'm generally a tidy person and very respectful of boundaries and down-time, but I do love a good catch up and chill at the end of the day with a wine! Let me know if you'd like any more info about the house or would like to inspect :)

O'Connor, Canberra

Room in a share house

The property is a great student house. There is little to no insulation and we tend to use smaller space heaters in our rooms until the warmer months. There are a washing machine and a clothesline that catches the sun really well during the day. The backyard is large and the house is across from a nature reserve, which gives the house a bush feel. It is in a great neighbourhood in O'Connor/Lyneham. The rooms are spacious and there are plenty of windows for natural light during the day. The property is close to CIT, UC and ANU. It is a 15-minute walk from the house to Tilly's and Lyneham shops, and about 20 minutes to O'Connor shops and the Duxton. The number 8, 1 and 3 are all nearby resources to travel to Belconnen, Civic or Dickson. A bike is also a great way of getting around, as it is a 15-20 minute ride to ANU sport and a 20-25 minute ride to ANU popup. The room itself is on the far East side of the house. It is the furthest from the kitchen and living rooms. It comes with a bed frame, desk and shelving or unfurnished. Please get in touch with us about a viewing if you are interested in the house.

(Please note: preference is for housemates in their late 20s - early 40’s) Good sized unfurnished bedroom (3.8m x 4.3m), with large windows and leafy view of front garden. Cupboard storage built in. (Note: pictures show room furnished) Spacious kitchen and dining area (catches the morning sunshine) with a view over the large backyard and Mt Ainslie. Good sized living room (furnished) Bathroom and toilet pretty basic but clean. Outside laundry (no washing machine and you're welcome to bring one) Additional storage available in back shed. What's nearby? O'Connor shops is a 10min walk away. Features cafe, several restaurants, pub, pharmacy, IGA. (and the awesome Polish Social Club). Transport? 3 min bike ride to O'Connor shops 5 min bike ride to ANU 10 min bike ride to Civic Off street parking House <50m from bus stops No.8, 936/937 Pets? Yes to cats. Noise? The bedrooms are at either end of the house, good solid walls and the neighbours are pretty considerate too. Admittedly there are possums in the roof at the moment but I'm working on that. Heating? House is unheated, I'd recommend BYO heater for your bedroom and for the kitchen etc it's a 'put on another jumper' kind of deal.
