Downer, Canberra

Room in a share house

Furnished room available for rent in a sunny relaxed older style and quirky house. Close to bus and shops. Housemates include an older professional, a 21 year old apprentice, plus small cute and friendly dogs. Large sunny backyard with herb/vegie patch and many lovely native birds. The house is relaxed but clean. The shower, bath and toilet are all separate which makes for easy sharing. I am respectful of privacy and personal space, and the house has two living spaces which is a bonus. I have shared with many undergraduate and post-graduate students over the years. Food and cooking is separate - and there is lots of space in kitchen cupboards and extra fridge. No smoking household. Rent includes internet/phone and household odds and ends. Electricity, gas and water are extra. (note that the advertised room is available from 28 February and a furnished spare room is available if a room is needed before then)

Lyneham, Canberra

Room with Own bathroom

One large queen bedroom (3.6m x 3.4m floor space), unfurnished, built-in robes, separate bathroom. Another bedroom available to store additional furniture, or use as a separate study/sitting room. Three bedroom house (main bedroom separated from other bedrooms); living spaces in between. Ducted gas heating. Transact cable internet wi-fi. Garage. Covered rear deck. Small, low maintenance garden (no work for housemate). Neat, tidy, quiet home - with music usually playing in the background (eclectic taste). Short walk to Dickson shopping centre (including Woolworths and the many restaurants), and two gyms (Flames and NextGen). Suit a mature, social, open-minded housemate. I prefer a sociable environment: a mate sharing a house, rather than a tenant. Sharing a drink and chat after work, the occasional meal, sitting down and watching the footy/TV/DVD together; not someone who spends every evening in their (bed)room. A fellow tennis/squash player or beach-goer would be great. Non-smoker requirement. Stable professional job who can pay rent on time. About me: 50, Public Servant. I walk to work most days (weather permitting), and keep regular hours. Non-smoker, and prefer quiet nights in or catching up with friends in a cafe/bar/restaurant rather than clubbing or partying. Love sports (prefer playing, but also watching) ... tennis, squash, soccer, netball. Enjoy beach (regular trips to the Coast on weekends in summer), cooking, theatre, reading, sci-fi movies/TV.
