Room in a share house

We are looking for a housemate for our 3-bedroom house in Dickson. The house is in an excellent location - right next to the bike path, Dickson wetlands and sports fields, and a few minutes from the Dickson and Ainslie shops. The city or ANU is a 15 minute ride on the bike path, Belconnen around 30 mins. The room available is large with a wooden floor, unfurnished*, but with a built in wardrobe and good block-out blinds for winter. The rest of the house is fully furnished but again there is plenty of room for your things. The room will be available from Monday 9th April. We have a private landlord who is great, and there's a flat in the backyard which is rented separately. We have a big garden with lots of nice grass and trees (maintained by the landlord!) and a compost bin. *We have a spare single bed and a few odds and ends if you need them

The place is really flexible with decorations as the house is being demolished at the end of the year. We have a study, dining room, garage and 2 living rooms (one is a movie room/guest bedroom).

Situated in Braddon, you'll get to live a short walk to the centre of Canberra or even to the Ainslie shops. Dickson shopping center is a very short drive away. This property has a great view and has a decent balcony to lounge on throughout the year. The complex is situated close to Northbourne avenue and when the windows are closed, it does a great job of keeping the noise out. The house is pretty well insulated and does a good job during the winter and summer. There's a decent living area with air conditioning and the furnishings are modern. You'll have a decent sized room with ample cupboard space, your own air conditioner and an en-suite. The room itself fits a queen bed easily and bed side tables with a decent amount of room to spare. Hopefully the pictures give a clear indication of the size of the room (bedding and bedroom furniture not included) itself and of the living area. All you need to bring is things for your room, everything else from the kitchen to the lounge room is pre-existing. You will have a restricted access car spot and a storage shed in a secure underground parking garage.The apartment complex has a small gym and a nice courtyard area on the ground floor. Rent is $540 a fortnight, and internet is $35 each (500 GB - VDSL2). Electricity is paid as the bill comes in. The room will be available from around the 22/23 April 2018.

Hey Guys :) I have a cute 3 bedroom old school home with timber floorboards and a fireplace to suit. The home is fully furnished (excluding bedroom) and has a beautiful leafy green aspect to the area. The home has an incredibly location being only 1 min from local shops and cafe's, 5 mins to the CBD/ ANU and 5 mins to the Parkway. Of course if you prefer the cheaper greener option its a 2 minute walk to a bus stop and also only a 12 min ride to the city if cycling is your thing! :) I am a 26 yr old male business owner that lives for the outdoors, travelling, enjoys socialising, writing music and a good conversation. I have two beautiful alaskan malamutes (also enjoy outdoors and conversation). My roomie is 36 yr old male that works hospitality, loves to socialise and also owns a small dog. There is one room available that is medium size, it has timber floors and can have a wardrobe and draws if needed. In general we are looking for someone fun, positive, clean and tidy, easy going, doesn't mind a conversation and also loves dogs as we have three :). The rent includes internet, netflix, electricity, water & gas. :) If you are interested or have any questions feel free to get in touch. Enjoy your day! :)
