Unfurnished room in a share house
Updated | $155

Downer, Canberra

Unfurnished room in a share house

The physical house itself is undoubtably the nicest and most modern share-house around, feeling like a family home. All appliances including the fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer are already installed and work great! The entire indoor and outdoor communal areas are all fully furnished, making our home the perfect share-house to slot right into. The property is just over a 5 minute walk to the Phillip Avenue Metro stop, 5 minute walk to both Downer shops and Watson shops. It is less than a 20 minute cycle into the centre of the city/ANU and a 10 minute bike ride to the Old Canberra Inn. As the house is quite modern there is central heating throughout the entire house and it is extremely energy efficient. Our massive backyard is perfect for sunset watching and drinks whilst still offering privacy. We also have an enclosed back porch that has proved on many occasions to be the perfect way to start your day with a coffee and end it with dinner. The entire house has central heating, including all indoor communal areas and bedrooms.

Unfurnished room in a flatshare

Looking for someone to take over my half of the lease and my room in an amazing little place. Located on Atherton St in Downer, it’s about an 8 minute walk to the closest tram stop, about 10 minutes to the Gang Gang cafe and about 20-25 minutes walk or a 5 minute drive to the Dickson shops. The house is a little two bedroom place, with the biggest room up for grabs. The room is unfurnished with a large built in wardrobe and plenty of space for a double/queen sized bed, bedside tables, desk and a chest of draws. The rest of the house is mostly furnished but if you have a washing machine or kitchen stuff it would be greatly appreciated! The house is freshly painted throughout with brand new windows put in earlier this year. There’s a large backyard shared with the neighbours including a little bbq area, communal washing line and a smaller line on the side of the house. Gardening is included in the rent, so no need to worry! Available by the end of the month but can be flexible on the date. Please feel free to message me with any questions and times to come have a look! Please note as you will be taking over the lease you will need to complete an application form and also get approved by the owners.

Room can come empty or furnished (e.g. bed, wardrobe, bedside table, desk etc. or partially furnished - happy to let everything go pretty cheap). Massive living area, fairly decent nbn speeds, central heating in winter, beautiful garden views (mostly Australian natives so fairly low maintenance, although if you enthusiastic I am sure you can take over my initial ambitions for a garden! - also peach, plum and apricot trees which fruit in late spring/early summer), plenty of storage and cupboard space. There is outdoor and plenty of indoor entertaining space too! Close to Dickson shops (5-10 minute walk, right near bike path to ANU so would be great for a student! - roughly twenty minutes on bike, like 1 min?? on bike to Dickson shops, 20 minute walk to tram, 5 - 10 minute walk to convenient bus stops). Right next to offleash dog area with overview of lake for duckwatching, bookreading, dog patting etc. Close to Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura makes for excellent hiking!
