Room in a share house

The Magic Chicken House is looking for some lovely souls to join it! We’re a rollicking house made of musical instruments, feathers, fruit trees, chickens (who live by their own lore hence the house nickname), blue tack and bicycle parts. THE HOUSE: - An open kitchen with dishwasher + all the kitchen furnishing you could dream of including frequent cake baking, apple juicing, Sauerkraut making, preserving, large-scale cook-ups from all different parts of the world (all of us are from different parts of the world and we do enjoy our feasts!), - Separate shower, bathroom and toilet facilities, - Big garage for storage of bicycles and pingpong tables, - That is currently also a workshop for wicked experiments - At least one Catan board at a time, - Flat roof for sunset beer // tea // gin drinking, - Open slate floor dinning area / sitting room / fantastic collection of cookbooks - Did we mention gas central heating? - And the stellar garden? WE'RE LOOKING FOR: - People who are into cheesy dance moves, - Want to live in a house which is as much as house as a community, as "home" - keen to consider communal food sharing arrangements, gardening, composting and eating radishes - have sustainable living practices (you have to love that compost) - eat those veggies (Epic Farmer's Markets is around the corner!) - into organic foods and real food in general (and cooking) - into foraging (Canberra is a great place for that), keen for hunting delicious mushrooms and growing your own food - hopefully going to bring some whacky art/cult/food/other practice into the house and make lots of mess and noise (but actually we're pretty into that, you've just got to not be too adverse to letting us join in), + LGBTQI friendly people, + Generally friendly and accepting, + (do I get to write 'feminists' here? I think I do) Feminists, + also no bigots ♥. FINANCES: - we have 2 medium-sized rooms available $275 a fortnight ; - If there's another arrangement you'd like us to consider, don't be shy, ask about it ; - There are seasonal bills (for electricity and gas) and an on going weekly internet bill (approx. 10$ a month). Get in contact, tell us about you and what makes you tick, and if it seems like there's a fit we'll arrange coffee and house viewing and all that jazz. Also feel free to ask questions. Big love, The Magic Chicken House Hope to hear from you soon.

Room in a share house

The interior is beautiful and bright, the kitchen is shiny and easy to clean, AND we even have hooks for our pans to hang up, which my friend pointed out means we are "real adults." We even have one of those magnetic strip thingies to hold our metal ~cooking utensils.~ The little things I love most about living here: beautiful furniture and artwork, a spacious bathroom that I savor my showers in because it feels like something from Better Homes & Gardens, we have a really nice vacuum & plenty of cleaning supplies, and I do believe an espresso machine has just arrived in our kitchen... Last but not least, we have a spacious backyard with a swingset and tire swing and garden and patio, perfect for afternoon hangs and chats. Also, Ollie! He is my housemate's dog and you'd get to share the space with him too. <3 <3 <3 Oh, and we're a few minutes' walk away from Watson shops (grocery store, the wonderful coffee shop The Knox, and a few restaurants), and relatively close to Dickson shops. And close to the 39 and 200 bus stops to the city. The neighborhood is beautiful too, green and leafy and lots of families and pups. We have off-street parking! Overall, this is one of the loveliest places I've lived, and friends, whenever they visit, always remark at how great the space is. Room can come furnished (double bed + frame, dresser, little table, chair, as pictured) for $100. Side note that my dates are flexible! Let's talk.

Dickson, Canberra

911 m from Downer

Unfurnished room in a share house

The house is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom place - main with ensuite - separate living and dining, decent sized kitchen with modern appliances, paved area out the back door under a pergola and well established gardens (including a mulberry and fig tree and a currently neglected vege patch). There's a double carport available and a shed/garage for bikes, etc. AC in the dining and kitchen, which can also cool the lounge. Both rooms are large enough to fit a queen bed with space all around (no dimensions, sorry I forgot) and have large built-ins, but otherwise unfurnished. The main has a door that opens into the backyard. The shared spaces will be somewhat furnished - couch, dining table, cabinet - and there will be a fridge and washing machine. If you've got your own furniture/appliances, I am happy to shuffle stuff around to make things work. There's also a bit of storage space available for overflow. The garden will need a bit of attention, mostly watering so it doesn't die, mowing and oppressing the weeds. The owner will organise any of the more serious gardening. Ideally, I'd like housemates that that sort of thing appeals to. I am looking for one or two people to join me in this place, whatever works. Rent would be $325 each if you don't want to share with two others. Bills in addition to the rent and split equally. I'll be moving into the place on the weekend of the 26th and won't doing an inspections till after that. If this sounds like a good thing to you, get in touch with a bit about yourself.

Unfurnished room in a share house

Unfortunately I have to go back to Melbourne, so we're looking for someone to take over the lease fro me! We just signed the lease until July 2019, and we have an option to extend. We're looking for someone asap, by February at the latest! This a perfect for someone who wants to live comfortably while figuring out what their next move is! Newly built, and located in the heart of the Dickson shops, and close to Woolworths, you're spoilt for choice. It is also a ten min drive at ANU and Civic, and we're close to buses and the tram (whenever that starts running). Arguably you'll have not only the biggest room in the apartment, the best one (in my opinion). It opens up onto a balcony, and has a built in wardrobe and the most privacy. You'll be sharing a spacious bathroom with one other person. The apartment also features secure parking for yourself as well as a pool, gym, cinema room. The room is unfurnished, and we're still getting furniture for the apartment. So feel free to bring extra furniture with you! If you're interested, we'd love to hear from you.

13 Caldwell Street is a super nice, recently renovated free standing house in Hackett. We like it because it's pretty big, has lots of natural light and is in a quiet street. It also has a good size backyard and nice garden, which for us was a big plus. The communal spaces are big, clean, and modern with a separate living room and dining room. There is a separate toilet and the bathroom has a shower and a bath. It only takes about 15 minutes to ride into the city, and 7 minutes to drive, but there is a bus nearby and plenty of parking. The place is close to some really beautiful bush walks on Mt Ainslie or Mt Majura. Hackett shops is a short walk away, where there is an IGA, bottle shop, and cafe. We have a fair bit of communal furniture (couch, tv, tables, chairs, bbq, etc) but there will be space if you'd like to bring some yourself.

The house is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom brand new townhouse with underground parking, completed in December 2018. As the house is a 10 min bike ride or bus trip from ANU, it is perfect for uni students. The address is also less than a 400m walk to the Dickson terminus once the light rail is up and running. For those who have a car, the house is just a 10 minute drive from Belconnen and Gungahlin, and only five minutes to the city. Coles, Woolworths and IGA are also very close by.

The house is equipped with high quality appliances, such as a Bosch oven, stove top and dishwasher, an LG washing machine, Methven taps and shower heads and a Nespresso coffee machine. You can also stream to your heart's content with unlimited NBN fibre to the home.

Unfurnished room in a share house

Seeking a housemate to share a lovely 3 bedroom home located on a quiet street in North Lyneham, 10 minutes from the City Centre. The home is modern and fully-furnished, but the bedroom comes vacant for you to add your own furniture. Kitchen appliances, dishwasher, diningwares, dining table/chairs, sofas, TV, washing machine, BBQ etc. will be available for you to use. The home is very close to North Lyneham shops and bus stops which frequently service City, Dickson, Woden and Belconnen – buses 1, 30 and 31. The ‘Next Gen’ health club is only a few mins walk down the road – offering gym, pool, tennis and squash courts etc. The bedroom is quite large, measuring 3.7m x 3m so it will easily fit a queen bed with bedside tables. It has a built-in robe with modern mirror doors, providing hanging space as well as compartment storage. The floor plan of the home is great as it has separate living areas and the room for rent is segregated from the main bedroom. The third bedroom is smaller than the room being offered and is currently rented by a 23yr old male. You'll just be sharing a bathroom and a separate toilet down that end of the house. You’ll also get a space to park your car down the side of the house - no need to park on the street. The backyard is nice for summer BBQ’s, with no maintenance required – and it also has a veggie patch if you’d like to use it. Rent is $280 per week, and includes electricity, gas, water, NBN internet and Netflix subscription. Bond will be equivalent to 2 weeks rent and rent payment is fortnightly, payable in advance. However, this is negotiable depending on your circumstances i.e. 4 weeks bond, pay rent monthly. This will be perfect for someone who is working in Canberra from interstate or a young professional who enjoys socialising but is past the binge drinking years. Long-term stay preferred. No couples please. No pets considered as there is already a dog at the residence. Available mid/late Jan 2019.
