Dickson, Canberra

980 m from Downer

Room in a share house

I own and live in a 4 bedroom 1 bathroom home in Dickson. It's a neat little house on a big block with a lovely backyard and deck. It’s located in a quiet street that is bordered by the Dickson playing fields and the wetlands. The house has ducted gas heating and evaporative cooling. I'm looking to rent out just one of my 3 spare rooms, at about $200 p.w. Internet is included in that, but other bills would be split. (The photos of the house are from back when I bought it in 2014. Apologies, haven't got around to taking new photos. The bedroom for rent is similar to the one shown but does not have its own door to the outside).

Room in a share house

This furnished (or unfurnished) room could suit a student, young professional or working holiday maker who is looking for a quiet place with lots of privacy in a convenient location!

The house is set amongst large mature trees and is very quiet, with views of Mount Majura and across the road from a small park. Just a short walk to the bus stop for number 2 bus for Dickson and Civic. The ACU (Australian Catholic University) is less than a 5 minute walk away. ANU and UC are both 8km away. Close to Hackett shops and Mount Majura. With a European housemate you could brush up on your French/Italian language or cuisine skills! Or plan some travel adventures!

Our home is across the road from Mt Ainslie nature reserve. Short walk to local shops, quick cycle or reasonable walk to the city and close access to buses.

The house is large and more than comfortably accommodates all of us. Noemi is in her last year of an anthropology PhD, Valeria just started highschool, Kylie just moved here from Darwin and is also doing studies in Anthropology, and Amie works in community arts and is involved in a number of other comm'ty based projects.

Room with ensuite in a flatshare

The master bedroom is the room on offer, it's quite large with his and hers wardrobe above head storage and has its own ensuite. You'll also have access to secure underground parking! The house comes fully furnished, this includes a 70 inch 3D TV with surround sound for movie nights (winning) pretty flexible on furnishings and the layout of the house. If you've got an outdoor setting and a BBQ you're a winner in my books. Close to the hustle and bustle of the city and about a 5-10 minute walk to lonsedale street if you require some of the best coffee Canberra has to offer. Rent is $270 for single or $360 for couples a week payed to the realestate agency calendar monthly. (Would prefer a couple as saving money to go overseas) Must clean up after yourself and be open to the idea of a cleaning roster. Don't worry I'm not a nazi. All applications must be approved by the realestate prior to moving in. Look forward to hearing from everyone.

There is also central air-con/heating/fan throughout the apartment and a built in laundry/dryer area. There is a tailor/dry cleaning service and pre-prepared meals caterer downstairs which is handy for professionals.

Just a 15 minute walk to Civic, even less to get to Lonsdale Street! You will have your own bedroom (unfurnished with built-in wardrobe) and bathroom. The rest of the apartment is furnished but I'm quite flexible if you have some of your own furniture. Balcony looks out onto Black Mountain, and the building has a gym and indoor heated pool. Bills are low because the building is modern (built 2012/13) and well-insulated. The apartment is equipped with NBN fibre to the home, will just need to sign up to a plan. I also have Foxtel, so keen to share that if you can share your Netflix account! Water bills are paid for by the landlord, you just have to pay gas and electricity (I currently split this 50/50).
