Great inner-north location close to Watson/Dickson shops, EPIC showgrounds, ACU and natural surrounds with a 10-15min drive to the CBD. Quiet, leafy cul-de-sac makes for plentiful street parking, and high speed, unlimited VDSL is great for streaming and gaming. Very inexpensive for a modest room, would be ideal for a student or someone working and looking to save. Animal friendly environment, the house has two lovely cats and the neighbours have generous egg-laying chickens. Spacious back yard is also great for activities and entertaining.

Watson, Canberra

1.65 km from Downer

Room in a share house

Our house is sunny and spacious, there's room for everyone for almost everything! The bedroom is pretty big with a nice build-in wardrobe. There's a big window which provides enough sunlight all year round. We also have a nice big living room, where there's a big window and a huge tree in front of it. It's nice just to sit in the living room and have a cup of tea while watching the tree. The house it's quite close to the natural reserve, so the environment is exceptionally nice even for Canberra's standard. On the other hand it's also close to the bus stop - about 3 mins, where the bus 39 comes every 30 mins, and every 10 mins or so during rush hours. It's about 15 mins by bus or 5 mins driving to Dickson shops and restaurants. If you walk for 7 mins, there's Watson shops, where there is the groceries and a nice cafe. Also there's more buses around.
