Downer, Canberra

Unfurnished room in a share house

We enjoy (in no particular order) AFL, picking (and eating) figs from our fig tree, Dancing, Fleetwood Mac, and The OCI. The house is filled with an easy going bunch who also often like to host the odd house BBQ or catch up down at the local pub. The 5th member of the house is Borris, whom is an amazing and extremely loveable dog.

Downer, Canberra

Unfurnished room in a share house

One unfurnished room with built in wardrobe in a 3 bedroom share house. This is a neat and recently renovated small house. The location is great, only 350m from a bus stop with routes going to Civic, ANU, and Belconnen, close to a bike path, and across the road from Woolworths supermarket, Asian restaurants, bars and cafes, banks, pharmacies, fast food outlets and a post office. The people you'll be sharing with are quiet but friendly people who don't mind a chat but respect privacy. One is a 28 year old male studying engineering full time, the other is a 28 year old female (attempting) to complete a PhD. You will be sharing a bathroom (separate toilet) with the male. We're looking for someone quiet but friendly and who knows how to share-house (will clean up after themselves and will keep communal areas clean). Unfortunately, due to the lease requirements this is a non-smoking and non-pet friendly house (although the neighbour's cat sometimes sleeps on our patio furniture😊)

Unfurnished room in a share house

My housemates and I call this house the 'Ski Lodge'. We have furnished the living room in such a way that it looks and feels like you can return from a long day on the slopes and kick your feet up with a hot cup of mulled cider. Truth be told, its the rustic fire place that does most of the work in cultivating that vibe. Features that makes the ski lodge awesome: - Close proximity to city (5 minute drive) and ANU (5 minute drive). - 10 minute walk to Dickson shops. - 5 minute walk to Ainslie shops. - Fully furnished house (with the exception of the room available). - Living room (described above - also has a column heater). - Big backyard that requires little maintenance.. We tried to grow some veggies a couple months ago but failed horribly. - Driveway to park your car. Ps. The room is a double bed sized room with a fitted wardrobe
