Downer, Canberra

Furnished room in a share house

A furnished room in Downer only 200 meters from Dickson shops. A short stagger from the restaurants, bars and Woolworths etc. Perfect location if you don’t own a car (regular buses strait to the city/ANU). Great for students. The rest of the house is fully furnished with a full kitchen to cook any cuisine (I use to own restaurants), a mass of cook books, Coffee machine, 2 fridges and a chest freezer, an abundance of cooking appliances and gizmos. The house has been recently renovated. Usually run a good vegi patch in summer but the possums seem to get too hungry in winter so have given up on that. There is a proper outdoor fire place to chill out around on occasion if you feel like it as well and a BBQ. Definitely No dogs allowed but a cat could be ok.

Unfurnished 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, - 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 - 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 3 rooms available ranging from $130-140 a week, - If there's another arrangement you'd like us to consider, don't be shy, ask about it. - There are seasonal bills (for electricity and gas) and an on going weekly internet bill (approx. 10$ 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.

Ainslie, Canberra

1.26 km from Downer

Furnished room in a share house

We are looking for a happy, friendly housemate to share our home. About the room: Sunny, north facing room with a huge built-in wardrobe. It can come either furnished, or unfurnished. We have a wrought iron queen bed frame, a big wooden chest of drawers, and an antique wooden desk and chair we can offer. The mattress is really comfortable. About the house: It is a cosy and sunny house, with off-street parking, three bedrooms, a bathroom (both a bath and a shower), separate toilet, reverse cycle air-con, dishwasher, and bathroom heat lamps. There is also a big backyard with lots of fruit trees, a big organic veggie garden, a garage and bike shed, as well as a large front garden. About the area: Mount Ainslie is behind our house and you can walk up it via a ridge that also runs along in front of the house, with lots of pretty birds and kangaroos. We are in between Dickson and Ainslie shops (a 5 min ride either direction, or you can take the bus), and there’s a bus that goes to the city/ANU directly opposite our house. Otherwise, the bike path is just a few metres from our house, is a pretty ride through the wetlands and takes about 10-15 minutes to get to Civic. The suburb has nice wide streets and is a relaxing haven from the city, while also feeling very close to everything.

Unfurnished room in a flatshare

I just moved here and I'm still setting it up and learning its quirks and the benefits of living in this part of town. It is easy to get anywhere in town from here. There are a few shopping areas in walking distance to pick from. Buses stop a few houses away if you need that. It has evidently been well looked after and has new carpet, a gas stove, plenty of hot water and the temperature stays comfortable even with no heater on all but the coldest nights. Which room you'd have is up for negotiating and it would be based on need as they are different sizes with different amounts of storage.

Unfurnished room in a flatshare

The apartment in De Burgh street is in a nice, secure complex with easy access to public transport (a Red Rapid stop 5 minutes walk away), bike paths, and is within easy walking distance of the city centre (roughly 30 mins walk). It has small courtyards at the front and rear of the apartment (ground floor) with high bush fences for privacy, and plenty of parking on the street if you have a car (potential to use underground visitor parking). The hot water is great, there is aircon/heating in the living room, and it will be fully furnished (except for the bedroom and lounge-room). So if you have lounge room furniture and kitchen utilities (blender, jaffle-maker, I already have a toaster) you can bring that would be fantastic! Good stove-top and well-functioning oven (electricity not gas). Both bedrooms are almost exactly the same but mirror images of each other. The available room has a sliding door on to the rear courtyard and has floor to ceiling built-in wardrobes. The room is a decent size and should be able to fit a queen bed and a small desk. The bathroom is shared, a good size and is located between the two bedrooms (the front bedroom shares a wall with the european-style laundry and the separate toilet, while the rear bedroom shares a wall with the bathroom. The bathroom has a bath with a shower over the top and glass doors (no need to worry about shower curtains!). The weekly cost of $195pw doesn't include utilities, but these are usually not too bad (as there are no gas or water bills). The only bills are electricity and internet. Internet is split evenly, so $30 per month each.

Easy going housemates share this light-filled 5 bedroom home in Ainslie. The house stays cool during summer and features all the mod-cons you'd expect: washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, 5-burner range, even a wine fridge. During the cooler months, you can enjoy our wood burner fireplace or our backyard fire pit. The room is well air-conditioned and heated (both central) and comes unfurnished. Best of all? The location! The house is a 2-minute walk to Ainslie shops, 5 minutes to the wilderness of Mt Ainslie Reserve and, if you enjoy a tipple, you're just an $8 Uber from Lonsdale Street. I've lived here for about a year and a half and will be very sad to farewell it. Send me a message if you'd like to know more about the house! It's available from late June, long-term renters preferable.
