Lovely, modern apartment available in boutique block just moment away from all the amenities of Racecourse Road, Flemington and a short walk from Kensington's main strip. This apartment is on the ground floor of the triple storey building. It has a balcony, decent sized kitchen and living area. Bedrooms are big enough for a double bed and have built in robes. The room for rent is 2.8m by 3.1m and has a small window - has just had carpets steam cleaned and ready for someone to move in. Split system air con and heating included. The apartment is fully furnished except the room available to rent (not the furniture in the photos as I move into the place in January - will be just as nice only a bit more colourful!). Appliances including a dishwasher are included. A parking permit can be arranged to be able to park right out the front for $30. Let me know if you need this. The street is half permit parking and half not but timed. Not that you'll need your car: - Trams to highpoint and the city right around the corner. - Walk to Newmarket station in 2 minutes (10 minutes to the CBD or 2 stops to lovely Moonee Ponds) - Walk to Flemington Bridge station to get to Brunswick in 2 stops - Catch the nearby bus to Melbourne University or Lygon Street Can walk to Maribyrnong River or Princes Park; or lie around in the sun at one of the nearby pocket parks. If you have a bike you can store it in the underground car park. The location is just south of Racecourse Road. I'm not sure why on the map below it shows the property as being to the north. The boring stuff... Bills: The only bill to split equally will be electricity. Water and internet is included. Bond: Four weeks of rent as a bond Deposit: First week rent as a non refundable deposit to secure the apartment for my peace of mind that you won't change your mind the day before move in date. Notice: Four weeks notice required if you decide to vacate. Pets: Considered but only a super quiet dog that is suited to apartment life and house trained - like a bulldog or greyhound etc.

Hi potential housemates. We have a room for rent that is available end of November. The room is large and light filled with built in robe. The house is a gorgeous old double brick victorian which has been recently renovated. Inside the house lives myself (Lizzie- 30), my partner Marty (33) and our very friendly 5 year old pup Tilly. Lizzie is a teacher (Early Childhood) and Marty a floor and wall tiler running his own business. We are both busy people that love to relax when we're home (not a party house). We also have a granny flat at the back of the property with two tenants in there (early twenties). The flat is self-contained with its own access and the house will only be shared between the 3 of us. We are perfectly located for students or anyone working in the city. We are just metres from Kensington high street and Kensington train station. The journey to the city on train is 7 mins (only two stops and plenty of trains so not much waiting time). There is also a bus that goes directly to Melbourne Uni, Parkville and Carlton, and a tram for North Melbourne. Kensington is a beautiful leafy suburb with a great mix of families and students. There are great food options close by (both in Kensington and Flemington which is a short walk away) as well as pubs, cafes and bars. Parks and cycleways are aplenty. MUST love dogs, be clean, tidy and respectful! Sorry but only looking for one person, or possibly short term couples. Hope to hear from you if you think our house may suit! :) On street parking with pass. Edit: Please note Marty's brother is staying with us temporarily and sleeping in our study. Brad is 29, a professional dancer/barre instructor and is rarely home! This is a temporary arrangement whilst he sets himself up in Melbourne.
