About the property

Large master bedroom w/ city views, ensuite, air conditioning, built in wardrobe and ceiling fan..

🌲 🌲 🌲 Welcome to the Palace 🌲 🌲 🌲 Because calling it a house doesn't do it justice.

There are things about shared houses that I love, I'm hoping you do too. New friends, easy chats, house-wine-night, impromptu brewery trips (Fonzie Abbot is 500m away...🤣🤣🤣), flexible and no-stress living with likeminded folks. Such is the power of community (that is, when it's done right).

Doing it right means a few things. Here is how we've tried to incorporate these things into our current favourite abode:

✅Enough room to swing several cats
-Each and every bedroom in our house is large enough to fit a small sofa/separate seating area (whether it be on a private balcony (of which there are 3), or in the room itself.
-Because the bedrooms are ridiculously generous, our WFH kids can enjoy their workspace (without working from bed), our busy worker bees have somewhere to stretch their wings (after a hard days honeying) or if you just need to bingewatch some terrible TV - nobody ever needs to know.
- Whilst I’m always the biggest cheerleader for warm and fuzzy sharehouse vibes, let’s not pretend that a big enough space and quite time to ourselves isn’t vitally important
- There are 5-6 separate living/dining/hanging-out spaces in our place (excluding bedrooms of course), my favourite is the outdoor lounge and firepit under the backyard tree with a book and an IPA
- The idea is that we can all find our own little quiet space, or be social butterflies as needed. Though being a social and friendly is encouraged, we all like some occasional chill-time, and nobody likes to feel like they are living in anyone's pockets.

✅Good bones - the Palace is a modern, very-fit-for-purpose 3 storey, deceptively large home. It's features include:
- Massive lounge room - Very perfect if you've just had a long day and need quiet space to unwind.
- Open plan kitchen, 6 burner stovetop, caesarstone benchtop. For the foodies among us!
- Outdoor 5 seater lounge and firepit in the garden, best place for lurking and drinking tea while avoiding uni assignments/other terribly boring responsibilities.
- Large private patio and additional shared balcony
- ceiling fans across all levels, fully ducted aircon, the house is also North-south oriented, no more sweating through horrid Brisbane summers at our place!

✅😎The right crew

- The aim is for queer friendly, drama-free and friendly professionals/students generally between 23 and 33 (with a little wiggle room on age for the right folk)
-The type of vibe being cultivated is about bonding over a genuine appreciation of good chats, outdoorsy stuff (think rock-climbing or hiking), cooking fancy stuff, binge-watching-HBO and drinking fancy beer :)
- It's an deliberately friendly and respectful space, with an openness to sharing a dinner, a fancy ale, a bike ride, or a park-frisbee session every once in a while.
-Keeping things tidy is important to us, we're v reasonable and sane about it, but do firmly believe in the importance of not having to clean up someone else's mess 🧹🧹

✅Nice private space
- Master room available on upstairs with ensuite, large private balcony, aircon, ceiling fan and built-in wardrobe
- There is very decent sound proofing between upper and lower floors
-brand-new room darkening curtains
-There is a possibility for a furnished room (if this is what you need, be sure to include details when you send a message)

✅Always enough fridge space and bathrooms
- Our fridges are brank-spanking-new - all housies have at least 120L each of fridge space each, very great news as the fancy organic Albion markets is just around the corner.
- Our house has 4 modern bathrooms, including two with a bath. They're nice ones too!

✅Location, Location etc
- We're in Albion. If you don't know the area, it's nice. The place is close to pretty much everything. It's 5 minutes to The Valley / Bowen Hills / Hamilton, 10 minutes to The City, Nundah, Clayfield or Chermside. Lots of local coffee shops, Greek, Vietnamese food, great grocers and fancy dining.

✅A place to park the petrol-monster
Inner city parking can be notorious for parking issues. Luckily, our place is all good on that front. The Palace has 2 off street parking spots (we're currently working out how these will be allocated - when you come visit, let me know what your preference is). For onstreet parking, we don't have any problems parking within 600m of the house as there are some v reliable (and close-by) parking streets that I'll tell you about once we're friends 😂😂

✅Simple bills
- Internet, electric, gas, and water are shared and tally to $25 fixed price per week.
- Unlimited NBN internet

✅Fun house things to do:
- There's a cracking wood fire out back which makes for pretty tasty marshmallows and beers with friends.

✨✨✨ Hot tip: Donate a boardgame to our blossoming loungeroom games stash, and enjoy a $10 rent reduction for the first 4 weeks...add a plant to the (ever-growing) living room jungle and we will have no choice but to love you forever.

About the flatmates

The aim is for drama-free and friendly professionals and students between 23 and 30. We like to hike, rock-climb, chat, read widely, binge-watch-HBO and drink fancy beer :)

It's key that the household is friendly and respectful of each other’s space- although we do like to share a dinner together every now and again.

If this sounds like you, drop us a line.
