About the property

A room is coming up in our communal long-standing sharehouse in Kurilpa, Highgate Hill! The bedroom is for one person only and we have a preference for women, queer men, trans and non-binary people, aged 25 and over, and with previous share house experience. The room is available July 1.
The house is a big, beautiful old Queenslander. It has lots of communal spaces, so you can always find a spot to yourself. It has a lot of old house character & is honestly in a bit of a state of disrepair. But the kitchen is new, which makes up for it. We have a rambling edible garden and 5 chickens.
This is a quiet home - we care about each other, check in & have chats. But we give each other lots of space to relax & book in if we want to have bigger chats or all get together. We have an agreement to practice covid safety, we can talk to you about the details.

Rent, internet & bills is $375.35 per fortnight for each housemate.
Bond is $500.
We share most food through contributing $50 per week into the kitty. We try to source food that is whole/organic/local.
Living up to our suburb name, we’re located on a hill across a lovely big park. It is super close to the river and the neighbourhood is very walkable and friendly. We are a 2 minute walk to 198 and 192, 15 minute walk to the 199 bus/CityCat, 10 minute walk to 196, and a 10-15 minute cycle into the city.
The form asks you:
- a bit about yourself
- why do you want to live here
- your thoughts/experience on share housing/communal living
- if you’re down with creating a queer/trans/sex-worker friendly house
You can also email us with any questions. If this is not accessible to you please let us know. If you need to use messenger please message Karen
Look forward to hearing from you.
Please feel free to share with anyone.
We are ready to take applications now. Then likely interview in early June. The room is available 1 July.
