About the property

** Room available now, but willing to wait for the right person.
Hi All :) I have a fully furnished room with a comfortable near new double bed, aircon, ceiling fan, and a secure undercover car park available in my apartment for one person only (No couples please), who is a non smoker, employed and doesn't have pets. You would also have your own large bathroom (but it is also the laundry, so I only need to use it for that) and a small balcony off the bedroom. I'm looking for a considerate, responsible, trustworthy, quiet, but friendly housemate who isn't going to be having guests coming and going on a regular basis. Occasional is ok. Open to both short term and longer term arrangements. Looking for someone who doesn’t need to work from home on the same days I do, and doesn’t have furniture or a lot of belongings with them, as my entire apartment is fully furnished. If potentially interested after reading my ad, please send me a message telling me a bit about yourself and what you’re looking for in a living situation, and how long for etc.

You would be sharing the apartment with one other person - myself, a 38 year old full-time professionally employed female. I live a quiet life at home, and tend to keep to myself and give my flat mate their space, but I am friendly and do like to have a chat as well. Advertised rent amount includes ALL household bills (wifi high speed internet, electricity and water), as well as a fortnightly cleaner. Apartment is located in the heart of Nundah, 5 min walk to Nundah Train station and bus stops, shops, bars, and cafes. 15 min to Brisbane Airports and Brisbane City. I’ve been living alone for the last few months by choice, but now looking to share my home again with the right person as I'm hoping to travel later in the year **

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR

Non Smoker, friendly but quiet, respectful, and trustworthy flatmate who is considerate of others.

Someone who does not need to work from home on the same days that I work from home (Mondays, Tuesdays and the occasional Friday) due to the confidentiality required in my job, and my desk and computer is located in the common area in a study nook. Unfortunately the only day that is flexible is a Friday, as I'm locked in to Monday's and Tuesdays from home. On the days I don't work from home I'm working in my office in the city. As an FYI, there is no room for a desk in the available bedroom, but I would have no issues with you working in the dining area on the other days I'm not working from home if you like to work from home sometimes.

Someone who is a non partier and does not tend to entertain regularly, sees home as a quiet, safe, clean and relaxing space, who doesn't have regular guests coming and going all the time.

Someone who has respect for privacy, is employed and reliable with rent, clean and hygienic, and will do their fair share of general household chores. Basically living by the motto “if you make a mess, clean it up”.

Someone who is a responsible adult, is independent and lives their own life, but still be friendly and not be a stranger within the home. I do like a chat and I do like the opportunity to share a meal and/or drinks together from time to time with a flatmate if they are open to that. If they don't want to ever share a meal or drinks, that's fine too.

I do cook and eat meat, so someone whose diet wont be offended by that.

A nice, easy, drama free living arrangement where we show mutual respect towards each other and all of my belongings that you have access to are treated well.

I'm totally ok if you have a friend or two over occasionally, and I will too, but I would always let you know first, and would expect the same in return.

The only storage available is within the main wardrobe of the available bedroom, there is no extra storage space available in the apartment. The wardrobe is large however and fits a lot. You will have shelves in the pantry and fridge, but no other extra storage is available.

ABOUT ME

I'm a 38 year old straight, single by choice, professionally employed female. I have a lot of experience with housesharing over the years and am a very friendly, respectful, trustworthy person to live with. I’ve had both good and bad experiences over the years of sharing and know what I’m looking for in a flatmate which is the reason for the war and peace ad. I do tend to keep to myself, but do like to have a chat as well. I appreciate boundaries, space and privacy and am very considerate of others. I work a full time career Monday to Friday and also a weekend job as I usually love to travel overseas each year - but obviously at the moment I can't.

I have a very busy work and social life and am not home that often. When I am home I just tend to chill watching TV, or I'm in my room. I have a large group of friends and a very close family who I also regularly socialise with away from home. I am friendly and always happy to have a chat, but sometimes I just want to crash in my room after a long day at work as both my jobs are very mentally draining.

ABOUT THE APARTMENT

The apartment is in an excellent location in the heart of Nundah Village and walking distance to cafe's, pubs, Woolworths, shops and public transport. 5 min walk to Nundah train station, 5-10 min walk to Toombul Shopping Centre, Bus Interchange, and great new restaurants. 15 min to the city and 15 min to the airport. The bedroom available has a comfortable near brand new double bed as well as a matching bedside table. It also has a small white display/bookshelf. There is a large wardrobe with a chest of drawers inside it and shelving. The furniture in the room will not be removed, and there is no room for any other furniture in the main apartment. However, in the available bedroom, there is room for a small bookshelf and/ or TV cabinet and TV in the bedroom if you wanted to add that. It is a double sized bedroom, so not a large room, but it does have a small balcony, large wardrobe, fan and air conditioning. The room has plenty of natural light, and nice breezes in summer.

You really don't need to bring anything other than your clothes, your own linen for the bedroom and bathroom and buying your own food. I have all the modern kitchen appliances etc, and don't mind sharing everything. I can supply fresh linen if needed though as I have plenty.

FINANCIALS

Bond is 2 weeks rent paid before you move in. Rent needs to be paid to me by bank transfer on a weekly or fortnightly basis once you move in.

I'm not looking for anyone to be on a lease with me. It will continue to stay in my name only, but I will arrange for you to be an approved tenant with the real estate agency so it will all be legit, but I'll be the only person on the lease. I'll let you know when inspections are and I'll be the one dealing with the agency. Bond is paid to me as the RTA won't accept extra bond when the full bond has already been paid on the lease as it has been paid by me. The only time I have not returned someone's bond to them is because they damaged some of my belongings and they needed to be replaced and they gave me no notice when leaving, otherwise I always return it. I also do up a signed rental agreement between the both of us.

About the flatmates

You will be sharing with myself only. My preference is for someone in their late 20's or older, but willing to consider younger if we are on the same page in how we like to live. You need to be a non smoker, employed, independent, clean, a non partier at home, don't have regular guests over and have maturity and respect for others. I have lived with a variety of flat mates over the years.

If you have any questions, or would like to arrange a time to see the room and meet me, and have a chat, please feel free to message me on here.

I am a very friendly and easy going person, but I just like to be very clear in what I'm looking for in a living situation. As I mentioned, I am open to short term and longer term living arrangements and can be completely flexible... It's all about the right person for me. I'm not in any rush and willing to wait for the right person.
