About the property

It's a modern 2-bedroom apartment on the penthouse level of a new building in the Hobart CBD, designed with a 9-star rating (for low energy bills) and great views.

The cost of power is already included in the rent.

There's also NBN fibre to the premises for great Internet; Netflix access. The apartment has a large private terrace/balcony that's north facing and has lines of sight across the city, to the water and also the hills.

It's a very short walk to the state library, Woolworths supermarket, Myer, pubs and clubs, the Hanging Garden, and anything else you'd need to live day to day or in the the central city. To the north the hospital is a short walk. To the east it's not far from the water and Salamanca.

The Commons building is its own community; and apartment 602 shares facilities and features such as:

1) on the rooftop, shared garden space and a veggie patch, shared laundry, clothes dryers; clotheslines; a multipurpose room for yoga or social events on the rooftop, all free to use.

2) in the basement there are shared e-cars and an area for bicycles. If you need to know anything about the details please send me a msg.

The available bedroom is in a very private area of the building. To the north it faces the sun, and to the west it faces a light well.

No tobacco smokers (non-negotiable). A preference is for no pets. No couples. Flatmates need to be tidy (it surely goes without saying...) I'd prefer someone aged within a range from 25 to 45 yrs, but that's not 100% essential for the right person. If you're LGBTQ or straight it doesn't matter either way, there's no preference.

Sharing a meal sometimes is a good thing to do, so that's a preference. People who look after themselves and keep in shape are also on the preference list; but it's not a long list. Positive people are an advantage - everywhere, not just sharing an apartment :)

If you have a vehicle you'll need to find separate private parking nearby. This isn't available on site but there are options within walking distance across the city.

* Footnote: The available bedroom has space for a Queen size bed, but there's currently no bed there. The bedroom has built-in robes and shelves but there's no furniture in the actual bedroom at present. The apartment is a quiet place and space, not a party venue.

About the flatmates

I'm a tertiary educated professional. I love life. I enjoy being social as well as reading and being creative on my own. Most of my friends in Hobart are in their 20s, 30s and 40s but some are older as well. I've lived in Hobart for 8 yrs. I started here by managing a large project for MONA.

Before saying anything else, I'll describe the place: It has modern clean lines, hydronic heating, light-filled spaces, a large private terrace, and also a communal rooftop garden area. As a bonus, for everyone in the building there are shared electric-cars and bike spaces. The people in each floor of the building are generally pretty quiet and polite. Most are professional people. Many work in the health or government sectors.

There's 1 room available. $300 per week (including power) + Internet NBN costs that are separate. (Power use should be low due to the building's efficiency.) The penthouse has 2 bedrooms in total so there will simply be two occupants. It's very close to the RHH and UTAS buildings. Every Sunday on the street below there's a farmer's market with local produce. This is a CBD apartment. Between my work I can show it to you: if you meet the criteria listed and you give me some prior notice (generally at least more than 8 hrs).

More about me: I'm into literature, architecture, business models, creative projects, travelling, kayaking, the wild, and a good chat with insights from others. I also perform stand-up comedy around Hobart and other places. (It's hard to describe unless you see it.) I swim and go to the gym to keep in shape. I'd describe myself as mainly quiet; but I can also hold a conversation for hrs, and I have a thirst for knowledge. I enjoy sharing a meal and Netflix, board games, cards, and going to some of the many live events on offer around Hobart.

I'll fine tune and update this profile about myself by the end of July. Hopefully this snapshot is a good enough start.

I'd prefer someone who was looking for a quiet space.
