About the property

**Unfurnished room**

The property is in a quiet part of Hawthorn, but conveniently located near all the essentials. Just a few minutes walk from Burwood Rd, Swan St, and Power St, it is easy to jump on one of the various #75 and #70 tram stops to venture into the city and eastern suburbs. If trams aren’t to your liking, Hawthorn Station is just 4-5 minutes away and there is parking on site. There are plenty of great cafes nearby, a couple of bars, grocery store, and just down the road from Glenferrie Road shopping precinct. Despite being the inner suburbs, as you get to know all the local faces this area will begin to feel more like a friendly small town.

If the outdoors is your thing but you like to live close to the city, this is the place for you! As you step off the property, you will be greeted by the lovely Morang Road Reserve. There are beautiful gardens, birds, and plenty of room for walks, picnics, exercise, yoga, etc. The area is located near Fairview Park, Burnley Park and Gardens, and St James Park. The Yarra River and its associated walking and bike paths are just a couple of minutes away. The river hosts a surprising diversity of plants and wildlife, where you can often sight water dragons, woodland birds, and fruit bats. The running track follows the river through to Richmond and up to Abbotsford.

The apartment is quite simple and cosy with plenty of natural light. It is on the north-east side of the building, so we get the morning sun on the balcony but escape the afternoon heat. For most of the summer the apartment was cool, and only during a few heatwaves did the air conditioning need to be used. The neighbours are super friendly, and I have yet to be disturbed by noise. The living area is quite roomy. We have space to accommodate a couch and collapsible 4-seater dining table which gives enough space to do an indoor workout etc. The kitchen is on the smaller side, but I have had no issues with space for cooking.

The available room is the main bedroom, well lit, plenty of desk and floor space, fits a queen size+ bed and has a large built-in wardrobe.

About the flatmates

Hello future housemates! I'm Steve, a late 30's ex-ecology & sustainability student, currently working in water quality testing. I spend my spare time cooking, climbing, swimming, walking around parks, and making the most of local cafes. I love to explore and experience new places and food.

I am super friendly, approachable, and LBGT+ friendly. I like to be sociable and supportive of my housemates, but I am also respectful and appreciative of privacy and personal space - when time permits I like to chat with my partner who is studying in overseas.

You can definitely put me in the 'lives to cook' category. Making people happy with food brings me joy, so happy to do shared meals from time to time!
