Other information
Offering Bedroom 3 on middle level with shared bathroom / toilet.
Refer to floor plan and photo for details of room. It's the smaller room, but with generous storage cupboards and nice outlook over the park.
Allison (Renewable Energy, the homeowner, from Melbourne) has the master + ensuite, Adrian (Melbourne, sports journalist) in bedroom 2 and Diego (Italian, architect) in the top floor bedroom. We are easy going but respectful working professionals who have our independent friendship groups but enjoy a friendly chat. The room has north facing daylight, views over the park and shared access to a bathroom on the middle floor with Adrian and Diego. The house has other storage space for bikes, sports gear etc.

The house feels spacious with secondary break out areas and outdoor spaces. Housemates would have social, balanced lives and are in and out often, but also relaxed days to watch tv, cook and have a friendly chat in the kitchen and living area.

In May we adopted two 6 and 9 month old, short haired domestic kittens who are a combination of affectionate / independent / playful (see pictured).

About the occupants
Hi, I'm Allison. I work in the city. I have a busy life between family, friends, exercise, weekends away but also like to lounge about, watch tv and relax at home. Part of moving back into my home and looking for housemates was the opportunity to get a dog or a cat as I sometimes travel for work.
