Other information
Hi! 🤓. The bedroom is large, bright, with a large full length mirrored robe with HEAPS of storage. The room is big enough to fit a good sized desk as well. The windows are double-glazed and there is a ceiling fan. The windows look onto a quite street, views of the city.

Home Description

Description of the home

This is a share HOME… close to everything. A two bedroom terrace house in a quiet, green nook.

ACE LOCATION:
Walking distance to Smith St, the Abbotsford Convent and a block from Collingwood train station. Trams and buses within a couple of blocks too. Within a 5 minute walk is the river, multiple parks, supermarkets, restaurants and pubs with real fires! And of course most of Melbourne’ queer venues…

COMFY HOME
This is a warm, inviting, place with a real lounge separate from the kitchen/dining room. There’s lots of morning sun, and a gas heater to keep the place cosey in winter. And a BBQ in the courtyard for summer, with home grown veggies and flowers. The place is furnished outside of the the bedroom.
I try to lower enviro-impacts by growing veggies, having a worm farm, recycling well, paying for Green Power, etc.

WELCOMING
While there’s enough room to have some ‘space’, this is a hospitable place with a bit of a tradition of hosting the odd barbie, getting folk around for Eurovision, and the occasional dinner. It also has to feel like home and a place to recharge for me and whoever lives here - so it is all about getting that balance right.

About the occupants
Hi. I’ve worked hard to build a homey vibe, and to strike the balance between this place being hospitable and a sanctuary. Generally I work office hours. I have a life, so usually out a few nights a week. I like to be creative, cook, garden, and love my festivals and camping trips.
Compatible people
It’s all about the right fit – You’ll know if its right for you! (think Tales of the City, but fewer people)

Someone who:
- really values home and actively contributes to the space
- gives a crap about greener living
- is active socially, hospitable, and not always home
- doesn’t need reminding to pay bills or clean

This place isn’t for you if you are just looking for a 'room’ or just passing through Melbourne. Its also not a good fit for couples, students or those on a different time-table.

If this place does sounds like you - ping me a msg. We can line up a phone chat and feel out a visit from there. :-)
Description of pets
2 pusses that are pretty easy to like...Trish is older with attitude (think Meryl Streep). Bruce is everything she's not...
