Description of the home
My home is a circa 1920s sandstone fronted Villa with modern extension at the back comprising kitchen (with dishwasher, electric oven and gas cooktop, plus lots of kitchen appliances including espresso machine, pizza oven, sandwich toaster, etc) and breakfast bar area, main bathroom and small laundry. There is also a modern second smaller bathroom (which at the moment will be exclusively yours to use but may be shared if I get 2 housemates). There is ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling throughout, and gas hot water. I have had solar power installed to keep electricity bills low. The lounge room has a gas fireplace, and the home is serviced by unlimited NBN.
The house is technically 3 bedroom but at present I am using the third bedroom for storage and a second lounge/study. I may in future consider turning it into a functioning third bedroom and get a second border (then there will be 3 people sharing the 2 bathrooms).
I have a large backyard with alfresco area and lawned area, and a number of fruit trees. There is also a veggie patch which I am presently doing up, garage (used as a storage shed) and single car carport. There is space for 1 other car on the property, and space for 2 additional cars on street directly out the front.
I have a very lovely medium sized dog and also dog sit from time to time.
The house is located approx 5 minutes walk from 2 major bus stops and is then a short direct ride into the city or North Adelaide, 5-10 mins walk from the train stop and is very near all the essentials including supermarkets, chemists, Prospect Road including the new cinema and restaurants/cafes and Kilburn shops which includes Aldi and Costco.

Bills and expenses
The price per week is calculated to include electricity, gas, water, unlimited NBN, Netflix, and Costco membership which entitles card holders to cheap petrol (petrol station is about 5 mins from my house) plus normal groceries available for purchase from Costco (cost of bills may need to be revised in future if you like to take really long showers or run the heater/cooler a lot). Also happy for you to use things like olive oil, salt, pepper, etc as it there is little point in having doubles.

My name is Nina and I am 33 years of age.
I work full-time in a professional role Monday to Friday and also attend various out of hours commitments.
Outside of my work and other commitments, I enjoy spending time with my dog (including visiting the dog park nearby), reading, watching TV/movies, listening to music and podcasts (true crime podcasts are my favourite), cooking, gardening, going to the gym, Latin dancing...
I am a non-smoker and social drinker. I am vegetarian but do not expect my housemate to be vegetarian, only that you be respectful regarding my dietary choice and ensure you clean up appropriately.
I am not a neat freak but I enjoy having a clean house, and would like a housemate of similar mind.
I like company but also appreciate my own time. Accordingly, my ideal housemate would be up for sharing a meal, watching a movie and sharing a bottle of wine from time to time, but be equally happy to do their own thing. If you are from another country and speak a language other than English, it will be a bonus if you can teach me some of your language (as I enjoy learning new languages and about new cultures)!
Respect is also a must for me.
He is outside while I am away from the home but comes inside when I am home. He is very friendly.
I also dog sit from time to time, and my mother's very small dog often visits when my mother visits (my mother comes over on some weekends to help me tend to the garden).
