Home Description

Description of the home

Most important this is a place to call home, to provide a sanctuary and a sense of belonging. Drama-free!!!! Beautiful California bungalow art deco free-standing house with a homely and +ve vibe. Fabulous outdoor/indoor area with couch for reading, resto, relaxo. Huge backyard garden, would suit a green thumb or anyone who wants to grow their own organic veggies.

There is air-conditioning in the main living room, though the house and main bedroom stays cool in summer. Fireplace for winter, cozy. A fabulous stereo in the main living area. The home has character and charm, it has lead many lives and would have some tales to tell.

The main and largest bedroom is what is on offer, there is a smaller room which Voila is in (moving out 20-Feb) and than there is my room (sunroom at back of the house (due to career change). I've been here for 10 years, at times I have lived on my own in the house, however I prefer to space to be enjoyed, I believe co-living is good from a sustainability perspective. For a few years I did Air bnb, had about 50+ guest from all over the world, we had good times and reviews were always positive. Often beautiful friendships were created.

Super close to transport options, 3x trams for going to the city/Chapel (order of closeness tram #5,64,6) - takes 10min to get to Chapel St, another tram for going into the heart of St Kilda (#16). Train station options 'Armadale' (8min walk), 'Malvern' (12min walk). Bus 605 to Flagstaff.

Local shops - 8-10min walk to Malvern Central.

About the occupants
My name is Sophia (call me Soph), I'm Aussie first born with a mixture of european influences, Georgian, French and Ukrainian. Have a side kick saving humanity by supporting artist with strategies to make them sustainable and financially viable. For my day job I've taken a career change from banking project management to pursue work in the Education sector as a business manager.

Mon-Fri I'm out the door 7:15am, during the week I'm generally out events, talks, gigs etc. I'm happy to let you know whats going down if you feel the urge to join in. My interests includes art/music (obviously), sustainability, ethics and mental wealth. Mon and Fri night if at home I like to play PBS Community Radio. On the weekend, I can be out or chilling at home listening to music and cooking some type of meal, I'm happy to share meals, good times and stories.

It's a arty type house, chilled and quiet at night (rarely in front of the tv). Not into Netflix, more into SBSondemand, ABC iview and Gaia, not a party house (unless we're party together). I live as eco-friendly as possible, freak out about with too much packaging or chemical based toxic stuff. Moved into mostly consuming unprocessed food, fresh organic fruit and veg, this makes me mostly vegetarian, has the added benefit of minimal packaging. Have the motto, don't panic, its organic.

Would be sharing with one other flatmate Viola up until 20-Feb.
Compatible people
Hopefully we can move beyond just pleasantries or talking about the weather. My preference is to have some form of connection and care for the humans we share space with, sometime to share a laugh, life views and philosophy, perhaps a cocktail or meal on occassion. Also acknowledge that time-out is good for the soul. Luckily the home is big enough that timeout can happen all over the home and you don't need to be confine to your room.
Be yourself, speak your truth always, respect others perspective, clean up after yourself. Values that would work well include being optimistic about the future, seeing good in life, people and diversity, avoid passing judgment and taking life or yourself too seriously. ENJOY time now and in harmony!
