Home Description

Description of the home

Fantastic house in the 'Golden Triangle' right on the border of Erskinville, Redfern and Alexandria. The house has a classic feel with modern and open plan in the living/kitchen area. When you enter the house it's a standard terrace layout with the three bedrooms coming off the hallway, yours will be the middle bedroom. When you come to the end of the hall there is a separated living room with dresser and two couches with side tables. Behind the couch there is a very full bookshelf and then our dining area and bar, kitchen (with dishwasher) and washing machine and a small courtyard with dryer.. The bathroom is in it's own alcove opposite the kitchen and feels like your walking into an old sauna with a clawfoot bath. There is plenty of storage space in the attic.

Other features are wireless internet, gas hot water that never seems to run out and good shower pressure, a dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer which we need to fix or replace.

It's a 5-10 minute walk to Erskinville Village and everything on offer there and there is a large Woolworths complex not too far away in Alexandria. It's a 15 minute walk to Redfern Station. There a quite a few parks about and it's reasonably easy to ride a bike around these parts as it's not very hilly. King Street is about 15-20 minutes by foot.

There will be three people living in the house including you.
There isn't much space for extra furniture but if you have some nice pieces of course we would be happy to discuss options.

About the occupants
Courtney is an easy going and sociable New Zealander. She works in the wine industry and is easily excited by wine but won't judge you if you know nothing about it. In fact she'll just try and get you as excited as she is about it. Our house is always full of delicious wine because of Courtney. She also likes walks along the beach or clifftop somewhere and Netflix on Sundays. She used to be a pro skier but can't do that in Sydney but she manages to stay pretty active and healthy.

Luke moved to Sydney from Melbourne about a year ago. He's an actor and so sometimes has unconventional hours but that means he also sometimes has free time to finesse his red curry he makes everyone for dinner or if he's really bored he might try and coerce you to eat raw garlic because its really good for you. When not acting Luke also works in the wine industry which means yes, more wine. He's out a lot going to the theatre, cinema or some other art event, likes cooking and stays reasonably fit and healthy.

Please note: Yes there is lot's of wine in our house but we are not alcoholics and definitely have a few nights off a week. We don't really party during the week.
Compatible people
We enjoy spending time with each other most week nights if we aren't out and about. We don't really live in our bedrooms and like to have a laugh in the lounge and play some good tunes. We are clean and respectful of shared spaces but also respect each others privacy.
