Home Description

Description of the home

Albion. House is extremely spacious and extremely good value.

Queer, alternative and kink-friendly house in inner Brisbane.

Albion. $150 per week, includes bills. Yes, we know this is amazingly good rent. We were just really, really lucky to get this place when it was available. We're good tenants and keep it clean, so the landlord is very easy to get along with. What's the catch? There kind of isn't one.

All up, the house is a sort of gigantic old Queenslander. Three current housemates and we're looking for only 1 more person (or perhaps a couple). You'd be getting two good-sized rooms to yourself. Your rooms would be towards the back of the house.

House has:
2 bathrooms
2 toilets
2 living rooms
Butler's pantry
Grassy front and back yards
Courtyard
Lots of under-house storage
Even has 2 fireplaces!

The train station is a 3-minute walk away, we're also close to cafes, supermarket and all that stuff.

Prefer female housemate to keep the gender balance, but getting the right fit is more important. Ages 23-45. You must be employed or studying. Our house is not suitable if you are looking after children.

Also, we have a resident cat named Ralf - he is sweet, friendly and very chilled.
