Home Description

Description of the home

Beautiful, light-filled home in the best location in Melbourne. Comprised of two large bedrooms, one spare room, a study, and open-plan kitchen, living and dining (see floor plan). Features countless house plants and a large outdoor entertaining area. In a quiet, secure part of Abbotsford with plenty of parking.

Close to the Yarra river and Abbotsford Convent, as well as two supermarkets, heaps of cafes and Victoria/Johnson/Smith St bars and restaurants. Easy access to public transport including bus (200m), train (550m) and tram (900m).

Sadly our housemate Axel's visa has expired so he's heading back to Sweden. The room is unfurnished but he does have an essentially brand new queen-size Koala mattress, which you can buy off him if you'd like. The house is fully furnished so would prefer not to add any new furniture.

About the occupants
You'll be living with a couple - Dave and Jolie. Dave is 37yo, runs a swim school and makes furniture. Jolie is 28yo, and works full time as a doctor in a neonatal intensive care. We like to have pretty quiet weekdays but fun on the weekends.
Compatible people
We're looking for some pretty relaxed, who ideally works full time but who also wants to contribute to a home - including house dinners, boggle and chats over wine. We like the shared spaces to be kept pretty neat and have a good relationship with our landlord which we're keen on maintaining.
