Description of the home
One of our roomies is moving out due to the current COVID climate. This means our cosy Abbotsford home is looking for a lovely third housemate! The location is amazing, we are just down the street from the Abbotsford Convent, Yarra River, plenty of green spaces and some top notch coffee.
Our house is a gorgeous double-bricked semi-detached home with hardwood floors in the bedrooms and living room, and tiling in the kitchen and bathroom. There are high ceilings and ducted heating in every room so it’s a dream to live in and double-bricked means it stays relatively cool in summer. The kitchen is huge, we have a separate bathroom and toilet and a big, light-filled (& plant-filled!) living room. We also have a big courtyard with a shed. We are very house proud and like to keep it neat and tidy (and are looking for someone who enjoys living in a clean and pretty space). We have most of the furniture already set up but can look to make space to accommodate things if needed.

Maddie (30) has been living in the house for a few years. She is a teacher who loves cooking, indoor plants, art, hikes, travel, yoga and a good cup of tea. She is a busy gal, and in normal times is often out and about enjoying all the great eats and river walks in the area, but is also partial to a night in on the couch just hanging out.
Lauren (29), normally active, often out and about with a busy schedule at work (working full time as a Doctor) but also enjoys spending a night in with a movie and a housemate dinner. Loves music, going to gigs and going to brunch.
Our current lockdown hobbies include lounge room yoga sessions, movie nights, river walks and sourcing the best local coffee/take away dinner/cinnamon scroll in our 5km bubble 😊
