Other information
The king sized master bedroom includes two double BIRs with brilliant adjustable shelving and above-wardrobe storage, with space for a desk as well. The bedroom is carpeted throughout and freshly painted.

Blockout blinds and light filter blinds give you complete privacy and total darkness for those who like to sleep in - or open the blinds to let in the golden morning sun and look out over the Japanese maple and rambling rose in the tiny front garden (also a good spot for a quiet morning coffee in the sunshine).

The fully tiled en suite includes a spacious shower with excellent water pressure, rainforest shower head, six-drawer single-cupboard vanity, and instant hot water.

Parking permit for on-street parking available through Council at own cost.

About the occupants
Justine and Mitch (mid forties) are married and have the main upstairs bedroom. Mitch lives week on/week off in Ballarat while Justine is based in Albert Park. We live a nine to five lifestyle with mostly quiet nights during the week and a bit of minor silliness (a bottle or two of wine) on weekends.

We love to cook, eat and feed people.

Matt (24) has temporarily returned to the nest and has the third bedroom (also upstairs). He hits the gym most days, loves a sleep-in, and keeps later hours than the rest of us but doesn’t disturb the household. He spends a fair bit of time at his girlfriend's and his mates' houses.

We live a pretty chilled lifestyle, sharing meals with whoever happens to be home, and are happy to socialise together or separately.

Mitch and Justine like hikes, camping, scuba and travel, as well as spending time with their extended family. We all communicate openly and respectfully so we have a happy and relaxed home where everyone is comfortable.

We like our shared spaces neat and clean!
Compatible people
You need to love dogs, live happily with introverts and ambiverts, and be a direct communicator. A nine to five lifestyle would suit the household best, though shift work is fine if you're used to coming and going quietly.

We’re a kind, polite, drug-free, drama-free, inclusive, friendly household looking for a housemate who's the same.
Description of pets
Mitch's dog Ted travels with him, so we have a dog every second week. Ted is a well-meaning, hilariously klutzy blue heeler who will love you to death (and steal your food) given half the chance, but he also has a sound grasp of the words "No!" and "Outside!"

He's an integral part of the family and very much loved. He'll probably love you a lot as well, so if you don't love him back you might not be happy here.
