Home Description

Description of the home

I am a mature age student studying Creative Writing and English at UniSA. I live in a first floor apartment in Tennyson facing West Lakes with a 10 minute walk to Tennyson Beach. I am on the top floor, so there are no apartments above. If you like the quiet and want to wind down after a hard day's work then this is the perfect place for you. It is only a five minute drive to West Lakes Shopping Centre and Aldi. Transport is ok but not fantastic so a car is an asset and there is an under-cover garage for your car if you need. I have an additional carpark.

The apartment has evaporative cooling and a split-system air-conditioning in the lounge / dining area. The apartment includes all furniture, furnishings and kitchen items, bath towels, bedding, etc. so you only need bring yourself and a great attitude. Happy to cook for two on occasion, as I am a great cook and enjoy the company. Open plan kitchen/dining/living - Modern, neat and full of light. Bathroom has bath, shower and toilet. Bedroom has generous size wardrobe, desk, chair and bookshelf.

About the occupants
I own the apartment. I'm studying Creative Writing and English at UniSA and Modern Greek at Flinders University part time. That equates to about 10 hours contact time and at least another 10 hours of studying in my own time, which I often will do on campus during the daytime. At night I like to chill, read and watch netflix. I like the quiet and my daily walk gives me my solace. I am easy to get along with but won't gel with really loud or fiery people who like to party. Another thing is that although I do smoke at present outside on the balcony, I am quitting, so a non-smoker would be preferable.
Compatible people
I am a calm, mature aged person and can discuss, negotiate and listen to anything you have to say so if there is anything you want to ask, then please feel free to be candid and ask me. I am looking for the same level of maturity and honesty in a flatmate.
