The space
The decore is black and white with a splash of red, and kinda minamalist. What I like most about my home is my pleasant neighbours, the bustling life outside my door (cafe, bars, open air market, live music and every consievable cuisine). There are also swimming pools, bike tracks, cinema, galleries, Collinwood childrens farm, Northcote shops, theatre. It is also very excessible to the City by tram and train. Traffic and parking is the pits; which is why I cycle most places.

Coffee machine

Other things to note
I don't smoke and hope you'll respect this. If you must, there is a communal garden right outside.

Also, the neigbours are very nice and I'd appreciate if you keep noise low in corridor. The apartment is actually very quiet. You can turn the music up without too much bother.

Location

Preston, Victoria, Australia

South Preston was a area for footware and clothing industries, with a mix of public and private houses. In the past generation retail, hospitality, hairdressers, and music, art and cultural business have replaced the old industries - Along with apartment complexes supplemented houses.

A reputation for being a rougher locality still prevails - but it never really was. The area includes older persons, young families, international students, and recent settlers from all parts of the Globe. In the same street as my place is a Greek Orthodox church that use to be a Methodist church. A few minutes away is a Catholic church, Baptist Church and Melbounes largest Mosque, and a Synagogue and almost any other faith within a few suburbs.

There are an estimated 70 different languages spoken in Melbourne northern suburbs. On the streets around my home you'll see pretty girls bicicletas, bohemian dress, women in hijab, men wearing scarfs and jackets in winter or sandles and shorts in summer.

You can find any sporting code; soccer, rugby, Australian rules football, cricket, baseball, and with Basketball and Netball Melbourne most popular sporting pursuit.

With suburban trains, tranvía, buses and lots of cars that are heading everywhere and none.

Welcome to South Preston!

Me; I'm in my late 50s, with children grown up. I love travelling with my partner Louise and have found AirBnB a great way to see things we might not otherwise, eg, live in the midst of the old city of Valencia, Spain.
