Charming, comfortable one bedroom flat in Brunswick West, on bluestone lane overlooking park. Two minutes walk to cafés, shops, 55 tram (to Royal Park, Zoo, Vic Market, City, St Kilda Rd). Short bus/ bike ride to Sydney Rd, music venues, Ceres environmental park.
The flat is a comfortable one bedroom flat in a small apartment block overlooking a park. It's a 60s style block so it has solid walls and is quiet but it's only a short walk to the local shops, cafés and tram.
It has a good sized living room overlooking the park, a bedroom with built in cupboards and a generous bathroom en suite (I've kept the colourful 60s decor but installed modern bath, toilet and washing machine!)
The kitchen is compact but functional and bright. Please note this is an energy efficient flat (has its own solar panels) and the fridge is small. The stove and water heating are gas.
There is a sofa bed in the lounge room so up to four guests can be accommodated but the bathroom comes off the bedroom so the guests need to be good friends at least!
Because the kitchen is small and a bit "older style" (no microwave or dishwasher) I've kept the rent low. I think it's a bargain and I hope guests will too, because it's a really nice flat in a great location.
The flat has its own entry (there are six steps up) and porch, where you can sit and enjoy the view. You will have your own key. There's a communal garden space and you are welcome to pick a few herbs for your cooking.
There is a washing machine in the flat and a communal open air space with washing lines at the back (it's enclosed - entry with a key which you will have). You can also put a portable clothes line on the porch and there's a laundromat nearby if you prefer.
Interaction with guests
I can be contacted any time via phone or email and will always respond as quickly as possible.
Other things to note
Sydney Rd, which is a 15 minute walk or five minutes by car/bus/ bike from my flat, is a great multicultural food and shopping area, and also has several well-known live music pubs. In March each year it has the Sydney Rd festival and Brunswick Music festival.
This is a quiet residential block so please respect the neighbours and keep noise down.
