About the room
Who lives there
1 male, professional, non smokers
Share with male owner of the house in early fifties.
House is neatly divided into 2 living areas, with the 2 sets of bedrooms at opposite ends of the house. Tenant(s) will have use of a huge fully furnished lounge room almost to themselves (or even solely to themselves if preferred, as the doors between the living areas are lockable with your own padlock, and I don't mind in the least if you choose to do so), complete with 50 inch plasma screen TV and DVD recorder. Foxtel is available (there are 2 separate Foxtel boxes in the living areas, which can be tuned independently to each other). The spare room I have available comes off the lounge room, and is a very large bedroom with ensuite. This room is currently furnished (awaiting your own bedroom furniture) but does have a double built-in wardrobe, and the rest of the house is fully furnished.
I have a very large back yard, with a patio/pergola area just outside the lounge room. The pergola is covered in with vines (keeping the house cool in the summer) and a I have a good range of garden furniture on the patio. My yard is well endowed with foliage generally, which makes for a very relaxed atmosphere, especially in the warmer months.
The rest of the house consists of a furnished family room, kitchen, dining room, laundry and the 2 bedrooms and bathroom at the other end of the house to the spare room. I use one of these bedrooms (and the accompanying bathroom) and the other is used as a computer room. My computer with broadband access and wi-fi will be available for your use, as will the bathroom whenever you choose to have a bath.
Both sides of my double garage will also be available for your (I will leave my 17 year old car outside, as I have always done so). Even with 2 cars in there there is plenty of other storage space if required.
I am a full-time professional by day, and at home I place a great emphasis on getting the socialising / privacy balance right. You will mostly find me with a beer (or Bundy on a nice day) and watching or listening to sport or music. I figure that what’s the point of living with people if you don’t have anything to do with them? At the same time I am not in people’s pockets all the time: I respect other people’s need for privacy, and sometimes need it myself (after all, who doesn’t?) Having 2 distinct living areas makes both the social and the privacy aspects very easy in my house.
I am definitely not a neat freak, but it goes without saying that I expect respect for both myself and my house. Other than this I am just after the usual traits of reliability and friendly and easy going nature that make for successful share-housing (and I have had plenty of these in my time – 16 years of share-housing in total).
$225 per week plus utilities (usually about $50 per week)
2 weeks rent (i.e. $450)
I am open to cooking/cleaning arrangements (I have had several different arrangements during my share housing times)
Cats are welcome (I love cats and they would love my backyard) as are well-behaved dogs.
Smoking is fine as long as it is done in a considerate manner.
Please contact me if interested. If possible please tell me a bit about yourself so I can shortlist potential tenants before inspection. Rooms are available to move into in about a week's notice.
Look forward to hearing from you – you’re going to love living here!
