Our home is a single fronted single story terrace house typical of this neighbourhood. Two large bedrooms with plenty of storage space, an ensuite and a small study run off a single hallway which then opens up into an open planned kitchen, dining and living area. The dining and living area is awash with beautiful light which creates a tranquil atmosphere conducive to reading and relaxing. A second bathroom sits within this rear portion of the house. There is a small paved backyard with a raised undercover portion that is perfect for BBQs, two standalone vegetable gardens in old apple crates, and a curry and apple tree which provide some nice greenery. There is a small outdoor room for storing various items and our washer and dryer.
We love our home because of the quiet, dark bedrooms and relaxing atmosphere of our open planned living and dining area. The open plan living and dining area is excellent for having people over for a nice dinner. Our kitchen has ample space to create many gourmet delights. We enjoy reading in our lounge room, watching films on our living room wall via a projector, and playing our piano in the first bedroom.
Our street is a prime cycle route of the inner north and therefore has little car traffic.
Our home is in a premier suburb of Melbourne's inner North. We are close to all of the best of Melbourne; cafés and coffee roasters, restaurants, pubs and bars, bicycle paths, parks, gardens, Merri Creek and the Yarra River. We are close to many popular inner North high streets and suburbs including Lygon St, Sydney Rd, High St in Northcote. Public transport is excellent with a quick tram ride into the city or outer suburbs which offer excellent varieties of food, for example High St in Preston, Sydney Rd, and Lygon St North.
In addition to exchanging homes we would like to have you enjoy all that Melbourne has to offer. We have a huge amount of knowledge of the area that we are happy to share with whoever comes to our home. In particular, we can share with you our favourite restaurants, local and laid back or higher end gourmet, cafés, bars and pubs, with excellent craft beer and spirits, and other local food and arts scenes.
We have two bicycles that you would be free to use. We sit right on the Capital City Trail which circumnavigates the inner city (approximately 2.5 hours ride) and which connects with the Yarra, Merri Creek and other bike trails.
We have a visitors parking permit that will be available to use. However, we are also open to organising a car swap.
