Comfortable and bright family home with large garden in the Inner North

Bright and airy family home for rent, ideal for a family with primary school or secondary school aged kids. The house has two bedrooms, one queen sized and a kids' room with bunks (three single beds), both with double-glazed windows. It also has a small store-room/study (no windows, due an idiosyncratic renovation many years ago), and a bathroom with bath and washing machine. The open-plan kitchen/dining room is fully equipped, large and light, opening onto the garden with french windows on one side, and the living room on the other.

This house is ideal for a family visiting Melbourne for around 3 months (April-July 2020): it has everything you need (we have 3 primary school aged kids). The bedroom has custom-built bunk beds and storage. The house is full of kids’ books, toys, games and boxes of Lego. Sheets and towels will be left for use.

The house has a large garden with slide, climbing trees, established fruit trees (you won't need to buy lemons or limes while you are here!), BBQs (both gas and woodfire) and outdoor dining tables. In a highly urban area like this, our sunny garden feels like a green oasis.

There are excellent public schools (two primary schools and a high school) within 10-20 minutes walk. There are also multiple parks at similar distances.

On street parking only, but there is no need for a car. The house is steps from the train station (15-20 mins to the city) and tram-line down Sydney road (30 mins to the city, 20 mins to University of Melbourne and hospitals). The Upfield bike path is less than 50m away, with a 20 minute bike ride to the University of Melbourne and hospitals. Excellent shops at less than a 5 minute walk (supermarket, fruit and veg market, local butchers etc), many cafes and a diverse array of restaurants. There are also multiple car-share cars within a 5 minute walk (GoGet, Flexicar and Car Next Door, which is literally next door). We love living in this area – it has everything at hand.

About Me
I am an Associate Professor at Deakin University. My research area is conservation science and applied ecology. I was a postdoc in the US (Princeton), UK (Imperial College London) and Australia (University of Melbourne) before getting a tenured position at Deakin. I live in Melbourne with my husband and three children (two of whom were born in the UK while I was a postdoc). We will be on sabbatical from January to July 2020 in Taiwan, giving our kids the opportunity to learn a new language and culture. Our house is a family home, VERY kid friendly, with a large garden.
