Super stylish two bedroom apartment in the heart of East Brunswick and close to Melbourne University and RMIT

Super stylish two bedroom apartment in the heart of East Brunswick and close to Melbourne University and RMIT.

The space
Our beautiful home has been freshly painted and recently renovated and features designer appliances, new floorboards and exquisite bespoke wooden joinery. The expansive, kitchen/living space leads to a huge private terrace with a lovely garden, outdoor seating and BBQ. The view is hard to beat - on a clear day you can see all the way to the Dandenong Ranges. The east-facing terrace is bathed in beautiful morning sunlight and wraps around to the main bedroom, past the passionfruit vines, bright red geraniums and pots of colour.

The main bedroom has a queen-size bed, built-in robes and new carpet. The second bedroom also faces the terrace, with a second built-in robe, a double bed (foldout sofa), bookcases and a desk. It is bathed in beautiful northern light all day, making it a perfect place for studying/writing.

We'd advise this is a home best suited to a single or couple - though it does have a sofa bed if visitors need somewhere to stay. The second bedroom could also be a child's bedroom if you don't need a study.

The Euro laundry is in the entry hall, leading to the bright, fresh bathroom, complete with a bath, shower and heated lights.

We hope you are happy to water our plants - the inside plants are very happy with all the light and air they get - and don’t take much to keep alive! The outdoor garden is a riot of colour and growth in spring, with a herb patch, citrus trees and an olive tree. There’s a hose on the terrace for hassle-free watering.

The property has a high speed Wifi network and the wall mounted Samsung Frame TV gives you access to Netflix, Google Play etc and best of all can be disguised as a piece of art with the press of a button.

Local area
Located on the second floor of a building with 23 apartments, secure access and undercover parking, this extremely convenient apartment is in the heart of bustling East Brunswick, but its location at the back of the block creates a tranquil, quiet setting. Cafes and bars abound along Lygon Street (Melbourne’s ‘Little Italy’) through to Carlton and it’s a hop, skip and a jump from Sydney Road - the longest shopping strip in the southern hemisphere - and just 15 minutes by tram from Melbourne’s CBD. Enjoy eclectic retail, modern fusions of multicultural foods and a host of local designers and galleries. There is an organic grocer one block away and a local supermarket is just a 3-minute walk from the apartment. You are also welcome to use our bicycles to explore the neighbourhood - we are close to bike paths!). We love our neighbourhood - we think it’s the best in Melbourne!

The number 6 and 1 trams stop right outside the front door and travel straight into the city, via Melbourne University. The Number 96 tram is two blocks away on Nicholson St and heads all the way to St Kilda Beach, via the city.

There are also local buses a 1 minute walk away on Blyth St and it’s a 5 minute walk to Sydney Road for travel options that take you through Coburg to the north and Parkville and the city to the south.

About Me
Hello, my name is Meg and I am a freelance writer specialising in human rights and diversity. My partner Susan is also a freelance writer, with a focus on design, architecture and engineering. We live in Melbourne, Australia, and have travelled extensively around the world for work and leisure – fortunately our professions give us the luxury of combining work with travel. In 2020, we are planning 4 months in Europe and will base ourselves for 2-3 months in Spain. We visited Granada in 2018 and fell in love with its charm and way of life, especially the excellent food, bars and culture. We are looking for a home in a quiet neighbourhood with reliable Wifi and space to work at home if needed. We are very clean and tidy and will treat your home respectfully - a bonus might be that we love gardening and are very good at keeping plants alive and happy! We also rent our home in Melbourne on this site while we are away.
