Beautiful 2 bedroom house in quiet tree-lined street, close to trams, trains, supermarket, cafes, restaurants

Hi there!

Our home is in a great location on a quiet street in Coburg, just on the border of Brunswick. We're 2 minutes walk from trams which will take you right into the city, 10 minutes from trains which will take you further afield, and easy walking distance from the cafes, bars, shops, restaurants and live music on Lygon St and Sydney Road. There's also a supermarket just round the corner.

The house has two large bedrooms, with built in robes, heating, air conditioning, and plenty of light. One has a queen sized bed and a lovely desk. The other is currently set up as a kid's room, but can easily be re-arranged if you'd prefer. We've got a comfortable sofabed that would work well for visitors or a kid who's outgrown the cot.

The large living room in the middle of the house has a TV, excellent sound system, heating and air conditioning. Then the open plan kitchen and dining area with heating, air conditioning and all mod cons opens out onto a deck with a proper aussie bbq, and our lovely garden.

Coburg is a great suburb. Quiet enough to be relaxing, great for kids (there's a lovely park and playground at the end of the street), but also really close to all the food, drink and nightlife Melbourne is so famous for. Melbourne university is about 20 minutes by bike (you can borrow ours) or by tram. The city is about 30 minutes. And all the other major university are also easily accessible either by tram or train (the station is only 10 minutes walk away).

We are a couple with an 18 month old son, who are heading to the US for my sabbatical. Ideally, we'd love to find someone who can stay for the whole period we're away (August to December 2017), but shorter stays are also negotiable. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions.

About Me
I am an academic at Melbourne Law School, but will be spending my sabbatical in Cambridge with my partner and our son, who will be about 18 months when we arrive. We're hoping to find a place with either 2 or 3 bedrooms from mid August 2017 to the end of December / start of January. Please feel free to get in touch with any questions at all re our visit.
