Charming 3 Bedroom Home in Melbourne's North - Easy Access to Universities and Surrounded by Parkland... City living doesn't get much better than this!

Our gorgeous three-bedroom home in Melbourne's northern suburb of Coburg has so much to offer, nestled in a lovely little cul-de-sac in the quiet Newlands neighbourhood, with great access to all amenities and universities. It is around the corner from Melbourne's beautiful Merri Creek, which offers wonderful parkland, the Coburg Lake, several playgrounds, and a bike path leading directly into the CBD, which is also great for a morning jog. It's just a 7 minute walk to the No. 1 tram, which takes you right into the CBD, directly to the University of Melbourne or RMIT University, and all the way to South Melbourne Beach. La Trobe University is also close by, about 15mins by car. There are great shopping and eating-out options nearby, including the Preston Market, as well as kindergartens, schools and child care.

Our 1945 weatherboard home is charming, with three light-filled bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with eating area, and a cosy living room with a piano and high-efficiency wood heater. The bathroom has a shower and bath combination, and the toilet is separate, next to the small walk-through laundry. There is 6-star, zoned central heating throughout (which will help reduce your heating costs).

Outside boasts an Australian natives front garden and several cosy niches to enjoy the sun in, including two decking areas for relaxing and entertaining. There are three vegie patches if you enjoy gardening, and an abundance of fruit trees (apples, apricots, plums, apricots, figs, mulberries, oranges, limes), berries and native shrubs. There are two washing lines, one of them under cover.

Bedroom layout:
Bedroom 1 - Queen size bed with build-in-robes
Bedroom 2 - Bunk bed plus double sofa-bed.
Bedroom 3 - Single bed. This room is also ideal as a study.

Either a furnished or non-furnished rental is possible.

Feel free to request more photos or any further information you may require.
