150yo Heritage listed Shop / Terrace house in Glebe - close to Usyd & UTS

We love that we are caretakers to a slice of Sydney's architectural history. Glebe is an eclectic, iconic inner city suburb and remains a vibrant, easy and fun place to live. Glebe is surrounded by beautiful green spaces, sparkling bays and innovative playgrounds. The CBD, Chinatown, fish markets, , neighbouring iconic suburbs, classic and and not so classic artistic institutions, artisan everything, eating/drinking extravaganza, incredible shopping and fabulous people watching are just the beginning.

We do not own a car and get around by an extensive and efficient network of trams, trains, buses and ferries. Bondi beach, Cockatoo Island, various 'food safaris', coastal trips, etc are adventures we embark on regularly, with very little effort and fuss, even with 2 children in tow! If you would prefer your own vehicle, the 'Go Get' car sharing company has a permanent car space and car parked directly across the road.

It is an unrenovated gem full of interesting furniture and cute features. You will certainly not need to worry about the odd mark on the wall or mess on the carpet (floorboards throughout). That said, it will be freshly painted. Our home has a 'lived in' feel. The front room features floor to ceiling steel shelving that houses a film and record collection (Brett's business) and a 40 inch TV. There is a home cinema in the middle room that can project onto the wall as well as a cosy gas heater sufficient to warm the entire house. There is a small paved back garden, 2 living spaces. The front room also doubles as an office. There are 2 bedrooms, a laundry, kitchen, and a bathroom with a claw-foot bath. Our house also has plenty of cooking gear, cosy blankets, warm lighting and vintage everything. If this sounds like somewhere that could be your Sydney home we would love to hear from you. We are very happy to answer any questions about the house / area / schools, etc. In addition to this, our house is equipped with all sorts of cool kids stuff including Lego galore, board games and a full bookshelf (our kids are 7 and 10). We could be flexible with a lot of things, including the price and the possibilty of pet sitting our 2 gorgeous guinea pigs, Robert Brown aka Bob and Algernon Moncrief.

About Me
I'm an independent film scholar, collector, antiques dealer. My family and I are traveling overseas for 8 months in 2017 and looking for a tenant for our 2 bedroom heritage listed terrace house in Glebe. Conveniently located to Sydney University (5 min walk) and University of Technology (15 min walk) as well as a bus away from the Uni of NSW.
