A modern light-filled 2 bedroom (+ study) townhouse in the quiet leafy suburb of Kensington: close to Melbourne CBD, the University of Melbourne, RMIT University and Parkville's hospital / medical / research precinct (ie. Royal Melbourne, Children's, Women's, and Dental Hospitals, Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute etc), also Western and Sunshine hospitals.

Spanning 2 levels, the main bedroom comes with a queen bed and access to the balcony overlooking the "stock route" walking/bike path. The second bedroom has single bed + trundle bed underneath, perfect for two children. Both rooms have large built-in wardrobes, and views over the quiet, safe and leafy ''stock route''.

Our house is fully-furnished, and an absolute delight to live in!

Kensington is a stunning suburb that you'll fall in love with: Melbourne's best-kept secret! Surrounded by parks and open spaces, and laced with tranquil walking / bike paths, Kensington is a safe suburb and is great for young couples and families. Our townhouse provides easy access to several childrens' playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, footy ovals as well as a public swimming pool/gym: all within an easy 10min walk. In addition, the lush Maribyrnong River (perfect for walking, jogging, and cycling) is only five minutes' walk away.

Kensington Primary School is less than a kilometre's walk from our place, via the ''stock route'' bike / walking path.

Our townhouse is only a 7 minutes' stroll to shops, a supermarket, great cafes, pubs and restaurants, as well as public transport; tram, buses and several train stations (Newmarket, Kensington or South Kensington stations). We are only 15 mins outside of the city via public transport or 20 mins by bike.

Kensington is a tranquil pocket of green, within easy reach of the city, RMIT University, University of Melbourne, Victoria University (Footscray), the Parkville hospital precinct (the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Royal Women's Hospital and Royal Children's Hospital), and their associated research institutes (E.g. WEHI), plus both Western and Sunshine hospitals.

Owned lovingly by a doctor and an advertising professional, this house is pet-friendly (dog door to ground-floor courtyard included!). It is calling out for clean, responsible tenants who appreciate the finer things in life, whilst nestled among peaceful elm trees.

Available from February 1st 2021, for a one year lease: ideal timing for any medical professionals working in any of the Parkville hospitals!

About Me
I'm a doctor, training to become an obstetrician/gynaecologist. My partner (who works in advertising) and I live in a gorgeous townhouse in leafy Kensington, only 15 minutes' bike ride from Melbourne University, the Royal Women's, Royal Children's and Royal Melbourne Hospitals. Kensington is a lovely, quiet, green suburb, only 20 minutes bike ride from the city around the Maribyrnong River. It has a vibrant cafe culture, and plenty of open green spaces. We're pursuing our careers overseas during 2016 - 2017, and would love some like-minded people to enjoy our house while we're gone!

Alison and Kevin's litlle town house was just perfect, it exactly suited our needs! It is beautifully furnished and well-equipped. We've been provided with almost everything. Alison and Kevin are awesome house owners - they are very relaxed and uncomplicated. The location of the house is great - close to shops, public transport and the Maribyrnong river which is a perfect area for leasure activities. The city centre is not far and and the hospitals are within 35-minute walking distance (or 15 minutes by bike). We highly recommend this little townhouse and all that comes with it!
