Historic 2 bedroom cottage, Newtown. Walkable creative area. Walk to Sydney Uni, UTS, Notre Dame. Great lifestyle and transport at doorstep. 10 mins to city centre by train

Our 2-bedroom, inner-city cottage is a like staying in little slice of history with modern comforts. Walk to Sydney University, RPA, UTS and Notre Dame. Direct bus to University of NSW. With a view of a large beautiful park's only 10 minutes to the city centre. Only a few minutes walk to trains, buses and easy airport access. The cottage is peaceful, but only a few minutes walk from all the action of Newtown and its restaurants, bars, cafes and quirky shops. The modern artwork and artefacts reflect the creative nature of the area.

The cottage is a beautiful heritage-listed building with a split level design. These houses are typical of inner city Sydney and are distinguished through heavy use of cast iron ornaments, on the front and bedroom balcony. You'll be staying in a beautiful piece of history, with all the comforts of modern life! The Australian and international art works displayed will add to your visual delight.

The large master bedroom is full of natural light and features a juliette balcony (wonderful for the fresh air or a cool breeze), a stylish queen-sized bed with quality linen and ample storage. You can lie in bed and watch your favourite show on the bedroom's large-screen TV.

The second bedroom is a quirky colourful room with two single-sized futon beds (one large king single and one normal-single size) with quality linen. One of the futon beds folds into a chair if only one bed is needed.

The kitchen/dining area features a large silver fridge, microwave, toaster, small oven and hotplates, kettle, free tea and coffee facilities and ample glassware, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. There's seating for four at the beautiful antique Chinese dining table. A high-chair is available for infants.

The lounge/living area features a TV, a desk (a handy place for to surf on your laptop, study or work) and a big comfortable sofa. Looking out the lounge room window you'll see a beautiful large park opposite. The park is a great place to exercise or just chill out and features a leafy children's play area.

The property comes with everything you will need (furnished, including linen, cooking equipment, crockery etc). Note also the cottage is split into two separate apartments (both with their own entrance) - I live in one and rent out the other. As yours will not have a washing machine mine is available for use for a small fee per load.

About Me
Friendly and well-meaning. I have worked in academeia and as a travel writer and journalist and have lived and worked in the UK, Europe, US, Asia and Australia. I've travelled more than 120 countries and love meeting people from all over the world. My wide travels also mean I know what makes a good environment in a home away from home - great location, clean, comfort and good value. I've applied all of this to my property.
