Light-filled, comfortable home in Northcote.

Our home is in a great location in Northcote, close to the Fitzroy boundary, Merri Creek, Brunswick Street shopping strip and lots of cycling trails.

The house has two lounge rooms and two bedrooms. A third bedroom in the house is used for our own storage. In the back garden there is a self-contained studio, light-filled and comfortable as a separate dwelling. During the time of your stay there will be a tenant (quiet, respectful) in the studio. The studio is accessed by path at the side of the house and is screened from the house with a privacy screen).

Both bedrooms in the main house are at the front of the house. The larger bedroom has a queen-sized bed, built in wardrobe, chest of drawers and a table which can double as a desk. The other bedroom has a double bed, built in wardrobes and chest of drawers. Good quality sheets are provided for both beds.

The smaller loungeroom has a good quality piano as well as a collection of sheet music which you are welcome to use.

The large loungeroom at the back of the house is open plan, and overlooks the garden. It is adjacent to the kitchen which is bright and fully stocked with everything you could need.

The house is clean and comfortable with loads of natural light and a northerly, sunny aspect over the garden, great for the winter sun which streams into the back of the house. In summer the grapevine over the pergola provides shade and a pleasant area to sit.

There is an air-conditioner at the back of the house for cooling in the hotter months. Central heating ducts are in every room for heating in the colder months.

We are located in Northcote, just a minute's walk from the tram and a 5 minute walk to the train. Melbourne University is a 10 minute drive away, or, if you prefer to ride, we can supply a bike or two. It will take about 15 minutes on quiet roads. The CBD can be reached by bike in 20-25 minutes.

Northcote is a fantastic suburb and we are close to the action while being tucked away in a quiet street. High Street is a short walk away. There, you will find good restaurants and a lively music scene. We are also really close to parks, bike trails and public transport. We have easy access to two train lines, 2 tram lines and buses which will get you just about anywhere.

This is our home, and our garden. We have raised a family here. It is clean and comfortable but has its share of eccentricities, bumps and scratches. Its not perfect but we love it.

We stayed in Janet and Franks home for 1 year from July 2014 until July 2015. From the start and throughout our stay Janet was extremely helpful and efficient in all aspects of organising our stay in her delightful home.

The house is excellently located with great transport routes into the centre of Melbourne which is only 20 minutes away. I was working at the Royal Childrens hospital in Parkville and this is an easy 25 minute door to door cycle along designated off road cycle paths. The house itself is an extremely comfortable home with a beautiful little garden. As a family of 4 with two young boys, the house more than met our needs and we all thoroughly enjoyed making it our home for the year. Northcote is a fantastic suburb with lots of interesting shops and great restaurants along it main High street. I would definitely recommend this home to anybody wanting to spend some time in Melbourne.
