Self-contained Backyard Studio

This studio is in our back garden, surrounded by trees, flowering vines and lawn space. It overlooks its own, small patio area with seating, and the garden beyond. The garden is a shared space with the main house where we live.

The studio is comfortably furnished with a double bed, tv, desk, wardrobe etc. It is also very light, with overhead windows catching the northern sun, and double doors onto the private patio and shared garden. A floor to ceiling window looks out onto another aspect of the garden. There is a reverse-cycle air-conditioner to provide heating in winter and cooling in summer. Also, a ceiling fan.

The small kitchen is equipped with a single induction cooktop, microwave, toaster, electric slow-cooker, rice-cooker and electric kettle. The cupboards are filled with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans.

The studio also has it's own shower, toilet and vanity unit. A washing machine is located in an area outside the main house and you can use this at any time.

Access to the studio is via a path at the side of the main house. The garden is a shared space but the studio is entirely private, and has its own small patio with table and chairs. This space is screened from view from the main house.

The property is really well located to public transport ...... just a very short walk to trams, trains and buses which will get you to Melbourne University, Latrobe University, Australian Catholic University, RMIT etc. We are also very close to the Merri Creek bicycle trail.

Northcote itself is a vibrant, happening suburb with a fantastic music scene in High Street, and many great restaurants and cafes. We are a short walk away from High Street but our street is quiet and leafy.

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.
