Fully Furnished Heritage Home For Rent/share

This large Federation home has been lovingly restored and is situated in the heritage listed suburb of Haberfield. (Historically, Haberfield has been given the name, "The Garden Suburb" as each quarter acre block in the area has both front and back gardens and all streets are tree-lined.) The home, “Arley” dates back to 1914 and has a blend of original, Federation charm with a modern kitchen and a spacious landscaped backyard- perfect for indoor/outdoor entertaining.
The home is just footsteps to beautiful Ashfield Park with its picnic areas, bicycle lanes, sports field, gardens and outdoor workout equipment. A 2 min stroll places you on Parramatta Road with links to city buses. A 10 min walk will take you to Summer Hill Station where trains also run to the city. Haberfield ‘village’ is a 5 min walk with award winning bakeries, pastry shops, cafes and restaurants. (Privately run food tours can often be spotted exploring these iconic shops). We are only 10km from the CBD, 6 km to Sydney University, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and UTS! The property also has quick access to the City West Link Motorway and new light rail services taking you to Darling Harbour.

Bound by a formal hallway are three oversized bedrooms, kitchen, a generous living/lounge room and also a formal dining room. These two latter rooms are warmed in winter by open fires- one gas one wood. The large kitchen overlooks the back garden. A sun drenched barbecue equipped courtyard adjoins expansive gardens and lawns. The original bathroom combines a bathtub and shower. The outside entertainment area also has a second toilet. There is on street parking, a garage as well as a long driveway to accommodate more parking.

Stunning period details have been retained throughout the home including, polished timber floors, lead light windows, sunken bay windows, high ornate ceilings and fireplaces. The outside laundry facilities are concealed close to the clothesline.

We have a cat called "Mia" and a small fish pond :)

Ideally, we are looking for someone who is neat and tidy and will respect our home and its belongings. Would prefer a single person but willing to consider a couple.
We also have a country property, (67 acres), 3 hrs North of Sydney. My husband has taken a new job up there. At the moment, I go up roughly every second weekend to spend time with him or he comes down. We are hoping to find someone who will share our home in Sydney which will allow me to spend longer periods up north with him. So there will be many times where you will have the home to yourself. As we are both school teachers, we will also be out of Sydney during the school holidays.

About Me
I am currently working as a primary school teacher in Sydney having graduated from Sydney University. My husband is a high school Special Ed teacher working. We both enjoy travelling and do this most school holidays. We have already visited most of Europe, Great Britain, USA, Vietnam, Fiji and Sri Lanka. In 2017 we explored Africa for 3 months and then did a 2 month trip to Europe. During this time away we rented our house out to a lovely American family through sebatical.com. My husband is now working 3 hrs north of Sydney. ( We have a rural property up North also.) I currently travel up and down to be with him. Our plans are to eventually move/work in the country and rent our Sydney home out in the meantime.
