About

Mistress/Master bedroom in Victorian terrace house. Your own private balcony that looks onto the street. There is room for you to work at home, in the privacy of your room. Walking distance to Sydney Uni, UTS and Notre Dame. 8 minutes bike ride to UNSW. 8 mins walk to Redfern station. A historical gem in the heart of the city, filled with sunlight. Gas cooking and heating, separate living and dining rooms. Great house to entertain in but also a peaceful retreat. Bath. Loads of books and art. Excellent stereo. Smart TV, Netflix and DVD/VCR. Well equipped kitchen. Lots of different spaces enable independent living. One person can have a BBQ in the backyard while the other is watching TV and neither will hear a thing. A front porch where you can watch the street go by. North-east facing backyard with barbecue, worm farm, chillis, herbs, orchids, and tall palm trees. You will be sharing with me, a writer and artist who works at home. I'm often out in the evening but when home like to read or watch TV. Friends visit. I'm a good cook and enjoy the occasional house dinner with my housemates; mutual privacy is also important. I'm an omnivore but try to eat ethically. I work traditional hours at my desk, sometimes Saturdays too. As my study is at the back of the house I'm an unobtrusive presence. I have a 15 year-old cat who is very relaxed and comes in at night. Smoking outside is permitted. Situated a short 8 minute walk from Redfern railway station, the house is a quiet haven a few steps away from the thriving cafe/bar strip of Redfern. 12 minutes walk to UTS, Sydney Uni, Chinatown and Central station, 15 minutes to Centennial Park, Surry Hills and Newtown. Also within walking distance are two supermarkets, a Lebanese and Chinese greengrocer, two newsagents, baker, and loads of funky restaurants.
