The Stables: renovated 1880s home in charming Carlton North (near Unimelb)

Carlton North, Victoria, Australia
Rates from AUD $910 | Weekly

Apartment or Condo | Entire Home
Available Dates:
From October 1, 2024 until December 1, 2025


This two-storey self-contained dwelling, with two large bedrooms and two bathrooms, is part of a Victorian-era property. Now fully renovated to contemporary standards, the premises originally served as stables, whence the name. Ideally located within walking distance of the University of Melbourne, the property has its own entrance from the street at the rear of the property, and a separate address with letter box to match. The residence consists of an open plan kitchen/dining/living area downstairs with bedrooms above. The kitchen is small but well-equipped with a full-size fridge, a full-size oven, gas burner stove-top, dish washer and a microwave. The downstairs bathroom has a claw-foot bath and a telephone shower with a wall fitting. An alcove separates the bathroom from the living area and houses a generous storage cupboard. The bedrooms upstairs front onto a full-length balcony, shielded from the neighbours by bamboo. The larger room, with Queen-sized bed and built-in robes, is used as the main bedroom. The smaller currently has single beds for two children (or guests). For long-term tenants, a double bed can be substituted on request. This second room has an ensuite bathroom and a large dressing room. A washing machine and tub are tucked into one corner of the dressing room. The lounge area downstairs has generous seating. Sliding doors lead from the lounge outdoors to a pleasant grassy area with a lemon tree and an ornamental pear. On-site parking is possible. The neighbourhood is charming and popular with Melbournians, offering ample opportunities for exercise, shopping, and eating out. Rathdowne Village, with its numerous little cafes and restaurants, is just around the corner. Edinburgh Gardens, one of Melbourne's loveliest parks, is a short walk away. Curtain Park, a favourite with families, is even closer. The city itself is not far distant. Half an hour's stroll along pleasant avenues lined with heritage houses, will get you to the city's edge. A bike lane along Canning Street is one of the most popular cycling routes on the north side of the city. The location is convenient for anyone visiting the University of Melbourne and its associated hospitals, or RMIT. The main house, fully separate apart from a shared wall, is likely to be occupied by the owners (retired academics).
