An attractive, well located one bedroom apartment opening onto a lush garden. Located in Haberfield, a heritage suburb in Sydney's inner west. Harborside walks and parkland and great restaurants and cafes within 2minutes walk The space My garden apartment is located on the lower floor of my home. It is completely self contained with separate entrance so you are ensured of privacy. The apartment is simply but tastefully furnished with polished concrete floors with rugs and contemporary furniture. It has a lovely light and spacious feel because it opens onto a lush garden with double glass doors in both the living area and bedroom. It is very cool in summer and easy to heat in winter. The bathroom has a shower and is an open "wet room' style with modern fittings, blue Italian floor tiles and inset mosaic tiles on the walls. The living area has kitchen with marble benchtop, small cooktop and kitchen appliances. It is an open area with lounge and a small dining area with dining table and chairs that looks out onto the garden. There are bookcases stocked with books for your enjoyment as well as a tv. All bed linen and towels are supplied and wi fi internet is included. The apartment is located in Haberfield, an inner western suburb of Sydney, which specialises in everything Italian. There is an Italian supermarket and delicatessen as well as numerous specialist gourmet shops including a cheese shop, bread shop, pasta shop and many restaurants and cafes. Buses into the city go regularly from across the road and the train station is just 10 mins away. A bus trip to the centre of the city takes 20 minutes. You will be just minutes from Iron Cove bay, which is an extension of Sydney Harbour. If you are into running, walking or cycling there is a fantastic bike and walking path that circles the bay. You can access this path just down the hill from the apartment. Suburbs such as Newtown, with its many interesting shops, cinema and restaurants are nearby and there is a modern cinema just 5 minutes away in the next suburb of Leichhardt. Guest access You have direct access to the garden from your apartment where you can use the clothes line and enjoy relaxing. All kitchen equipment is provided, including a new washing machine, 2 burner cooktop, toaster and convection microwave. It is also close to cinemas and entertainment precincts in the city and Leichhardt and Newtown. May 2018 Lynne's apartment is really cute and nicely decorated with a beautiful backyard. It is located in the completely wonderful suburb of Haberfield, which has great Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes and little shops. The buses are convenient for getting into downtown Sydney - it's 30 min from the door taking the bus to the University of Sydney. There's a beautiful park really close by with tennis courts and a great path for running and cycling. I really enjoyed my 3 month stay! Beatrice Sept 2017 I have spent about a year in Lynne’s flat in Haberfield: it has everything to make someone happy! The location is perfect, with many shops and good restaurants nearby as well as close access to public transport. Haberfield is a quiet, safe area and people are very friendly in this suburb. The University of Sydney is only a short bus-trip away. The flat is fully furnished, and opens towards a luxurious garden: it really feels like you live in your own house! It has a good gas-heater for the ‘cold’ months and it is also easy to keep the flat cool during summer thanks to its large windows on both sides. I have spent many happy days working at home in Lynne’s flat and would not hesitate to recommend it to any academic looking for a quiet, beautiful place to stay in Sydney! EP Feb 2015 I loved it there so much I stayed there twice. I felt like I was in a small Italian town, not a big city, staying there. But it was still very close to the action in the downtown/CBD. I would recommend the apartment for anyone that wants a cozy neighborhood in a big city. Danielle July 2014 We stayed in Lynne’s lovely flat from February to July 2014. We had expected to leave at the beginning of May and extended our stay… twice – that says it all really! Debbie September 2013 I spent a wonderful 4 months living at Lynne's apartment in Haberfield while on a visiting fellowship at Sydney Uni. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone undertaking a sabbatical at Sydney Uni. I was extremely happy there. R.Lamb February 2013 My wife and three year-old daughter and I stayed at Lynne's place for three weeks in January. It's a great little home from home in Sydney, just near many Italian restaurants and a great Italian supermarket. Highly recommended and I hope we'll be back sometime sooner rather than later! A. Polaine December 2012 My girlfriend and I spent 3 months in this place in spring/summer of 2012 and we loved staying there. Lynne, the owner, is absolutely lovely and was very helpful. Staying at her home was a pleasure and we would return any time. Bruno
