Newtown, New South Wales, Australia
Rates from AUD $3600 | Monthly

House | Entire Home
Available Dates:
From April 1, 2023 until August 1, 2023


In the heart of lively and lovely Newtown: a comfortable, private, well-planned single-storey home on a safe, quiet street. Walk three minutes to all the wonders and conveniences of King Street and Enmore Road, seven minutes to Newtown Station, 15 - 20 minutes to Sydney University. Easy, frequent direct buses (if you don't feel like walking) take you also to UTS, Notre Dame and UNSW. Originally built at the turn of the last century, this house has been thoughtfully renovated over many years. Most recent are completely new bathroom and kitchen, 2022. Reconfigured from a three-bedroom house, there are now two large bedrooms, each with a double bed. The front room has the flexibility to hide the bed away, with a charming, practical study nook and decorative fireplace. The spacious living/dining room leads to a private courtyard with a timber deck, perfect for outdoor dining. The kitchen is equipped with new dishwasher and induction stove, microwave, homewares and appliances. Pantry stocked with essentials. In the living room is a good piano, smart tv, micro hi fi system and reverse cycle air conditioning. There is a large bathroom with deep tub, separate shower, washer, dryer and underfloor heating. Also a second separate contemporary WC. Broadband (wi-fi) internet access and landline telephone included--unlimited local and national calls, unlimited data. Features include polished timber floors, high decorative ceilings, skylights and a small, attractive garden. The house is furnished with classic Persian rugs, original Australian artwork including contemporary Aboriginal pieces, built-in wardrobes with plenty of storage, comfortable mattresses and Roman blinds. Heating in all rooms. The attic houses my art studio and additional storage. If you would like to use this space, it is available to you via a modern retractable ladder in the hallway. You can easily travel almost anywhere on foot, train or bus from here, but if you need to drive, GoGet and Car Next Door serve the area. Train is 8 minutes to Central, 11 minutes to Town Hall. However Newtown has so much to do, you may not want to leave the neighbourhood. Stroll out day or night to the Dendy Cinema, Enmore Theatre, countless restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, music venues, parks, Saturday Markets, street art and people-watching. The house is best suited to a single person, couple/2 adults, adult/s with a child, or two couples. I am an artist and retired teacher, and my adult son is a musician. When we are away at the same time, we make the house available for others to enjoy. A local friend and handyman will be on call to help with any questions or practicalities during your stay.
