Come to Marrickville, and go back in time. To the 1960s and 70s (though those Wassily chairs admittedly were designed in 1925 - they're originals, too, not cheap copies).
Marrickville has become very groovy of late - it's now so cool that I'm going to have to start dressing better when I walk down the street.
First it was the café scene that exploded, now it's small bars. Have a look at my other listing to find out a bit more about Marrickville.
This new listing is a one bedroom flat we have just bought in a building around the corner from where we live. It's in one of those classic 1970s buildings that Sydney has lots of. The apartment is on the third floor, and there are stairs. The building has intercom entry and the apartment is very private.
This is a dedicated Airbnb apartment - it's not one of those places where somebody lives and then scurries back to mum and dad's when they have a booking leaving their clothes and toothbrush and stuff like that hanging around.
It is 100 metres from a supermarket and bus stop, and 400 metres from the railway station. Between the flat and the railway station are cafes, a bar, bakery and a shop that runs pickling and cheese making classes (it's become that sort of suburb).
The photos are just snaps I took with my phone. I'll be getting better ones when I get a chance. How good are those curtains! And that bedspread. All originals.
The only room not in the photos is the laundry - it's not very exciting, though it does have a washing machine in it.
Down the track, the flat will be getting a new kitchen and of course the price will be going up.
But for now, this is your chance to rent an apartment in a good part of Sydney for a budget price.
Note: There is only one review for this place because it's new. There are dozens of reviews for our other property just around the corner, which is only of use because they indicate I'm not a decent person
Also note: There is no Wi-Fi, so you'll have to go to one of the local cafes or get yourself a 'dongle' - I think that's what they are called, though the person who told me that might have been making it up in the hope that I would write it and look silly.
