About this listing
Experience the This charming home is backs onto a parkland
Relaxing, comfortable, light filled home with outdoor entertainment area. Every window looks out onto natural views. With a beautiful garden.
The house has a huge spacious master bedroom with a Queen size bed. This room is light, spacious and peaceful, and features a full en-suite bathroom. The bedroom has a beautiful bay window overlooking parklands.
The second bedroom is occupied adjacent to main bathroom. In the lounge room we have a double futon couch available for extra guests.
You will be sharing this beautiful space with my housemate in second bedroom and a tenant who lives below in a converted garage space. They both lead very busy lives, so it is more than likely you will have the whole house to yourself.
The house provides you with comforts like an open fire place, ducted heating, air conditioning, dishwasher, full laundry facilities and off street parking. It's fully equipped with TV, DVD player, wifi / internet access.
This home is in a very safe neighbourhood. It's close to the city, situated opposite parklands. Nearby is a well known artist area by the Yarra river, with river walks and bike trails into the city. The street is famous during the Christmas period for the display of Christmas lights decorations.
We are approximately 10 km from downtown Melbourne with easy access to public transport and within walking distance to a vibrant local shopping strip, cafes, pubs and galleries.
So come and enjoy yourself in a beautiful space and bring your camera to capture the wildlife and beauty of nature. You will feel like you are in the country and yet are only 20mins away from the centre of Melbourne.
They have access to the whole house except the second bedroom and under the house.
Interaction with Guests
There will be someone to meet and greet you on arrival and run through the details of the house and a list of what to see in the area.
Eaglemont is a well established and affluent area and was originally built by Walter Berle Griffith a famous architect who designed our parliament house in Canberra. After you step outside our door and walk for 5 mins you will encounter a horse paddock, an array of Australian animals from cockatoos, lizards, bats and even kangaroos all in our front parkland. Our street is famous at Christmas as all the homes on the Boulevard display Christmas lights and families come out in the summer night to view together. The parkland opposite is by the river which has a bike track that goes for miles from the city and beyond. On the path is known as the artist trail and you can see famous paintings from the artist Arthur Streeton. There is also a famous art gallery only 5 mins drive away called Heidi which displays contemporary artwork. We are only a short walk from the shops and amenities.
There is a bus around the corner and a train which is a 15min walk from the house. The trains run frequently into the city. If you are traveling by car (not in peak hr) it takes only 20mins to the centre of Melbourne.
Please respect our desire to have clean air in our home. No smoking inside the house, no pets preferably.
While the host was interstate her house mate (also called Sharon) was there to welcome us to her lovely home and made us feel very welcome. The master bedroom was very spacious as was the attached ensuite bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and soft. Sharon's place provided a great base for us while visiting friends on that side of town and is very close to the Heide art gallery on the Yarra.
Sharon was a fantastic host, both warm, friendly and made us feel more than welcome in her home.
There was plenty of information there for us about local eating places, transport and shops which was very handy and appreciated.
Her place was clean, comfortable and catered for everything we needed. Beautiful house and lovely area!
We will be staying there again when we get the chance :-).
Thanks again Sharon,
Jackie & Vandan.
