The space
BRAND-NEW-RENOVATION: Bluestone Cottage was a wrecked 1900's house. We have renovated it to a very high standard and fitted it out as if it were our own home. Everything is clean, fresh, and comfortable, with light, space, and energy-efficiency in mind. Come and work or play. Free and Fast Unlimited Internet. Free Street Parking for one car.

FREE Unlimited Fast NBN Wireless Internet UPGRADED to 100/20
FREE Netflix, Apple TV+ and Amazon Prime on a very Smart TV

Covid Basket with masks, sanitizer, and more. Plus peanuts of course (-:

STYLISH BRIGHT & SPACIOUS LIVING ROOM.
Comfy sofa, lots of chairs, great lighting, a very Smart Serif TV with Free Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Apple TV+. Some good books (please return) and some games. Aircon and a ceiling fan too. No, the Eames and Mies Van Der Rohe chairs are not original )-: Open plan to the separate dining area, easy access to but buffered from the kitchen.

NOTE AIRCON IS MAIN ROOM ONLY - cools the whole house if doors left open and we have lots of fans too.

TWO LOVELY BEDROOMS
No feathers - low-allergen - multiple pillows. Both beds are brand-new and incredibly comfortable with pocket sprung mattresses, 500 thread cotton sheets, cotton duvets, and four pillows per person. (Low, two different medium and one high) Nearly all the cotton is Australian Grown. Both bedrooms have lots of hanging space and storage, good lighting, lots of power points, and USB sockets.

NEW ON REQUEST: Portacot for babies, with bedding.

KITCHEN - cook in or take-out - all you need is here
Everything in the kitchen is what we use at home ourselves. Heavyweight pots and pans, every kitchen widget we could think of (suggestions welcome) Noritake porcelain crockery, lovely crystalline glasses for water, wine & champagne. Bosch oven and ceramic hob, Baumatic dishwasher, and a three-drawer Mitsubushi fridge.

DINE IN OR DECKED OUT
The open-plan dining area has huge windows and can be opened to the deck. There is also a six-person table setting outside. The deck itself opens up across bluestone flags to a small native garden. Big sliding windows on two sides overlook the deck. In summer, outside dining on the deck, or inside with the windows open, In winter, coddled behind double-glazing.

ENERGY EFFICIENT & INSULATED
Energy efficiency was a key parameter in the renovation, the roof, floor, and walls are heavily insulated, all windows and doors are double-glazed and all lighting is LED. All appliances were chosen for performance and efficiency. As the insulation is so good, heating and aircon are only rarely necessary. All materials used are sustainable and all paints are low VOC.

COOLING
One 5kw Mitsubishi Heavy Industries split system aircon in the main room, plus ceiling fans and the great insulation keep the house cool. All the main windows open to allow pass-through breezes. *Please turn aircon off when you go out*

HEATING - TBC Winter 21
If you need heat now, please use the aircon unit on heat. Two panel heaters also available. The house has piping installed for a full hydronic central heating system to be installed soon. The serious insulation keeps the house toasty end to end.

ORGANIC
Wherever possible, all the supplies and products we use are both organic and sourced locally in Fitzroy North.

Guest access
The whole house and the deck to use, the native garden to appreciate.
Please walk pets to the park at the end of the street for toilet and exercise as the garden is not suitable as a yard (-: Thanks.

Other things to note
As per recent AirBNB comms and new global rules, 100% No Parties.

Recycling and rubbish bins are behind the left-hand internal garden gate. Key is in the lock. Please empty any food rubbish and leave the house clean and tidy as you would wish to find it. We, of course, will take care of all the bedding, towels, major cleaning etc. Thanks!

Location

Fitzroy North, Victoria, Australia

Quiet, hidden away, leafy and a very real area, close to inner hipsterville and very central to the city. Everything here is walkable. All the shops, cafes and restaurants are independent, not a chain store in sight. Parkland and the Merri Creek Trail are at the end of the street, Edinburgh Gardens is just down the road. You can overdose on greenery within 10 minutes of the CBD.

Trams and trains give easy access to all sporting and cultural events in Melbourne.

"Often referred to as North Fitzroy in reference to its southern neighbour, Fitzroy North has a distinct character, noted for its prevalence of wide streets, intact Victorian and Edwardian era terraced housing and for the Edinburgh Gardens, a large inner-city park"

I'm born & bred Central Londoner, living in leafy Melbourne 3068 since 2015. Having been lucky enough to travel globally for many years, I have stayed in far too many mundane AirBNBs and this has inspired me to make Bluestone Cottage much better than average. Married to Andrea from Melbourne, late-life father of tweenage Tom. I'm a habitual Coffee Shop denizen, a Martini drinker, Sci-Fi and Film Noir lover and a heavy reader - I work in website & business development and am also a total tech-head, and Apple fan.
