The space
BEAUTIFULLY-RENOVATED: Bluestone Cottage was a wrecked 1900s 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 250/25
FREE Netflix, Apple TV+ and Amazon Prime on a very Smart TV
NEW Hydronic heating just installed

Covid Welcome Basket with masks, sanitiser, and more, chocolate and chips on a good day.

QUIET QUIETER QUIETEST
The cottage is tucked in a dead-ended laneway with zero traffic and no noise. The proverbial baby sleeps well every time.

STYLISH BRIGHT & SPACIOUS LIVING ROOM.
Comfy sofa, lots of chairs, great lighting, and a very Smart Samsung Serif TV. Some good books (please return) Cards Against Humanity and some other 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 - but cools the whole house if doors are left open and we have lots of fans too.

NEW: HYDRONIC HEATING was installed in April 22, so you'll be nice and toasty through winter.

TWO LOVELY BEDROOMS
No feathers - low-allergen - multiple pillows. The beds are brand-new and incredibly comfortable with pocket-sprung mattresses, 400/500 thread cotton sheets, cotton/wool doonas/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.

BED ONE has a secret meditation/reading garden
BED TWO has a working laptop desk and a hidden washing machine.

BABY / KID STUFF ON REQUEST:
Portacot with bedding and baby pillows.
High Chair. Kids crockery. Toys and games.
Fabulous playgrounds and parks nearby.

PETS
Water and food bowls in the kitchen miscellaneous cupboard
A kennel in the garden on request

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.

The garden & deck area is much larger than it looks in the photos. Cats can be carefully swung, teenage children, not so much.

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. 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 great insulation keep the house cool. All the main windows open to allow pass-through breezes.

HYDRONIC HEATING - Winter 22/3
Finally installed in April 22, so you'll be nice and toasty through winter. If you need extra heating fan heaters and a Dyson are also available in the bedrooms.

** PLEASE TURN OFF AIR & HEAT when you go out! **

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

Where you’ll be

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 teenage 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. - I am enjoying hosting my guests and have met some lovely people (and dogs) in the last year (-:
