The Space

Hi I'm Kirsten. I am an artist and instructional designer living in vibrant Preston.

My 2 bedroom unit is on a quiet street just off the Gilbert Road Tram 11 which takes 35 mins into the city. My unit has got central heating, has lots of natural light and is situated on a quiet street that is a 5 mins walk to tram stop 45 on Gilbert Road.

My house is a 4 minute walk to Woolworths Coburg Hill on Elizabeth Street. I am a 15 min walk to Preston market open Wednesdays to Saturdays, great fresh produce and atmosphere. I love walking there on a Saturday and cooking afterwards. My unit is decorated eclectically with artwork. I enjoy making art, going to galleries, yoga and meditation.

I have done lots of travel myself and am keen to meet like minded individuals who are keen to explore the wonders of my favourite city, Melbourne. I have travelled to South East Asia, Africa, USA, Europe and lived in Japan. I have lots of international friends who I have hosted and I've got plenty of ideas of what to do and see here.

I am about a 25 min taxi from the airport which is about $40. Also a 15 min walk to Preston station. Merri Creek, Coburg Trash and Treasure Market, local cafes and yoga studios are short walks away. I love making ceramics, sculpture and jewellery from my home studio. I also love music and am a short tram ride to Northcote Social Club or Brunswick Street, Fitzroy.

Interaction with Guests

I am happy to interact with guests but some of the time I might be out and about myself.

The Neighborhood

Preston is a great place and an upcoming suburb. the Preston Market is the biggest drawcard. Fresh, cheap food. Preston is also close to suburbs like Brunswick and Northcote for bars and nightspots. I am on the 11 tram which takes you through Northcote, North Fitzroy and popular Brunswick Street, Fitzroy which is a great place for cafes, galleries, shops and bars.

Getting Around

I am a 3 minute walk to a tram stop and 15 walk to Preston train station.
