The Studio Apartment
A new, furnished, freestanding studio apartment in the backyard of my house in Brunswick. Has a separate street entrance so you have complete independence - come and go as you please. Newly built with very high green credentials, it is really cozy and warm.
It accommodates 2 people in a very very comfy queen size bed (with King size duvet/quilt!). A fold out bed can be provided for an extra guest - inquire for details.
The Studio is very quiet, and some people have commented that its bigger than it looks in the photos.
Studio has a basic kitchen - bar fridge, single induction cooker, microwave oven, sink.
You are very welcome to use the full kitchen & laundry inside the house if you need more :)
With reverse cycle air-conditioning, it is very clean with modern bathroom, toilet and a very comfy queen size bed, and comfy fold out bed.
Also has wireless internet and big screen TV.
Car parking permit for 1 car (on the street) is provided.
The studio apartment has been built in an environmentally sustainable way, with the following 'green' features
- extremely good insulation
- electricity from 100% green sources
- solar hot water
- double glazed windows
Also, there is a nice deck for afternoon drinks (or any other time for that matter :)
There is a separate street entrance to the studio, so you can come and go as you please without coming through the house.
Brunswick is bursting with cafes, night-life, restaurants (Thai, Indian, Japanese, Lebanese, Greek, Italian (holds world record for "Best Martguerita") & lots more) within 5 minutes walk.
Brunswick is a student area which makes it vibrant and youthful (that's why I live here). However, the studio apartment is quiet as it is off the main strip.
Melbourne University is an easy bike or tram ride. There are trams to the city (20mins by tram), RMIT, Carlton within a couple of mins walk.
About 30 meters down the street is the local Community Garden - a very sweet place to hangout or just lay on the grass and read a book.
Very close to:
- public transport (trams 1 & 8, & trains). Tram to city is 5 min walk,
- restaurants, cafe's, bars.
- many specialty shops close, and large supermarket 10 mins walk
- and if you are a shopper, Sydney Road is the longest shopping strip in Australia, with lots of interesting shops of all descriptions.
Also, you are very welcome to jump on the bike and go for a ride. There is 1 bike here that you are welcome to use. (If need another, the bike shop around the corner does daily & weekly rentals). Melbourne has great bike paths, and one of the main ones is very close
If you have your own bike, storing it in the back yard is fine :)
I can loan you 2 or 3 Myki travel SmartCards for you to use on the Melbourne Public Transport system - this saves you having to buy your own (they cost $6 each)
You can simply add credit and use mine - easy :)
Public Transport is very close (both trams & trains).
Feel free to ask lots of questions - very happy to answer them :)
I look forward to you coming to stay.
Easy going overall, but no wild drinking sessions/parties - I have very nice neighbors and don't like to annoy them :)
Also, no candles (just too dangerous).
