About this listing
This is a great neighbourhood – it is quiet, yet close enough to the city and to so many other things such as parks, hip bars and cafés, walking and bicycle trails etc
Charming three bedroom cottage in Thornbury, home of artist/academic. High Street, Northcote (hip bars, cafes and craft stores) are a 10 minute walk east; Sydney Road (ethnic delights and great food) is 7 minute drive west. It is close to trams, trains and buses (30 minutes to the city). Also close to Merri Creek and Ceres Environment park with bicycle trails that you could take all the way into the city.
The house is modest and clean with all new-ish appliances and furniture. Original artwork is everywhere. House stays mostly cool in summer and has central heating in winter. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need to cook your own feasts.
The backyard features well established fruit trees. There may even be some herbs and vegetables growing you could help yourself to.
There are several size beds with all the necessary bedding, plus towels. As well there are desks and wardrobes where you can spread out and make yourself at home.
Modern bathroom and laundry. Lounge has flat screen TV, DVD and HD digital set top box and a pretty good sound system.
The house looks forward to welcoming you and hopes you will be very comfortable here!

Other Things to Note
The kitchen/dining area might get a bit cosy with any more than three adults, but there is plenty of space in the adjoining rooms.
This is our home so please respect personal belongings. If you borrow a book from the library, please put it back when finished.
Please no smoking!
We were very much at home in this charming cottage. It was clearly our host's home and it felt loved in and lived in. Eleni's artwork that decorated the walls really gave the place a touch of class.
All of the necessaries were provided and the kitchen facilities were great. We especially enjoyed the proximity to the Merri creek walking trail for early morning walks.
The house was also close to public transport.
We certainly look forward to staying at this lovely home (if available) the next time we are in Melbourne.
We really enjoyed our stay in Thornbury at Eleni's home. Her home is welcoming, the garden is delightful, and the area is quiet and relaxing, but only a short walk to the tram. Best wishes Eleni, Sheryl
The house suited our family perfectly. The bedrooms and lounge are large and comfortable, the garden just the right size for a bit of the outdoor life.
All amenities were there and the location was great for us. The kitchen was a little difficult to maneuver in and sparsely equipped but that was a minor inconvenience.
I would recommend this house for your Melbourne stay.
