This house is a turn of the century character villa with a leafy garden in a quiet street, about 15 minutes walk from the CBD. You will be welcomed by three cats (Siamese, Oriental and Tonkinese) and a mellow Boxer dog, to a sunny downstairs room with a single bed. You are welcome to prepare meals and just sit with a cuppa in our farmhouse kitchen, or grab a book off the shelves and relax in an armchair the lounge.
Within 3 minutes walk there are bus stops for 6 different City routes, as well as shops and numerous takeaway restaurants. We are in a university neighbourhood and Victoria University is a 20 minute walk from our place, past the local shopping village which has some excellent cafes. At the bottom of our street and across the road are the Wellington Botanical Gardens, which host a series of free open air summer concerts.
I am a PhD student living with my flatmate and teenage son. I have travelled a great deal, and my studies are in environmental management and development studies. We are a social, quiet and laid back household, and are non-smokers. Welcome to our home!
