Large beautiful light filled room with balcony in colourful share house. Room is usually inhabited by a young artist, whose book collection and artworks make for a homely and comfortable atmosphere.
The house has open plan living areas, an electric cooker & oven, all usual kitchen amenities, a courtyard garden, two chickens (free eggs), a washing machine and clothesline, downstairs toilet, a myriad of books and records/record player, instruments and art/photos on the walls, which guests are welcome to peruse. The downstairs is pleasantly cool during summer, the vibe is boheme. It is a share house with a community mentality, though at this time of year probably only one housemate will be around, a mid 20s musician/lawyer who is very friendly and somewhat aristocratic. The house is frequented by local artists/musicians/travellers.
The room, the kitchen, bathroom & all downstairs area + backyard are accessible to guests.
Guests are welcome to keep to themselves but we also invite them to hang out with us. We know the area very well and are eager to direct you to the lesser known local events and activities that we ourselves attend.
While the house has been treated for vermin, in this area of Sydney in old houses it is virtually impossible to get rid of all roaches, so just warning you may sight one or two scuttling around and unfortunately there is nothing we can do about it.
- Records back in their sleeves!
- Respect fellow housemates
