The SpaceWelcome to our 18th Century barn/muse conversion. This property is our Sydney home as we travel between the Gold Coast and Sydney frequently.
The muse features a high-end renovation in a modern feel while keeping some of the older features of the original building.
Downstairs you will enjoy 35 square meters of kitchen and living space with a downstairs power room, 3.5m high ceilings, and a 2.5 seater comfy sofa bed and two lounge chairs. 50” LED Full HD SMART TV so if you have Netflix you can login and enjoy your favorite shows and movies and if your worried about the internet usage we have an unlimited plan so you don’t need to worry about that. (If you don't have Netflix sometimes they offer 30 day free so look them up.
Very rare in smaller Sydney properties you will enjoy the luxury of your own private 27 square meter north facing courtyard. There are by-fold doors allow you to completely open them up so you can open up the whole downstairs space, excellent for entertaining.
The upstairs bedroom again 35 square meters, beautiful polished timber flooring and its own on suite with toilet and shower. Features a king size bed with luxury array of cushions for your comfort, and for those times where you just feel lazy there is a 40" 4K TV In the bedroom.
Both levels have a ducted two-zone air conditioning system.
Our Sydney home is located just 5 minutes walk to Central Station, so the city is just at your fingertips to go and explore. In the evenings UBER is very active in the city and it is really cheap to use. Across the road is one of the most beautiful parks in Sydney, Prince Alfred Park. Recently has had a 10 million dollar upgrade and features tennis/basketball courts and a swimming pool, and acres of space to sit and relax or just read a book in a city fringe setting.
(NOTE: There is no parking with this property. We suggest looking up Parkhound to try and book local's car parking spaces in the area, the rear lane is a right of way and parking in this area could result in towing, but can be used as a load and unload point if you have a vehicle).
So if you feel like a trip where you feel like you are not just staying in Sydney but want to live in Sydney for a bit, and enjoy this little piece of luxury at a third of the cost of a hotel, then you have found your home for next holiday. Guest AccessYou will have exclusive access to the entire space as in the pictures, there are no shared spaces.
(Access is via the rear laneway on Pitt Street)
The property is keyless. On the day of your booking we will give you access instructions - please keep this code to yourself. Interaction with GuestsYou will have your own space, we generally don't socialise with guests. We are always available via AirBnb Message, Text Message and Mobile Phone if you need us. We may check in with a message to see how things are going!
We are often on the Gold Coast, but in the case of an emergency we are just a phone call away and have resources in Sydney to help. The NeighborhoodRedfern which was originally known as Strawberry Fields, is a mix of the 'eclectic', there are the old Italians and Greeks who have lived here for years, there are the older people a lot of which are Russian who live in the Government Supported Housing, there are young upwardly mobile singles and young families with childen.
This, however helps in the fabric of what is a funky and cool cosmopolitan lifestyle. If you've ever seen 'Pretty Woman', where the guy is walking down the Street saying Las Angeles the City where dreams come true, the same can be said of Redfern. It is a suburb where people come from all walks of life, however you could be Sydney's No. 1. Personality on AM Radio, a few well known TV identities, Movie Stars or Department of Housing residents, everyone treats everyone with respect and it is a fun place to be.
The Streets are really well kept by the City of Sydney and most have been landscaped and done up in the last 5 years, it is a green zone and extremely 'Pet' and 'Bicycle' friendly, one of the successful and liveable 'City of Villages' that the Sydney City Council has developed over the last 5 years.
There are amazing Farmers Markets at the Old Eveleigh Train Yards on the Weekends, to cool cafe's and restaurants hidden in Laneway's and back Streets. Lots of true artists and teachers live in and around Redfern, as well as our own Lord Mayor of Sydney.
There are chic ad agencies that create and set most of the trends that the rest of Australia takes on months after they have been the norm in little old Redfern.
There are institutions like "Roger" the best shoe repair man in the whole of Australia and Doytao Thai, the best Thai in Australia, There is 'M Mall' as it is affectionately known by the locals which is actually located in Redfern - but the Shopping Centre owners renamed it "Surry Hills Shopping Mall" 10 years ago - many a fun sight to be seen here, just pop in and sit down on one of the seats for an hour of people watching, its better than any reality TV show you'll ever see. There is Bar Cleveland which was named boutique pub of the year for a few years running, as well as 'Peters Seafood Fish and Chips' on Bourke Street best in the inner city. Nothing beats the First Drop or the Bull Penn for a coffee or Sunday brekky or brunch. Or Danks Street, Waterloo is just a hop skip and a jump around the corner and the Fashionable Shops and Pubs of Surry Hills.
All in all Redfern is a fantastic suburb of Sydney and if you've ever been to New York it is quite similar to parts of Brooklyn. Getting Around(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps and Walking is the best, you are so close to everything so make the most of it, by the time you wait for an Uber or catch a train most of the time you would already be there.
Otherwise use Uber or the Train Network.
If you want to goto Bondi which is a MUST catch the train to Bondi Junction and then a Bus to Bondi Beach - for more info call the transport infoline on 131500 or search (URL HIDDEN)
