The SpaceOriginal vintage 1950s double-fronted weatherboard house. New paint & carpet throughout. Large kitchen. Working wood stove/oven (wood-fired pizza!), as well as gas cooking & heating. Beautiful HUGE backyard with BBQ, ponds, fruit trees, home grown veggies, chickens & a permaculture food forest. Free wi-fi, large, modern stainless steel fridge, Italian water filter, 6.5kg washing machine (no dryer but washing line does the job). Very deep, old-school bath + shower, excellent hot water system. Leafy outdoor undercover 'smoker's room' with views of the garden, comfy lounge suite, coffee table, hammock, fairy lights & piped music, near veggies & BBQ - great for entertaining! Guest AccessYou would have access to all common areas of the house &, of course, the beautiful garden.
It's also very close to amenities - the local shopping strip is small, but has all the basics (including a supermarket) & it's only 1km away from the house.
We have NETFLIX! Password is same as the WiFi password.
On-street parking is unlimited & there's always space out the front.
There is also a huge garage for bikes, storage, projects, etc. Interaction with GuestsI'm a friendly, unpretentious outgoing type that enjoys getting to know others. I'm told I'm a good conversationalist, & I know the city well, so I'm happy to share my local knowledge with you.
I'm also a permaculturist, an artist, musician & former radio DJ, so if cultural stuff is your thang I can probably give you some pointers about what's going on in town. I work from home sometimes as a freelance proofreader & editor, & do a few odd-jobs as well. The NeighborhoodPascoe Vale is a working-class area & hardly the most exciting suburb around, not a lot goes on here. What it does have is a sterling collection of eccentrics & a great sense of community.
And it's not far to trendier areas (like Brunswick), where cafes, bars, & well-dressed people abound. Getting AroundI have a spare bike & helmet you are welcome to borrow free of charge.
Convenient access to airport.
Public transport is also very close & convenient.
Pascoe Vale train station (Craigieburn Line) is just a 10 minute walk away & is on the same street as the property which makes it very easy to find. The train connection to the city takes 25 minutes each way.
Alternatively you have the 513 bus (that runs down Bell St) & connects with a whole range of tram lines.
If you're driving we're close to the following main arterials: Bell St, Citylink, Tullamarine Freeway, Calder Freeway & The Western Ring Rd. Other Things to NoteThis is a meat-free vegetarian permaculture household. You would need to be cool with that.
2 guests maximum please.
Please don't arrive prior to the check-in time we agree on.
