A single large room with an attached private sunroom/office, in a house of three other occupants. Situated close to public transport (10mins to airports, 20 to CBD, Newtown) and shops/cafes. Directly opposite us is a series of connected parks and bush/rainforest walks, including abseiling sites.
In all, it is a friendly house of working professionals (and what a dull and uninspiring phrase that is). Age range is 29-36, and though we've no hard and fast rules, the general idea is to be nice and not set fire to anyone (or anything. Excepting, well, the fireplace). If you're arriving late, try not to make too much noise given most work on weekdays, but you also don't need to creep around.
Just ... normal, run of the mill stuff. You'll also note that I've quite an extensive book collection. Feel free to read, but please do your utmost to keep them in good condition and return them to their place once you're done.
The bus (the 423) leaves from across the road outside the gym, and runs straight through Marrickville and Newtown, so you've quick access to Sydney's bohemian best, and then passes by Broadway before reaching the CBD.
The train is located at the bottom of the hill (easy to descend, a touch on the steep side returning), and departs roughly every twenty minutes to Circular Quay via the airports and Central.
If you're looking for things to do in Sydney, I'm an entertainment journalist, so quite happy to offer any advice or tips.
Oh, and you can smoke in the backyard if needs be.
