The House architect designed and built in 2007 is a two storey town house which my wife and I, both retired professionals, live.
The listing is for a comfortable bedroom with a queen size bed and ensuite bathroom located upstairs, all in complete privacy.
Twenty four hour free on street parking is available
Free Wifi is available throughout the house.
Downstairs visitors will find and have access to a shared dining and cosy open plan living space that looks into a sunny and charming courtyard.
Visitors are served breakfast daily, please inform of any dietary requirements. Tea and coffee facilities are available at all times, cooking is not available
Fresh linen and towels are provided as well as a hairdryer and ironing facilities.
The street is quiet and only open to local traffic. One block away is the charming Rathdowne Village with cafes, bars and restaurants. Two tram routes and one
bus route, one hundred metres away, take you to the city in fifteen minutes. You may walk there in twenty five.
Carlton begins at the northern edge of the CBD. It is famed for its Exhibition Gardens with its World Heritage Exhibition Building. A strikingly post-modern Melbourne Museum borders it. Visitors can walk directly from our front door in fifteen minutes.
Carlton is also famous for The University of Melbourne, easily accessible by public transport or 20 minutes walk. The grounds are particularly pleasant to walk through on your way to the City Centre or the Victoria Market, another landmark tourist destination.
The other attraction to visit is Lygon St. Block after block of restaurants, mainly Italian. Australia’s first espresso machine began operating here in the
early ‘fifties – and it still ‘hangs’ on the restaurant wall; an icon anointing Melbourne as the coffee capital of Australia, and to many, the food capital of the country as well.
In a way, we have a little bit of everything here. We love it.
