This is a beautiful old two bedroom house with decorated high ceilings and polished wooden floorboards. This house stays cool in the summer, because of its three meter ceiling height, and its solid clay construction.
There is a gas bayonet in the lounge room so you can keep warm with a portable gas heater. This house has super fast NBN so it's a big plus for gamers. There is a tv areal jack in the lounge room that gives perfect reception. The old metal fans work great in bedroom and lounge room and are easy to keep clean.
Parking on this street is scarce and if you don't have an extra car to park on the verge it will be promptly taken up by someone else. Usually by someone connected to the building contractor who lives diagonally across the road. This same building contractor runs his business from home and it's not uncommon to get woken up by his tandem trailer banging around in the early hours of the morning and throughout the day. The neighbour at the rear used to clean the leaves out of his swimming pool with a big net and dump them in my yard at night. I found this behaviour unacceptable. On night I noticed the large net emptying leaves into my yard and out come my flashlight and it never happened again.
The house itself is old and has been poorly maintained over the years but it is still a great house to live in. If you are handy and enjoy fixing problems yourself this house should not be a problem for you. The rent is cheep and this house is in a desired neighbourhood close to everything.
