Double room $160 per week, fully furnished, carpeted, queen-sized bed, BIR, linen provided or BYO, ducted gas heating, looking west out into leafy courtyard shady in summer, private and quiet from the street. Short-term or long-term lease.

Close to bus routes, shopping facilities (Cook Shops and Jamison Plaza), hospital (Calvary) and health services, AIS, UC, Belconnen Town Centre. ANU 6 kms.

All facilities in the house are available to share with the owner and two other residents (Masters candidates at ANU). Suit post-grad student or visiting staff member. Overseas students welcome. Owner is a retired astronomer and communications scientist who lives alone. The house has a lounge area with slow combustion wood fire in winter (complemented by ducted gas heating) opening onto a rear deck. Kitchen has large gas cooktop, electric oven, microwaves, separate refrigerators and pantry areas, recycled timber benches. The house is configured for economy, with organic vegetable garden, composting bins and a philosophy of "comfortable thrift". A single shared bathroom and toilet requires some mindfulness on the part of guests for the needs of others. The owner cleans the bathroom and toilet, vacuums the common areas of the house etc, but guests are responsible for their own rooms, washing, food preparation, cooking and cleaning of dishes and receptacles and their own shared microwave oven and refrigerator. Guests share wifi NBN for $3. 50 per week (500GB/month, 15Mbps download).

Two week's bond is required in advance. No written lease, as arrangements are based upon trust and due consideration, which has worked well in the past. Suit a quiet and conscientious post-graduate student. Please call, text or email Clint for further information and to arrange an inspection.
