extra queer friendly, has a veggie patch, chemical free

Available NOW (Aug 28th)
Fantastic Richmond location close to all transport (trains, tram, bus) and shops, Library, cafes etc, although the surrounds are now more commercial-looking than strictly residential.
Our place stands out as a green jungle oasis in a grey concrete desert - lots of birds and other critters!

The house is very small and very old, completely decorated and furnished in retro style, although the kitchen cupboards, stove, microwave and washing machine are modern. And YES the toilet, laundry and bathroom are indoors these days!
The room offered is 3.5m x 3.5m, polished boards, high ceiling, wallpapered (discrete stripe pattern) and fully furnished (single bed x 2) It has excellent morning light and is lockable.

We are a mature-aged household. 40s male PhD student and 45+ FIFO/community worker.
Housemates are early risers leading very busy and active lives, working long hours and also involved in both voluntary and community work, but are quiet-living, so any students can easily focus on study, or shift-workers can get their rest.
We are completely non smoking, almost non drinking and do not tolerate aggression, drug use or similar destructive / addictive behaviours.
We prefer to not have pets due to the number of wild animals that haunt our place 24/7- possums, bats, birds (some rare!), lizards, bees.....we 'scant feed' things almost daily and our compost is un-lidded, so the possums raid it at night!. We never get fruit off our tree because the bats and possums take first pick. And last pick....and sometimes parrots eat everything in between!

Eco-conscious, mostly vego and a fairly frugal recycling/upcycling/repurposing/repairing household, avoiding consumerism and minimizing waste as much as possible or practical. Hate over-packaged stuff so try to avoid packaged things if possible. Love Op shops....
We minimize chemical use, preferring natural 'elbow-grease' and vinegar & bicarb methods, but very occasionally have to break out something else for the odd spot-clean.
Each occupant is responsible for their own food purchasing, cooking - although we do sometimes cook to share if time constraints allow it - and laundering, but shares regular cleaning tasks equally with others. We prefer people who do not have to be rostered, pushed or reminded to do the chores, but who just see something needs doing then pitches in, and who are of a naturally thoughtful, communicative and considerate team-worker personality type.

Bills (electricity, gas, water) and bedlinen/bedding are included in rent, as are SOME household basics. Internet is NOT provided
Prefer rent payments as calendar month in advance ($1083.35)

If you are a student and eligible for Student Allowance, we can issue legitimate documentation/receipts so you can claim your benefits.

Eco-shout sharehousing lists notices for sharehouses and people looking to live with like minded souls who are environmentally and socially aware. They may be vegan, vegetarian, organic eaters, lovers of bikes, shunners of tv, plastic and chemicals or just nice people into their veggie patch.
