Our house has two bedrooms and is on a double block in Brunswick West with a large garden. The house is renovated with air conditioning, central heating, a slow combustion fire and lots of north facing windows. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and large (two person) bath. We have four small dogs: two "older ladies": a jack russell terrier and a west highland terrier cross; and two slightly younger boys: a poodle/schnauzer cross and maltese cross. All are friendly, healthy and like a daily walk. The dogs are used to me working from home but tend to spend their days asleep in the sun. We also have a goldfish in the outside pond. If our dry autumn continues, the garden will require hand watering, however, the vegie garden has automated watering. There will be plenty of limes on the tree in April for a G&T on the rear deck at sunset. Our house is 20 minutes walk to Sydney Road (there is also a twice-hourly bus) and it is 30 minutes on the number 19 and 55 trams to the city or 20 minutes on the Upfield train. Our location in Brunswick West is quiet with parks and cafes nearby, plus the Zoo and Royal Park are 15 minutes away on the 55 tram. Our friend who used to house-sit for us described our place as "the dream house".
