Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We live in the inner city neighbourhood of Fitzroy, Australia - Melbourne well known for its day and night life with its designer shops, cafes, restaurants and entertainment. Lygon Street, Carlton and Brunswick Street, Fitzroy are both within easy walking distance and provide fashion, food and fun! Lygon Street is home to many of Melbourne City's traditional Italian restaurants.

The Universal Theatre Apartments occupies a converted warehouse that was once home to avant garde theatre and cinema and to a range of community media organisations for many years. The 3 story building was architecturally converted and renovated in 2008 to accommodate 17 one and and two bedroom apartments. There is no lift. Access is via the front door 3 levels or via the garage 2 levels. We are located on the top third level in an open plan designed one bedroom apartment with an ample bathroom and living, dining and kitchen area. It is very spacious (75 sqm) and comfortable.

The apartment is light and airy and has a north facing floor to ceiling window and is warm in winter and summer. From the balcony there are views across the suburbs. On the street level is located a number of art and natural therapy organisations and next door is the Southern School of Natural Therapies. This is a safe and friendly community.

We are well served by trams and buses to and from the centre of the City and to the seaside and many of Melbourne's renowned and eclectic inner suburbs in between.
