Overview

About the property

YOUR ACCOMMODATION

One of four Edwardian solid-brick terraces in a quiet street, Jasper Cottage has two bedrooms, one with queen-size bed, the other with a double bed. Both have built-in robes and good natural light.

Polished jarrah flooring is laid in the bedrooms, hall and bathroom, with slate in the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. Lightwells give the bathroom/laundry and the dining areas a bright, open feel. Relaxing on the sofa and chairs in the sunny, north-facing space at the rear, you can gaze through the full-width windows onto the pretty brick courtyard, shaded by blue and white wisteria.

A well-equipped kitchen is provided. Have breakfast in the sun at the wrought-iron setting in the courtyard, surrounded by exotic plants and flowers; and after a hard day's enjoyment in Carlton and the city, vege out with TV, a DVD, the sound system - or settle down for a good read with one of the books from the shelf.

Heating is by radiator panels in each room, with reverse-cycle airconditioning in the open-plan living/dining area.

Double brick and quiet neighbours mean you hear very little from either side, or from the local-traffic street outside.

LOCATION

You're perfectly located for enjoying all of inner-Melbourne's attractions - centrally placed to reach the city, or funky Brunswick St, or the fine old terraces of North Carlton and Fitzroy. Every way you walk, you'll find elegance and interest - and locals enjoying themselves.

Your cottage is in a one-way residential street, with beautiful old plane trees in the centre nature strip, and maples along each footpath. It's far enough away from through-traffic streets to be quiet, but near enough to eat at any of the good restaurants along Rathdowne St within a 2-minute walk - or pick up a great takeaway chinese at Fu Lu's!

A bus runs into the city every ten minutes, just round the corner in Rathdowne St. Or walk five minutes to Lygon St and catch a tram into the city, or out to Brunswick. Or rent a bike for a couple of dollars.

PARKING: Visitors parking permits are available for limited street parking. For longer-term parking, GreenCo Parking has convenient and cheap ($7-17/day) 24-hour parking lots in Fitzroy and Carlton, both about 10 minutes walk from the cottage.

ATTRACTIONS

- Wander along the beautiful old streetscapes in Carlton, North Carlton, Fitzroy, Collingwood

- Lively Lygon St is a five minute walk, with Italian cafes, high-fashion shops and the classy Nova cinema

- Walk round the corner from the cottage to the right into Rathdowne St for fine restaurants and cafes, all the way up through North Carlton

- Or turn left and there's more fine French restaurants; keep walking for 15 minutes, past the beautiful Exhibition Gardens with Imax and museum, and you're at the city's edge

- Walk seven minutes to Brunswick St, and catch the weird, the wonderful, the wacky, tacky and lip-smacky that is the beehive of cafes, pubs and funky fashion in the streets of Collingwood and Fitzroy

- Take a bus or tram into the city. In ten minutes you can be shopping, visiting the national galleries, Federation Square, Southbank on the Yarra, or just exploring Melbourne's endless attractions!

Great property, in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Jasper Cottage is a great home away from home, which I would highly recommend. The location could not be better; It's in a great neighbourhood, but still walking distance to the city. It is full of character, and preferable to a generic apartment. It would suit a family of four, or two couples. The host, Peter, is also very helpful.

Awesome location and well supplied

  • 4 of 5

This part of Carlton is a great place for a Melbourne holiday, close to public transport and shops etc. The house has everything you need and is very comfortable / well-presented. Only negative is that the kitchen needed a bit of cleaning when we first arrived. Great time away.
