Le logement

Our house is a Californian Bungalow 1933 -at the end of a quiet no-through road but with quick lane access access to major roads and the 86 tram and Northland bus nearby-through short (URL HIDDEN) typical of the larger worker's houses built in Preston in the 1930's compared to (say) Northcote with its smaller long single frontage homes and street parking only. We have off street parking and a carport -with trellised grapevine and passionfruit vines providing additional shading and atmosphere.
We have lovingly maintained its character features and added a side driveway and matching carport. The house has modern comforts such as air conditioning and Samsung HD televisions in the lounge room and main bed room. The additional single bedroom has only a fan at the moment.
As conservationists and lovers of Australian timbers like red gum and Jarrah we have many items such as cupboard and drawer faces, bookshelves desks and tables made from these and other native timbers.There are energy-efficient lights and appliances throughout the home-and 3 solar arrays -on the carport and the east and west faces of the terracotta tiled roof.There is a lovely study with magnificent single slab desktop and lovely open fireplace.
The kitchen is a good size and all electric with upright stove including oven and rangehood. Also a convection microwave and 500litre modern energy-efficient fridge. We have most of our cupboards faced with jarrah-and a pine kitchen hutch.There is also a "fully loaded" walk-in pantry. There are plenty of appliances including a Rancilio coffee machine with built-in burr grinder.We have a small laundry with a 7kg front load washer.Walk through to the toilet. Our bathroom has a vanity, and shower over an original cast iron enameled deep bath.House hot water is via super efficient Sanden heat pump technology, replenished 11am-6p.m.Solar powered from our panels)
Step out of the front door to an intimate veranda with seats and orchids and sunblind for seclusion-lovely in the morning!
We have minimal backyard but instead a big enclosed secluded front yard with tall fence and gate enclosing flowerbeds and lawns.Citrus and pomegranates and grapes along the fence provide privacy and atmosphere-and organic food!! It's just gorgeous on a sunny day sitting at the outdoor settings under a market umbrella! For outdoor cooking there's a pizza oven(under construction),gas BBQ and Tandoori oven. Along the entire side of the carport is a grapevine shading the car above large colourful raised flower beds.

This interesting well equipped, pet-friendly, older house is close to everything that High Street and Plenty Road have to offer (and that's heaps). It was built in 1933 which means that as soon as you walk in you should look up and take in the decorated ceilings. It's close to Melbourne and has a tram stop a short walk away and a railway station a short drive away, but as the station is right next door to the Preston Market I wouldn't bother getting on a train when the market's open. It's fantastic. It's a great place for a small family (it sleeps three) or a couple of people with a small dog. It has steps at the front and an over the bath shower so may not suit people with lower mobility. It's secure off road undercover parking is a bonus. The house has a very friendly feel and an interesting mix of clutter, it was fun discovering where everything is kept. We loved our stay and would certainly book again if the opportunity for a short break in that area of Melbourne comes up again.

Extremely clean and spacious place. Maurice and Sue and more than generous with what's available to the guests to use. Convenient location, close to public transport and the heart of Preston.

Lovely, cosy home. We really appreciated the well stocked pantry and a few welcoming food items such as the apple juice. My daughter loved playing in the garden. Close to public transport.

The home was comfortable and homely and had a great outside area in the garden. Maurice made us very welcome with ample supplies in the fridge for hot drinks and breakfast each day. Maurice also very kindly provided us with Myki cards.
