Hi, we are seeking a caring person to house sit our lovely 2 bedroom Californian Bungalow in a beautiful neighbourhood in northern Footscray. The house has beautiful original timber floors, leadlight windows and heritage details, with fans in bedrooms. It has heating/cooling in the living room, freshly renovated kitchen and bathroom, great size yard with firepit and festoon lighting. The house is a 5 minute walk to the tram (goes to Footscray Station and Highpoint Shopping Centre), or 2 minute walk to 3 separate bus lines that go to Footscray Station (less than 10 min journey).

You will be sharing the house with our 4 year old Schnoodle Pippa, who loves cuddles, walks and fetching her tiny-dog sized ball. She is house trained and very well behaved, and makes friends wherever she goes. While she can be left alone during the day, we are hoping to find someone who will be mindful of not leaving her alone too long and take her on daily walks. . She is a very happy and loving dog and will be content to curl up on your lap while you watch TV. We also have some house plants that will probably only require watering once or so, and a small back and front garden that will likely only need a water if there is a sustained hot/dry period. We can provide a comfy double bed and desk if you are working from home, and cafes are only a short walk away for your caffeine fix. Bars and live music are only a 5-10 min tram ride away, with some great restaurants in walking distance (Uighur, Vietnamese, pizza, French bakery and more) or more 5-10 mins on the tram. An oval with beautiful city views is a 15 min walk away, excellent at sunset and for picnics. The Maribyrning river and historic Footscray Park are all approx 1km away, and nearest supermarket is a 15 min walk.

We live on a lovely quiet street with great neighbours, and this is a great opportunity to experience the exciting culture, food and bar scene Footscray is becoming famous for - it has been voted the 13th coolest neighbourhood in the world!
