Fitzroy is a buzz with art, coffee, and design. Amidst all this is The Factory. We imagined this space around our lifestyle. Relaxed with an eclectic design touch inspired by our joint love of art, photography, music, sustainability and food.
On offer is our spare bedroom. The room is large enough for a queen size bed and side tables with extra personal space provided off your bedroom with a balcony. Pull out the deck chairs and relax with a cuppa, or a cheeky drink later in the day.
You will also have the use of the main bathroom as well as the generous indoor/outdoor living, dining and kitchen areas. If kicking back with a book, cooking and relaxing is your thing then this is the space for you!
The Factory is set inside an old chocolate factory, originally built around the now gated Macrobertson Close. The gated lane leads to a grand common area with palm and cherry trees that create our outlook. We purchased in early 2014 and have been slowly doing it up.
In the room you will find linen, bedding, towels, split system heating and cooling, and a small lockable safe.
There is a washer & dryer in the main bathroom.
The ground floor has shared open plan living areas with a dining table, lounge and a grand piano for the musically inclined. The kitchen includes a gas stove and oven with plenty of herbs and spices. For fresh seasonal herbs make your way to the patio where you will also find an amazing outdoor day bed to enjoy on a sunny day.
There are split system heating and cooing units on each level as well as ducted heating throughout.
Interazione con gli ospiti
As an artist and a contractor I work from home on the top floor and I’m in and out of the house depending on my schedule. My girlfriend Kate also lives here and works a day job and is a photographer in her spare time. We’re both friendly and sociable people.
No pets, smoking or children under 10 (sorry - the staircase is definitely not kid safe).
No parties except for pre-arranged dinner parties. Keep the kitchen clean for communal use and be generally respectful of our space.
No Hollywood piano moments – meaning no drinks, food or people on the piano...but PLEASE play it!
