About the Area
Our house is located close to the number 55 tram which goes to the city, past University of Melbourne and hospitals. It is near parkland and some shops. Supermarket shopping is a tramride away or you can come in the car for a bigger shopping trip. The area is pleasant and there are native birds. The tram goes past the Zoo which has native species including kangaroos and platypus. You're near the city, but it's peaceful.

Eating should mainly happen in the kitchen, only in bedrooms if really necessary (eg. sick.)
Heaters operate in waking hours.
