Since COVID-19 hit Australia, there has been a multitude of quality rentals come on to the market in top locations, minus the usual competition.
As some tenants move out of their homes due to financial hardship and short-term rentals switch to longer-term listings, there’s greater choice than ever for those seeking a rental.
3/156 George Street, Fitzroy is one example of some of the amazing rentals currently listed – and it’s fully furnished.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is located in a former design school and the building is still home to the iconic creative arts college, Collarts.
Everything in the apartment is included in the rental price, which means the new tenants will be able to enjoy the impressive collection of vintage furniture and artwork the owner has collected from across the globe.
Some of the wow-factor features include a grand piano, prized artwork by Ralf Kempken and bespoke tiling from Paris, which adorns a wall in the master bedroom.
Incredibly arty Fitzroy rental

The master bedroom adjoins a luxurious bathroom, which houses a floral tiled steam room and shower – it’s hard to get a beauty treatment at the moment with businesses closed, so the new tenant can experience a touch of pampering at home.
The second bedroom is fitted with a built-in desk, which creates the perfect study nook for those working from home.
The kitchen comes with a stunning marble splashback and centre island along with two sinks for cooking up a storm.
Separate living areas are key during the health crisis, and the home’s theatre room/library is the perfect place to retreat to.
The location of this dream rental gets a big tick of approval. The covered balcony takes in views of leafy George Street below, while popular Gertrude, Brunswick and Smith streets are just around the corner for when shops, cafes and restaurants re-open.
There’s also a secure car space downstairs, which, in the heart of Fitzroy, is a rare commodity.
Weekly rent is $1,100 or $4780 per calendar month and the apartment is available now. You can book a private appointment to view the property, and apply with your 1form.
