About our home

Our house is a four bedroom home located in a quiet cul-de-sac of Nicholls which is a suburb of Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory. The
house which is constructed from brick veneer, was built in 1997. It has reverse cycle heating and cooling. The large lounge area has an adjoining dining area that will seat eight. There is a large ensuite adjoining the master bedroom, as well as a main bathroom. The kitchen was recently refurbished and has an electric wall oven, a gas cooktop, and a dishwasher. There is also a microwave and two refrigerators. A family area adjoins the kitchen. A separate laundry has a front loading washing machine. The gardens are easy care with no lawns.

Nicholls is a newer suburb of Canberra. It has a small local supermarket, hairdresser, restaurant and take-away. However, a little over a mile away, is the much larger Gungahlin shopping centre which services Nicholls and the surrounding suburbs. The centre has three supermarkets, numerous restaurants, cafes and banks, as well as medical and dental facilities, library and service stations. There are two golf courses nearby as well as two local aquatic centres. Canberra is the national capital and is home to the National Library, National Art Gallery, National Museum, Australian War Memorial, botanic gardens and numerous other important sites and buildings. It is also renown for its green open spaces and cycle paths. There is a small zoo and aquarium and the Tidbinbilla nature reserve, where kangaroos and occasionally a koala can be seen, is only a short drive outside the city.

Canberra is well placed for seeing Australia. Nicholls is about 180 miles from Sydney and around 410 miles from Melbourne. The snow fields of Perisher Valley are 130 miles away and the coast at Bateman's Bay is 92 miles distant. Distances are quickly and easily covered in Australia as there are effective motorways with mostly light traffic. My 1996 BMW 323i sedan can also be made available as part of a swap.
