About our home

(1) LOOKING FOR NZ for CHRISTMAS 2017 - (2) SYDNEY AVAILABLE 24 APRIL to 7 May 2017 for up to 2 weeks on POINTS or NON SIMULTANEOUS SWAP
Bright, ducted air-conditioned home with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, 30 minutes from the Sydney CBD with excellent transport links.
Situated in Lugarno, a leafy tranquil suburb on the Georges River, we are within close walking distance of our shopping village and public transport. There are 7 separate 30 minute park/river walks within 5 mins and Hurstville Golf Course is 2 kms away.
Lugarno is situated on a promontory jutting into the Georges River which flows into Botany Bay. Our house is on a stunning cliff top in a seven house cul de sac. The area abounds with tall gum trees and beautiful native bird calls in the morning and evening.

We are open to swaps for spring/fall 2017 (these being great times to visit Sydney)
and up to 2 weeks on points or non sim from 24 April 2017 - non smokers please.


TOP LEVEL - 3 bedrooms, main bathroom and office/ironing room
Good optic fibre broadband WiFi connection and VOIP free phone to most countries incl UK and USA - Jacuzzi and underfloor heating in bathroom - Apple TV in main bedroom

MIDDLE LEVEL - kitchen, living area, dining, laundry, second bathroom, balcony and garage
All electric kitchen - Large fridge/freezer, 2 ovens, microwave, glass hotplate, d/washer, top load washer, sensing dryer, N'espresso machine, gas barbecue and outdoor gas heater on balcony.

LOWER LEVEL - TV room & wet bar, guest bedroom, bathroom and garden patio/BBQ - separate air conditioning
Bar fridge, wine cellar, 55" TV + DVD player, Apple TV, recliner chairs, rowing and exercise machines, gas BBQ and dining setting on patio - zero care garden - automated watering system.

Lugarno is 30 mins by car to the CBD and 20 minutes from the International Airport.
Our local village has all the vital retail requirements - supermarket, newsagent, pharmacy, butcher, greengrocer, ATM, Medical Centre, liquor store, bakery, hairdresser, beauty salons and 2 Italian restaurants and alfresco cafes.

Within a 10- 15 minute drive there are 4 major shopping centres.
As can be seen from the map, we are well placed for all of the southern ocean and river beaches.
Sydney weather in spring/fall is usually a balmy 22 - 27C during these 3 month periods

We are 30 minutes by car to the Sydney CBD or a 35 minute train trip.
Bus transport is a 2 minute walk away in the next street, connecting to Riverwood Railway Station, 10 minutes away. Travel cards provided for seniors (buses/ferries and trains) - max out at $2.50 per day
There is a fully optioned Mazda 6 (28,000 kms) available, subject to full comprehensive insurance approval - Local transport is excellent with very good frequency but it is always nice to have the flexibility of your own transport as there is much to see.

We are situated on a cliff top and for this reason, it might be a little risky for younger children.
