About our home

Our home is a comfortable family home in a quiet street overlooking parkland. The north facing living area is bright and warm. It adjoins the dining area and state of the art kitchen which open onto the rear barbecue area. The master suite has a spacious bedroom, ensuite bathroom and walk-in-robe and study/sewing room. Our 2nd bedroom is used as a study and there are double/single bunks in the 3rd bedroom.
The garden is leafy and productive with plenty of places to enjoy the peace and quiet, birds and your favorite book or beverage. Our neighborhood is very quiet but close to all amenities and recreational facilities.
Canberra is cyclist heaven and you can join cycle paths and walking tracks out the front door. (Adult bikes available) There is a bus stop within walking distance to take you directly to the Canberra and Australian National Universities, shopping centres and the city centre. There are museums, art galleries and theatres to visit and keep you entertained. Canberra's art scene is rich with professional and community based music and theatre.
See the sights of the national capital, and use it as a base for south coast beaches, skiing in the Snowy Mountains or visiting Sydney.


More about us

  1. We're a quiet non-smoking couple living in our own home in Canberra, Australia's capital city.
    Semi-retired nurse/horticulturalist and university lecturer/IT programmer.

  2. The house comes with a mature cat that we would like looked after if possible.

  3. In 2019 we are looking for a live-like-a-local experience for 5+ months. Dates flexible. Spain, to learn the language and experience the culture and lifestyle, is our preferred location but we will happily consider other destinations.
