About our home

Our beautiful home is a semi detached house in Five Dock, the heart of Sydney’s ‘little Italy’ area, so great food is everywhere! A short stroll across the park brings you to your local pasticerria, deli, supermarket, banks, post office, cafes, restaurants, hairdressers and much more. Cinemas, bookstores and a plethora of restaurants are only a 5- 10 min bus ride away.

We are only 8 kms to the centre of Sydney. Direct buses run regularly to the city, The bus stop is only 50 mtrs away .

Bedding: 1 QS, 1 Double, 2 singles
Our main bedroom has a QS bed with a top of the range, no-allergy latex mattress. The 2nd bedroom has a single bed, also with latex mattress. The 3rd bedroom is currently an office, but has a single futon bed if required. The office is equipped with laser printer, huge desk and peaceful view to the park opposite. WiFi is throughout the house and garden. The loungeroom has a 3 seater sofa bed suitable for another two people.

Our kitchen is equipped with a Smeg gas stove with fan forced electric oven, dishwasher, juicer and microwave. Our main bathroom has a toilet, a deep bath with shower screen and instant gas hot water, so you’ll never run out. Our 2nd bathroom has a WC and a brand new Bosch front loader washing machine. Polished floor boards are throughout each bedroom and hallway.

The tiled lounge/dining room has a magnificent, new, open wood burner fireplace, an extensive library of books & DVDs, flat screen TV, DVD/Blu Ray player, Bose IPod docking station and massage chair.

Our sandstone paved courtyard gathers sun all day. But if you feel like walking, opposite our home is a huge park, or 5 mins walk away is the famous Bay Walk, a 7km walk around water ways and historic parklands. You are spoilt for choice.

Our car is also available for swap.

This is a non-smoking home, both inside and out. As such, we request only non-smokers apply.

We are interested in a home swap in the Oxfordshire area, any town within easy reach of Oxford. A car swap would be preferable.
