About our home

A modern twist on a heritage house which I renovated in 2016 to open up the living areas to be a light filled, modern split level home. The state of the art kitchen connects to a spacious dining room , leading to a cosy living room opening onto a sun filtered courtyard. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, it accommodates six people comfortably. It's a great location close to everything Sydney has to offer - Sydney Harbour, Barangaroo, Darling Harbour are all easily reached by train, bus, light rail or ferry. Just a 20 minute Uber ride to the international airport, you will touch down in no time.

More about us

  1. I've lived in this home for 12 years and enjoy a pretty culture-based life living in the inner west. Visiting galleries and going to the theatre are two of my favourite pastimes.

  2. I run my own business which is just a few streets from home and I get to take my dog Pablo, a 12 year old Cavoodle (cavalier x poodle) to work! It's an art school - Art Est. Art School - which I established 11 years ago and absolutely love. Still looking for my work - life balance though!

  3. I enjoy having friends over to my home which is relaxed, stylish and very comfortable and a great place to entertain. I love it here and hope you will too. I have a trip to Hawaii booked for 8-15 December 2018 and would ideally love a direct swap but am open to offers from anywhere in the world for 2019 and beyond. As the home has two guest bedrooms, I'm flexible on timing and when guests come to stay whether I am there or not.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Located in the heart of the Inner West, Leichhardt is known as Little Italy and is an immersion of arts and culture. All roads lead to Leichhardt and it's a great base for a holiday to explore Sydney and surrounds. My home is just 7km to Sydney CBD, 3 minutes to the closest bus stop, 10 minutes to Lewisham City Rail Station or Taverner's Light Rail Station.

My street is in a tree-lined residential neighbourhood and a short walk to cafes, shops and transport so you get the best of a local experience while being close to the city centre.

Cultural experiences include art classes and workshops for kids and adults at Art Est Art School - great for anyone keen to explore their artistic side. With painting, drawing and pottery classes and loads of school holiday workshop too, its the best place to do art in Sydney. (I'm a little biased as it's my business, but ask around, others will say the same!!). If you prefer a cinematic escape, the Palace Cinema on Norton Street is the best art house cinema around with a great bar and choc-tops to die for. Nothing better than watching the latest release or film festival favourite with a glass of Pinot Gris and a cheese plate!

Buzzy restaurants
Little Sicily is an authentic local Italian restaurant, or if you like Thai or Japanese food, there are great options on Norton Street. Haberfield, the neighbouring suburb, also has fantastic dining options and Marrickville and Enmore are where you'll find small bars like HartsYard and new boutique breweries.
Cool bars
Walk to Aperitivo, Creek and Cella and The Royal Botanical (the best pub in Leichhardt).
Cozy cafés
My local favourites are The Carpenter Cafe and WellCo. But if you love morning coffee you're in the right place with so many great cafe's with fabulous Baristas to kick start your day with flat white, macchiato, or chai latte!
Retail therapy
Centrally located in Albert Street, you can walk 10 minutes to Norton Plaza to the east or Market Place to the west, for all your groceries and general needs. Birkenhead Point is a Designer Factory Outlet just 10 minutes away by cab or Uber. Take a 20 minute train ride to Sydney CBD where you'll find all the department stores.
Bit of culture
Leichhardt is in the hub of the inner west, an artsy cultural district of Sydney with loads of artist spaces, galleries and hidden gems. Orange Grove Markets are our local Saturday produce market, or youcan pop over to Addison Road Community Markets on Sundays where you'll also find Reverse Garbage full of creative, recycled trash and treasure.
Walks in the park
Take a 10 minute walk to historic Petersham Park where you'll find Cricket in Summer and Baseball games in winter. The local Fanny Durack Pool is fabulous for families to cool down in Summer, close to the Bay Run, Glebe Foreshore.
Spot of exercise
Take a run along the Bay Run, local gyms are just a walk away, or cycle along the Rozelle Bay to Cooks River GreenWay. If you like to swim, you can do laps at the Fanny Durack Pool or Leichhardt Aquatic Centre. Dawn Fraser Baths in Balmain, named after our Olympic champion and 'national treasure', are a short 10 minute Uber ride away. You can also jump on the train and in 20 minutes you'll be at Sydney Olympic Park, home to Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, and where the public can swim in the Olympic Pool, work out in the gym, or watch various sporting events.
Day tripping
A short walk to Lewisham Station will be the start of your journey to the Majestic Blue Mountains or catch the train to the city where you can jump on a ferry at Circular Quay and cross Sydney Harbour to the famous Manly Beach. Buses from Central Station head to the Eastern Suburbs where you can spend the day at the iconic Bondi Beach which is also the starting point for the Bondi to Bronte Walk which captures the Annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition in October.
