About our home

Our period timber home is a charming and peaceful haven, and perfect for a couple. Gorgeous natural light and comfortable furnishings make it a wonderful relaxing retreat. Air-conditioning over 2 levels, and gas heating leaves it cool in summer and cosy in winter.
The kitchen is fully equiped with all you require to make a feast, and both kitchen and laundry appliances are of good quality.
There is a bath with overhead shower and toilet upstairs, and a laundry/toilet downstairs.
Three bedrooms upstairs, one with a king-size memory foam bed, the other currently used as a second office with a single bed, the 3rd a private and comfortable attic room with 1 Queen sized bed. Comfort is important to us, so our furnishings and linens are of fine quality.
Both the house and the garden are compact and very easy to maintain. The garden is fitted with a watering system that recycles bath and shower water. Two bicycles are available for use.

Our home has a wonderful location in bayside Albert Park. It is 5 minutes walk to a great swimming beach and across the road from a dog-friendly park. It is 250 m from the tram into central Melbourne - a 20 minute ride. (Or 20 minutes on the bikes) There you will find shops, museums, theatres, clubs, concert hall - whatever you fancy. Trams also take you to cosmopolitan St Kilda, which is a 30-40 minute walk along the beach. There are numerous flat, easy-riding bike trails, and plenty of parks including Albert Park Lake: home to the Grand Prix in March.
Albert Park has some of Melbourne's finest examples of Victorian architecture, so walking through the quiet, tree-lined streets is a pleasure.
Melbourne is known for great food, and there are plenty of local restaurants, cafes and shopping. Wonderful fresh produce can be found at South Melbourne Market, and a terrific farmers market happens once a month in the park opposite.

Our car is an automatic 2004 Citroen C5 station wagon. Very comfortable and reliable. We are open to exchanging cars also.

Dan works in IT, and Anne is a visual artist.
