About our home
Our charming little cottage in Rozelle has two bedrooms, an open plan living and dining room, and a renovated bathroom. It also has a paved, leafy courtyard and BBQ, perfect for mid summer evening prawns on the barbie! (From the famous Sydney fish markets five minutes away)! We are a six minute bus ride from the city centre (numerous buses run along one of the city's major bus routes from the end of our street), and a ten minute walk to the Glebe/Ironcove/Balmain foreshores of Sydney Harbour. Bondi beach is 20 minutes drive away - our car (with one babyseat) can be part of the swap.
Our suburb Rozelle is a historic, low-rise inner city suburb, very friendly and safe, consisting mostly of small worker's cottages, parks, and many small shops and cafes. We have the best bakery in Sydney at the top of our street, and half a dozen cafes within a short walk.
Equipped for kids
