Our home is a charming Australian Federation style home recently renovated; we have two main bedrooms with double beds, and a third sitting room with an occasional double bed/lounge. The master bed room has an ensuite; the main bathroom also acts as an ensuite for the second bedroom.
It is a very comfortable and easy care house to live in with a pleasant outdoor eating and BBQ area.
The Ryde area is very central to all areas of Sydney. We can walk to the ferry and rail station. It is only 25 minutes to the city by train, the city bus passes by the front door. Our preferred trip to the city is on the river ferry, a delightful relaxed 45 minutes journey down the Parramatta River.
We have boating, kayaking on the river, riverside walking and cycling tracks .
We have cycles available to use. We regularly cycle by the river to the nearby 2000 Olympic Games site where there is 40 km of cycling tracks, activities for kids, restaurants, pubs, exhibitions, major sporting events, concert and other activities.
This area is spoilt for choice of shopping with four major shopping complexes nearby with restaurants and cinemas as well, as our local shops.
We have a vehicle for reciprocal use, as well as camping equipment, cycles and a double kayak.not to mention our lovely neighbours.
We are an active semi-retired non smoking couple looking for an exchange in the Quebec area mid- May/June.
