About our home

We are looking to swap our delightful 3 bedroom family-friendly home in Balmain. The house is full of character - homely, yet modern and bright. Three bedrooms (master with a king size bed, kids room and double bed guest room) plus study (with pull out bed). It is super convenient - three minutes walk to the bus stop and ten minutes to the Balmain ferry wharf (ten minutes to the Sydney CBD either way). We are four minutes walk to the local high street, with its quirky shops, fantastic cafes, restaurants and supermarket.

Balmain has a village vibe with its eclectic streetscapes, historic pubs and waterfront parks and pool. The area is safe, self contained on its harbourside peninsular, a joy to explore and perfect for families.


More about us

  1. We're a couple with a three year old daughter

  2. We are an engineer and ex-lawyer (the best type of lawyer!)

  3. We love travel but think we have the best place in the world to come home to
