Our home is situated in the cosmopolitan, cafe filled area of inner west Sydney called Balmain. Balmain is situated on a peninsular surrounded by Sydney Harbour. 10 mins from the Sydney CBD by car and bus, 20 mins by Ferry. Balmain is a very social suburb, with an endless variety of cafes, restaurants, book store and shops. There are numerous tree filled parks and historical walks in the area. Balmain is known as "a beautiful village within the city". Balmain's central inner Sydney location means that within 20 minutes you can be swimming at Sydney's white sandy beaches or sitting watching a concert at Sydney's famous Opera House.
