About our home

Attractive, bright, ducted air-conditioned home 4 bedroom/3 bathrooms, 30 minutes from Sydney CBD with excellent transport links - car available. LOOKING FOR 6-7 WEEKS IN LONDON DECEMBER 2017 TO JANUARY 2018 (dates flexible).

Situated in Lugarno, a leafy tranquil promontory jutting into the Georges River, we are within close walking distance of our shopping village and public transport with quick connections to the city.
Our house is on a stunning cliff top in a seven house cul-de-sac. The area abounds with tall gum trees and beautiful native birds serenade us in the morning and evening.
There are 7 separate 30 minute park/river walks within 5 minutes and a public golf course close by.
We are open to swaps late 2017 into January - Sydney in spring is usually a balmy 22-27C and summer is perfect beach weather.
Non-smokers please. Open to new locations also.


TOP LEVEL - 3 bedrooms (1 king,2 queen), main bathroom and office/ironing room.
Optic fibre broadband Wi-Fi connection and VOIP free phone to 20 countries including UK and USA - Jacuzzi and underfloor heating in bathroom - Apple TV in main bedroom.

MIDDLE LEVEL - kitchen, living area, dining, laundry, second bathroom, balcony and garage.
All electric kitchen - large fridge/freezer, double oven, microwave, glass hotplate, dishwasher, washing machine, sensing dryer, Nespresso coffee machine.
Gas BBQ and outdoor gas heater on balcony.

LOWER LEVEL - TV room and wet bar, single guest bedroom, bathroom and garden patio - separate air conditioning.
Bar fridge, wine cellar, 55" TV + DVD player, Apple TV, Netflix, rowing and exercise machines, gas BBQ and dining setting on patio - zero care garden - automated watering system.

Lugarno is 30 minutes from the CBD and 20 minutes from Sydney International Airport.
Our local village has all the vital retail requirements - supermarket, newsagent, pharmacy, butcher, greengrocer, ATM, medical centre, liquor store, bakery, hairdresser, beauty salons and two Italian restaurants and alfresco cafes.

Within 10-15 minute drive there are 4 major shopping centres.
As the map shows, we are well placed for all the southern-ocean and river beaches.

Bus transport is a 2 minute walk, connecting to Riverwood Railway Station, 10 minutes away.
Travel cards available for seniors (buses, ferries and trains) - max out at A$2.50 per day.
There is a fully optioned Mazda 6 automatic (28,000 km) available, (negotiable with swap) subject to full comprehensive approval from NRMA (our insurers). Local transport is excellent with very good frequency but it is a great advantage to have your own transport in Sydney as there is much to see.
