About our home

We live in the village of Glebe in Sydney's inner west. We have a great village shopping strip 50 steps from our front door and can even smell the bread baking from our local baker in the wee hours of the morning......mmmm. We have on our doorstep - 4 bakeries, 2 cafes - with amazing coffeeeeeee, a butcher, 1 supermarket, newsagent, sushi and a pet store, as well as takeaway shops and a local pub.
At the top of our street, 50 steps, you can catch buses to all the main tourists attractions and the local bus into the city (Sydney harbour and Opera house) will only take 10 mins. There are buses that take you to all the famous beaches on the doorstep, Bondi by bus takes about 30 minutes.
Everything is on your doorstep!
