About our home

Our home is at the top of a sandstone hill overlooking the Bardwell Valley in Sydney, very close to bush walks along Wolli Creek as well as bike tracks along the Cooks River and to protected beaches like Brighton (perfect for small children). It is a short drive to surf beaches like Cronulla and Coogee. We are on two train lines both going to the city (one via the airport) in one direction, with one going to the Southern suburbs of Sydney and as far as the South Coast in the other direction. You can cook a fabulous meal in our new kitchen with Blanco appliances while enjoying the view over the valley. Sip late afternoon cocktails on the balcony while you watch the sun set over the valley or light up the BBQ in the garden downstairs. There are three lovely bedrooms upstairs, one for a child (a single bed with a rollaway underneath), the other two with a double bed and a queen size bed. The upstairs living room catches the afternoon light and warmth but has air-conditioning for the summer months. Downstairs is an enormous family room built into the sandstone that is lovely and cool in Summer. The main garden flows from this living room and also has views over the valley. There is a piano downstairs as well as the second bathroom/laundry. There are two TVs and the house has wireless internet and Apple TV. You can control the sound system anywhere in the house from your iphone or ipad.
