We have lived in our home for 39 years & love the area. Our house is a single story dwelling on a 1/4 acre block. We have a very large land scaped garden front & rear, that is easy maintenance. We have made our house very comfortable with large TV & surround sound system. A library of a hundred DVD film titles. Lots of local bird life some of which come in for a regular feed. We have a private rear garden, surounded by large tree's giving a very relaxing atmosphere. We have ducted evaporative air conditioning throughout, as well as reverse cycle heat / cool to most rooms.
We live in the South Western suburbs of Adelaide. Five minutes drive to Brighton Beach, Ten minutes to popular Glenelg. Within an hours drive to the Southern Vales is the McLaren Vale wine region, Victor Harbour, Second Valley, Cape Jervis & the ferry to Kangaroo Island. We have two mountain bikes with extensive bike tracks starting nearby.

Our biggest leisure activity these days is lawn bowls, also cycling, swimming, country drives, travel, Indonesia & cooking.
