= marks the location of this home
Centennial Parklands, 200 metres away, is great for cycling, horse riding, picnicking or a very pleasant walk. http://www.centennialparklands.com.au Our friendly neighbourhood of North Randwick is very centrally located. It is close to a variety of restaurants, famous beaches (Bondi, Bronte, Clovelly etc) and Royal Randwick Racecourse is a 10 minute walk away. Bondi Junction and Randwick shopping centres are also close by. The city centre (Sydney) is a 15 minute bus ride and Fox Studios Entertainment Quarter (a great growers market) is close by. There is little need for a car as everything can be reached by public transport.
Something about ourselves
We are a semi retired couple, a driver trainer and special education teacher. Bill is originally from London. We usually travel back to the UK about every 5 years. During our last trip we enjoyed minding a house in Islington, so have decided to house swap, we can provide references if necessary. We have lived in this house for 25 years and love the area as it is so quiet, peaceful and yet so handy to everything. We would be looking at an exchange term of about 3 weeks, preferably SSW London to the orbital M23. We would prefer a house swap in either July or October 2010.
