= marks the location of this home
Balmain is a 10 minute trip from the centre of Sydney, and easily reached by bus or ferry. It is a lovely suburb, one of the oldest in Sydney, with many original sandstone buildings and hardly any highrise. It is on a peninsualr in the harbour, has many parks and offers great views of the city. It has a villagey feel, with very friendly people, some great shops and markets and many excellent cafes and restaurants.
Something about ourselves
I'm a lawyer and work at a financial services company in the city. I love travelling and get away whenever I can. I'm keen to do some travelling where I go somewhere and stay in one place for a while and really get into the local lifestyle.
