Where we want to go
Description of our house
Set in leafy South Yarra, just 15 minutes from the centre of Melbourne, our home was originally built in the 1930s and is a very solid brick two story townhouse. In the upstairs area there are two bedrooms, a bathroom and separate toilet. One bedroom has a queen size bed and the other has a single bed with a trundle underneath that pops up to make another single bed. The bathroom has been recently renovated. Downstairs has an entry area, a large lounge room and large TV. In the separate dining room there is seating for 6-8 people. The kitchen has plenty of bench space, a new Smeg oven, stove and range hood. We are just in the process of finishing the refurbishment of the kitchen, with painting of woodwork to be completed.

Our home is literally just south of the Yarra River. A 30 second walk down the adjoining stairs and you are at the River. There are walking and cycling tracks along the river. Our neighboring properties are of a similar age (1920/30s) and the quiet cul-de-sac is a unique area of South Yarra.
Something about ourselves
My husband and I have been together for 20 years and are now both in our 50s. We do not have children. We do have a Cairn Terrier and a West Highland Terrier. I was a teacher for 10 years and I now work in HR/OD in Government. My husband has a property maintenance business. We live in Melbourne (South Yarra) and love spending time at our beach house on the Mornington Peninsula on weekends with our friends and family. We are looking for opportunities to exchange time at our South Yarra home for overseas locations. In particular we are looking to visit Italy in September 2013. As part of this trip we would like to spend up to a week in different locations such as the Amalfi Coast, Sicily, Umbria, Liguria. We are happy to do non-sequential times to assist with matching your needs and also to provide you with support while you visit. We can also offer time at our home in Sorrento/Blairgowrie, as part of your visit.
