Our home

My home is a character historic home in a very desirable historic suburb 2 blocks from Sydney Harbour and 15mins by bus from the centre of Sydney. The home has stained glass windows, tiled fireplaces and polished floors and is elegantly furnished with Oriental artifacts and Persian carpets. There are 2 bedrooms, (one king & one queen)lounge, office, kitchen with separate dining, laundry and one bathroom. Outdoors is a charming leafy courtyard for year round dining. Particularly suitable for a couple who enjoy to relax in quiet elegant surrounds, yet want to be close to some action on occasions. Possible car exchange considered.
