Property features

Who we are

  1. Kenelm (37), company director.
    Cassandra (34), sonographer and now mother.
    Lysander (2), cute and energetic!
    Hereward (6 months), cute and hungry!

    You will benefit from the love and care Cassandra has taken in making our home.

    We both love experimenting with food and therefore enjoy the richness of cultural exchange. Cassandra is of Maltese/Hungarian extraction. My family came from England to Australia in the Third Fleet.

    Cassandra has introduced me to snow-skiing (something quite limited in sunny Australia). I introduced Cassandra to sailing, an activity you really must do in Sydney, preferably with an overflowing flute of champagne and Sydney seafood.

    We have never done a house swap but would love to try it with the right people. We have an excellent opportunity from July to August 2006, before I begin another 5 year stint opening another division of my business (hard work for which extended breaks are an impossibility!)

    We are an accessible, friendly, open-minded couple looking to make the most of life!

Our house is so conveniently located. The suburb of Artarmon is close to all arterial roads, railway and bus system. Taxis arrive within 10 minutes of calling.

You will enjoy Artarmon, part of Sydney's desirable Lower North Shore, an upper-middle class area chosen as home by many professional and business Sydneysiders.

You can even explore Sydney's lush harbour-based environment directly from our home, with a 2 hour bush walk through rainforest reserve to Middle Harbour ... a beautiful spot, usually hidden from all but locals who've lived in Sydney for years (a bonus for international travellers you'll never see in any guidebook!)

This is all at our doorstep for you to share.

Quaint, village-like shops within 8 minutes walk of home. One of Sydney six major restaurant precincts is Crows Nest, the neighbouring suburb in which you can taste cuisine from any part of the world! Truly marvellous and only 3-5 minutes drive away.

Also enjoy our Australian Asian Fusion cuisine for an authentic experience!
