Our home

It's a Victorian gem with high ceilings, Oregon pine floors and what they call here "broekie lace" balconies (it means panty lace!), a working woodburning marble fireplace in a double length sitting room with four sofas. There are movable electric oil-filled radiators.
There is a study and a good-sized kitchen plus a dining room (seats 8) downstairs. Up a flight there is a large bath room (bath), and a back bedroom with double bed and en-suite bathroom (bath). Up a half landing three bedrooms with double beds. The main has en-suite shower room plus balcony across front of house. Attic upstairs is carpeted but basically used as storage space.
There is a patio out back,accessed by french windows from kitchen. It has potted plants and a wrought iron dining table and chairs.
The house is reached from the street through a locked wrought iron gate with four steps to a small planted area and a verandah.
There is a security system and attractive wrought iron bars protecting doors and windows.
