Our home

Our home is comfortable, clean, and spacious. It has a large kitchen with adjoining dining room. The best room of the house is our Garden Room which has windows at all aspects and overlooks the gardens with a view of the mountains. The Garden Room also has a wood burning stove which makes it a really cosy room to enjoy day and night. In addition to this room we have a lounge and playroom. Our garden has many shrubs,flowers and a vegetable patch. We have a large driveway and our house is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are Katie and Paul. (Paul is an actuary and Katie works part-time selling fantastic rooms in historical castles). We are in our 30's with two children under school age.

    We are a close family and love to spend quality time together. Walking to the nearby town to feed the ducks and enjoy lunch in one of the many cafes is a favourite pastime.

    We are considering emmigrating to Melbourne and therefore hope to go to check things out in the latter part of this year. We thought that by doing a part exchange in Melbourne, close to the CBD, we would get more of a feel of "real life.
