Our home

Our house is a character house with two storeys built in the 1950ties, modernised and extended over the years, in a prestigious part of Surrey.
We have four bedrooms but since our children have left home we have turned two into his and hers offices. However, mine (hers), has a futon which can be used for occasional use. The main bedroom has a queen sized bed and the second bedroom has a double bed, both with built-in cupboards.There is also a single settee downstairs in the family room for occasional use.
There is one bathroom upstairs and one shower room downstairs. The kitchen is modern and has a breakfast bar. The lounge 22ft by 13ft has a large flat screen TV and doors onto the patio. There is a separate dining room and a large family room with a piano which leads onto the patio which runs along the length of the house at the rear where we have garden furniture and a barbecue in the summer months.

Who we are

  1. My husband and I are both retired. I was a GP locally for many years and my husband is an accountant. I am Australian but have lived in England since 1966. My husband is Scottish.
    Our married daughter lives in Sydney so we wish to visit from time to time.
    We are flexible with our accommodation as long as there are two bedrooms and bathrooms but it must be in Sydney preferably in The Eastern Suburbs or on the North Shore but all areas considered if within reasonable distance of the city and public transport.

Our house in on the border of the famous Wentworth Golf course, where we have been members for many years, in one of the most prestigious areas of Surrey. We are within walking distance of Windsor Great park within which lie The Royal Landscape, Savill Garden and Virginia Water Lake so this is a walker's and gardener's paradise.
The RHS gardens at Wisley are a half hour's drive. away. We have two major theme parks nearby -Legoland in Windsor and Thorpe Park near Staines.
We are only 45 minutes from London by train. The train station is 3/4 mile away, as is Virginia Water shopping centre. We are about 8 miles from Windsor which is a great tourist and shopping area. Ascot race course is only a few miles away too. Windsor Great park stretches from Virginia Water to Windsor. There are picnic grounds on the river Thames on the way to Windsor at historical Runnymede.
We have access to the M25 ring motorway, 3 miles away in Egham, so all areas of London are easily accessible. Our car pictured in front of the house is a blue 5 year old Mercedes Kompressor.
This is in the London commuter stockbroker belt and we frequently travel to London either by train or car to visit the theatre or galleries. There are also local theatres in Windsor and Woking.
We are spoilt for choice with great restaurants ,of various nationalities' cuisine, in the area, as well as all London has to offer.
