Kentstow home swap

We are a retired couple, who travel widely, and love both the inner city life and the open countryside.

Our Melbourne house is a fully restored 1890's two-storey terrace, located 6k from the centre of Melbourne. It has antique furniture and original features throughout with an architect-designed extension at the rear. It has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and a side driveway.

The house is fully air-conditioned, apart from the ground floor front rooms which never seem to get hot. There is also gas-fired hydronic heating (radiators) throughout.

Close to public transport, it lies 5 minutes walk from Northcote High Street with its many restaurants and cafes, and 15 minutes walk from the linear parkland of the Merri Creek.

If you haven't been to Melbourne, the world's most liveable city, 7 years in a row, then you really should !

About the location

Melbourne has been described as the world's most liveable city, and it really is a wonderful place to live. We have lived here for 23 years and loved it. Our house is situated about 3 blocks from Northcote High Street and about the same distance from the Merri Creek which links with the Yarra River that winds leisurely to the city centre. With two tram lines and one train line you really don't need a car where we live and we tend to walk, cycle or catch public transport. Melbourne is generally flat.
The airport is only 30 mins away to the north and the beaches are about the same to the south and west.
