3 level town house with 2 off street car parks home swap

We live in a peaceful inner city suburb of Melbourne with river parklands and good public transport nearby. Our home is a three level townhouse in a cul-de-sac. The ground level has a living/dining area, separate kitchen, laundry and powder room. There are two bedrooms on the 1st floor both with queen size beds, a renovated bathroom with walk-in shower and a second powder room. On the top level there is a second living area that we use as an office and reading/ TV room. There is heating and cooling on all levels. The courtyard includes outside table, seating 6-8, under a wisteria clad pergola and a gas BBQ. There are shady places to be in summer and sunny places to sit in winter. We also have 2 undercover, on-site car parks on our property.

About the location

Our suburb, Hawthorn is approximately 4 kilometres from Melbourne's city centre with a choice of public transport - 2 tram lines (2 minute walk) and the train station (a 10 minute walk). We sometimes take the 109 tram through the city to Port Melbourne pier and beach. The train also makes the Dandenong Ranges easily accessible. These are also easily reached by car. River walks and cycling paths are a 5 minute walk.
Shops and cafes - at the end of our street, on Church Street, we use the coffee shops, post office, organic grocer, chemist etc. Victoria Gardens shopping complex (supermarket, green grocer, bakery, more cafes, movie theatres etc) is a 10 minute walk. Approximately 2 kms away there are many more shops, restaurants, cafes, libraries and gyms (with swimming pools) in Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn and the nearby suburbs of Bridge Road, Richmond and High Street Kew. We also shop at the Queen Victoria market, accessible by public transport or car.

Melbourne has approximately 2,000 kilometres of bike tracks and we have two bikes with helmets for your use. There is also a full set of right handed golf clubs and many golf courses to choose from. Whether you like to walk, cycle, drive, tram or train it is all very easy from our home.
