SYDNEY UPPER NORTH SHORE - BACKING ONTO NATIONAL PARK FOREST home swap
A YEAR IN SYDNEY!! Our home is a quiet retreat backing onto national park woodland on the beautiful northern outskirts of Sydney. It is a very private three bedroom bungalow built over a large open entertaining area, gym and workshop next to a solar-heated outdoor swimming pool. The huge sunny balcony leads off the family/TV room with views into the treetops and glimpses of the national parks extending for around 200 km to the north. Hand-feed our wild King Parrots and the resident family of Kookaburras (see picture)! There is also a small lounge for a quiet read away from distractions. One small lady pussy cat will require feeding but not much else.
A small four-door hatchback is available for town driving.
An ideal base for grandparents visiting family or just a relaxing extended holiday in the Sydney area. We are interested in exchanging to SOUTH EAST ENGLAND ONLY, FOR A YEAR FROM JULY 2016, dates flexible. We have many friends and relations to visit in west London, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Surrey and West Sussex.
About the location
A safe leafy suburb on the edge of the bush but only 5 minutes drive from major shopping and entertainment facilities and the main line station, 40 minutes to the harbour and city. This is multi-cultural Australia so there is a huge range of dining options locally. Hornsby has an outdoor restaurant strip to cater for most tastes and excellent restaurants are available locally as well. There are lots of cafés in Hornsby or try the up-market suburb of Wahroonga a short drive away.
The entrances to good freeways are within a few minutes drive going south to Canberra & Victoria and north to the coast, the wine growing areas of the Hunter Valley and Queensland.
