Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Centrally located, very comfortable Federation style home, with two separate living areas, a large kitchen and dining room, and a big back deck overlooking established gardens. The original front section of the house was built in 1895 and has high ceilings, fireplaces and kauri pine floors. There are five bedrooms, with three of them available for your use. The main bedroom upstairs has a king-size bed and an adjoining bathroom. There are two other bedrooms downstairs, one with a queen size bed, and the other with a double bed. There is a separate bathroom downstairs, and a third toilet off the laundry next to the back deck. Of the two unavailable rooms, one downstairs is used as an office, and the other upstairs is used as an art room.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

From our house it is a stone's throw to the many cafes and shops in cosmopolitan Beaumont Street. There are lots of lovely places within walking distance: Gregson Park, Islington Park, Throsby Waters and Newcastle Harbour. Beautiful local beaches - Merewether, Bar, Newcastle and Nobby's beaches - are less than 10 minutes by car.
It is half an hour's drive to Lake Macquarie to the south, or Port Stephens to the north; less than an hour westwards to the Hunter Valley Vineyards; and an easy two-hour drive south to Sydney.
There is also easy access to public transport: it is a five-minute walk to trains and buses. Sydney trains run every hour.
It is a half-hour drive to Newcastle Airport. Daily direct flights to Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide are available from Newcastle Airport.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We will treat your home with the same care as if it were our own, and would want that to be reciprocated. Please, no smoking. There are gardens at the front and back of the house and along the driveway, which I would love you to water when needed; but that is easy as we have bore water which comes on with the flick of a switch. All you need to do is move the hoses around periodically. Our regular gardener will come and mow the lawns and trim the hedges as needed. Thanking you in anticipation for your care and respect for our home.
