Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We already have our exchanges organised for 2019 and are now looking for swaps in 2020 and 2021.

Our home is a very clean, light, spacious and comfortable two-storey house set on two acres of land. The house is situated on top of a hill with lovely views of the surrounding mountains. The kitchen and outdoor entertaining area overlook a tropical garden of bromeliads and palms. All the living area is downstairs whilst the four bedrooms, an ensuite, and one bathroom are on the second level.

The downstairs area is very spacious with a lounge/dining room, kitchen and dining area, laundry, shower room, study, a T.V./lounge room, and a games room with a table-tennis table set up ready for a game. The light and airy games room also has a juke box and computer table.

If you love birds then you will enjoy the kookaburras, butcher-birds, magpies, galahs, cockatoos, corellas, and various lorikeets which fly in regularly to be either hand fed or eat from the feeders.

The small village of Samford is in a rural area set in the hills about 25kms outside Brisbane and contains a mix of historical buildings, restaurants, trendy cafes, shops, services and a local pub for casual dining. It is popular at weekends with tourists coming for a drive from Brisbane city.

Some of the local sports available in the district include swimming, horse riding, golf, tennis, table-tennis and lawn bowls. Situated just at the end of our street is a park with a children's playground and barbeque area, which is a lovely place to have a picnic or to wander by the little creek.

Samford is a one hour drive to Queensland's finest beaches and tourist attractions e.g. Australia Zoo, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast, and only 15 minutes to scenic rainforest walks and waterfalls.

Brisbane City is an easy 30 minute drive by car and 10 minute drive to the nearest railway station.
