Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

This is a very comfortable modest home set in bush land on the scenic Central Coast of NSW. It is a 2 storey house with the family home upstairs and a totally separate small flat downstairs. The home has 2 double bedrooms for guests and the 3rd bedroom which is used as a computer room The open living area has a double sofa bed. It has a cosy wood fire for winter time. There is also an outside/ inside room with screened walls so you can enjoy a BBQ in the great outdoors without being bothered by insects. From here you can watch the antics of the resident possums at night and the busy brush turkeys and other birds by day. I have a totally separate downstairs 1 bedroom flat. If I am doing a simultaneous exchange this could be used by a teenager or adult. However if I am doing a non-simultaneous exchange I'll probably be using it myself.
I would LOVE to spend some time in the UK or anywhere in Europe especially during July and Aug holidays as my daughter's family live in Bath.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

The Central Coast of NSW is a very popular area for beach holidays, restful weekends near the sea and bush and day trips from Sydney. It is about 1 1/2 hours drive or train trip north of Sydney. The house is on the edge of the suburban area of a small town. It is a picturesque area with many activities from swimming, surfing, scuba diving, boating, bush walking and fishing to relaxing by the sea, perhaps spotting whales or dolphins in the right season. There are various tourist outings such as The Australian Reptile Park, a ferry trip to Palm Beach (the location for filming Home and Away) and visiting the beautiful Hawkesbury River. While within easy distance for day trips to the large city of Sydney it is a small and peaceful local community. The climate is suitable for a holiday at any time of the year although winter would be a cool time for swimming without wetsuits.
