We would love you to come enjoy our large modern family home whilst exploring the vibrant city of Melbourne, Australia.
Our house is only 2 years old and features 6 bedrooms, 2 living areas, a large play room, garage, swimming pool and extensive entertaining area and outdoor play area for the children. We would be happy for two families to take advantage of our large home – if you wish to travel with friends.
The highlight of our house (and not common in Melbourne) is its spaciousness, large back yard and pool and entertaining area - all located only 6km from the centre on Melbourne.
We have 5 children and love to entertain – so our house is both an adults and child’s paradise. The house has a pool – with a shallow end for smaller children, and entertaining dining area that seats up to 14 people. We have a warm outdoor shower for a quick freshen up after your swim and a BBQ area and outside drinks fridge. Both young and older children will never be bored with a cubby house, sandpit, in-ground trampoline and sports turf area (cricket, netball & basketball), and lots of pool playthings. The house has a huge play room packed full of toys and games. We also have a table tennis table, bikes, scooters and lots of balls and bats and everything sporty you could imagine.
The house is conveniently located and accessible to Melbourne’s attractions. We are in the suburb of Northcote, which is approx. 6km from the Melbourne CBD. We are located 5 mins walk from the train station (Dennis) and have buses within metres of our house to take you to a local shopping mall, into the city or to the High St to join up with the tram line. We are part way between Station Street Fairfield, and Northcote High Street – 2 local community shopping strips, and only a short drive from the vibrant Brunswick Street. We have a small local park within 2 minutes walk, and larger Parklands very close. We are also walking distance from the Fairfield Boat house and Merri Creek.
We have air-conditioning and ducted heating throughout the house. Our house is also highly eco-friendly, with a 25,000 litre water tank and state of the art solar power system, vegie garden and compost bin (if you wish to use).
We do have some fish, which it would be great if you could feed while we are away. We have an 8 seater car that could be available on negotiation (subject to insurance)
