About our House: Our house is situated in a leafy, quiet neighbourhood, close to the city and public transport (bus, tram and freeway). By car, it takes approximately 15 min to get into the city.
We have lived at our current address for over 30 years. It has been the family home, but now all our children have grown up and moved on. There are 1 queensized bedroom a twin room and one single bed in the 3rd bedroom. The fourth bedroom has now been turned into a study, which houses the computer - and has broadband internet.
The other rooms include a family room with TV, video and DVD player, a large lounge/dinning room for entertaining guests, modern kitchen with gas facilities, separate laundry and two bathrooms.
We pride ourselves on our garden and out the back, we have built an entertainment area where we can enjoy having guests and friends over. It's like the home away from home.
North Balwyn is close to the "trendy" Brunswick street (Fitzroy), "Italian" Lygon Street (Carlton) and "Vietnamese" Victoria Street (Collingwood). There are great areas to explore and also offer an array of interesting restaurants and bars.
