Acerca de nuestra casa

The house is a very relaxed and friendly family home with a pleasant courtyard garden, a large old bungalow built in about 1920, with polished floors, antique rugs, many artworks (many from India where I grew up, or the work of Merrie, who is an artist). The house was recently repainted and renovated, and has a sunny glassed-in front verandah and deck overlooking the beach, two very large bedrooms (one with a queen size bed, and one with a large bunkbead for our two girls), another spare bedroom with a loft bed, and a nice marble bathroom with a spa-bath and separate shower. The living space, comprising sitting room, dining and kitchen is very large, and opens onto the back garden and a patio. At the back there is an attached cottage which has another bedroom/study with a double loft bed, Merrie's studio plus a second bathroom. There is also a single garage at the back. Every room has a modern gas heater, and in summer we use overhead fans (the ceilings are very high, so it is rare we feel the heat here). The back garden opens onto the kitchen and has a pleasant and private aspect, with a patio with a barbeque (used frequently in summer). It has a resident chicken in a coop (very old and happy, but no longer laying unfortunately!) and a very friendly (and child friendly) cat. We also have a small holiday house on one hour's drive south on the coast at Carrickalinga which could be available too.

Más sobre nosotros

  1. We are myself, Rob, an academic, and Merrie, an artist and yoga teacher (both in our early fifties), with one grown up son and two girls (10 and 11). We travel quite a bit, sometimes work related but more often than not for pleasure, even if only to Bali to stay with friends. We are very fortunate, living where we live, and being able to enjoy this wonderful life here. We have never swapped houses before but thought we would try it, since we find hotels expensive and not always the best way of seeing other parts of the world.

Ubicación

Barrio/zona

We live overlooking one of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in Australia at Grange, South Australia, the closest beachside suburb to the city of Adelaide. Grange is a friendly, and relaxed place, renown as a good safe family beach, with gentle waves and great swimming - we see dolphins and pelicans on many days on the beach. The house is near an old jetty which is said to be good for fishing, and close to some good restaurants, great walks and bicycle paths. An international airport is only fifteen minutes from the house, and a short walk takes you to our local train station from where you can get to the city in about 20 minutes (or you can cycle in to town along the river). Adelaide is one of the most liveable cities in Australia and one of the most affordable, with a lively arts and cultural scene, the best wine growing in the country, golf courses galore, fantastic wildlife (quite a bit close by), and within a short drive of some great and interesting countryside, including the Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island (about 2 1/2 hours drive plus a short ferry ride). Amazingly tourists here are very rare!
