About Me
We are travelling again on long service leave and looking to welcome new Sabbatical Home guests in 2019 to our lovely Balmain home in the second half of 2019 to January 2020. We first joined Sabbatical Homes on advice of friends who are academics. We feel comfortable using Sabbatical Homes because we trust that academics share and understand our ethics as professionals. We have successfully rented our house twice through Sabbatical Homes and are pleased to offer it again. While we are not academics, our neighbour gained her PhD from University of Sydney in 2019 and rode her bicycle to the university. Our other neighbour is a recently retired astrophysicist and our relatives are academics. We were pleased to welcome two Sabbatical Home guests to our home in 2014, an American radiologist from Boston MA and family who knew Balmain and was looking for a permanent Sydney home in this area; and, a senior partner in a respected Australian law firm who had sold the family suburban home to move closer to the CBD. They were so pleased with the location they bought their new home in the next street! I am a self-employed Registered Architect who works in Balmain with a firm of heritage architects. My wife is an Australian Lawyer on long service leave and we are planning to travel around Australia and then off to Mexico. I have lived in Balmain for 30 years and designed our new home built 10 years ago. Like all Balmain people, we love the village atmosphere while being within easy reach of the harbour, parks, the CBD and all its amenities. We also love our home.
