Beautiful 2 Bedroom Sydney Home

Our home in Sydney is in a quiet tree-lined street. It was built in 1913 (old for Australia) and is recently fully restored. You will find everything you need for an extended stay, whether you are in Sydney to work or to enjoy life.

Within 200m you will find a supermarket, plus Indian, Thai, Chinese and Italian restaurants. Within 2km there are dozens more cafes and restaurants of many international cuisines, as well as 3 shopping plazas, medical centres and 10 excellent schools. Nearby are hubs of Chinese, Korean, Indian and Sri-Lankan culture.

It is 15 minutes’ walk to a major train station (5 minutes by bus) with direct trains to the city in 20 minutes. Around the corner are buses to train stations, the city, the Australian Catholic University, University of Sydney and University of Technology.

In each of the 2 large bedrooms there is a queen size bed and big wardrobe. The study (or 3rd bedroom) has desk, wardrobe and bookshelves. We also have an inflatable double mattress for guests.

The large separate living room has a 3-seat sofa, 2 reclining chairs and large flat-screen TV with DVD player.

The open kitchen is fully equipped with new stone benches plus all appliances and equipment for gourmet cooking. The 2 modern bathrooms have shower, toilet and sink; the main bathroom also has bathtub.

The bright dining area seats 6 comfortably, and there is outdoor furniture for 6 in the covered courtyard garden. The front veranda is a pleasant place to sit for morning coffee or an afternoon beer, looking onto our beautiful garden.

The internal laundry is equipped with washing machine, tumble-dryer and sink, with extra bench and cupboards.

There is plenty of free parking outside on the street and a secure place for 1 car on the property.

Fast internet, electricity and water are included in the rental price. With negotiation of an additional fee we also offer use of a 2015 Kia Cerato sedan with built-in satellite navigation. The car is regularly serviced and very fuel efficient, with low kilometres.

About Me
I am an Australian conductor and composer, retired after 35 years as a music teacher/lecturer, now working independently on compositions for choirs and orchestras. I have regular engagements with International Festivals in several European countries - Austria, Italy and Slovakia every year and occasionally in Russia, Latvia, Sweden, Germany, Croatia, UK. I have travelled and worked extensively in different parts of the world and toured my own orchestras and choirs from Australia to Europe and Asia on many occasions. I am currently seeking a quiet place in Europe to work on my projects during 6 months in 2019.
