Just imagine uninterrupted views of the Harbour Bridge and surrounding water regions from an inner city peninsula as the new decade begins.

The pleasures of an Australian summer will be at your fingertips when your adventures are based at this inner city home. Close enough to the city that it is visible over the tops of buildings, yet on its own peninsula, removed from the hustle and bustle.

Our home would suit a couple or small family. There is a main bedroom and a second kids bedroom located on the first floor. The ground floor encompasses a spacious living area and an open modern, fully equipped “Cook’s Kitchen” with Gaggenau appliances and well stocked pantry.

There is separate study and front sitting room with lovely view to the trees and the fish pond at the front of the house. The study includes an Apple desktop computer and a printer and scanner for guests use if they need. The front sitting room has a television and a large number of books from a wide range of genres.

On the ground floor is a laundry with a washing machine and dryer with a small well appointed bathroom just behind. On the first floor is the main bathroom, including a shower, two sinks so there are no arguments and a large bath with private views into the nearby treetops. From may perspective you can enjoy sightings of the local wildlife, from Lorikeets to Kookaburra

The location is central to Sydney with easy transport into the CBD via the roads on a bus or by water on a ferry. From there you can easily travel to any part of Sydney. If public transport isn’t your style there is also off street parking for any vehicles you may have access to.

This is a well presented home where everything works as you would expect. We have accommodated guests from the United Kingdom and United States of America and have always given us positive feedback.

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.
