Balmain, New South Wales, Australia
Our home is a comfortable Georgian sandstone house overlooking Sydney Harbour and Mort Bay in Balmain. It's welcoming with lots of space both inside and out. On the long front verandah, it is great to sit and overlook the garden, on the rear verandah there is a broad view of the harbour. Built in the 1850's by a mariner William Sawyer, it is now an artist's and engineer's home with music, books and artworks. The kitchen is contemporary and the living room is easy to relax in. There are 2 spacious bedrooms with queen size beds and quality linen. The separate office overlooks the harbour and has a wireless printer. High speed internet and free local and national phone calls are included. The garden is tropical with frangipanis, bromeliads, birds nest ferns and kitchen herbs - it's almost self-caring, though occasional watering is always helpful. There is off street parking, really essential here in Balmain. The ferries from Balmain Wharf or East Balmain Wharf are frequent and run 7 days/week and provide a very practical way to access Circular Quay and the city - Circular Quay is an excellent transport hub to other urban and rural destinations. Balmain and Rozelle have excellent cafes and restaurants in abundance though it's quieter right now. It's a 5-10 minute walk to the local shops and supermarkets. Woolworths is open from 7.30 am to 10pm every day. There are also very good weekend markets nearby - an organic farmers market in Orange Grove Markets every Saturday morning. The wonderful second hand market at Rozelle Primary School is open every Saturday. In brief, it is a distinctive well kept historic house within a vibrant community with a strong connection to inner Sydney's maritime heritage. We love it and we know that the guests who have lived here have not been disappointed. Please ask us whatever you need to know to make your stay work for you.
