WITH its bay win­dows, bal­conies and laced iron balustrades, you might won­der if this ro­man­tic home was in South­ern France.

But Aus­tralia’s dis­tinct beauty is never far away, with open bush­land and gi­ant gum trees on its doorstep.

“There is a never end­ing se­lec­tion of bird life,” the cur­rent own­ers said. “The mopoke owl most nights, or kook­abur­ras through­out the day… We can still re­mem­ber our first night in the house, we were wo­ken by the mag­pies war­bling. It was some­thing we had not ex­pe­ri­enced be­fore and now we look for­ward to it ev­ery Au­gust.”

Built in 1983, the home has had just two own­ers. The cur­rent own­ers moved in when their chil­dren were just two and four-years old – now they are 24 and 26 and mum and dad are look­ing to down­size.

“The house has suited us for the young, teenage and adult years and we have al­ways been able to have our own space,” they said.
