What you will love about this home
My home is an historic school, converted a while back to make an unusual living space. It has a very beautiful and large garden to wander in or sit a while. There are many lovely outdoor spaces to barbecue your dinner - or enjoy a glass of wine.
It is about 6km from a small country town. The closest town (for shopping, cinema, going out to dinner) is about 12 kms away. Not far from where I live is a man-made lake, which is lovely to swim in, in the summer time. Melbourne is about 100km away.
What you will love in the neighborhood
It is a country-style neighbourhood so my closest neighbours live quite distant from my home. There is abundant bird life (Australian birds of course), so occasionally the 'noise' from all the birds calling, whistling and singing is almost deafening! The closest towns are between 6-12 kms away but there are many restaurants, cafes and hotels to go out for a meal. There is a wonderful old cinema, which shows alternative style films. The local botanical gardens is a lovely place to walk around or enjoy a picnic. Many music events are held locally as well.
