Looks like a great, homey place.
Dealing with the lawn could well be a right pain in the arse, though. (Keeping it both alive and mown, that is.)
Aiming to give a chunk of it over to trees, veggies, and a corner of nothing but local native stuff allowed to go wild.
That'll reduce the amount to mow a bit, eventually.
Front yard is big enough to also have some trees in it. May plant some fruit trees so the neighbours can pinch some now and again.
Cool! Oven a bit further out of young'n's reach and requires less bending to access. And definitely not lacking in back yard there.
It looks awesome!! Yay house!!!
Look fabulous, particularly the big back yard. I'm a big proponent that ALL kids should have a childhood with a big back yard. I know not always possible, but damn! When I think of the fun my brothers and I had in our massive back yards, first Penrith then here in Canberra, it makes me weep for kids who have a balcony on the apartment. I mean, how do you play cricket, or do your own olympics in that space?
The land used to belong to a school, so this backyard actually has its own cricket pitch. It's no that well placed, but I kind of like it :)
There's a small playground on the nearest corner, and a small art gallery one or two doors down.
Sounds the perfect place to raise a family. And having your own private cricket pitch! You're now almost obligated to raise the next Aussie cricket captain :)
That is one big arse backyard. I like it.
BTW, did I miss something? Did you buy a house? (I don't keep up with your tweets.)
We put in an offer, it's been accepted, so as long as nothing goes wrong, it'll be our within a month or so.
And I don't keep up with anyone's tweets or LJs. But I'm sure that improve once we have two children :)
Ooh. Very nice. And in my erratic online-ness I'd missed you were moving and/or buying till now, so congratulations!
Been looking ever since we moved to Canberra. Made an offer on this place and it's been accepted, so hopefully nothing will go wrong.
congratulations Danny, Sharon, Lex and soon to be born little one on your new house....soooooooo excited for you all
hugs and love
