I’m definitely showing my age quoting the British comedy in the heading for this property so for those of you first home buyers that I want to attract, please google “the good life”. (Here’s a link to a good episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5HbG3zJWwI)

After 41 years of good living, raising their children on the organic goodness they grow, Lola and Tony are giving it up. All except for the location, they still want to be able to walk to the Palms, so have purchased just one block away.

Still in totally original condition you’ll see exactly what you’re buying; a big house on a big section WITHOUT a big price tag. First home buyers and young families will not only be able to actually afford the mortgage here but will save on groceries from growing your own fruit, vegetables and eggs.

There’s fish in the pond, artichokes in the vegetable garden, capsicums in the green house, grapes on the vine, chickens in the chook house, love birds in the aviary, kiwifruit under the pergola, Tony taking a nap outside in the hobbies room (we will be taking him says Lola). But if you could come and take care of everything else, they would love to hand you the keys right after we move out in June!
