First impression of our house

We are extremely happy with the outcome of our house in Mount Waverley which we can call our home.

Our house in Mount Waverley

Here the description and pictures from the real estate agent:

If you are looking for a light & bright property with lots of style then look no further! In a perfect location this three bedroom family home with secure entrance features separate formal dining, spacious lounge, kitchen with stainless steel appliances and dishwasher. Main bedroom on the lower level, complete with full ensuite. The 2nd & 3rd bedrooms are located upstairs with the main bathroom located conviently. The property is fully enclosed and has a fabulous outdoor entertaining area, undercover parking for 2 cars with a low maintenance garden.

And our impression of:

The kitchenOur kitchen

The kitchen is compact, but it has gas and enough work space. The gap on the left we have to fill with a fridge. It is normal here that you bring your own fridge/freezer. As you can see the gab has the size of 2 cupboards, so that must be a very important item.

Behind the kitchen is a laundry room. That is where the back entrence is as well.

The hallwayour staircase

The staircase in the hallway of the main entrance. The kitchen and the master bedroom on the left. Ypu can see a tiny bir of the kitchen. The formal dining and the living room are on the right. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. One bedroom in the back and one up front. Both upstairs rooms have built in beds that look very cosy. The upstairs is a bit more then half the size of downstairs.

The bathroomOur bathroom

The master bedroom downstairs has an ensuite with toilet, sink and shower. The main bathroom is upstairs, with toilet, bath and shower. We do not remember if there was a seperate toilet downstairs, but we guess there is, otherwise there would be no guest toilet.

The gardenthe garden

The view from the living room. A small but cosy garden. On the left a carport big enough for two cars next to each other.

There are no pictures of the living room, but that looks nice as well. The high ceiling gives it an open feeling.

We asked the agent to give our contact details to the current tenant. Hopefully they will contact us before the end of this week, so we might be able to make an appointment and take some pictures.


Mother, wife, explorer and loving the outdoors. We recently moved to Australia, so lots to explore here. We are keeping a blog about our experiences of moving and living on a different continent as a family.

    1. Es ist so toll, dass ihr mit dem Gefühl zurück kommt: Wir haben ein Haus in unserer neuen Heimat. Die Kinder freuen sich auch total. Wir freuen uns auf euch, ihr bringt sicher eine Menge Bilder mit. Also schlaft viel auf dem Rückflug, damit ihr beim vielen Erzählen nicht einschlaft…
      Liebe Grüße und Knuffels aus Elmshorn

  3. Na, das ist ja eine schöne Nachricht! Herzlichen Glückwunsch!!!
    Wenn da noch jemand drin wohnt, heißt das, dass Ihr nicht jetzt schon bezahlen müsst, oder?
    Papierkram ist natürlich jetzt angesagt, aber angesichts eines Hauses jetzt bestimmt leichter.
    Ein paar Tage habt Ihr ja noch, so dass Ihr das eine oder andere noch erledigen könnt, z.B. Kühlschrank aussuchen.
    Also, super, prima! Und ganz liebe Grüße und Danke für die Karte aus Duisburg und Düsseldorf.
