Barry's place and castle
I am a mature gentleman in great physical fitness living on my own in a standalone house. I am retired and my wife died in July 2018. To enable a bit of freedom from house and cat will allow me to visit my daughters who live in Adelaide and Bali.
I was a technology manager for the Sydney Olympic Games and also a project manager for 3 telco now called Vodafone....
My interests include antiques and many crafts such as working with wood. + More info
Our Home & Location
My house is full brick and warm in winter and cool in summer. There are 4 bedrooms a studio and office/library. It also has 2 bathrooms and a laundry.
Outside there is quite a large garden with a mixture of natives and other plants. At the bottom of the garden there is a work shed and at the side of house a car port....
The house is situated in a quiet street with no through traffic. The area is regarded as a desirable one to live as transport is readily available at end of road going to CBD or to beaches. The closest harbour beach can be reached in 10 minutes by car or a 20 minute stroll. There are many harbour walks close by, Taronga zoo and many heritage areas of interest. Many schools are also close by. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
The responsibilities will be similar to probably the majority of owners.
To generally look after the house and keep it clean as you would have found it....
Ensure utilities are switched off when not in use and look after things as you would your own house.
Take care of Henry the cat, he really is no problem and is quite friendly in his old age. Feed him twice a day and clean out his tray. Food and litter is stocked sufficiently for your stay.
