1 story house in Bedford, Australia

My large 4 bedroom home also has an office with internet [wireless] and telephone/fax facilities.  Recycle air conditioners in the family room and main bedroom provide cool in summer and warmth in winter. There are heaters in the other bedrooms.  But the winters are very mild and no heavy clothing is needed. solar panels are on the roof.
The family room has the kitchen close by and dining, as well to walk out onto the patio to relax and perhaps have a spa.  The garage is also close here.  Television points are in the family and lounge room and a portable TV could be used in the main bedroom.  
Our home has a family feeling, ensuite to main bedroom, shower near the laundry and two other toilets.  Easy drying is under protection at the back of the house.
The train station is 1.5km and then 12 minutes to the central station in Perth and all that the city has. The bus stop is about 200 metres away, runs every 5-10 minutes and takes 20 minutes to the city, passing supermarkets, pubs and cafes.
A free bus service [CAT] around the city will take you to the river and ferries for the zoo, river cruises as well as boats to Rottnest Island 40 kms from the mainland. 
Wineries are 20-30 kms from the city - as well as country retreats near wineries all about a 4 hour drive south of Perth.  A 30 km drive takes you into the Australian bush or just 6kms to Kings Park for bush, wildflowers, views, cafes, picnic places, cycle tracks, Guided Walks or by yourself - do have your camera! A free bus service [935] is direct from St Georges Terrace to Kings Park.
Beaches for swimming, surfing, picnics and cafes are very handy by car, bus, train and so relaxing. picnics by the river are very pleasant in a public park.  Take the opportunity in the winter months to journey to the north of the state when that weather is cooler and see the wonderful geographical areas,  deserts and wildflowers.  The amazing Ningaloo Reef is a 2-3 day drive north or take a bus or flight to Exmouth.
Check out the International Film Festivals at some cinemas, Opera in the Park in February, symphony in the City in December.
Perth is a wonderful place to holiday for adults or with children any time of the year - many cafes' and open spaces for children. during school holidays there are extra facilities for children's play. it's also a great stepping off for the Eastern States, Asia and New Zealand. 
Come and enjoy this city in the comfort of a family home in a pleasant suburb of Perth.
