Maybe a stipud question but having never been, my wife and I are wondering which part of the city would best suit us, and therefore be a good place to spend some time researching and visiting when we come over next year.
Our current situation
We are a mid 30's couple with no children.
We currently live in a cul-de-sac halfway between Bristol and Bath and enjoy having 2 cities 10 mins away in a train. We like being next to a river, having local shops just a 5 min walk away and 5 local drinking establishments.
My commute to work is about 30mins by car.
Our house is worth about £200k and we have about £80k mortgage.
I am a printer and Carol, my wife, is a Legal Executive (as yet, we have found no Aussie comparison to this job title)
Basically, we enjoy being near a city, but not too close! We want local convenience shops/pubs . Being near a beach would be nice but not essential.
Ideally, we would like a 3 bedroom house.
Obviously the lower the mortgage the better, but if we were both working I dont see any reason why we shouldnt have another £80k mortgage
4 companies that I would like to work for are based in: Mile End, Thebarton, Regency Park and woodville North.
Just looking at a map, Klemzig, Kidman Park, Felixstowe, Campbelltown and Flinders Park look likely contenders... any comments?
