Lease Our House For 12 Months

We’re leaving our big house for 12+ months (from July 2014) & we need you to lease it.
20 acres, 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (and an ensuite), 1.5 kitchens, office space, dinning room, views of the Tamar River etc. 20 minutes outside of Launceston, Tasmania.

Our house needs a little work, some of which we will do in the next few months, but otherwise it is a very relaxed “non-fussy” place that just needs a family (maybe even a couple of pets) to hang out in it for at least 12 months while we are away.

You will be able to move in July 2014 and stay until at least August/September 2015 – we would need you to sign a 1 year lease.

The house will be unfurnished as we’re moving all our stuff into a container (and hopefully getting rid of a lot of things we don’t need!).  The original part of the house has double glazing and there are 2 wood-fires at either end of the house, that keep us toasty in winter (we plan to leave plenty of wood in the wood shed) – we’ve found not having a heat pump has kept our power bill down 🙂

The house lends its self to a large or extended family, with a second small kitchen and bedroom with an ensuite and external door.  There are loads of possibilities for those interested in hanging out in our bit of paradise for a year!

All this for just $375.00 a week!

For anyone willing to watch our 4 year old family friendly Border Collie, Tiger we will look favourably on your application 🙂 – just let us know in your application.  You can see what an awesome dog Tiger is in this video -> click here for the video on Tiger.

Email: info@upsticksandgo.com if you are interested – we would love to hear from you!

Earlier this week we had the kids passport photos taken!  They don’t look particularly happy in these photos, but thats just because you aren’t allowed to smile in your passport photos.  All three are actually VERY happy about getting closer to our leaving date! We have an appointment in a couple of weeks to put the passport paper work in, so lots of...

One of the interesting things which we learnt while in the Philippines was that you could get your way through a menu with out ordering monkeys brains by Googling the names of the food you didn’t recognise.  For example we discovered that a Leche Flan is the Filipino version of a creme Caramel and its delicious!  We ordered that a few times once we knew what it was...
