Thanks mudhen. We’ve actually gone off the Callington property a bit in the last day or so. We’re worried it’s a bit small (the house) and that we’ll come to resent it after long commutes day after day. There are some great places at Mt Pleasant that we’re going to check out on the weekend too. I think it’s given us a push to commit to moving one way or the other (or at least give it a fair go). Will let you know how the search goes!June 29, 2013 at 1:40 pm #532975
We went and looked at this property today:

Anyhoo, it was gorgeous! Even better in person than in the photos. We’re going to put in an offer – really and truly! So, now we’re busy cleaning our own home to put on the market. Gosh, I hope they take our offer. We are so excited, I don’t want it to fall through now.
Does anyone from ALS live near there? Any hints/tips/suggestions/local knowledge?
I think we’ll send the kids to Birdwood Primary School. Has anyone heard anything about it? Is it a good school? Are there better schools in the area?
TIA. I’ll keep you all in the loop about how it goes…June 29, 2013 at 3:17 pm #532976jaden62Member
We’re just in the process of moving too. Same size house, but with a bigger yard & a different shed set-up so that hubby can start his business. I was really hoping we’d be able to move out to Two Wells/Lewiston way, but we haven’t gotten that far. Nearer to FrootLoopz, but not out where I wanted. Oh well, you never know what will happen in the future.June 29, 2013 at 5:47 pm #532977
Good luck with the move Jaden62!June 29, 2013 at 8:00 pm #532978fruitfulMember
hey Bel, that place in Mt Pleasant looks great, it’s a nice area out there and they have a farmers market going in the town. It does tend to be a lot colder out that way than it is in Adelaide, but the same is true here and we manage well enough.
My nephews and niece went to Birdwood school, they enjoyed it and I have only heard good things about that school from others in casual conversation.
Fingers crossed that this is IT for you and your family!!

Thanks fruitful. The market was on when we were on our way up there the other day. If I hadn’t already been to the market back in town, I would’ve called in. I love the feel of all the little towns up there – lots of little local butchers and that kind of thing.
Thanks for your comments about the school. Fingers crossed!!June 30, 2013 at 12:59 am #532980BobbeeMember
Good luck Bel.

It looks really nice Bel. Good luck with your offerJuly 1, 2013 at 2:40 am #532983dierichParticipant
good luck Bel, it looks lovely!July 1, 2013 at 3:07 am #532984jrose6Member
Wish your family all the best Bel, if meant to be, then your offer will be accepted- looks like what you have been looking for and better rainfall than Callington!July 2, 2013 at 12:36 am #532985
Thanks for all your encouragement guys. We put in an offer yesterday, so just waiting for them to get back to us now. We might go up and look at another place in Birdwood on the weekend, just in case this place falls through. Now we’ve decided we’ll move, we’ve started cleaning up the house, got a real estate agent on board and started thinking about moving schools etc. If we don’t move this time, it’ll never happen!!July 2, 2013 at 12:39 am #532986

Thanks Bel, gosh your organisied. Havnt put our offer in just yet as there was about 30 years wearth of old cars and stuff around the place so am waiting for it to be cleaned up a bit. went past for another look and its half way there so we are just waiting to see it when its finished so we can base our price on how much work it is going to take us. its just land and we are going to build so we wont be in for another 12 months or so but am so excited, it has been so long in the waiting.July 2, 2013 at 4:48 pm #532988
How exciting Dianne! Have you decided what sort of house you’re going to build if you get the land?
