Hi We've lived many years in Canberra, but the winter is too hard on my wife. We're looking at somewhere where we can retire. .North or south of Sydney would be OK. We have a daughter in Newcastle, though perhaps Newcastle prices might be a bit high (just judging on a quick look through the property websites). .Too far north, and the summer humidity might be a factor. .Prices are a definite factor. It would be nice to be able to get something suitable and have something left over. Our own house has a separate granny flat which is being let out, so selling would release that part of the equity. Our retirement funds are a bit tight. .A place that's large enough for Woolies/Coles, plus Aldi, and Bunnings. Presumably a place that size would have adequate medical facilities and a hospital. .While a beach is nice, it's not high on the priority. Striking distance of the beach if not on the beach might be good. We'd prefer a standalone house, a townhouse at a pinch. A minimum of two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and car space for two cars (at least one undercover) would be good. We'd prefer some gardening space, but not too much. A quick search found Nowra as possibly fitting the criteria, although we have no idea what it's like, and can't visit ATM. Any thoughts would be welcome. Thank you!
